Do you remember what your room looked like when you were a kid? I am guessing not creative or undeniably cool. In fact, it was a functional bedroom with all the basic necessities. Correct me if I am wrong.
Nevertheless, in this post, we will discuss the top 5 creative ways to help you give a makeover to your kid’s room. Not similar to the makeover you give to your master bedroom, kitchen or the living room, but these tricks will help you give a makeover to the younger sets in your house.
Use Wall Decals
Wall-friendly decals are a perfect way to decorate your kid’s walls. You can choose peel-and-stick decals and paste it on the wall behind or on the sidewall of your kid’s bed. But make sure the color of the wall and the decal is in contrast with each other. In my own experience, decals work best when they are depicting a scene or telling a story.
For instance, a space scene or something to do with your child’s favorite cartoon characters. You see most of the decal ideas will generate from the likings of your child. So, be careful while you choose decals. You can also use decals as part of a fun-filled motif or to simply brighten up the plain white walls.
Whatever theme you choose ultimately your child will grow up and get bored with the old theme. In that case, all you have to do is peel-off the decals from the wall and find wall decals that suits your child’s imagination.
Design The Area Constructively
Children are always under the process of growth and change. Your child will outgrow the room at some point of time in life. This is why you have to be constructive about the room design. In other words, when your child is old enough to do homework and go to school, you will need a focused area specially designed for doing homework. And the good news is, you don’t have to do anything elaborate. A simple chair with a desk should do the job.
Also, don’t forget to design another area meant for daydreaming and relaxing. Here, you can keep a beanbag or a comfortable loveseat tucked in with stuffed toys. After all, your kids will need a relaxing space as soon as they come back home from school.
Create Open Shelves
Kids and mess go hand in hand, especially when you have young kids at home. In fact, young kids can never be organized unless your kid is Sheldon Cooper. However, if you fail at organizing your kid’s room, here’s what you can do.
Provide your kids with open shelves and baskets to keep their toys. This will help your kids access anything they want easily and each toy will go back to its original place soon after playtime is over. Also, remember that you might have to work with your kids on this one until they learn to keep the things back in the basket or bins.
Increase The Space
You can make room for two kids by following the trick we have for you. Basically, it is difficult to accommodate every item in a small room. As a result of which floorspace diminishes. To stop that from happening you can push the bed and other furniture, right against the wall. This trick will help you create floor space and your kid will have ample space to move around the floor.
Add a Divider Between the Beds
It is quite possible that you have two kids and they do not always share the same point of view. In that case, you can add a divider between the beds. All you have to do is cut some space between the kids and ensure the night doesn’t turn into a bitter battle or endless quarrel. So, use a curtain between the beds or simply a dresser or a bookcase shelving to maintain maximum space between two beds.
Childhood is fleeting. Before you even know it your child will grow and leave your house to study abroad. So, make the most of their childhood and do not sweat about little things. A child’s bedroom will be a reflection of what they think, imagine, and portray as a whole. This is why you need to have fun while decorating the room of your child and ensure your kids have a say on the wall color, theme of the room, which bedside they want and sometimes even furnishing.
