Sheets are another multi-tasking tool that works wonders in a child's room. Of course, you can put them on the bed, but there are a number of creative uses for sheets that have nothing to do with sleeping. They make great curtains - just cut the side edges along the top or bottom hem and slip them on a curtain rod. Sewn together, two sheets can make a super easy duvet cover. Cut them up, and they become table covers for night stands or banners for the walls. Sheets can be used to make a pile of decorative pillows to brighten up the bed. Use your imagination, and let the kids get involved. You may be surprised at the fun and ingenuity.Throw rugs bring in color and can be switched out easily and at little cost. They also do a great job of protecting the floor from damage, crumbs and kiddie messes. Lighting can also play a role in the decor of kids rooms. A bit of spray paint on an old shade or lamp base can make a big difference, and it's easy for the child to help with a simple project like this.
There is probably nothing more fun that decorating a kids room. They simply love having a new room that has a spark of their own personality. Allowing your child to help you decorate is a great way to bond and to get to know them. While many parents may not want to have their kid's input, it is important to allow them to choose some aspect of their room such as the color. There are many other creative things that can be done to make a kids room truly unique.Murals - One of the hottest fads for decorating a kid's room is having a mural painted. You can hire someone to do this or you can do it yourself with your child's help. There are many stencil packages that can be purchased at DIY stores that make it easy to paint your own mural. You simply trace the characters or scenes and then paint in the same manner as you would a paint by numbers kit. Hiring someone to paint the mural can be easier but more expensive. Painting with your child can be a fun task.
