Decorating your kid’s room is both fun and challenging. Of course, you’d want their personal space to be cozy, comfortable, and stylish yet practical on your budget. One thing you should know is that your kids don’t really care how much it costs as long as they love it — always have this mindset when decorating your kid’s room. You don’t need expensive furniture and fixtures. Get creative! Make their personal space beautiful without spending a large amount of money. Here’s how.
Find the Right Color
Today, children are going beyond conventions. For example, girls don’t always want frosty pinks or pastels. Some boys on the other hand, prefer to choose decorations that show off the things that they love, like sports, favorite cartoon character, or computer games.
When it comes to choosing room colors, it is important to consider a few things:
It’s a good idea to use bold colors for your little girl’s room. Ask her if she likes dark pinks or bright shades. You can also consider using neutral colors with some splashes of bold shades like red or fuchsia. This creates an elegant and eye-catching space. If you want the room to easily transition from a kid’s room to a teen girl’s room, use colors like grey, beige, or light brown.
You can add a vibrant splash of color — like red, blue or yellow — to at least one side of your son’s room. The rest can be painted with either a lighter color or a neutral shade. You can also experiment with patterns. For instance, you can paint the wall with stripes to create a nautical feel.
Add Playful Wall Decals
Installing peel-and-stick decals on walls is an easy way to add character to your kid’s room. This is a fun and hassle-free option, especially if you can’t paint on the walls. To make it more exciting for kids, ask them to pick out the decals. Involving them in the decision making and decorating process will make the experience more exciting,and the results more rewarding. Wall decals are available in a variety ofthemes.
Use Shelves to Maximize WallSpace
Utilize the wall space by adding shelves. You can install wall shelves that go all the way to the ceiling and use it to store books, toys and other treasured items. You can also add floating shelves to hold your kid’s favorite decorations. If you don’t have enough space for a closet, you can make use of wall-mounted rods to hang both fun.
Add Personality to a Shared Room
A shared bedroom doesn’t alwayshave to be chaotic. Let your kid’s uniqueness shine by creating a space thatreflects their personality. Their bedding or furniture doesn’t always have tomatch. Let your kids pick out their bedding, accessories, and wall decals tohang on their side of the bed. Create a coherent theme by using a similar shadeof wall paint or choosing matching beds but with different bedding design. You can also consider adding a dividerbetween the beds. An easy and affordable way to do this is by installing aceiling-mounted rod with a colorful curtain in between their beds. A bookcase or dresser also works well as a divider, creating a semi-private space for each child.
Your kids won’t stay little forever. Create a fun, safe, and comfortable space where they can bbuild memories. Enjoy decorating your kid’s room and make sure you also take their ideas into account.
