Children grow very quickly, too quickly in fact! Their tastes change so often it's hard to keep up with what their favourite programme/character's are which often leaves you wanting to change their room to suit their likes as they get older. Their bedroom may be in dire need of a makeover but you don't want to spend a fortune on re-doing it. Instead, here are many ways that you can re-decorate a child's bedroom without breaking the bank:
A touch of fresh paint goes a long way and could be just what you need to spruce up your child's bedroom and make it look brand new again. We all know children especially toddlers like to draw on walls and get smear their grubby hands all over them too. Over time a bedroom can become dull and a touch of paint in the same or a different colour can completely transform a room.
Use Wall Decals
Stencils and removable wall decals are fun ways to add a splash of colour and a touch of whimsy to a room. You can find many character, theme, quote decals online at places such as eBay and Amazon. Not only can you use these on walls, but you could use them on the ceiling, doors, bookcases, furniture the options are endless.
Instead of buying new furniture all it may need it another coat of paint and some drawer knobs. They will add a touch of brightness to your children's furniture along with being functional and safe. The Handle Store have a lovely selection of kids drawer knobs including various options for boys, girls and neutral too.
Turn one of the bedroom walls into a chalkboard wall by using chalkboard paint. This is a great way for children to be creative but it can help them learn to keep track of to do lists and write notes. There's so many uses for chalkboards, you could have a drawing wall at the weekend and then during the week write what to bring to school.
Add shelves and bookcases
Adding shelves or bookcases to a bedroom can help with storage space as well as change the room up a bit. Have shelves to display keepsakes and favourite items out of reach of toddlers and young children, this can completely change the look of a wall. Also bookcases are not only a great way to display books to encourage children to read but you can also use them to store toys and have the kids help tidying them up each day. Picture ledge shelving on walls to display books is a favourite of mine, and keeps it looking tidy yet simple.
