5 Ideas For An Easy Kids’ Room Makeover
Your children are growing and evolving, and the decoration they used to love in their bedrooms is now too babyish or childish for them.
They want something they like!
While seeing your children grow up might be a bittersweet feeling as a parent, as your kids grow, they’ll start developing their own personalities and taste. And so they’ll want their bedroom to feel personal and, let’s be honest, awesome ;)
So, why not take this opportunity to make your kid’s bedroom makeover a project you can work on together? This will allow you to create unforgettable memories together while allowing them to express themselves.
And to help you in this task, we’ve listed below five easy kids’ bedroom makeover ideas to turn their space into an epic room they’ll love spending time in.
Select a Theme
Your child’s bedroom should reflect their interests and hobbies. Sure, these can change quite often with children but giving the room a theme based on their hobbies or favourite movie character will instantly turn their bedroom into a fun space where they’ll want to engage and grow. So, make sure to ask them what the theme should be and involve them in the process.
Once you’ve decided on the theme (think superhero, mermaid cave, dino den, or even circus tent), you’ll be able to define the colours and accessories for the room.
Here are some more kids’ bedroom theme ideas if you need inspiration:
- Safari or jungle vibes
- Hello Kitty
- Marvel Universe
- Under the sea
Paint The Walls
Painting the walls of your child’s bedroom is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to give the room a total makeover and a new feel. Based on their chosen theme, start painting the walls, ceilings, and even the doors!
The great thing about a kids’ bedroom is that you can be super creative and bold! While pastel ceilings and rainbow doors might not feel relaxing for friends or family staying over in the guest room, they’re the perfect colors for a kids’ bedroom!
And if they ever grow tired of the colours you’ve used, you can always paint again and start the next bedroom makeover together ;)
Accessorise The Bedroom
This is probably the most crucial step.
Now that you have the theme, and painted the walls, time to accessories your child’s room to give it the epic look you’re after.
Banners, mirrors, decals, hanging fairy lights, garlands, stuffed animals, shelving, rugs, cartoon plushies, or lettering cushions; accessories are great ways to inject personality into your child’s room and bring it to life. Of course, you should make sure to tie up the accessories you choose to the theme of the toom for a cohesive feel.
Also, an easy way to accessorise your child’s room on a budget is by purchasing themed bedding! For instance, if your little boy loves ironman, buy a themed ironman bedding set. Or if your little girl loves fairies, then a pink glittery bed set will turn the room into a magical space in no time.
Create a Play Area
What do children love the most after candy and ice cream? Playing!
That’s right, children love to play, so what better way to create an epic kids’ bedroom than by incorporating playful elements and games into the decoration?
For instance, you could create an indoor swing or install a ball pit in a dedicated corner. This will add fun to their room without compromising on style. Other ideas include adding a chalkboard, creating a cozy reading corner, adding a cool teepee, or placing a basketball hoop behind the door.
A fun play area is such a cool idea that the adults in the house might even start spending time in there while the kids are away ;)
And to make the space even more personal, why not hang some of their artwork?
Update The Furniture
You’re most likely going to have to update your kids’ room several times before they spread their wings. And buying new furniture every time can be costly. So, why not revamp their existing furniture?
For instance, you could turn a plain chest of drawers into a playful one by painting and personalising each drawer. The sky's the limit when it comes to updating furniture the playful way so let your creativity run wild and have fun in the process ;)
