Decorating your child’s bedroom can certainly be a challenge. Either they love it and you don’t—or you love it and they don’t—or it’s something they’ll outgrow in a few years.
Having trouble putting together a space for your child? Here are a few tips for choosing kids’ bedroom décor that is fun, functional and flexible.
Anchor the Room with Practical Pieces
The key is to start with a few practical pieces like a bed, dresser and nightstand. This is the furniture your child will use every day for years to come so try to choose pieces that are sturdy and adaptable.
Decorate Around the Pieces
Once you’ve chosen the central pieces of your son or daughter’s room, decorate around the furniture by adding fun, inexpensive accessories that cater to your child’s personal tastes. Ideas include:
- Storage Cubes and Baskets. Available in a variety of colors and styles, storage cubes and baskets look great and can hold just about anything your kid acquires—be it books, stuffed animals, toys or collectibles.
- Wall Decals. Fun and easily removable, wall decals are a simple way to add a splash of color and personality to your little one’s space.
- Funky Lamps. Funky lamps can give your child’s room an extra bit of flair. Choose colorful styles and crazy patterns for a look your child will love.
- Area Rugs. From geometric to floral, fuzzy to funky, area rugs are a simple way to add warmth and flair to a floor, all while accenting your child’s bedroom décor.
Choosing kids’ bedroom decor doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. Simply find a few practical pieces and add fun accessories to tie your child’s room together.
Get your kids involved! Since my son was 4, he is now 14, he chose his own paint colors and design/theme. It was a wonderful way to get to know your child and see their creativity. I would encourage him by telling him that his room was “His Space” and should be a place to call his own. Believe me it takes a brave Mom to let their child loose in a paint store along with a guiding eye to keep colors in the same family or at best compatible. At the end of the day, your child will most likely come up with a design that you would have never dreamed. Allowing them to plan the storage is also helpful because they will most likely be more interested in keeping their space tidy! Good luck and make it fun!!
