You could also invest in some under bed pull-out drawers which can be used for storing clothing easily.
2. Paint Old Furniture
It’s amazing what a lick of paint can do to a room that is in need of a makeover. If there’s an old bed frame that is looking a bit worse for wear, consider investing in some furniture paint.
There are plenty of great shades out there to choose from, and if you’re feeling extra creative, you can even try out using a stencil.
Be sure to check that the paint you’re using is compatible with the material you plan to use it on. If you’re unsure of what type of paint you should be using, talk to a paint specialist who will be able to help.
This is a fantastic and quick way to give old furniture a new lease of life, and your child will appreciate the introduction of color too.
3. Add New Color to The Walls
Bringing new color to walls in any interior space is going to help bring about a new atmosphere. From dark matt shades to glossy, vibrant tones, there are endless paint colors to choose from, and crown elle paint offers plenty of options.
You can even create a feature wall if you’re looking to spend less money with decorative wallpaper or a block color.
Never underestimate just how much a new coat of paint can help to rejuvenate a bedroom. There are so many ways in which you can get creative with color too; you needn’t spend a ton to bring about an entirely different style.
One thing to note is that if you’re painting a kid’s room to be mindful of sticky fingers! Your best bet is to go for a wipeable option so that you can clean the walls and when needed.
4. Make Some Artwork
Dig out the paintbrushes and buy some cheap canvases to create some homemade artwork for your children’s room. You may even discover a new hobby that you’re quite fond of in the long-run too.
Art materials can be really inexpensive to buy, especially if you visit art stores that have regular discounted sales.
With this decorative touch, you can even get your kids involved too. Why not have them create their own piece of artwork to proudly display on their bedroom wall? Always be sure to supervise your child when they are using paints and choose non-toxic options if they’re particularly young.
Once you have completed your artwork, get some pins, and hook onto the wall for display. You may surprise yourself with a hidden creative talent that you never knew you had.
5. Buy New Bedding
New bedding is a great way to revamp a kid’s room, especially if they have grown out of their old design. Because kids regularly change their likes and dislikes, you’ll probably find they’re interested in a new character or design year after year.
There are plenty of awesome bed sets to choose from, and they can be a great way to create a distinctive theme in a bedroom. For example, if your child really loves outer space, you could go for a solar system design on the bedsheets.
You don’t have to spend a huge amount on new bedding either; there are plenty of homeware stores where you can pick up cheap sets.
6. Upcycle Old Furniture
Do you have some old furniture lying around the house that could be upcycled? Perhaps that old set of drawers you were planning to have removed actually just need some new handles? There are so many ways that you can upcycle old furniture that isn’t just applying new paint.
You could upholster a chair cushion to give the piece of furniture a new makeover or add a decal to a bookshelf. This is a good way to save money if you want to revamp a bedroom while being conscious of your budget.
While upcycling will require a bit of work on your part, the end results can be really worth it. You’ll have a brand-new piece of furniture to admire and use on a daily basis!
7. Apply Wall Stickers
Wall stickers are a fantastic option if you don’t want to paint the walls of a room. There are lots of fun children’s designs to choose from too including clouds, characters, and much more.
Stickers are super easy to apply and are (usually) easy to remove too. However, be sure to choose a sticker that won’t damage the wall upon removal.
As mentioned, children and teenagers often have new likes and dislike quickly which makes stickers ideal. You will be able to remove and replace sticker designs as much as you want (budget depending) without making any permanent decoration decisions.
Stickers can be pretty inexpensive to buy too, and there are thousands of designs available online. Adding character and style to a kid’s bedroom has never been easier with the help of wall stickers!
There are plenty of ways in which you can revamp a child’s bedroom as you can see from the ideas list above. No matter your budget, there are so many ways to decorate a space effectively and without spending heaps at the same time.
