In case there would be a contest among the rooms of a house regarding which one is the most fun to decorate, the kid’s room would win by far. The advantage of this room is that you are free to use colors, shapes and everything else that is forbidden by rules in case of the other rooms.
You don’t have to limit yourself to the neutral colors and you have the possibility to explore. You can create anything that you think would excite kids and also stimulate their creativity.
Although you could have a lot of fun, it can also be a burden from a financial point of view. Nonetheless there are some methods that could help you save some money. The items that you might need include pen and paper to do all the planning, paint, paint brush or roller, furniture, wall art and also sticker sheet.
It is just natural that it all starts with the planning. You could add a theme to the room, and there are some that could save you some money, such as space, cars, dinosaurs, sports, superheroes and cowboys in case of little boys and flowers and princess themes in case of girls.
The painting should be started with the ceiling and the walls. When choosing the colors, you should choose some that are suitable for the theme.
The wall decals that you can find in stores might get quite expensive, but you could reduce the costs by printing the graphic designs on sticker sheets at home. Other decorations of the wall include different kinds of art or posters.
These represent a really cheap alternative for art work and you can be sure that the little children appreciate them more. For instance in case of a car themed room you should expose some posters of race cars.
The furniture could be the most expensive part of the room. In case you are on a tight budget you could be looking for furniture items on the internet.
Garage sales and thrift shops could also be a good source for these items. In case you don’t find any of these solutions appealing, buy some old furniture and refurbish it to add it a more modern look.
When looking for the furniture you should make sure that it is suitable for the personality of the room. For example a Victorian bed could be out of place in case of a space themed room.
