Cluttering the room full of toys or decorations before the foster child arrives can make it feel like they are moving into someone else’s room. So keep it simple at first and then encourage them to choose things to put in their room. This helps the foster child or young person to make the room their own. It is also a good idea to keep the colour scheme warm and neutral to avoid picking a colour that is not to their taste. They are also more likely to take care of the room if they have helped to decorate it.
When a person decides to become a foster parent, they often wonder the best way of setting up a bedroom for foster care. Waiting for the call is tough, and shopping and painting and all the decorating can be a fun way to pass the time. As tempting as it is to go overboard, my biggest advice is not to go overboard. I know how cute everything looks in a store when you’re bored. But who knows if you’ll ever have a placement during the summer who fits in 2t clothing and loves frilly dresses the way you love that adorable sleeveless thing you just saw on Etsy. Go minimal. You can always buy more specific things later when a placement arrives.
