Talk about kid's room
Recently, the values with regard to residences are changing greatly, and a lot of unique planning can be seen as a result. However, kid's rooms remain standardized. Considering how much influence the environment has on children's values, the role of kid's rooms is significant.
The appearance of kid's rooms in Japan revealed itself around the Taisho period (1912 - 1926). This was the period where women's independence and modernization emerged. During the Showa period (1926-1989), kid's rooms became more prevalent. However, in the 1970's, an increase in domestic violence along with school-rejection syndrome, caused children to have a tendency to lock themselves in their own rooms, which resulted in a lack of family communication. In a way, kid's rooms were considered to be correlated to an increase in juvenile delinquency and social withdrawal. Even now, this kind of thinking is strong, and as a result, more and more people are paying attention to traffic lines and layout plans as a way to eliminate partitions from kid's rooms.
In this article, we have researched kid's rooms in Japan and have compared and contrasted them with Western concepts. When comparing, we considered the social background and the family dynamic in addition to layout planning and interior designs.
