It’s time to have some fun and to ignite your creativity when you are designing your child’s bedroom. After all, they’re young for just a short span of time, so why not let them experience a magical childhood in their bedrooms? Spark their interest, make them want to sleep in their own room, let them have fun, and allow them to be children. Even if you’re on a budget, you’ll be able to do it. Here are some great ideas for creative designs for your children’s bedrooms suitable for any budget.
Creative Use of Paint
One of the easiest and least expensive ways to make a unique room for children is via the use of paint. Look for a color scheme that your child loves. Paint the walls in stripes, polka dots, zigzag – your options are limitless. Paint all walls vibrantly, or choose a focal point. You may opt to paint the whole room white for example, and paint one wall differently (like red or blue) as a contrast or theme. This way, you can easily change the theme of your child’s room since you’ll only have to paint one wall to change the color scheme.
Build-ins will not only help solve the storage space dilemma most parents have, but will also add character to your child’s room. From closets, cabinets, desks, shelves, and different types of covered storage – build-ins not only look good, but also have functionality and purpose.
Inexpensive yet attractive, wall stickers are easy to use. You’re sure to be able to transform your child’s room from boring to magical in an instant with wall stickers. Oh, and they can be changed as easily and as often as your child changes his mind!
Each child is different. Use your child’s interest to guide you in decorating his or her room. For example, if your child has a ton of toy cars display these on unique shelves; use your child’s trophies the room’s focal point; use skateboards as shelves; or cover the walls in his or her art masterpieces. Being able to work with your child’s interest and incorporating your child’s personality in the room will make the room more meaningful to your child.
A great way to put a theme to your child’s room, wall murals can range from different landscapes to your child’s favorite cartoon characters. Your theme can be as whimsical and as imaginative as you and your child would want it to be.
In designing your child’s bedroom, always take into consideration his or her preferences and ideas – after all, it is his or her room. Give your child choices and options to aid the decision-making process; guide, ask, listen. Decorating a child’s bedroom can be a lot more enjoyable then you’d expect!
