It can be difficult to know how to decorate your child’s room. That’s why we’ve created the ultimate list of tips for decorating kids rooms.
1. Lean Into What They Love
If they like dinosaurs or ballerinas, go for it and use it as inspiration for their decor!
Whatever your child loves is going to inspire them to want to play and explore more in their own room. If you’re limited for play space then their bedroom is going to be a place where they can blossom and have fun.
Look deeper into what they enjoy the most and work out a way to incorporate this into the decor. Do they like dinosaurs? Then why not look at dinosaur wallpaper so they can learn more about the types of dinosaurs and how they behaved.
If they enjoy princess and pink ballerina themes, then having a specially designed bed like a princess would have will encourage them to go to bed on time!
2. Redesign the Layout
Put unused furniture or belongings in self storage.
Oftentimes, kids have plenty of toys. Therefore things can become a little cluttered and usually they gravitate towards the same five toys every day. If you know that they will come back to some toys in the future, then consider putting some in storage. You can even use them for their younger siblings. It’s a great solution, and you can look at storage websites for further inspiration.
3. Ask for Their Input
Kids may have wild ideas but sometimes they may come up with something that you have not thought of. Perhaps they came up with the idea of a nightlight to help them, or a specific type of play mat they want. If you listen to what they want, then you will save yourself a lot of time and effort and it also helps build your relationships with your children.
4. Make Tidying Easy
A toy box is a good way to keep things neat. When things are neat and organized, the child always knows where things are and therefore you will find that they are likely to put them back in the same place too.
It keeps things much neater and if things are very easily accessible, there is no excuse for them not to put their toys away at the end of each day. Kids are messy, but they can also be encouraged to be tidy too!
5. Buy New Furniture and Bedding
Children need to have stable and suitable beds. It’s something that isn’t often talked about but children’s mattresses are important. Make it fun and have a themed bed, such as a car. Decorate the room with a new duvet cover, perhaps their favorite action figure or film.
The options are endless for creating a great space for kids. Think neat and functional, but playful too and the world is your oyster for creating something incredible. Think about what your kids really need and their likes and dislikes, and you’ll have a great new room for them in no time!
