Creating a stylish, yet fun bedroom for your kids doesn't have to be expensive - there are plenty of easy ways to decorate and spruce up their personal space. As it’s for the kids think bold, bright colors and try to pick a consistent theme that can be used throughout the room.
Consult your kids
One of the easiest ways to keep your kids happy with the end result is to involve them in the decorating process. From bedding designs, to wallpaper and funky storage units – there are a variety of styles to suit everyone.
Children’s tastes will change according to age and you can probably never be too sure of what will appeal, especially when it comes to teenagers. Pick up some home decorating magazines or go online to view children’s bedrooms by interior designers, and then use these ideas as a starting base.
Choosing the right color scheme
A wall color scheme is one of the most important starting points. Colors can be used to complement other features of the room such as duvet covers and furniture such as tables and cupboards. Choosing bright colors also has the advantage of opening up a smaller space, making it appear larger. If bedrooms are small then remember to stick up a large mirror or two in order bring in more light and to open up the room.
Brighten up blank wall spaces
An easy to implement, fun idea is to paint some items directly onto the walls using stencils. Get your kids to choose the images they like such as balloons, animals, aeroplanes or boats. Match up the design colors to ceiling or table lampshades and consider adding the same stenciled designs to cupboard doors. This is a great way to set a theme in place throughout the room; getting the colors and design right will make the room look unique and funky.
Avoid a cluttered look
Keep it simple and avoiding cramming too much furniture into your children’s bedrooms. Kids amass a huge amount of toys, books and clothes, and storage options are the best way to keep a room tidy.
Also take care to choose the right size of bed - they now come in a variety of shapes and sizes including the always fun bunk beds, so take your time and consider the amount of space available and requirements that you have.
These easy to implement ideas aren’t expensive and are a great way to get your kids involved in redecorating their rooms. A bright and fun bedroom will be someplace they will look forward to spending some time in rather than dread!
