Décor magazines lure young parents into thinking that only a fancy modern design is suitable for their beloved child, but this article will prove that decorating children’s bedroom on a budget can be equally effective. Keep on reading to learn more decorating tips.
Paint is your friend
Make sure that the kid’s room is bursting with colour, as it inspires creativity like anything else. There are many ways you can change a plain looking room with just a few brushstrokes. You can choose a vibrant wall colour, or think of less obvious solutions. A nice idea is to paint the ceiling different colour than the walls. On the other hand, if you have already decided on neutral walls in your kids’ room and you want to spare yourself another big home improvement project, turn an ordinary dresser or a changing table into a colour blocking piece of decor. Choose from a wide range of yellows, oranges and ceruleans to make the furniture burst with colour. It is guaranteed it will brighten the entire room. What is more, it won’t take long to paint it, too!
Reading is an inseparable part of childhood. Which child doesn’t like to fall asleep to the words of A.A. Milne describing the adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh? A great way to organize your child’s favourite books is to create a forward facing display, which, at the same time, will make up for a creative gallery wall that is both beautiful and functional. On such a display you can also put board games and toys. It will be more accessible for kids and easier to organize after a play date.
Find a theme
Arranging a perfect bedroom is much faster if you pick a theme of the room. It can be anything, like the forest, the space or the garden. Just let it be something neutral that does not push your child into stereotypical thinking. Above all, decorative elements for children’s bedrooms should be childish and whimsical, but it is much easier to make consistent decor choices if you decide on one style. Remember that the decorations have great power to inspire wonder in children. Add a startling art piece or a big impressive toy, just for fun. Kids are amazed by different shapes and sizes.
Tame the vintage
Designer furniture can be pretty expensive, but do you really need to choose something extravagant that will leave a hole in your wallet? Statement furniture has been designed for ages, so we strongly recommend a trip to the nearest vintage shop or yard sale where, with a bit of luck, you can stumble upon a great piece of furniture that needs just a bit of retouching.
Do it yourself
We have already mentioned several room improvements that can be easily done overnight. Let’s add a fun little building project to the list! When designing a kids room we need to take into account that it needs to have a certain playfulness to it. A great piece of decor is a tepee. You can build one with just few sticks and some leftover canvas. Install Christmas lights inside, add colourful pillows and soft blankets for a cosy touch.
