Kids room decorating is an opportunity waiting to come to life! Nowhere else can you mix and match a variety of paint schemes along with creative stencils, stickers, sparkles and get away with it. Best of all, your kids can be involved in transforming their room into their own accomplishments while redecorating at the same time.
Some creative ideas on decorating kids bedrooms:
Furniture – Make a whole play area from an ordinary bookcase. Choose bright colors that match your child’s style and add features such as cutout doors for a dollhouse or castle effect. Add texture materials to one or two compartments that create a window or door-like feature. When your child has out-grown the design, you can easily remove the materials and doors and replace them with the original materials that you saved. Other ideas can be used with Lego or large building blocks to create more designs to match your child’s age.
Walls – Turn your kid’s walls into a big canvas. Paint is the perfect solution and the least expensive way to create a kaleidoscope impact while offering unlimited color options. Just changing one wall or adding stripes, borders, sponge, or stamping techniques can bring new life to an ordinary room. Use wavy or splat design patterns, or turn one wall into a mural effect. Choose a bright base and pick accent colors to achieve the best effects.
Ceiling – Create a magical night sky on your child’s ceiling with glow-in-the-dark decorations. These can be fun and even comforting for your child to be able to lie in bed and gaze up at the night stars
Doors – Use wooden letters that spell your child’s name and glue them on the door. Painting them in the theme color of your child’s room will dress up the door nicely. Closet door hardware can be replaced with wiggly handles or their favorite cartoon character. By matching the door hardware with wall plates you can carry the pattern throughout the room that accents their style.
Shelves – Using shelving materials can be the least expensive way to pick up the clutter and organize a room. Painting with the same colors or add design features with stencil or stamping can quickly dress up any room. Different shelve designs can also be used to border a window that eliminate the need for expensive window treatments.
Accessories – Large cork boards can quickly turn a bare wall into a busy space. Corkboards also eliminate holes in walls from nails or tacks that later need to be repaired. Wooden picture frames can be painted to help accent the room. Fans blades can be reversed and painted with designs to add cool effects when in use and then can be reversed when it comes time to re-decorate.
Decorating your kid’s bedroom is a great way to give them a place they can call their own, and you may just find your kid spending more time in there!
