As children get older, what may have one previously been a suitably decorated room, now, to them at least, appears to be too childish and they want something that’s a bit more grown-up. Whether that’s a new bed, some new wallpaper, or some new wall prints, there are various ways you can re-decorate your child’s room without having to do too much.
Get New Wallpaper or Re-Paint the Room
This is probably the most obvious one, and that is to either put some new wallpaper up or to re-paint their room. This can be the trickiest part, but if the walls are looking quite childish compared to your child’s age now, it may be best to focus on this part first.
For example, you may have put some wallpaper up that featured some characters from your child’s favorite TV show or film from when they were two years old. However, now they’re a few years older, they might no longer be interested in that show or film and are more into something else.
This doesn’t mean you should put up a wallpaper that contains the characters from your child’s favorite TV show or film now. It may be a safer bet to put up some patterned wallpaper or to paint the walls one color. Or, even have a feature wall where one wall is painted a color, such as purple, and the other walls are white. This means they’re less likely to grow out of this sooner, which means it will be less time before they may want their room re-decorating.
Add a Bean Bag Chair
A bean bag chair is a great addition to any room, and particularly your child’s bedroom. They may choose this bean bag chair to sit in whilst they read a book or whilst they are playing with their toys.
You can even buy a giant bean bag chair, and these can fit multiple people on at any one time. This means your child could have some friends around and they could all sit together on this giant bean bag chair, while they read or play together.
Bean bag chairs are stylish and can add a little pop of color to the room. Plus, if you put this in one of the corners of their bedroom, you could hang up some hanging fairy lights to hang down the wall, and this can help give the room an extra cozy feel to it.
Get a New Bed
A part of growing up means you get taller and that means needing a bigger bed. The size of bed your child has when they are a toddler is unlikely to fit them when they are a bit older. If this is the case for your child, then a new bed is in order.
This new bed can be any size, but obviously, you are going to need to bear the size of their bedroom in mind. For example, if your child’s room isn’t that big, you may not be able to fit a queen-size bed in there, and so, a twin or twin XL size bed may be more suitable.
You will also want to make sure that the bed suits the theme of the room. For example, if you choose a bed frame that is a dark color, but the other colors in the room are quite light, it’s not all going to go together.
Finally, you are going to want to make sure the bedroom is something your child wants and is suited to their taste. After all, they’ll probably spend a lot of their time here, so you want to make sure it’s something they love and can’t wait to come back home to.
