Affordable Decorating Ideas for Your Kid's Room

Affordable Decorating Ideas for Your Kid's Room

Children need to have a bedroom where they feel a sense of connection. This is where they can express their own personality as well as providing a comfortable space for them to rest and sleep. Parents obviously want a nice room for their young ones, but the truth is, sprucing up a kid’s room, or any room for that matter, costs money. The good thing is, there are a lot of ways to decorate a bedroom without breaking the bank. You can create a children’s room that’s visually appealing and provides comfort and a venue for playing, resting, and studying. Here are some affordable decorating ideas:

  • Use crates to create bookshelves and add storage space. Go the DIY route and build shelves and storage spaces made out of crates. Not only are they inexpensive, these projects are easy to make. All you need are timber crates, some paint, and screws or nails. 
  • Frame drawings and artwork. Let your kids take pride in their work by displaying it the right way. Buy affordable frames and display their drawings, artwork, and other small projects. You can create an inexpensive art wall or gallery that can grow bigger as your kids add more artwork.
  • Create a headboard. Another DIY idea is to make your own headboard. You actually don’t need much for this project - just plywood, fabric, foam, picture wire and hangers, a staple gun and you’re good to go. Creating a headboard will not only save you a lot of money, you can also customise it to suit your kid’s personality.
  • Consider using a colour palette that will grow with your child. To avoid having to change the colour of the walls often, you can give the room a fresh coat of paint that is still appropriate even when your kid gets older. 
  • Put more storage space. Aside from crates, you can add hooks behind the door and inside the cabinets so kids can hang their hats and toys properly. You can also buy affordable baskets with covers where they can store books and other items. If there’s space under their beds, use it by adding storage drawers.
  • Look at thrift shops and garage sales. If you need a small table, bookshelf or decorative items, check out thrift stores and garage sales where you can find great pieces at lower prices.
