Kids room are so much fun to decorate that it is easy to get carried away. Tread lightly, though. Breaking the bank over decor might be a tad wasteful given children’s constantly changing tastes. We recommend a neutral toned shell that leaves plenty of leeway for creativity. Here are some simple kid’s room ideas to get you on your way.
1. Moveable Art
Skip the elaborate mural in the nursery; go with picture frames instead. Either a single large frame that grabs attention from the word go or an eclectic grid of smaller ones. Buy reasonably priced images from image libraries or online galleries. As your child grows older, you can replace the images from originals by your little Picasso. Alternatively, string together clothesline gallery using fairy lights and clothes pegs. This will double as a nightlight too! Ensure to install this at a safe height, away from tiny curious hands.
2. Make It Stick
A magnetic feature wall is a simple addition that will let your kid interact with his/her space. Toddlers, for instance, could use it to learn their ABCs and 123s. Or you could help your car crazy guy chart out a racing track on it. The tweens can use it as a message board or for a round of magnetic Scrabble. If things are looking a bit grey, add a pop of colour with upcycled upholstery or linen cladding. What’s more, being along a vertical surface makes it space smart and keeps clutter off the floor!
3. The Classic Route
Designing thematic kid’s room interiors are always a bit of a gamble but if you must, it’s wise to choose something that’s popular across age and gender. You can’t go wrong with space, travel or animal themes. Ensure the decor used is easily changeable. For example a set of inflatable globes, in varied circumferences, makes for a unique nursery mobile that can later be used as a desk accessory cum learning aid. Similarly, which kid (or grownup) doesn’t like glow-in-the-dark stars or a wall-mounted moon lamp! Remember to stick to design styles that aren’t confined to a particular age group. Else, pick minimal removable elements like wall decals.
