Interior design can be a serious business, but when it’s time to decorate your kid’s bedroom, you can really have some fun. The whole point of this exercise is to create a space your youngster loves to be in, so make sure you consult your child when it comes to the most important design elements like colors, themes and accessories. By doing so, you can guarantee that he or she will be thrilled with the end result.
Toys on display
One great tip is to make inventive use of toys. All kids love toys and to save space and to enhance the overall look of the room, you can put some of the biggest and best of these items on display rather than hiding them all away in drawers and boxes. Dollhouses, LEGO sets, a vast teddy collection; even if your little one has a passion for ghoulish playsets, it can help to give a fun focus to the space. The Monster High Accessory, ‘Spectra Vondergeist’s Bed’ can look fantastic in full view or lit up using spotlights. Also, using touch up paint ideas will indeed serve as great backdrops for your child’s toys. You can check out the web for plenty of sensory room ideas.
Similarly, themed beds are great fun for kids and they can serve as the focal point in their bedroom, especially if with a beautiful wallpaper as backdrop. You can get a UK wallpaper steamer to strip out an old one. The best thing is, it’s now simple to get your hands on items in a range of designs. Whether your little one is into cars or princesses, has a soft spot for a particular cartoon character such as Dora the Explorer or has passion for dinosaurs, there’s a bed out there to make them happy.
If you’re decorating on a budget, it may be wise to stick to a regular bed and combine it with funky duvet covers and cushions that you can easily swap if your child grows out of their current obsessions! By making use of playful wallpaper and touches like custom shaped dresser handles, you make sure the room looks great even without a special bed.
To add to the sense of magic and wonder in the space, it’s a great idea to paint designs on the ceiling or around the top of the walls, creating your own border. Older children may even like to help. Don’t worry if you’re no Rembrandt; there are plenty of stencils on the market that are easy to use. The best thing is, this process is cheap. The stencils themselves cost very little and then all that remains is for you to buy some paint.
Whatever you do, don’t neglect the lighting in your child’s room. By choosing some unusual illuminations, you can dramatically improve the way it looks. For example, fairy lights can look stunning and there are lots of superb nightlights to choose from too. Of course, safety is vital. Any electrical items you buy must meet the highest standards and be suitable for kids’ rooms.
