Hunting for bedroom makeover ideas to create the perfect play or sleep space for your little (or not so little now!) girl or boy? Refreshing a child’s room as they grow older doesn’t necessarily mean a full renovation every few years.
In fact, creating a timeless children’s bedroom that adapts and grows with your child is easier than you think. First, use classic furniture that works well for all ages and will last through the years. Second, keep things fun and fresh with unique accessories that reflect your child’s personality and imagination as their passions or interests change.
Here are our top tips for easily injecting personality and colour into your little one’s room.
Many design experts recommend starting with a neutral colour scheme. Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean your children’s bedrooms will be boring! Ultimately, a neutral colour scheme acts like a blank canvas, so you can easily add personality and change up the decor as your child grows up.
Choosing neutral furniture that matches the rest of your house makes it simple to add fun pops of colour whenever your little one discovers a new hobby or interest. Removable wall decals like these adorable mint dots by Homely Creatures are a great way to add colour, texture and a touch of whimsy. If you’re looking for something more dramatic, why not create a large mural with these bigger wall decals from Petit Collage?
For the best result, play around with a combination of bold colours and subtle accents to design a space where your child can play, feel creative and have fun, but still unwind and relax enough to fall asleep.
One of the easiest ways to add colour and personality to children’s bedroom decor is with colourful accessories in different textures and patterns.
How can you achieve this? It might be as simple as a change of bed linen or pillows! Colourful and vibrant pillows like this Confetti Cushion Square by Sack Me! will create a cheerful play space. For slighter older kids, feel free to add whimsy with this Goldfish Cushion by Dreamers Inc or even this delightfully funny Krispy Dreme Pillowcase!
