Furnishing and decorating a bedroom for kids can be a fun and interesting project to take on, especially if you get your youngster involved in the process. There are many home decor ideas for children’s bedrooms that make it easy to find the right furniture, decor items and organizational products for his or her room. Here are some helpful ideas on how to remake a bedroom for kids that is both fun and practical.
One kid or two?
The sleep space is the first thing to consider when remaking a bedroom area. If you have two kids that share a room, then you will want to consider what type of beds are best suited. Most families do well with a typical twin bed set, but there are many types of beds that can be selected. Some are made as bunks, while others are made in an L-shaped design with stairs. These are especially fun for kids. Some bunks are also made with a full size mattress area on the bottom and a twin size on the top. Older and younger children can more easily share rooms with this type of sleep system.
Organizational space is important
Another thing to consider when redoing a bedroom for children, is how much storage space is needed. As most parents know, there seems to never be enough closet space, chests and other areas to store personal items, toys and more. So, be sure to decide how you can add more storage areas to the room. One good way to add extra storage space without taking up any more floor space, is to choose a bed that is made with drawers built into the frame. These add a large amount of storage and are very practical. Also, you can add a box-like shelf system that can contain plastic or cotton duck baskets for additional storage. These are great for toys, shoes, and just anything else.
Make the most of your money
If you have a small budget, be sure to choose the most important furniture and storage items first. You can sometimes find what you need for discount or outlet prices through online stores. You can also search the newspapers and garage sales for lightly used items that are perfect for a child’s bedroom. Another idea is to sell your child’s old furniture and other items not in use and put that money toward his or her bedroom remake. You can also be creative and refinish a few pieces of furniture and hand craft some very cool wall decor items that make the room pop with style. Be sure to get your youngster involved as much as possible when making a bedroom for kids, so that it’s always a fun place to hang out.
