Updating The Kids Bedroom

Redesigning Your Childs Bedroom

If you are thinking of redesigning your child’s bedroom a good start is to bring out the kids qualities. These would be imagination, expression, curiosity and fantasy. All these qualities can be harnessed and applied to the theme of the bedroom. Obviously, a child’s tastes change and evolve over time so think ahead but not too far.

A kids bedroom needs to be functional and multi-purpose – a playroom and a sanctuary. Whatever the child’s age the idea is to create an environment where they feel safe and comfortable. The following provided some ideas that will help your child to develop as they grow.

Kids Bedroom Redesign Tips

Wall Colours
Choose a neutral wall colour that will serve as a blank canvas for decorative objects and the continually changing tastes of the room’s inhabitant for a long-lasting scheme. If you want to use colour and pattern, keep it to one wall or the ceiling; if you can’t resist a piece of wallpaper, make sure the motif isn’t too strong so it doesn’t take over the entire room.

Storage Space
Good storage is essential in any well-organized bedroom, but it is especially important in a child’s room. Where once the only option for storage containers was the nearby Argos, we now have a veritable Aladdin’s cave of pompoms, raffia, and woven seagrass thanks to online access to a veritable Aladdin’s cave of pompoms, raffia, and woven seagrass. Whatever type of storage you choose, it should be the ideal blend of design, function, and, most importantly, a dash of whimsy.

Featured Furnishings
Designing on a tight budget necessitates patience and a keen eye for a good deal. It takes effort to find the appropriate highlight piece, whether it’s an antique wardrobe, a storage chest, or a unique bed frame. If you don’t have time to create anything new, consider updating an existing object by painting it in vibrant, jewel-like colours.

Bedroom Atrwork
Artwork is a terrific way to add visual interest to a bedroom, and it can also be a helpful tool for dictating a colour scheme: flashes of colour can be replicated in bed linen and soft furnishings, bringing the area together in a subtle and harmonious way. Graphic or modernist prints can give older children’s rooms a more sophisticated feel.

Decor Accessories
Bunting, vinyl stickers, and wall hangings can be used to liven up a plain backdrop and can be quickly removed when your child’s interests change. Consider placing a chalkboard strip or daubing chalkboard paint across a portion of a wall if you want to stimulate creativity and the desire to enjoy homework from toddlerhood through adolescence.

Varying Light Shades
When it comes to decorating a child’s bedroom, lighting is crucial: fairy lights provide a cosy atmosphere, spots produce warmth, task lighting above or alongside beds encourages reading, and lampshades on ceiling lights lend focus to a space. For those of us who are still terrified of the dark, falling asleep under fairy lights or under the soothing glow of a loving animal lamp provides much-needed confidence and comfort.

Relaxation Zone
Kids’ bedrooms aren’t simply for sleeping in; they can also be used for quiet reflection (after a spanking), study, and play. As a result, it’s a good idea to separate various areas: add bean bags or hanging seats to make reading more enjoyable, a desk to stimulate study and crafts, or a little tepee to provide some snug playtime.

Furnishing Textures
Rugs, curtains, cushions, and bed linen are all inexpensive ways to add pattern, colour, and texture to your child’s bedroom. When a trip to the Land of Nod beckons, a canopy draped around the head of the bed provides plenty of slumberous security. An oh-so-soft sheepskin rug gives warmth and texture for under small feet, while bed linen in contrasting colours and patterns adds a playful accent.

The Ceiling
Ceilings are one of the most underappreciated aspects of bedroom real estate. A ceiling, which is often left barren but for a couple of light fixtures, provides an opportunity to make a dramatic statement when flaws aren’t as noticeable as they are on the floor or walls. Hang a serenely floating mobile whose gentle motion will gently lull your tiny ones to sleep to channel your inner child.
