From sleeping to playing, children spend a lot of time in their bedrooms. This is why decorating this space in creative ways will spark your child’s imagination. Here are some ideas to inject a dose of fun and character to your little one’s sanctuary.
Calm and neutral
Bold and bright colours are often seen in children’s bedrooms. But employing such colours may not have much longevity, as your child may grow out of it. Try something new with neutral shades instead – this scheme will go a long way as it can be easily updated when your child grows older. Muted tones like earthy grey paired with soothing pastels will create a peaceful atmosphere, which will in turn ignite your child’s imagination. You can even personalise the look by hanging your child’s drawings or displaying toy models.
A bold DIY project
Revamping your child’s space doesn’t have to break the bank. Whether it’s with some leftover paint or wall decals, a strategic splash of colour can instantly brighten up a room. A feature wall is an excellent way to achieve maximum effect with minimal effort. If your kid’s room is already a neutral colour, choose a strong contrasting shade to give the space instant drama. If the walls are already painted a bright hue, try a complementary colour a few shades darker or lighter on the feature wall.
Adopt the Scandi style
Inspired by relaxed living, the Scandinavian style has been trending across homes around the world. And what better way to introduce the concept of “less is more” than in your child’s space? Achieve this laidback look by sticking to crisp white walls punctuated with the occasional burst of colour, enough to energise the senses without overstimulating the mind. Play upon textures by accessorising with rugs or throws to inspire the senses.
Pick a fun theme
