Whether you're decorating an empty kid's room from scratch, freshening up their room with a little paint, creating a functional storage system or simply trying to clear the clutter - it's important that you work as a team. Decorating and organizing kid rooms takes teamwork. Of course, with babies and toddlers you need to take full control but as your children grow so should their responsibility in caring for their room. In order for kids to have a space that's really theirs, we need their input. Likes and dislikes need to be discussed. As well, compromises need to be made when it comes to room color, furniture, stuff, cleanliness and how to mesh everything together in one room.
Don't go overboard with large and expensive changes. I tend use more accessories and paint. Great options are removable wall decals; they come in every size, color and theme. They will give you a great look, using the child's interest with a small price tag. You can blend them with a wall color (their choice) even if just on an accent wall. Another favorite of mine are carpet tiles; they add great color and texture. Using accessories that follow the theme of the room make it is easy to change in the next few years as you child and their interest grow.Mom and dad you set the tone for this adventure. Do not do this when you or the child is stressed, unhappy or not ready to have fun. This can be great fun. One warning, when they want something you really hate or it doesn't fit in the room...Let it go don't make a big deal out of it, never say, "No you can't have that". A set up for war...it usually goes away when you are very excited about the child's other ideas the things that are workable.A Kids room makeover can be something a child will remember forever. Keep the kids out of the room until the very end and let them walk into a finished space...and watch what happens! I invite you to find out more, about how to design a kid's room with me.
