Tips for Redecorating Your Child’s Bedroom

Redecorating a child’s bedroom should be fun, not troublesome or difficult. But, you do have to include them in the process, and you have to set a few boundaries along the way. These are a few tips to make redecorating fun for all who are involved, while ensuring the process is going to go as smoothly as possible, and will remain within the budget you have set for redecorating as well.


For curtains, tables, and accent pieces, make sure you choose fun, colourful, and distinct colour shades. It adds a pop to space, keeps it kid friendly and makes it warm, inviting, and welcoming, for other kids their own age who will be in the room as well.

Use their toys

Need decor for the walls? Need something to put in an empty space? Rather than buy pricey items, they are likely going to break or destroy in no time, make use of the toys they already own. A plane, a kite, or even action figure, can all be used as items you hang up on walls or use as throw items around space for decorating.

Let them help

Want to add some art to the walls? Let your kids design it. Don’t buy pricey pastels or wall art, let them design items they want to see, and use these as decorating pieces to put up and hang up around the room. It not only brings the space together well; it truly makes it their own personal space in the home as well. If you are not sure on how to design your children’s bedroom, then you could also hire a painter and decorator to come and give you some design idea’s.

You can find dozens of items lying around at home, you can let the kids get involved, and you can have a fun time when redecorating their bedroom. These are a few of the simple things you can do and use when you are redecorating your child’s bedroom in the home.

  1. What great ideas!! We tried hard to decorate in a way that would last for a long time. Now that my son is 15, we figure he can just save to decorate his apartment when he moves out for college! 🙂 #HomeMattersParty

  2. Great tips for making their own space personal, functional, and beautiful! Love the idea of adding art that they made themselves. 🙂 #HomeMattersParty

  3. We keep it so simple over here. My kids hardly spend anytime in their rooms. Weekends are family nights and we all hang out downstairs together. I am not much of a decor person, but I really wish I was! #HomeMattersParty
