Bedroom ideas for your little one

Last week, we gave you some tips on how to take your bedroom from lame to luxe. This week features some ideas on how to give your little ones a bedroom upgrade.

Decorating your little one’s rooms is a fun and exciting process, but it can also be tricky knowing where to start. A child’s bedroom should be a place they can rest in while also being a place for creative play and learning.

It can be hard to find the balance between designing a relaxing space for your child that’s also pinterest-worthy and versatile enough to last for a long time. If you’re finding yourself stuck and in need of some inspiration, take a look at our quick tips on making your kids’ room their haven.

Work out a colour scheme

Whether you want to keep things neutral or go for clashing bold shades, the colours you choose to paint your toddler’s room are an important part of the decorating process. According to colour experts, the shade of your child’s room can actually have an impact on their behaviour. Colours like green and blue have a calming effect, while shades of yellow and orange promote confidence, motivation and concentration.

If you’re more prone to minimal colour schemes, try painting walls in cool, light shades which also aid relaxation, and add a pop of bright colour with a feature wall.

Reflect their interests

Most toddlers are bound to have an obsession or two, so incorporating the things they love into the bedroom is sure to put a smile on their face! This can be done by including themed beds or wallpaper in the space, or could be achieved more subtly with some printed bedding or ornaments.

If your child loves all things princess-related, for example, reflect this by adding some glittery accessories or regal looking furniture into the decor.

Encourage creativity

Since young children are constantly growing and developing their skills, it’s important to keep their imaginations active. Setting up a little table in your child’s room for art and crafts is an easy way to encourage creative flair through drawing and painting. Fill a board with your toddler’s paintings, family photo’s or just images they feel drawn to for a beautiful moodboard.

Creating a reading den in a space of the bedroom is also a great idea, giving your child a dedicated space to look through books and be read bedtime stories.

Add some fun details

Let’s face it, as much as you might want to, you can’t really get away with teddy bear themed curtains or a race car bed in your own bedroom, so decorating your toddler’s room gives you the perfect opportunity to really have some fun! Add details like a quirky patterned rug, wall stickers or even an adorable ceiling mural to delight your little one.

Shop around for cute accessories that will give the space the perfect finishing touch, such as nightlights, light shades and quirky furniture that you could even paint yourself to match the colour scheme.
