A child’s bedroom is supposed to be a sanctuary, and a place where they can retreat, let their imagination run free, and also where they can get some work done. It’s also one of the hardest to decorate. But with a few tips and ideas, you can turn any space into a room your kids will love. Here are some decoration ideas that will take your child’s room to the next level.
Add a Teepee
Kids love having a hiding spot, and while a makeshift fort might be cool, a teepee is even better. These are fairly affordable, and you can find them online on sites like Amazon for as little as $60. You can decorate them with lights and make the whole room western-inspired. Either way, they would make a perfect addition to any child’s room.
Add a Chalkboard Wall
If there’s another thing that children love, it’s writing on the walls. However, a cool alternative would be to add a chalkboard wall. Chalkboard paint can be found virtually everywhere. You could dedicate a corner of the room to drawing and paint part of the wall with the paint. Make sure that it’s at the perfect height and have plenty of chalk of different colors so they can express their creativity.
Mix Colors and Patterns
Don’t be afraid to go wild with colors and patterns. Don’t forget that this is for a child, so it’s not the time to be conservative. Trying to match everything will make the room boring and mixing it up is the best way to give it more personality.
Why not go for a different color for the ceiling, and add some decals while you’re at it? You can also add some different textures and colors with things like art pieces, carpets, and multi-color throw pillows.
Use Paint to Give Furniture a Second Life
If you’re on a budget, one of the things you could do is repurpose old furniture and repaint it. A wood table might look drab at first glance but painting it in something like a warm coral hue or a pastel color could give it a second life and make it a colorful addition to a room.
Go Fabric Shopping
You’d be surprised at how many things you could do on your own with the right fabrics on hand. With a little bit of stitching, you could turn fabric into beautiful and original bedding, pillow cover, blankets, or curtains. So, we strongly suggest you give stitching a try and take a visit to your closest fabric store and see what could work in your room. You can also show them a picture of the room or the colors you were thinking of using and they’ll give you some suggestions that would work with the color palette.
Make it personal
To really give your child a sense of belonging, you can add something to the room that is uniquely them. A neon name sign, personalized wall decals or even customized bedding. If these aren’t in your budget, checkout Pinterest for some DIY solutions.
Decorating a child’s room demands patience, imagination, and a little bit of elbow grease. If you follow these few tips, you’ll be able to improve any room in no time, even on a budget.
