As we all know, kids grow up so fast. Before you know it, your baby will be a toddler and then a teenager. As they are growing up, their bedrooms will become their safe havens and it needs to grow along with them. As it can be hard to keep up, here are 10 ways to makeover your kids’ bedroom.
1. Make Things Accessible
As your kids are growing, they will have more things and it will be less about safety and more about accessibility. By making things more accessible in a kid’s bedroom you are slowly making the transition to an adult bedroom. Start by making things like blankets, books, toys and books accessible to them at all times.
2. Put Up Fun Wallpaper
One of the easiest and most fun ways you can makeover your kids’ bedroom is to get new wallpaper. Let them pick it with you as their opinion matters when it comes to their room. Rather than picking something that has a theme, go for more neutral ones that will still bring some character to a room.
3. Add Handy Storage
like we have mentioned before, as your child is growing up, they will have more interest, therefore, they will have more things. One of the best ways you can makeover their bedroom while making it a functional update is adding more storage space. It will allow them to keep their room clean and clutter-free as everything will have its own designated space.
4. Create Different Zones
Kids love to collect little trinkets and toys. Instead of battling it, help them out by creating different zones for everything. Even if their room is small, creating zones will help them stay organized and focused on the tasks they are doing. Create zones where they can study, relax, do art and dedicate their time to doing a particular thing without getting overwhelmed by other things.
5. Create a Cozy Spot
No matter how old your kid is, they should have cozy spots in their room. One of the best ways to get that is by getting a fuzzy soft carpet. Looking into carpet installation is especially great if they have hardwood floors. Another thing that you can add on top of the carpet is a tent or a bean bag where they can go to relax.
6. Display What They Already Have
Instead of throwing their old toys away or storing them in an attic, make use of them and put them up as decorations. Let them select ones that they would like to keep and display and you will bring more sentimental value and warmth to their room. If they have artwork that they are pounding, frame it and use it as wall décor.
7. Add Some Greenery
Landscaping projects for home yards and gardens is one of the biggest concerns for home owners. There are so many different plants you can choose to put in your kids’ room that will make the environment so much healthier. It will not only make their air cleaner it will also teach them about responsibility as well as act as décor. But one thing that you have to do is to make sure that you aren’t picking plants that are toxic if consumed.
8. Mix and Match Patterns
One of the most popular and simple ways to spice up your kids’ room for the new upcoming year is to add new fun patterns and colors to it. It is not only very budget-friendly it is also the best way to match their personality and add more liveliness. Add new cushions, colorful curtains and rugs and their room will instantly feel different. But make sure that all the things you are adding are not underwhelming and distracting to them.
9. Update Old Furniture
As your child is growing up their taste will change along, therefore they will always have a new favorite color or a new trend that they would like to follow. But that doesn’t mean that you have to buy them new furniture every time they like a different color. All you need to do is add little accents of those colors. That is done by painting the hardware or even the furniture itself. It is truly the best way to add both liveliness and a splash of color they like.
10. Frame Your Kids Artwork
We can all agree that prints look really good in a kid’s bedroom but they can get quite expensive. That is why there is nothing better than framing and hanging up your kid’s art. That way you are encouraging them to create and have fun as well as decorating their room.
As you can tell, doing a makeover doesn’t have to be stressful or overwhelming. All you need to do is to ensure that you are including your child when making decisions as it is their room you are taking over.
