Bedrooms are our sacred spaces. A place for us to rest, relax and unwind, and a child’s bedroom should be no different. In fact, a child’s bedroom even more important and it is also where they grow, learn and play. The room should be a reflection of our personality, whether that be bold and bright or calm and comfortable. Read on for our top five ways to revamp your little one’s rooms, making them the coolest kids around.
Double it up
If you have two in a room and a lack of space, then bunk beds are the perfect choice! Kids bunk bed sets are a perfect way to give your kids more room to play whilst adding a bit of excitement to bedtime. The only problem you’ll have is choosing who gets to have top bunk! If you’re really strapped for space, then here are some great tips on how to maximise the area you’re working with.
Wallpaper is a relatively easy fix to brighten up a bedroom. Pick a style that your kid will love. If they’re a fearless explorer then a map print will add some inspiration to their lives. If they’re glamorous and girly then pink and sparkly paper will have them smiling.
Add a desk
Lockdown equals home schooling, and a super smart desk will give your kids the motivation to do their work. If they feel like an adult, they’ll be more likely to act maturely and want to put some effort in. If your budget or space doesn’t stretch to a new office corner then create a cosy reading nook with a small bookshelf, a beanbag and a pile of fluffy blankets. They’ll be rising up the ranks in Zoom class in no time!
If your kids are a little older but not ready to give up their childhood toys then put up some shelves and display all of their beloved bits so they can look at them daily. Pop soft toys into deep box frames to make them a feature that they can keep forever! If you want to go the whole nine yards add some vintage toys from your childhood to create a museum of play pieces throughout the ages.
If your child is a hitting their teens, then they’re going to want to decorate their space on their own terms. Try and avoid letting them paint the whole room black or letting it slide into a messy pit, and encourage them to embrace some stylish interior ideas that fit with the rest of your home. Multiple picture frames are a great commitment-free way to jazz up a blank wall and a string of fairy lights can do wonders. Even something as simple as new bedding, cushions or lamps can refresh the room and make it feel like a totally new space.
