Decorating your children’s bedroom should be fun for both you and your children. However, coming up with the ideas can sometimes be difficult. That is why we have decided to create this list of seven stylish ways to decorate your children’s bedroom. Enjoy.
First, show some love to the windows. In most situations, parents put white curtains over them so they can move to other more interesting decorating bits. Well, that is just wrong. No kid wants a white curtain in their bedroom. Consider getting one that has some pizzazz to it. It can be anything from a multi-colored curtain to the ones that have motifs from their favorite cartoon on them.
Another brilliant way to decorate your kid’s bedroom is to paint it. Now, we don’t mean to paint the walls. Well, you can do that as well, but we think that it’s a better idea to put a couple of paintings on the wall. And not just random paintings from your local store, but the ones that you’ve painted together. Your children will be proud of their artwork, and their bedroom will look awesome.
We know that professional canvases are expensive, but you don’t have to buy them. There are companies that offer canvas stretching services at a very low price. Just buy a roll of canvas, and make sure you stretch a few extra frames. You know how children are; they will certainly destroy a canvas or two.
Wallpapers are a great non-permanent way to decorate your children’s bedroom. Children grow up, and what interests them today might become completely irrelevant to them tomorrow. That’s why wallpapers are great. You can put them up one day, and take them down after your kids lose interest in them without having to repaint the entire wall.
Most parents don’t bother with creating an interesting lighting setup. A regular ceiling light and maybe a lava lamp are standard in most kids’ bedrooms. A wasted potential if you ask us. Lighting setups can be so much fun to play with. For example, you can install a world globe chandelier or a headlight table lamp depending on your kid’s interests.
If you have more than one kid, buying a bunk bed should be your primary concern. Not only will it save you space, but your children will love it as well. Now, don’t buy one of those military-style bunk beds. Instead, get a little bit creative. Maybe have them custom made, so they fit your kids’ interests. A double-decker-themed bunk bed is a popular choice for boys, and a castle-themed one for girls.
Kids are little artists and they love to scribble. It’s great when they do it on the paper, but more often than not, walls become their canvas. If you want to avoid repainting your walls every few months, consider installing a chalkboard wall. Turn one wall into a chalkboard and let them scribble as much as they want. Just wipe it clean from time to time, and you won’t have to worry about repainting the walls anytime soon.
Lastly, include your children in the decorating process. We previously mentioned that you should paint with your children, but learning what their interests and hobbies are might be more important. Once you know what your kids like, it will be easy to decorate their bedroom.
And that’s about it. I hope you found at least some of these ideas interesting. Just remember that decorating your children’s bedroom should be fun for both parties. If your children are not interested in helping you, then you are doing something wrong.
