Decorating a kids room can be quite a challenge, but it is always fun. No matter what furniture and accessories you choose, the real enjoyment comes down to the small things – the walls, desk, lighting, etc. Selecting the perfect theme is also fun, and your children will love giving their input.
Depending on the age of the child, there are endless themes you can choose from. Disney characters, butterflies, jungle themes and underwater characters like the Little Mermaid are just a few options. You may also decide you want bedding that matches the theme, or you may want to use a solid color on the bed if it all seems a little too much.
Kids room decorating usually involves the use of a large variety of colors. These days, you can purchase paints with various textures that can be used on one wall to create various illusions. Magnetic paint is something to give some thought to if your child collects magnets. They can hang all of their favorites directly on the wall!
Painting a mural on one wall is an idea that really adds a unique look to the room. The mural you paint or have someone to paint will go right along with the theme you choose. Can you imagine your child’s favorite theme characters painted right on the wall? There are options if you cannot do this yourself. Art deco wall stickers can create the illusion if you don’t feel that you are talented enough to take on the challenge.
Kids room decorating can be much more intensive than you may think. For example, if your child has a desk or activity table in their bedroom, you can paint a checkerboard on top! And when it comes to lighting, you need more than a single lamp to create a magical atmosphere. Place several small lamps around various areas of the room, so that it glows and reflects the imaginative themes you and your child have chosen.
Childhood is a special and magical time in anyone’s life. Make your child’s bedroom a memorable and cherished sanctuary that will remain in their mind for the rest of their life. Kids room decorating is a challenge, but it is also fun and very rewarding when you see the results and the eyes of your child light up in wonderment!
