Easy Tips for Decorating your Child's Bedroom


One day, you'll wake up and realise that your baby just isn't a baby anymore. They've grown into a toddler or a young child, and they've got new needs, new opinions, and a brand-new attitude. Your little one is growing up. The perfect way to celebrate? With a mini makeover of course!

Decorating your child's bedroom might not seem like a difficult chore at first. Yet, when you start to work on all the complicated details, you may find that you're not nearly as prepared as you should be.

Here are some quick and easy tips to help you make the most of decorating your child's bedroom.

Have fun with accessories 
Want to make the most of your decorating experience without over-spending? Try accessories! They're a great way to let your youngster add their own personality to a room without investing in anything too excessive. Cute little touches such as wall art stickers can add a lot of character and personalise the room for your little ones. Often it’s the smaller parts of a redesign that become the most beloved. Cheap accessories also mean that you don't waste money on something that your youngster will grow out of within a few months.

Let them have their way (most of the time)
While you still have to be the adult and decorate with safety and practicality in mind, make sure that your fantasy of what your child's room should look like doesn't get in the way of their dreams. Make sure that you respect their preferences. After all, it's your child that's going to call that room their own - you need to be sure they love it.

Use cash carefully
It's tempting to get carried away when you're designing the perfect bedroom for your little one. After all, you want them to have everything they could possibly want, from new wallpaper to a brand-new bed and even a set of funky wardrobes too. However, try not to over-spend. Establish a budget before you go shopping, and only spend large amounts of money on big items that are going to last for years.

Remember your window fittings 
You'd be surprised how much of a difference that the right window fittings can make to a bedroom. After all, they not only add to the d├ęcor, they also help to brighten up a space by making sure that the right amount of light can get in through the day. Tier on tier shutters also mean that you can open the top part of the shutters to let your kids look out at the stars if they want to.

Remember storage 
Finally, if you're investing in furniture, remember that you're going to need item that provide lots of storage. A bed with built-in drawers is a great way to save space in a smaller room, and if you've got the money, it's worth considering built-in closets and toy storage cupboards. Remember, it’s not just about being able to put things away, but it’s about ease of access too! There may be times when you need instant access to an item of clothing buried at the back of the wardrobe, and precious seconds can mean everything when you’re in a rush. For ease of access, a wardrobe with sliding doors can make life easier. And with adequate storage comes less anxiety about tidying! The more room you have to keep everything tidied away neatly, the less stressful cleaning the house will be.

Good luck! 

Decorating a child's room isn't always as simple as it seems, but if you keep the five tips above in mind, you should at least keep the hurdles you encounter to a minimum. Make sure that you let your kid have their say, and keep practical points in mind too, and you'll have the perfect room in no time.
