    Converting a child’s bedroom into a fantasy room can be a great way to make him feel magical at home, and can be done so with a relatively small investment.

-------------------------------------

A child bedroom should be anything but dull. They will surely remember how their first bedroom looked like for the rest of their life. Before children get to the age where they want to choose colors and designs themselves, or want to fill all walls with posters, you are in charge of making their room as lovely as possible. Converting a child’s bedroom into a fantasy room can be a great way to make him feel magical at home, and can be done so with a relatively small investment.

Overall aspect

First things first, you have to look at the room from a general perspective. What is the wallpaper like? Are the colors lively and can they relate to a fantasy environment? How do the entrances and exits of the room look? How are the windows designed? How do the main furniture pieces of the room look?

These are all questions you should answer before getting started on turning it into a fantasy room. Then, if you can or if your child has a big passion for something, try to find a general theme to the room – like race cars, Disney princesses, Narnia, Frozen or cartoons. This will greatly help you in choosing the wallpaper and floor tiles (like drawing snowflakes on a wall, transforming the floor into a race track or changing the door so that it resembles a secret passage) or with picking colors. Remember to choose strong, vibrant colors that don’t necessarily work well with each other, but combined give a fantasy look to the room.

Details

After you’re done with the general aspect of the room, think of how you can use elements like light switches, lamps and sockets. Painting murals behind lamps is always a great idea because the added light gives these scenes a great perspective. Putting sockets behind little doors gives them a very Alice-in-Wonderland feel. Also, use shadows to their full extent – use cutouts between a lamp and a wall to show shadows of your child’s favorite fantasy character. Painting door knobs and window frames is another great way to convert your child’s room into a fantastic environment.

Furniture ideas

Of course, you still have to make the room functional. Although a large space has to be dedicated to toys and playful activities, certain furniture pieces are a necessity. They don’t need to be dull, though! Paining some old chairs and a small coffee table can really set a playful mood to meals and tea parties. Also, painting their furniture with scenes from their favorite cartoon is sure to be a hit. Christmas lights can also be used to spice up details and make the room more vibrant in the 11 months you’re not using them on your tree. These are just a few ideas of what you can do – we’re sure you can think of many more!
