Do you need some kids bedroom ideas?
Are you at a loss where to begin? Well, no worries! This page will help you get started on your way to creating a fabulous room! I'm glad you're here!
Everyone remembers what their bedroom was like when they were a child. I
had a pink room, with pink curtains, pink wallpaper, and my bedspread
was pink with large daisy flowers. It was an over-the-top "girly-girl"
room! But, I loved it, and it was a room that made me feel comforted,
happy, and safe. And that is what we want to create for little special someone.
So, let’s get started creating a room for your little one. Whether you are looking for girls bedroom decorating ideas or boys bedroom decorating ideas,
applying a few good design principles is all it takes to create a room
your child will love!
Deciding on bedroom themes that you and your child both agree on can sometimes be a little tough! A child’s imagination can dream up a room that can be way over the top. And sometimes, as parents we stifle their creativity with our own agenda. A balance needs to be created so both of you are happy.
When deciding on a theme, try to focus on a theme that can have a longer transitional time. For example, a child who is wanting a certain cartoon character at age 4, will probably not be interested in that same character at age 6.
When it comes to helping kids stay organized, implement a plan ahead of time and it will help guarantee success. Think about easy kid's storage ideas that your child can do by themselves. Baskets are a fabulous way to help them stay organized. If they are too little to read, then label the baskets with photos of what items you want in the basket.
It is always smart to research "storage ideas for kids room". If your room is on the small side, consider purchasing 4 drawer plastic bins and put them on the floor in the closet. This is what I used for my son's socks, underwear, and shirts. Label all the drawers for your child to be able to organize easily.
Make sure your child’s room is safe by having electrical outlets covered, long drapery cords tied up, safety hinges on chest lids, and nonskid backings under rugs.
Nowadays, furniture companies are really focusing on the idea of transitional furniture. Cribs that can later be turned into a twin bed, is an excellent investment. One of the first things you need to consider is the room's space. How many pieces of furniture do you really have the space for, and what is most important? Planning is important when considering kids bedroom ideas.
Children love to have sleep-overs! So, if your space allows, a double bed is a good idea. If you don’t have the space, you could purchase a bunk bed, or a trundle bed.
A small desk is always a good idea if you have the room. This is definitely a transitional piece of furniture!
a tall, long mirror for their room. Even if your child isn’t old
enough to dress themselves, a mirror is an entertaining toy to every
Visit a flea market for unique furniture that you can paint yourself. Add unique character to the room without spending a lot of money! This is what truly makes kids bedroom ideas unique and individual!

There are a lot of different ideas that you can do to add color and character when deciding on kids bedroom decor. Removable wall art is so popular right now! I love it! You can just about find it anywhere! It can be wall words, to illustrations of flowers or sports. Just don’t go overboard. Mix and match the design of this room.
unframed canvas is always a great idea. And, one even better is for
you to purchase a canvas, paint, and brushes, and let your child create
their own canvas! If you are looking for easy kids craft ideas, this one is perfect. They have an afternoon of fun, and then end up with their own personal wall art.
Check into a local muralist and see what ideas they have about wall murals for kids.
When it comes to kids bedroom ideas, I personally don’t like everything to match perfectly. After you decide on your theme, then you should have an idea of what colors you want to use. Mix and match different patterns. If you can’t find the exact comforter, or bedspread, purchase a solid color, and put your color and design in the pillows and the bed ruffle.
Make an easy swag curtain for their room. Or again buy a solid color valance and add embellishments like ribbon with a hot glue gun.
Have fun with the fabrics, and don’t stress about everything being a perfect match!
