Redecorating your child’s bedroom can sometimes feel like fighting an impossible battle. After all, you want to give their room a makeover that they will love, but that’s also practical, inexpensive and will survive their many changes of mind.
The easiest way to meet all these criteria is through accessorising rather than going for a full-blown makeover. By doing this you avoid committing to a huge decorating project and of course will save a lot of money too.
There are plenty of homeware companies that provide fun yet practical accessories for children’s bedrooms, like Vertbaudet, whose new children’s bedroom range is sure to inspire. To start you on your path to an affordable makeover, here are three top tips for making a room that you and your child will fall in love with.
One of the easiest ways to brighten up a room is through soft furnishings like bedding and curtains. Curtains can be a good choice to make as they are usually inexpensive and there’s so much choice available that you can easily get hold of them in your child’s favourite colour.
If there’s a special print or character they like, why not buy some fabric and try making your own for a truly unique look?
Kids love to join in with decorating projects, and an easy way to get them involved without making a mess is by letting them choose some wall stickers. Lots of places sell packs of themed stickers so whether they’re a fan of cars, spaceships or butterflies you’ll be able to find something to give their room an instant makeover.
Why not let them choose how to arrange the stickers to give them a sense of control over the look of their room? As soon as they change their mind about what they like, you can just peel off the stickers and start again.
Transform your child’s bedroom with a patterned projector lamp. You can get hold of one of these for fairly little cost from most homeware stores and there are plenty of themes to choose from.
One of the best is this lovely star lamp which projects the night sky onto the walls and ceiling. With just a flick of a switch you can change their room back to normal. A projection lamp is also ideal for soothing children who are afraid of the dark.
