Here are some ways to decorate a kids room.
- There are plenty of unique and inexpensive ways to create a fantasy room for a child
- the first step in the planning is to pick a theme. While determining the theme seems like the easy part, it is worth taking some time to think about it.
- Selecting a character like Pokemon is just fine, but consider that three months from now the child may favor Scooby Doo, and there would be an ongoing battle about how you just redecorated.
- Think about using color palettes as a theme, rather than specific characters. "Primary colors" can be a theme, with wall hangings, curtains and comforters to match.
- try a topic that can grow with the child. For examples, a room done in a "jungle" theme can work all the way from a nursery into a room for a 9-year-old child. The four walls of the bedroom are empty canvases for your creativity.
- Some simple but impressive decorating techniques can turn plain walls into works of art. A solid paint can go a long way in changing a blah white room into a cheery environment.
- add inexpensive wall hangings. Find posters from children's museums, libraries and bookstores, then mount the posters onto foam board with re-positionable adhesive spray. Both foam board and spray can be found at any craft supply store.
- Try doing some faux finishing on your walls. It's easy to paint a base color, then dampen a natural sponge, and dip into the second color of paint and dab lightly on the walls.
