Your child’s room is their personal space where they can get creative and have some fun, as well as learn new things.
However, this area can easily turn into a pile of toys and clothes if you don’t come up with a good system of organization.
If you are not sure how to decorate your little one’s room, here are some ideas you could consider.
Paint a chalkboard wall
Kids love to draw, but usually they don’t use a piece of paper, but your brand new couch or your freshly painted walls.
In order to give your children a place where they can get creative and ‘redecorate’ whenever they want, buy chalkboard paint and turn an entire wall in their room into a huge chalkboard.
This way they can draw on it every time they feel inspired, and leave the other walls in your home alone.
Create a reading nook
Do your little ones enjoy reading? If so, don’t forget to create a cute reading nook in their room.
All you need is a bookshelf with all their favorite books, a bunch of pillows and good lighting.
Get creative with storage ideas
You will need a lot of storage bins in your kids’ room for all those toys from FuntasticToy, crayons, notebooks and other things they simply cannot live without.
However, instead of opting for boring, store-bought bins, get creative and with some paint turn old school lockers, metal cans or wooden crates into cute and interesting containers.
This way your kids will be able to easily clean up after them when they are done playing, and their room won’t look like it has survived a hurricane.
Keep their height in mind
Maybe you can reach all the cabinets and coat racks, but your little ones are still not tall enough.
Therefore, when decorating their room, keep their height in mind and organize things accordingly.
When they can reach shelves, coat racks, and benches without using a stool, they will use them more often.
Paint the ceiling
Most kids are afraid of the dark and they do not feel comfortable when the lights go out.
However, if you put some additive into the paint that makes it glow in the dark you can draw stars and the moon on their ceiling and get them excited about turning out the lights.
Let your kids help
If you wish to repaint an old piece of furniture your kids will eventually grow out of, let them help you.
They can design it any way they want, use their fingers to create a polka dot design or leave their handprints on it.
After all, they won’t use it for years to come, so let them get creative.
Create a display space
Kids love to collect things and they like to draw, so you will end up with a bunch of stuff they don’t want to throw away and you have no idea what to do with.
You can easily solve this problem by mounting a sheet of galvanized metal on the wall (you can buy it at most home improvement stores).
This way you will have a large, instant magnetic board where your little ones can display their art and treasured possessions.
Include a lot of lighting
Of course, you will have the main light on the ceiling, but a couple of reading lights here and there can create a cozy atmosphere and even help your little ones find the bathroom in the middle of the night.
When decorating your kids’ room, don’t forget to ask them what they want, as well.
fter all, they are the ones who will be spending a lot of time in it, so make their voice count.
