The problem with decorating a childs bedroom is that they can change their minds so quickly. So how can you decorate with long term results and not spend a fortune?
Decorating kids bedrooms can be a lot of fun as long as you have a few ideas to get you started. Naturally, when you are decorating kids bedrooms, the colour scheme and theme that you use will largely depend upon the age of the child and any of their favourite hobbies, for example; if your child likes a certain sport, you can incorporate it when you are decorating their room, or if they have a colour that they love you can use that as a base for your colour scheme. Yes, decorating kid’s bedrooms can be a very enjoyable experience, but they can also be one of the most challenging rooms to decorate as well, perhaps in part due to the large number of options that are available!
So, how do you go about decorating kids bedrooms? The first thing that you will need to decide upon is the colour scheme that you are going to use. As mentioned above, it could be that your child has a favourite colour – and if so, this process may be a little easier. Try to stick to the same tones of colour when you are decorating kids bedrooms to create an overall theme i.e. pinks, purples and whites look great together, as do blues and greens. If necessary, get a few paint and material samples from your local DIY and sewing shops and then place them on a mood board to check that they will look good together.
The most important thing to remember when you are decorating kid’s bedrooms is to create a comfy but exciting environment. Children love to be stimulated by their surroundings, so keep the room bright and make sure that the room encourages creativity; as an example, you can include a few educational toys in the bedroom that match the overall colour scheme and theme (as an example; if you are working on a zoo or animal-themed room, look for educational toys in the same theme).
Finally, think about the kind of soft furnishings that you want in your kid’s bedroom. As well as the bedding and curtains, think about the flooring (hard wearing carpets or laminate flooring with a few rugs works very well and can be super practical for cleaning purposes too!). You may want to add a few cushions or beanbags to the room and if you’re feeling very creative, why don’t you make these items yourself using the same material? This can be a brilliant way to create an instant colour scheme at a minimal cost.
Durability really is the key when you are decorating kid’s bedrooms, so use fabrics that can easily be washed or wiped down, the last thing that you want is to have to re-decorate after a few months because the furnishings were not appropriate for the age of the child. Finally, let your imagination run loose and if you need a few ideas for decorating kid’s bedrooms, ask your friends or family for ideas or take a look on the internet to get a little inspiration.
