How to Decorate a Kid's Bedroom
You may want clean shapes and neutral colors in your bedroom, but kids require a little more stimulation. Keep your kids excited and inspired with fun energetic designs. We've got your easy, how-to guide for decorating your kid's bedroom!
Decorate the Ceiling
Little ones may be short, which just means that they spend the first segment of their lives looking up at things — parents, buildings, teachers, trees. Take advantage of their gaze with eye-catching ceiling decor. You can hang fun Chinese lanterns or modern colorful chandeliers for daytime, and have them help you decorate the ceilings with glow-in-the-dark stars and moons for night. Download pictures of constellations and recreate them across the ceiling.
Stock your kids' bookshelves with colorful funny books with brightly designed covers. Use funky "stress balls" and educational activities to fill up the space instead of just covering it with baskets of toys.
Incorporate a Theme
You've seen those crazy themed kids' bedrooms on shows like Extreme Home Makeover, but we're talking about a subtler version of this. If your kids like cooking, make them a personalized apron, or make fun jacket hooks out of cooking utensils. You can incorporate little things like this to match the room, but which can be easily changed as your kids' likes and dislikes change.
Decorate with Toys
Your kids' toys are bright and colorful and they come in lots of fun sizes and shapes. Use a carpeted city, atlas, or ocean area rug (or learning carpets) for color and fun, and put large toys out in the open for decoration. This helps save on storage space as well!
Kids like to bounce and move around, so make sitting more fun with decorative chairs! You can use various colors and patterns of beanbag chairs, and provide medicine balls for them to sit and bounce on. Make sure youve also got a plush area rug in there for the times when they just want to sit on the floor!
