Fun Décor Tips for Kids Rooms

Your child’s bedroom is more than just a place they go to sleep at night. This is where they start a new exciting day. They daydream of becoming a princess or firefighter in this room, and they learn to read their first words during their bedtime story. This room should be bursting with personality, but that does not mean you have to plaster Elsa, Sponge Bob, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles all over. Below are some fun and youthful décor tips that will help make your child’s room worthy of the day and night dreams they will have there.


  • Stripes – Think bigger than striped comforters. All you need is a measuring stick and painting tape to create big bold horizontal stripes on the wall. Use two colors or several. Horizontal stripes will also make a small room feel quite large.


  • Small Bean Bags – Get your child one of these comfy balls of beans, and they will be hooked for life. Small bean bags are available in a huge variety of colors and styles, and they are perfect to bring out to the living room for watching cartoons or family movie night. When they grow out of them and need larger ones these small ones become ottomans and pet beds.


  • Floating Shelves – When you mount floating shelves up high enough, you don’t have to worry about them getting walked into, which can cut down on the number of times their head gets bumped throughout their childhood. Decorative baskets and fabric bins can hold clothes, toys, and other odds-and-ends on these shelves, or you can put their books, stuffed animals, and collections on display.


  • Custom Headboards – You don’t need to have an actual headboard to look like you do. Use heavy particle board cut in a fun shape and cover it with a patterned fabric. It is light enough to Velcro to the wall. Every once in a while, you can just switch the material for a fun new look.


  • Homemade Art – Let your child create an art piece for their room. Buy a canvas at the craft store and a couple bottles of acrylic paint, and they can make a masterpiece they will be proud of every time they look at it.


  • Polka Dots – You may not be crazy about polka dots, but kids tend to love them. They are fun and look like bubbles. Go overboard with them. Polka dots pair perfectly with your striped wall.


  • Wall Decals – The selection of wall decals available today is mind-blowing. Whether you want to spell their name or put butterflies or birds all over the walls these decals make it easy and affordable.
