5 Tips to Decorate Your Child’s Room

Disclosure - This is a collaborative post 

Decorating a children’s bedroom can be a lot of fun, but creating a space that both you and your child will love for years to come isn’t always easy. There’s a lot to consider, including the size of the space on offer, the age of your child(ren) and your budget. Here are five tips to help.

Having a storage unit that allows children to tidy up after themselves should be a top priority. It means messes can easily be cleared away and gives your child ownership over their space, encouraging them to take responsibility for keeping their bedroom clean and tidy. You can opt for a bay window storage unit that is easily accessible for little hands and also provides a comfy seat for reading.

Keep it Simple

When it comes to kids’ rooms, there can be a temptation for parents to go overboard including everything they wish they’d had as a youngster but when it comes to creating the perfect children’s bedroom, less is usually more. By keeping the décor simple and furnishings to just the essentials, you’ll create more space for free play, which is a must for children of all ages.

Play With Colours

Children love colour and redecorating your child’s room is a great way to introduce fun colour to your home, but it’s crucial to choose the right one. Involve your child in the process of choosing the colours and shades for their bedroom, but avoid going all-in on a single colour. Kids can change their minds at warp speed, and you don’t want to end up with a room that’s entirely red if next month, their favourite colour will be blue!

Instead, opt for two or three complementary colours or shades, and introduce them as pops of colour that can easily be updated as their tastes change, for example, by having one feature wall and then choosing soft furnishings such as curtains, bedding and rugs to match.

Frame Artwork

Art prints are a great way to brighten a neutral bedroom, but they can be pricey. Why not use your kid's artwork to brighten up their room instead? Cheap, colourful frames and a few favourite paintings or collages can bring a fun, unique feel to your child’s room.

You can also use picture pockets to hang photographs of all your child’s favourite memories, and these can easily be swapped and changed to include new pictures as you make new memories together.

Make it Functional

As your children grow, their room will need to adapt and change as they do. This means you’ll need to think ahead to avoid constantly needing to update and refresh the furniture and décor.

Opt for multi-function furniture, for example, high-sleepers with a built-in desk that they can use for homework as they get older or repurpose items they no longer need. For example, an old cot can become a child’s desk or a changing unit can be converted into shelving.

Consider whether your child’s room will have enough storage for books, toys and clothes, bearing in mind that their clothes will grow as they do!
