Perfect colour schemes, lovely pictures of animals or trucks or ballerinas, creative decor with just the right balance between old-school chic and contemporary ‘wow’… We all know those gorgeous Pinterest posts of children’s rooms that look like they come straight out of a home decor magazine; images of fabulous kids’ rooms that we see plastered all over social media. The ones that make us green with envy. OK, let me not project… they make me green with envy 🙂
Every time I walk into my kids’ bedrooms I’m always thinking of all the things I would love to do, but never get to do because 1. It will cost a fortune and 2. The time it will take to do a total make-over (my kids will probably be in varsity by then).
I’ve been searching for ideas and inspiration for my children’s bedrooms, and I finally realised that with 5 kids, I am going to be broke by the end of it all!
So, what can I do to brighten up and organise their rooms without breaking the bank?
1. Fresh Linen and Curtains.
Choose a theme your child loves and get shopping. Taking down old curtains and removing drag bedding can brighten up and refresh any bedroom.
There are so many cute and adorable storage units on the market today. What better way to
organise hide all those toys, books and bits and bobs. The right storage creates a clean look and turns the bedroom into a calm space. It’s also so easy to revamp “old” furniture into new and revitalized bedroom pieces.
3. A Centre Piece.
Whether you have tiled, wooden or carpeted floors, a lovely centerpiece can make such a big difference in a room. It can also double up as a play area or a reading spot. A brightly coloured carpet or a wooden table and chairs. And you are set!
Why spend money on wall stickers and paintings when your own child creates the most gorgeous artwork? Frame these pieces and hang them on the wall. Want to spend a little more? Have them copied onto canvas instead.
This is a great way to fill the space and add a personal touch! Pillows, throws, beaded wall hangings, fairy lights, lego figurines, the list is endless.
I guess it all comes down to our creativity, but we don’t need to break the bank and spend money on “custom” created goodies to give our children their dream bedroom…
