Interior decorating is a fun activity to pursue by all accounts. Decorating a kid’s bedroom can be even more fun. Not only do you have the opportunity to really let your creative juices flow, but you are able to get away with more of the ‘out there’ ideas you have. Want to theme your son’s bedroom into a pirate ship? This is your chance. Always wanted to design the perfect bedroom when you were a little girl, but now you are able to do so for your daughter? Time to let your imagination run wild.
The following list will detail the 10 most interesting, quirky and exciting ways to decorate a child’s bedroom, so they’ll never forget the time they spent there.
Talk To Your Child
What does your child want? Which colors do they love? What are they interested in right now? Take the suggestions with a pinch of salt and apply them to your idea. If your child has an undying love for the color blue, maybe implement that and hold back on the ‘dragons’ motif for now.
Wall murals in a kid’s bedroom help a child identify with the family. It helps them expand their imagination. Having a wall mural that you and your child design together will show them you appreciate their input and ideas. Maybe you could start small, and grow it over time as the years pass on. Painting and imprinting handprints, height markers, and different painted or templated designs as they change their interests helps you have a tangible place to see how your child has grown over the years.
All About Interiors
Using weaved baskets made from wood, or recycled furniture could help your child identify with the benefits of creating something worthy of awe from another material entirely.
If your child has a fondness for pirate ships, why not upturn a side rowing boat and use the dividers as a shelving unit? This can look great if done correctly and painted to your child’s taste. You’d be surprised what could double as a tasteful and practical storage space.
Lighted letters are a beautiful way to show belonging. Spelling out the child’s full name or initials along a shelf can really bring the room together and help them identify it as their space. This is especially useful if you’ve recently changed homes. Plus the light doubles as a useful night light if need be.
Enlarging one photo into multiple frames can look fantastic, and can make a great focal point for a room. Having a special photo that celebrates a family vacation can help your child feel loved and included. Personalized decor can be a tasteful, cheap wall decoration.
Incorporating your child’s artwork can really lend a brilliant personal touch to the room. Your child will also feel that they have contributed to the redecorating effort, helping them love and appreciate the space where they lay their head.
Remember, depending on the age of your child it might be worth checking how safe it is. Can a table be climbed on and fallen off? Don’t be afraid to be adventurous but make sure that you are as wise with what you bring into the room. Your child will remember this room all of their lives.
