Many welcome the New Year, with goals such as losing weight, getting organized, finding a hobby and eating healthier. With the New Year I like to get the kids rooms in order to meet their needs. We moved into our home a little over 3 years ago, with major renovations that took place. Now that my kids are three years older, they are talking about sprucing up their bedrooms. Here are 5 cheap & budget-friendly ways to makeover children’s bedrooms.
- Paint-Changing the color of your child’s bedroom is an affordable way to update a child’s bedroom. Let your child or children get in on the fun and pick their color. Remember accent walls look fabulous, so you could keep the entire room a contemporary color, with one bold wall. Want to get really creative? Add horizontal or vertical stripes in a variety of colors. Also for older wooden furniture, consider painting and changing the hardware for a complete new look.
- Wall Decals-We love wall decals! Wall decals are available in many themes, colors and styles such as stickers, murals and stencils. If your child is now fond of sports, flowers and abstract shapes, you will most definitely find them. We love My Wonderful Walls!
- Change the bedding-Get rid of the Cars and Princess bedding and find a new bedding set that will grow with your child for years to come. When we remodeled Gavyn’s room, we chose Army theme, so his bedding will be here for many years to come. Zoe has a beautiful quilt with butterflies. Beyond-Bedding.com has affordable high quality bedding sets for kids of all ages. If you choose a bed-in-a-bag set, you’ll save money by receiving a matched ensemble to complete the bed. I would also recommend Your Zone by Walmart.
- Spruce up the walls-Adding photo collages, wall art, mirrors, shelving, cork board and fancy clocks can change the way the room looks in an instant. We absolutely adore the fun wall clocks from Zazzle. Add cork or memo boards to display some of your child’s fondest memories; photos of family & friends, reminders, phone numbers ad favorite drawings.
- Room decor-This is a big one. Adding accent lamps, bookshelves, throw rugs, picture frames, new window treatments and throw pillows can change the look of the room. We adore the look for faux wood blinds which are in almost all our rooms. We had the best luck with Select Blinds.
These small tips can make your child’s room go from that toddler age to big boy or girl. I know it can be an overwhelming task but let your children help, it will be fun for all. It is life, children grow, and we as parents need to allow their room to change with them. Themed rooms can be fun, but remember children’s interests change often.
