When it comes to choosing the décor for a children’s room it can be tricky. Kids grow so quickly and change their minds and tastes so frequently that doing an expensive refurb that they don’t like anymore in 6 months’ time can seem silly. Here are the top tips to redecorating the children’s rooms to help you get it right as they grow:
When it comes to furniture the main piece to worry about is getting in the bed in first as this often takes up the most space. With the speed that children grow at, getting them a new bed that’s a little too big for them is always favourable to one that fits just right as they’ll be able to grow into it. Go for something that has plenty of storage built in too as in children’s rooms there’s never too many places to store all the clutter. It’s important to keep a child’s room organised so investing in as many space saving items of furniture as possible is recommended. Shelving is a great way to keep all your child’s important ornaments and trinkets on display but out of reach.
Pale colours //
Always go for pale colours when decorating the walls as they’re the kind of shades that kids will grow into. Even if your little one is having a phase which involves them being obsessed with canary yellow, its sure to be something they’ll grow out of. Whatever the colour, a pale shade can be easily adapted as they grow up and, when paired with new accessories and furniture, look completely different. If they are obsessed with a particular movie or character and want those to feature in their room, always get transfer tickers that you can peel off of the walls without leaving a mark behind instead of painting on anything permanent.
Accessorise it up //
The trimmings are where you can really put your child’s personal tastes into play. Don’t buy anything too expensive as many discount stores do great children’s homeware which doesn’t cost a fortune to replace as their tastes change. A duvet cover, matching lamp and rug in their favourite theme will definitely go down well and don’t shun getting creative. Paint a few picture frames or make some cute cushion covers to match their colour scheme.
Decorating a child’s room can be so much fun and gives you an amazing opportunity to be creative but it’s always good to really think about the future and how the room can be adapted as they grow into teenagers.
