Kids Room Ideas - Easy Bedroom Updates
As the weather turns, as the kids get a bit older, it always raises my spirits to do a little clean out and little update. I don't have the capacity for major room changes for my kids every year but peppering a few changes in their rooms gives everyone something to get excited about. Jump into a project this weekend!
5 Tips for Easy Bedroom Updates
1. The clean out.
It's a never ending cycle of clearing what kids no longer need, want or fit into. Donate it or sell it but the first place to start is to get rid of what is no longer needed.
2. Decide on the big impact item/s
Make a quick plan of what needs be added to bring the room up to date. The big impact items like moving furniture or getting new furniture; painting; introducing a new colour or theme to the room - these are the things that will drive the scope of change and everything you need to do build around those big changes.
3. A change of bed linen is quick and impactful
Updating bed linen can have a massive impact, especially if you opt for the bolder prints and colours like Kip & Co make. My kids love new bed linen, especially ones with patterns or images they can explore through.
4. Storage doesn't have to be boring.
As the kids get older you will need different solutions for storage. Baskets, shelves and lockers will give impact and longevity as well as the extra space you need.
5. Wall decor updates can be easy and impactful.
Depending on the age of your kids, adding decals, posters, garlands, a canopy or mobile to a room can add a point of interest and create impact will little effort.
Here are some of our favourite things to make a big impact.
