Get Your Kids Involved

Let your kids get involved in the decorating, and, if they’re old enough, allow your children to choose the theme of their room. It’s a fun way of keeping little ones out of trouble, and might even encourage them to keep it tidy.

If your child is too young or simply wants to paint everything pink, you can compromise with a neutral backdrop or introduce color gradually with curtains, fun wall stickers and other accessories.

Use Tons of Storage

Make room for clever storage: store toys in colorful, see-through plastic boxes for quick access to beloved teddy bears or their miniature car collection. Kid sized shelving units are useful for keeping book collections tidy and are easy for little fingers to reach. 

Always Look For Safe Products

Keep furniture safe and fun.  Furniture should offer a vast array of smart ideas such as bunk beds that are great space savers; giving more room for playtime or inviting friends over for pajama parties.

Secure free-standing furniture by affixing it to walls, and ensure drawers won’t be used as climbing steps by installing child-proof systems.

Lighting Changes Everything

Cozy lighting options such as dimming light switches are especially useful for checking on slumbering young ones. This choice of soft lighting also comes in handy for children that may be afraid of the dark, whilst lamps and night lights in soothing colors will encourage hyperactive children to snuggle down at night. 

You might like to divide up your child’s new bedroom by creating different areas for sleeping and playing. Big cushions or beanbags can liven up any play area, and this separation will help encourage a more regular bedtime routine.

Most Importantly, Have Fun

The key is to have fun decorating your kids bedrooms and getting your children involved; see where their creativity and imagination goes.  It’s worth keeping in mind that since children have a tendency of changing their minds, you might want to think twice before going for that Harry Potter mural!
