Decorating A Kids Room From The Heart
Decorating a kid’s room is an adventure that every parent needs to experience. It is a learning experience from top to bottom for both the adults and the children. It is fun, invigorating and will make you feel years younger once you get started.
You’ll discover more about yourself and your child once the project begins. You’ll have to look into the very core of your child to find out what really makes him tick. You are probably going to end up using a theme for your bedroom decorating and this will be based on your child’s character.
Does your child love sports?
You can create a theme in any sport that your child loves to play. You’ll be able to find comforters, sheets sets, area rugs, curtains and basically any accessories you need that are sports related. Sports is only an example of one of the hundreds of themes available for decorating a kid’s room.
Younger children might want a cartoon theme
Cartoon themes are as popular now as they have ever been. The themes available change from year to year as new cartoons are produced, but many of the classic cartoon characters such as Winnie the Pooh and Bugs Bunny will always remain a popular choice.
If you have gone ahead and picked out the bedding for a cartoon theme you’ll easily be able to match it up with accessories to match. You’ll also be able to find wallpaper borders that can add a nice touch to the overall effect you’re trying to create in the room.
Splash a mural on the wall
Amaze your children by hiring a professional artist to paint a mural right on the wall. These painters aren’t usually as expensive as you may think and some of them are college students trying to make extra money on the side. Take a look through the classified ads section in your local newspaper or look online for someone that does quality creative wall painting at an affordable price.
Need new beds?
If your children’s beds have had their day take a look at the selection of kids bunk beds. It is simply incredible to see all the different styles being offered. You’ll definitely be able to find the right set of kids bunk beds that fit perfectly into the room, the theme and your children’s character. If you only have one child in the room you can also look at a loft type of bed if you are tired of the same old single bed style.
Adding final touchups
Usually it’s the little things that make the room come together as a whole. A small area rug placed in the right spot can liven up a room and make it appear complete. Sometimes it is a special lamp or a decorative hanging that makes you step back and say “This room is done and I love it!”
When you are decorating a child’s bedroom you’re going to have to put your whole heart into it. Your child will sense when you’re doing this and will respond in kind. With both you and your child contributing from the bottom of your hearts there is no way you can fail. You’ll end up with a room that you’re both proud of.
