7 Factors To Consider When Designing a Kid’s Bedroom

One of the most complicated yet exciting areas you can create in a home is a child's room. Designing one entails careful planning and consideration since it is a special place where a child's mental, physical and creative freedom will be nurtured from early on.

There is often not enough space in some houses for a separate playroom, so child's bedroom can be the playroom itself. In Asian culture, most families who can afford separate bedrooms for their kids still prefer siblings to share space so as to encourage them to make them more close-knit. On the other hand, parents may have to deal with their kids' disputes over territory, bedtimes, and belongings. But this needn't become a problem, as long as your rooms are efficient and flexible.

Here are some important factors when decorating a kid's room;

For your kid's room to last a good number of years, it has to be able to adapt to every age group without you having to redecorate it entirely.

Focal Point
Choose a focal point. For long term benefits, use solid colors for most of the room and isolate the accents (mural, wall pattern, stencil, or wallpaper) on only one or two walls. You can even make the ceiling your focal point.

Limit your theme to accessories. Remember, the soft furnishings like curtains and bed sheets are the easiest to change according to your child's age, so if you must choose a theme, try to limit the accessories and focus on things that an easily change when the kids grow up.

Provide plenty of open shelves for storage and display. What starts out as a toys-and-games area will eventually be a collector's display of their treasures when they grow up.

What's New
Use hot kiddie trends. If you want your kid to stay at home, you need a room they can be proud to bring their friends home to.

Colors And Patterns
Former fave kids' colors like baby pinks and sky blues have given way to hues that will give a vibrant lift to the room, like bright orange, fuchsia, lime green, etc. Furniture can also be painted in bold colors and patterns. When juxtaposed with bright walls, this will give the room an energetic and happy feel.

Murals or accent walls with a design specifically created for the little client are unique and especially suited to the room's proportions. More parents nowadays are willing to spend on this magical feature, for the sheer beauty and artistry of images that will develop a child's imagination.

While it can be tempting to paint the room yourself, let professional exterior and interior painters handle this job, not only to save your valuable time, but also to make the process go smoothly and quickly.

What can happen if you get arrested for DUI?

Driving under the influence is forbidden by the law of the USA. DUI is one of the main reasons people die in car accidents. Driving under the influence is dangerous thing for society and it needs to be punished strictly. Therefore, it is.
If you are arrested for drunken driving in any state in the U.S., there are several things that are going to happen that will cost you money. If you are convicted of driving under the influence and you want to get your driving privileges back, things are going to get very expensive.

What are the potential consequences?

Mug shot - If you are arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, the first thing that will happen is you will be placed into a police vehicle and taken to the nearest police station or jail. There your photograph (mug shot) will be taken and you will be fingerprinted.

Court - At the time of your arrest, you will be given a ticket or a summons that tells you the date that you have to appear in court to face driving under the influence charges.

Loss of a driving license - In all states, even for a first-time conviction, your sentence will include the loss of driving privileges for a period of time. Even in states that offer a hardship license that allows you to drive to work or school during the time your license is revoked or suspended, your driving privileges are drastically curtailed.

Paying a fine - If you are convicted of driving while intoxicated, part of your sentence will definitely include paying a fine. All states have laws setting minimum and maximum fines for drunk driving, but those penalties can be enhanced by other circumstances.

Expensive insurance - In most states, if you get a drunk driving conviction, you will have to get a special insurance policy, known as SR-22 insurance, before you can drive a vehicle.

The cost of SR-22 insurance, in states where it is required, can double or even triple your premiums. Usually, you will be required to carry this most expensive auto insurance for a period of three years.

Teens and DUI: Drunk driving is not fun!

Teens feel like they have conquered a world when they first get their driver’s license. However, that attitude doesn’t serve them or society in general.
It is important for teens to remember, however, that this new privilege of driving also comes with the set of important responsibilities. In an ideal society, teens would wait until they are of legal age to consume alcohol before having their first drink. Unfortunately, teens consider breaking the law fun, so they have their first drink long before their legal age.

Car accidents and drunk driving

On an average weekend, a car-crash is responsible for the death of one teen every hour. In over 45% of those crashes, alcohol is involved. Overall, motor vehicle crashes cause the deaths of over 35% of people aged 16-20. Of that percentage, it is estimated that 36.1% are due to alcohol involvement. Every year, more than 28,000 people lose their lives due to alcohol or drug related crashes.

How to prevent this behavior?

Some of the biggest factors that aid in preventing teens from drinking and driving include parental monitoring, zero tolerance laws, restrictions on the legal drinking age, and graduated driver licenses. All of these factors are responsible for keeping teens safe on the road. Minimum Legal Drinking Age (MLDA) laws are uniform throughout the entire United States of America. Merchants have a legal obligation to prohibit the sale of alcohol to anyone under the age of 21.

Tips to prevent driving under the influence

Parental monitoring can be one of the greatest means of prevention. Parent-teen driving agreements and also an enforcement of driving privilege plan can help reduce the risk of teens drinking and driving.

Also, teens should be aware of the consequences their behavior can have. Parents should advise them before any party that they should either call them or a cab. One day these young people will become adults, and they have to know that besides having rights they have responsibilities too. Raising responsible kids would benefit society a lot.

Dangers of drinking and driving

Not only drinking is excessive drinking is bad for your mental and physical health, it can impact enormously your loved ones, and other members of society. If you sit drunk behind the wheel you are not only risking your life, but many others.

The best case scenario is that no one gets hurt and you get punished by the law for irresponsible behavior. Unfortunately, most often someone gets hurt.
Although traffic fatalities have been on the decline in recent years, alcohol-related crashes still kill about 10,000 people per year in the United States.

Despite all the warnings, public awareness and educational programs, stiffer penalties for violations, people will still get behind the wheel of their vehicles while intoxicated. Motor vehicle wrecks are the leading cause of death in the United States for persons under age 24, whether as the driver or the passenger, with almost half involving alcohol as a factor in the crash.

Are you sure you are driving better when drinking?

With only BAC of 0.02 you are 1.4 times more likely to have an accident than someone who is sober. One of the problems with setting the legal limit for "drunk driving" at a blood-alcohol content level of 0.08 is it sends the message that if you are not yet legally drunk, you are therefore okay to drive.

Be smart, stay safe

If you are planning to go to a party or on a holiday, there is no need to limit yourself. Go ahead, have fun, have a few drinks, but don’t sit behind a wheel. Plan ahead your transportation options, and keep yourself, and your loved ones safe. It is so easy to have fun and protect yourself, it just takes a couple of minutes for organizing.

Consider calling a cab or using a rideshare app to get yourself and your loved ones home safely, and protect everyone else on the road. Better yet, if you are going to be drinking away from home, use those options so you don't have a car handy you'll be tempted to drive when your judgment is impaired by alcohol.

What is the difference between DUI and DWI?

Driving under the influence (DUI) is not the same thing as DWI. Driving while intoxicated or driving while impaired can have different meanings, or they can refer to the same offense, depending on the state in which you were pulled over.
However, both DUI and DWI mean that a driver is being charged with a serious offense that risked the health and safety of himself and other members of society.

The multiple definitions of DUI and DWI

Some state law refers to the offense of drunken driving as a DUI while others call it a DWI. On the other hand, depending on a state law both terms are describing either drunken driving or impaired driving.

It gets even more complicated when states use both terms. Quite often, they will refer one to alcohol and the other to impairment by drugs or an unknown substance and the meaning can change from state to state. In some states, DWI refers to driving while intoxicated of alcohol with blood alcohol content (BAC) over the legal limit, while DUI is used when the driver is charged with being under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

What are the consequences of a conviction?

When you get your driver's license back, you will likely need SR-22 insurance. This could double or triple your premiums, depending on the laws in your state. On average, you can expect to pay the higher premiums for three years.

Also, depending on the state in which you reside, you may be required to have an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle. You will not be able to start your car unless you blow into the device and it determines you have not been drinking alcohol. This requires that you pay for the device, its installation, and a monthly monitoring fee.

The point is that getting arrested for driving under the influence is a time-consuming and very expensive. It is, however, totally avoidable. Just don't get behind the wheel while you are drinking or taking any type of drug.
