Your child has a vibrant personality, and yet their bedroom is boring and basic. You want to add some colour to brighten up the space, but prefer to do it in a non-permanent way. Instead of painting the walls or installing a wall fixture, you can create bright bedrooms for kids by adding some temporary elements. Here are a few ideas.
Throw blankets, pillows, bed skirts, bed pockets, you can choose these items in bright colours to make your child’s bed stand out. The bed is usually the focal point of the room, so this is a great way to incorporate some colour and fun. For an extra bit of dimension, choose pieces that also offer a print or pattern. This really awesome head pillow by Hej makes a great choice. Pair a few pieces together, but keep the rest of the bedding simple.
You can find furniture pieces like dressers or chests in non-traditional colours, or paint the ones you have. Don’t go overboard and paint more than two large pieces, or you will overwhelm the room. This is a fun way to brighten up your child’s room and you can always paint the pieces back if needed. You can even paint the dresser drawers each a different colour and leave the rest of the dresser as is.
One of the easiest ways to add colour to any room is with artwork. And wall art for children usually comes in fun designs. Finny and Zook makes a really sweet I’ll Love You Forever print that would add colour and a cute saying to your child’s room. Of course, you want to select artwork that is age appropriate and fits your child’s personality. For example, don’t use a piece of artwork that is intended for a nursery if your child is of school age. And don’t choose a princess print if your child is not a girlie, princess type.
Accent your child’s room with pieces that are colourful and functional. You can find storage bins/baskets in bright colours that also serve as a place to store toys. Or you can get a fun clothes hamper for dirty laundry that also provides some colour. Finding items that are dual purpose saves you money and creates a functional space.
Brightening up your child’s room is not just easy, but also makes for a fun project that you can use as a way to bond with your child. Go shopping for pieces together and see what you come up with.
