It only takes a little money and imagination to make over a child’s bedroom. You can get a free estimate for your home renovation so that you know exactly what the design will cost and what you can include to give the child the look that is desired. There are a few ideas that are easier to create than others are; many only require a bit of paint and a few accessories.
A fun idea for children who like pictures is to make a mini art gallery on one wall. Get a few wooden picture frames, and paint them in colors that match the rest of the decorations in the room. Girls might like pink, purple and green while boys might like blue, red and yellow. Turn the frames in different positions to give a look that one might see in an art gallery.
Accessorize the room with patterns. Instead of using boring lines and solid prints, consider using flowers, trucks, curved lines and other patterns that will give an identity to the room instead of keeping it boring in design. Colorful pillows on the bed or on a chair can bring out the personality of the child. You could also add a large rug so that the flooring is not messed up as much as it would without anything on the surface. Gather a few pieces over time instead of paying for a new bedroom set. You can start doing this when you find out you are pregnant with your child or when the child is a toddler. This will save money and it provides an eclectic look to the room. If you find pieces that are mostly made of wood, then you can easily paint over them as the child grows and develops a love for one design over another.
Use your sewing machine to make pillows, slipcovers and other decorations for the room. Your child probably will not want the same design in elementary school that was there as a baby. Sewing your own designs makes it easy to change out the patterns as the child gets older.
