Decorating the Best Kids Room

Need to remove all furniture form the room and clean down the walls with warm soapy water. Ask your child (if old enough) what their favourite colour is Use this colour with at the bottom of the wall painting half way up and use white or another colour for the top section of the wall. Use a ‘freeze’ that is approximately 20cm wide where the two colours meet (as you are using a freeze your painting where they meet doesn’t have to be perfect). The type of freeze you use varies depending on the age and sex of your child. You can paint the child’s favourite colour at the bottom of the two walls opposite each other and the top of the other two walls. This is a unique look, but the classic look is to leave the bottom of all the walls the same colour and the top another colour.

For example if this room is for a seven year old girl’s room, then you could have two tone pink walls. The bottom might be dark pink and the top light pink. Add a freeze strip that goes in the centre of the wall (horizontally) with picture on then, such as; fairies or butterflies (make sure the freeze has a white back group or there will be too much colour). The freeze should be exactly half on each colour of it will look out of balance. Once the walls are dry and the freeze is in place you can add wall stickers to the top section of the wall, to keep with the same theme; fairies, butterflies, angels, etc. For the girl’s room you can place small hooks around the top of the walls and hang fairy lights to act as their night light.

An example of a boy’s room may have two tone blue with a freeze that contains Marvel characters. As the same as the girls room you can add wall sticker or posters up the top of the wall. Instead of the fairy lights you can use the LED wall lights for the kid’s night light. The ones you can get for Marvel are amazing and kids love them.

The furniture that goes very well in kids room are a little table and chairs for their art work, playing games or tea parties. You can also purchase portable kids tents from Ikea that are amazing for the kids to play in If you have a raised bed, like a bunk-bed. You can attach a slide to the foot of the bed where the can slide down instead of climbing down the ladder which can be dangerous. Plastic tubs that shit on racks are a great storage idea, that look bright and colourful for the kid’s toys.
