How to Decorate Your Child’s Bedroom

When you have a child, you do a lot of upgrading to the room to express their age and personality. It’s important for the children to have their own space in the house.


Keep in mind that your child’s age will dictate how you end up decorating their room.

When your child is younger, you want colors that are bright with many interesting things in their room. It doesn’t matter if you have a boy or a girl… red, oranges, greens and yellows will do. Never use a theme to decorate a room. Why? As your child gets older, the theme becomes old. Instead, use something simple to match the rest of the room.

Toddlers like cutesy type dressers but when they get older, they’ll complain that it’s too babyish for them. Paint it to match the rest of the room’s new color. If you can, put some additional pieces of furniture in the room. Still have a changing table? You can work with it to make it look fresh and new. Need more space? Put up wall shelves that aren’t too high and decorate them.

Does your child like to sit and read? Then get them a chair in their room. Many chairs can be just their size or place an extra chair (that matches the color) into their room.

Replacing window coverings can work wonders too. Make sure they match the walls so they don’t overly stand out.

By taking these steps, your child will feel more mature.
