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

Why not go with a mural to add a fun touch to an ordinary wall.

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.
