Decorating Tips for Children’s Rooms

Decorating Tips for Children’s Rooms

Whether you’re looking for a quick freshen up or a total revamp, decorating children’s rooms can sometimes be a tricky task. As they grow, children can quickly get bored of things that used to interest them, so we have put together a list of our top tips to make sure that you don’t have to go through the redecoration process every few months!

Plan it out 

Save yourself a whole lot of hassle by coming up with a plan of action. Create a mood board of colour schemes and furniture ideas that could work well for your child and let them have a say in what they like the most. If you don’t fancy the idea of constantly redecorating, try to choose colours and furniture that will grow with them.

 

Play it safe 

For the ultimate colour scheme that will grow with your child – think white. A neutral background will enable you to update the room regularly by switching out throw pillows and using brightly coloured posters to bring character. Once they feel like a change all you need to do is update their bedding and add some new curtains. Voilà!

Safety-proof 

If you have a baby or toddler, ensuring that the room is safety-proofed is an essential part of the process. Put child locks on the windows, avoid hanging heavy pictures or mirrors, secure all freestanding furniture to the walls and keep beds away from radiators in case they become very hot.

Choosing the bed 

Whether they are in a cot, their first big bed, or they are teenagers looking to stretch out in a double, the youngsters in your home only deserve the best when it comes to beds!

Make it comfy 

Beanbags are a great way to add some fun comfort to your child’s room, while small tipis and bunk beds also give the room a sense of adventure for little ones. Teenagers will love the addition of a TV or space to study while younger children could benefit from a giant chest to store all of their toys.

6 Biggest Decorating Do’s and Don’ts

Although it can involve lots of hard work, decorating your home can also be really exciting. So, the last thing you need when you’re investing lots of time, money, and energy is for all of your efforts to go to waste! 

Check out our list of do’s and don’ts to make sure your next decorating project is a huge success!

 

DO

 

Plan

Planning your decorating project ahead of time is a great way to make sure that you stick to a budget and cover everything you want to address in the room. Draw up a list of everything that needs to be done, from clearing the room and stripping wallpaper to the fancy finishing touches.
 

Measure furniture

Cramming too much furniture into space can make a room feel small and overcrowded. Measure any potential pieces and mark out where they would fit into the room with masking tape to ensure that there is sufficient space around the furniture to move.
 

Select colours wisely

If your room doesn’t get much sunlight, using bright neutral tones can help to open it up and create the illusion of more light. Dark colours will make a room feel smaller and cosier, so save those for rooms that are able to handle them.

 

DON’T

 

Underestimate the lighting

So many rooms could benefit from the help of some strategically placed floor lamps or beautifully hung light fixtures. Think of lighting as the jewellery that goes with an expensive dinner date outfit. Make sure it shines!
 

Match

It’s great to choose a theme, but when everything matches in a room it can look over-the-top and too “done”. Instead, create a collection of items that relate to and complement each other without being too matchy.
 

Forget about the small details

The little things are what makes a room special, from the print on a fabric to the design of a floor, so don’t forget about them!
