Top Tips For Decorating Your Child’s Bedroom
Decorating your child’s room can easily bring out the inner child in yourself. It is a wonderful opportunity to use your imagination and create the dream bedroom you have always wanted as a child but now for your own kids. The process of actually decorating the room can sound quite daunting, but it really doesn’t have to be. For more decoration ideas you can visit our showroom or browse our website.
Children have wonderful imaginations, are creative and have their own unique personalities. All of these can be used when decorating their bedroom. Get them involved, it is a great opportunity to spend some time with your little one and ultimately you will learn more about them. Remember though that your child is going to grow up not just physically but mentally too and their likes and dislikes will change rapidly as the years go by. Be open to suggestions but make sure you create a room not just for now but for the future too. We have gathered some great tips and tricks to make sure you create a room you and your child can be proud of.
Look to the future
Your children are growing up every second and what they might like today may not be what they like tomorrow. They are changing their interests on a daily basis. It is really important to remember this when designing your child’s room. Look towards the future and think, ‘will they still like this room in a few years to come?’ If the answer is yes you will be saving a lot of money and will get to enjoy your hard work for that little bit longer.
Most of the time with walls it is best to keep them pretty neutral. This then means that the wall can act as a blank canvas for any art, furnishings or decorative pieces to go into the room.
If you love the idea of getting creative with colour, then having a feature wall could be a good idea for you. If your child has a particular interest that you feel could last, your feature wall theme could work around this adding a personalised touch to your child’s bedroom. You can also find inexpensive wall decals that can be stuck on however you like and then removed with no hassle for a style that suits your child’s personality.
The ceiling could sound like the tedious part of the job but it really doesn’t have to be! Get creative. Bring the night sky into your child’s room by using lights to glow onto the ceiling which act like stars. These lights could also act as a nightlight if your little one is scared of the dark.
You can even make the ceiling a feature piece in the room. Hanging fairy lights or paper pompoms and lanterns are also a fabulous feature that you could add to your ceiling to give it some style.
Art is such a gorgeous way to bring life and fun into a bedroom. Get your child involved in picking the art for their room. Stick to a colour scheme or use your own child’s artwork! If your child loves drawing and painting, allow them to frame and put up their best work. It will give them a sense of achievement and gives them an opportunity to show off their work to family and friends.
Photos and gallery walls
Photographs are always such a wonderful way to decorate a room. You can buy all kinds of frames nowadays to fit as many photos as you want. These frames come in all different shapes and sizes to fit the design of any room. It adds a little personal touch too which is always lovely to add to a room. If you have photos of family members that your child doesn’t get to see as often as you’d like, hang them up as a reminder and to help them to feel closer to long distance family.
As you are probably fully aware, children have a lot of toys, clothes, book and everything else! So, in a child’s room, storage is a must. There are lots of different places to get storage cupboards, wardrobes and boxes. Keeping them neutral allows other pieces of feature furniture to stand out. However, you could add a touch of creative fun if you would like to by adding toys, stickers or pictures to the storage space like the fun lights and block letters shown above.
Soft, comfy furniture
Carpets, bedding, pillows and other soft furniture items give you as the designer the opportunity to introduce different patterns and textures to your child’s bedroom. There is always an opportunity to add that little extra something to the room to make it stand out. Remember, if the walls are a neutral colour, the opportunities are endless in regards to the furniture patterns and textures. Plus, it’ll be a lot comfier for you to settle down to all those bedtime stories!
Bunting, wall fixtures and chalkboard walls are creative items that allow your children’s room to have a bit more personality and can let them put their own stamp on things. These items can also be moved and changed with how your child’s interests change too.
Incorporate their favourite friends
Is your child a Disney fan? Do they love playing princesses and superheroes? As adults, many of us have grown up with these characters and they continue to delight our own children. At Select Blinds, we offer a range of beautifully made children’s blinds with designs featuring beloved characters such as Winnie the Pooh, Dumbo as well as the cast of Marvel’s The Avengers and Star Wars. With Select Blinds, you can take advantage of our free measurement and fitting service. Check out our full range on our children’s blinds page, or visit our showroom to see some examples.
Fun-tastic play areas
If you don’t have space for a playroom or you don’t want toys cluttering up the rest of the house, why not consider making your child a play area within their room. Create your child a small tent or a cute ball pit for areas of play. These spaces should be designed for them to play on their own or with friends and make a mess if they wish, which we know they probably will!
