Decorating a child’s room is something that most parents enjoy, and once it’s done the kids love even more! A child’s room is something they’ll remember forever and creating a beautiful environment for your child to sleep and play in feels great for you too, even if it is a lot of hard work.
There are lots of ways to approach decorating a child’s room. Below are a few tips, tricks and ideas you can use to inspire you and make the job easier.
The Right Bedding
When it comes to children’s bedding there is plenty of choice. Which is just as well as it makes it much easier to find something to fit in with the theme you have chosen for the room. When shopping for kid´s bedding look for a 2 for 1 deal and twin duvet sets, it’ll certainly save you money.
Easy To Lay And Maintain Flooring
For a kid’s bedroom laminate flooring is a very good option. It is affordable, as well as easy and fast to lay and once down, it’s easy to keep clean. In the winter, you could need a couple of rugs, so be sure to choose the type that has a non-slip backing.
Choose Paint Instead Of Wallpaper
There are lots of ways to decorate the walls, but by far the easiest approach is to paint. That way, when it is time to update the room all you need to do is to sugar soap the walls and repaint. Wallpaper can look nice, but, when it comes to redecorating, removing the old paper may be more hassle than it’s worth.
In all likelihood, you will end up decorating your child’s room every three or four years as they grow older, and begin to enjoy different trends. Therefore, you should consider what might be the easiest way of doing so.
As you will see painted walls does not mean settling for a boring bedroom. There are several really easy ways to brighten things up.
Wall stickers are a super easy way to create interest and theme your child’s room. You can buy them in large DIY stores and online. Just be sure to choose the easy peel type. These can be removed without leaving behind any glue residue provided the room does not get too hot and you don’t leave them up for too long.
Create Your Own Wall Art
If you are good at drawing or painting another option is to create your own artwork. Potentially, the kids could even help with this. You can draw the outline and cut in each area with the right colour paint and let your child fill in the rest.
A Collage Wall
For older children, a collage wall can be a great option. It’s not only fun, but also a project that you can all do together. Plus, it is really easy to update to keep the room looking fresh and adapt things to suit your son or daughter’s tastes as they get older.
Let Your Child Contribute

By far the best way to do this is to get your child involved in the decorating process as soon as they are old enough.
