Renovating a child’s bedroom
Designing a bedroom for your child can be a bit tricky because you want it to last for many years without becoming outdated or grown out of especially if tastes change. Here are our handy tips to creating a child’s bedroom.
Painting the walls
Fight the urge to paint a big mural on the walls because you may find yourself painting it sooner than you think when your child’s tastes change. Instead paint the walls a natural colour and use posters and paintings for decoration; these can be easily changed depending on what your child wants.
Childs bedrooms are usually smaller than other bedrooms in the house so choosing the right furniture is essential. A wardrobe and bedside table are great additions to the room and some under bed storage keeps the room from getting cluttered.
Bed and bedding
A bed is of course the most essential part of any bedroom and choosing one for a child can be a painstaking task. Choose a bed that your child can grow into because you don’t want to be buying a new bed every few years when it gets out grown.
Bedding is another way of decorating the room; let your child choose their favourite cartoon character or football club; this will give them some control on how the room will look like and in turn make them happier with the room as a whole.
If you’re still struggling to come up with some inspiration then have a look online. There are many websites that specialise in bedroom fixtures and fittings such as www.childrens-rooms.co.uk and notonthehighstreet.com that are great resources for finding the perfect products for your child’s room.
