How to decorate your child’s bedroom

There are many things to consider when thinking about how to decorate your child’s bedroom. This is a space where they will be spending a vast amount of time in, whether they’re sleeping, playing or working, so its important to create a comfortable environment for them to express themselves in. One of the key things to consider is how the room is going to grow with the child.

Detailed below are ideas about how to decorate your child’s bedroom from the nursery to teenage hood, so that you can develop the room easily and cost effectively.

When considering how to decorate you child’s bedroom, one important thing to remember is that as they grow, they are likely to want to change the room themselves to match their personalities. This may include using bright bold colours to paint the room, so when decorating their nursery, it is best to paint it using neutral tones such as white, cream or grey. This will make it easy to repaint in the future, and will leave the rest of the room open to use bright, bold colours in the decoration.

Alternatively, if you do want to add some colour to the walls, then bright pastels and patterns can be lovely for children. This will also add some variation to the room, making it light and airy and enjoyable to be in.

Wall art
If you are going to stick with neutral coloured walls, why not jazz them up with the numerous different options of wall art that you can choose from. This includes picture frames, posters or even wall stickers that can be easily removed. This will create an interesting environment for your child to be raised in, without any hassle when it comes to re-decorating.

The furniture that you decide to use will be largely based on the other decor that you pick, as although its nice to have a variety of brights colours for your child to be surrounded by, you don’t want too many that will clash. To avoid this, it is good to use wooden furniture that have neutral tones such as white and brown, so that the bedding and pillows can be bright and colourful.

Pretty lighting in your child’s room can create a cosy and warm atmosphere, and will especially help if they are afraid of the dark. As well as the usual bedside lamp, why not try fairy lights or putting stick on lights above their bed. These sticky stars can also be found on wall paper, which eliminates the chance of leaving a mark when it comes to having them removed.
