If you have a child, then you know that their bedroom is one room where it makes complete sense to have fun, be creative, and be bold. But what if you're stuck on how to decorate your child's room? There are plenty of ideas that are cute, but you aren't entirely sure that your child will love it. There are also some ideas that you feel have been done so many times that they no longer hold any spark. If you're not sure how you want to decorate your child's bedroom, keep reading because we have four ideas that you're sure to love.
We usually hate it when our kids draw on the wall, but with chalkboard paint, you can let your kids draw on the walls of their bedroom all they want. Keep some regular sidewalk or chalkboard chalk in their rooms, and you can watch them let their creativity soar. Try Rust-Oleum Flat Black Chalkboard Paint on a clean, smooth wall for best results.
Paint additives that make the paint glow are a way to make nighttime fun, too. Although the whole wall might be a bit much, there are many ways to incorporate it into the bedroom that are more subtle. For instance, you could add it as a decorative trim near the ceiling, or you could even paint a lamp base or other bedroom item with the paint. Amazing Interior Designs has seven creative ideas for using glow-in-the-dark paint in your child’s room.
Fluorescent Light Covers
Did you know that there are covers that can be placed over the lights in your child's bedroom? They come in many fun designs that will appeal to a wide range of children's tastes. Octo Lights makes a wide variety of light covers for an space-themed, flower-themed, or even animal-themed bedroom. And not only do they provide a fun picture to look at, but they also cancel out the negative effects of direct fluorescent light.
Peel-and-Stick Cork Board
12” x 12” self-adhesive cork wall tiles like those made by Widgetco can be cut and arranged in creative shapes and patterns around your child’s room. But the big benefit is that they also allow your child a place to showcase their latest artwork, a postcard from a friend, or whatever else suits their fancy. Outline your child's favorite animal by finding a picture with a solid outline, blow it up, and trace on the back of the cork.
Don't be timid when it comes to decorating your child's bedroom. Go bold and be creative, because your child is going to love it.
