While the kids are out of school for the summertime, take the opportunity to put your heads together and switch up their bedrooms a bit with a fresh & updated look. They are growing which means their personalities and styles are evolving too! Whether they want a decked out Super Hero themed room or maybe something more sophisticated than what they had before, check out these helpful tips on how to accomplish it without spending all of your vacation money!Add Some Color!
The easiest way to update your kids’ bedroom would be to add a splash of color to spruce up their space. Find out your kids’ favorite color(s) and shop for things that would be easy to switch out depending on what your child likes and what’s on-trend. One fun way to add color and personality into a room would be to print out photographic prints of your family. If you want the photos to complement a certain color scheme - look for a background that would go well with the theme of your child’s room like a large colored wall, a park or beach, take a few pictures of your family and kids then hang them on the walls for instant fun and personalization!Let Kids Express Their Style
Whether your child is just now getting into the toddler stages or if they’re not so little anymore, your child’s room should truly feel like their own space. If your little man is an adventurer, then hit the discount stores for a world globe and a fun tent for him to play in. For the bookworm in your family, display their favorite collection of books by installing easy shelving or hanging a wire magazine rack. If your children love drawing and painting, you can hang a framed chalkboard on their wall so they can create new artwork to display every day!Timeless Sophistication
In addition to letting your kids have their say in the design of their room, it’s just not practical to over-haul their entire room after they’ve grown out of a stage. Start your design with a general theme that can grow with your child. Go wild with themed accessories, frame and hang artwork, display favorite superheroes but the general design and the furniture should remain the same so you can avoid having to buy expensive furnishings every time your kiddo jumps from one stage to another.Find Pieces Over Time
The day where kids’ furniture sets absolutely have to match is in the past. The trend today is to mix & match complementary pieces with one another. Decorate their room with a doll your grandmother played with as a child or a chair that your father bought for you. Scour the antique shops for quality items that would go well with modern décor. Not only is it a great way to save, but it also develops a colorful and eclectic look, layering in the modern with the old. Yes, it takes time and patience but finding meaningful and beautiful pieces gives kids' rooms character.
While your kids are growing, it’s important to find pieces that are going to grow with your children so you’re not always finding yourself back at the drawing board, revamping their space. Remember to keep it fun and share ideas with your children to create the perfect space!
