Getting a child is an exciting time in a parent’s life. There are many things you need to do to prepare and decorating the child’s room is one of them. It doesn’t have to be an expensive affair. It also doesn’t mean painting the walls and leaving it at that. 

Below are creative DIYs you can try to spruce up your child’s room.

1. Use Fabric

Adding wall art to any room brings out a creative and fun aspect to it. It helps if the art is colourful and bright. You can add paintings or posters in your child’s room. If you shop around and can’t seem to find the perfect ones, try and custom make your own wall designs. 

2. Wall Writings

Another great way is to add wall decals with favourite quotes or sayings. They are economical and flexible to use especially if you live in a rental house because you can remove them when it is time to move out. These wall decals don’t work well with textured walls, so it’s best to find a smooth surface or put them behind the door. 

3. Paint Furniture

The most common way to decorate a kids room is by painting the walls. But have you thought of painting the furniture in the room like the bed? This is a fun and colourful way to bring some energy to your kid’s room. 

4. Window Decor

People don’t use this trick often but you can add decor to the windows to change the style of the room. Wrap one long fabric on the window rod to hide sharp corners that are not appealing to the eye. It will look better if the fabric has a pattern.

5. Washi Tapes

If you are looking to create colourful wall designs, this is the best way to do it. You can play with tape of any colour and size especially in a white room to give it a modern style. Washi tapes are reusable and don’t leave a sticky mess on the wall.

6. Reuse Old Things

If you have antiques or things you are no longer using, you can think of creative ways to use them in your child’s room. For example, if you have old tins, you can use them to put plants to give the room the illusion of nature.

  1. […] Having a place where children can play and be themselves is important for their growth and development. If you have children, finding toys laying everywhere is inevitable. Worse still is when you step on one of them and feel immeasurable pain. If you live in a small house, you might lack the freedom to dedicate enough space to create a separate play area for your kids or interior decor.  […]
