4 Ways to Redecorate Your Child's Bedroom This Spring

16 March 2022

It's almost springtime, which means people are getting excited about refreshing the decor in their homes. There's no better time to do so than now, which means you need to start thinking about how you’ll decorate your child's bedroom.

Bedroom makeovers are a great way to modernise a child's space. They can be a source of fun and help transform your child's room into a more "grown-up" space. They also help you create a comfortable sleeping and space that your child can grow into.

If you're only just toying with the idea of decorating your child's room, here are 4 tips to help you get started.

1. Decorate with a theme in mind

One of the simplest ways to decorate a room is by using large sheets of paper, such as paper plates and stars, and writing your child's favourite songs or characters on them. For example, you can use a sheet titled, "My Bedroom," which should work as an inspiration for creative DIY activities.

On the other hand, if you're looking for more creativity, you can create a theme for your room. Using a theme will help you organise your decorations and keep your child as an inspiration. If your child loves certain styles of photos and artwork, try creating a mood board on a platform like Pinterest to inspire you.

2. Get your child's feedback

Children can be very honest in telling you what they like or don't like about their bedroom space, so getting their feedback before you decorate is a great idea to ensure that the room is everything that the child wants it to be.

When doing this, though, you need to keep in mind that you don't want to overwhelm your child with too many options. Doing so will take away your child's creativity and even make it harder for them to decide on their favourite choices. Instead, have only three or four options for them to choose from.

It's important to feature colours that will bring out the best in your child's personality. If you're not sure what colours or patterns your child likes, try to remember their favourite book and colour of clothing they prefer. If you think your child might like blue, have at least 2 or 3 options for blues.

Once you know what colours and patterns that your child likes, you can use those as options for decorating their bedroom.

3. Keep it simple

Having a child's room look like professional interior designers had a hand in decorating it is unnecessary. Realistically, your child isn't likely to be fussed about the minor details of the room's theme, so keep everything simple and be creative.

For example, you can use bright colours to give the room a colourful effect. You can also use a few items in the same colour scheme, so it looks like your child has an entire rainbow and other colourful images on their walls.

You can do this by using pieces of art - such as portraits of characters or photos of your child - to decorate the walls. You can also get creative with designs and textures, such as using painted tiles, rugs and curtains in your room.

Another simple method to help you refresh the decor in your child's bedroom is by updating the lighting. Nightlights can light the room and add a soft glow. You could also use colourful lights such as star lights, glow-in-the-dark stars, and ornaments to create a more realistic atmosphere for your child. Perhaps even try moving a lamp closer to your child's bed so that it provides a gentle glow of light that makes them feel like they're sleeping in a galaxy.

4. Choose the right furniture

If you want to make your child's bedroom a comfortable and inviting space, then it's important that you use the best furniture to achieve this goal.

If your child enjoys sleeping on a specific type of bed, then it's important that the bed has a good mattress and one with adequate support. You could also get soft pillows to hang over the headboard. A good quality duvet is also essential so that you can keep your child warm in the winter months.

Change the style of your child's bedroom furniture too. You can do this by getting your child an adjustable and ergonomic desk, which can be attractive and easy to clean, as well as supportive of their growing body.

You should keep the paint on these pieces of furniture. However, if you see that the colour of your child's bedroom is already a little outdated or too young for them, then you can change the theme of the things in the room. For example, you can repaint all the walls with a lighter colour or have some colourful cushions to replace the old ones.

In conclusion, redecorating your child's bedroom is a great way to add more personality and sophistication to their space. Whether you do it yourself or hire an interior designer, it's important that you make the room comfortable for your child so that they can have a restful sleep.

The result should be a bedroom that’s fun to live in and is fit for purpose for a growing young person.
