3 Ways To Make Your Kid’s Room Fun

I was recently asked what can I do to freshen up my kid’s room, so thought I would share with you a few fun ideas I found online.

I think it is time to enlist your child’s imagination. Go bold with big statements for their space. It is the one place where you really get to have fun and go very bold with decorating. Remember this is their space, one that is all their own.

Here are 3 Easy Ways to Make Your Kid’s Room Fun

Paint – Using color is the easiest way to really make an impact in a simple way. If you do not want to go all the way with the color, highlight the color behind their bed to make it a focal point in the room.

Do a mural or peel and stick wallpaper

Cover an entire wall in a with a favorite interest. Does child love maps and travel like my son did; if he had this large map wall I don’t think he would ever have left his room.  Love this Peel and Stick one I found on Etsy

Consider covering a single wall with a nice wallpaper for a more grown-up look

Shelving – Think out of the box with shelving like these two examples. Painting the inside or use pattern papers for the back, like they have here.

Paint the shelf itself to make them stand out a little more.

Imagine walking into your living room to find your toddler covered in marker along with your furniture! My daughter's "Marker Art" was a defining moment. It was then that I reinvented my business to find the very best family-friendly furnishings and solutions for my client's homes.

My blog shares the very best of what I have learned about family-friendly design these past 18 years.
