Your child’s bedroom is a place that they will spend their time in to sleep, play, do their homework and have friends around. This is why it is important that it is a comfortable yet functional space that ticks all the boxes. You want it to look great, be somewhere that they can relax in and also be as organised as possible. If you are looking for some ideas for decorating your child’s bedroom, we have put some together below that should help you on your way.
Ask for your child’s opinion
At the end of the day, the room is for your little one, so it is a good idea to ask their opinion on some of the decorations. You could even get them involved, depending on their age. They will love donning some old clothes and helping to put paint on the walls or finding a place for all of their belongings to go. You could sit together and go through sites such as Pinterest which will give you some great inspiration. From wall decals to LED lighting, there are many great ideas you can add to the room.
Consider a loft bed for smaller spaces
It is important to focus on space when sorting out your child’s room as you want them to have enough to both work, play and sleep. A loft bed can be a great way to maximise space. This way you can have their bed higher up, with a desk or their toys underneath. They will also find it great fun sleeping higher up! Some loft beds can come with slides and other fun features that they will really enjoy.
Think about timeless design
Children often go through phases of liking a certain cartoon or theme, but this can be outgrown quickly. Avoid having to redecorate all the time by opting for a neutral design on the wall and focusing on accessories. This way it encompasses the best of both worlds without you having to continually splash out on new paint and wallpaper.
Have plenty of storage
We have all been there, battling with our children about the mess in their rooms. While this is pretty unavoidable, you can make it easier to clean by having plenty of storage. Try to invest in a number of shelves and storage boxes that you can label and your child will easily be able to navigate and sort out their toys at the end of the day. If they sort out the room with you, you can both work out the most logical spaces for items to go.
These are just a few ideas that should help when it comes to decorating and sorting out your child’s bedroom. This will be the space that they remember for years to come and you want them to both enjoy it now and look back on it with fond memories.
