Mummy says…There is something really special about creating a safe space in your home for your child. Decorating a child’s room is a lot of work, but it is also a lot of fun and fulfilling DIY task. We have a few easy ways to decorate your child´s room…
Decorating the walls
There are lots of different ways to brighten up the walls in your child’s room, so there is no reason to leave them plain. Here are a few of my favourite ideas. Perhaps the easiest approach is to use a canvas print company to turn some of your snaps or images that you have legally downloaded into prints to put on
their walls. Pictures of them with their pets or visiting their favourite theme park are just two examples of photos that would look great on your child´s wall. Having one of their snaps turned into a print is a great way of encouraging them to be creative.
Choosing the right flooring is important. It needs to be hardwearing as well as safe.
Laminate flooring works well for the warmer months. In the winter, all you need to do is to add a large rug if your child finds it too cold underfoot. There are lots of different patterns available and laminate flooring is relatively inexpensive as well as easy to lay.
Choosing bedding and cushions that feature your child´s favourite TV or film characters is a quick and easy way to add a splash of colour. Lots of children love animals, so you could buy them some bedding that features their favourites.
Create a reading snug for them
Adding a simple chair and placing it next to a bookshelf stacked with some of the books they love is a great way to encourage your child to read more. If you add some form of lighting, they will be able to continue to curl up in their comfy chair and read in the winter.
Another approach is to create a window seat. That way they can read in natural light. Plus the body of the seat makes an excellent space to store large items that are rarely used.
Get the storage right
In a child´s room it is particularly important to build in enough storage. A set of colourful wooden boxes that can be slid out from under the bed is a great way to do this. They look good and add a touch of colour as well as providing really practical, easily accessible and safe access to their toys.
Let your child help
If your children are old enough to do so, why not get them involved in decorating their own room. They will really enjoy doing it and learn a lot at the same time. If you are wondering what types of tasks they could potentially do, take a look at this article. It contains some excellent ideas and plenty of guidance.
