If you are looking to decorate your child’s room without committing to anything longterm, use these 10 cheap and easy ways to decorate your child’s room. Because we all know our children’s taste change practically non-stop and I hate the idea of investing a lot of money in something that will be dated in a year. These tips and tricks are so awesome, you will want to try them out in all of your rooms!
When I found out I was having little girls, I immediately fell into the trap of PINK PINK PINK! Yes it’s embarrassing but I just assumed girls would love everything pink. Wrong – one of my daughter’s FAVORITE color is Blue!
And I’m also realizing that as my older daughter leaves the toddler years and moves up in grade school, she is no longer happy with all things princess and teddy bear. She wants a more mature looking room but still with that youthful look.
Who has the time, money or willingness to undertake huge projects to decorate and REDECORATE a child’s room every two years or so? Not me!
So I use these 10 cheap and easy ways to decorate your child’s room.
1. Removable Wall Decals– Removable wall decals are such a cheap and easy way to make a big impact in a room. You can use them just on one wall or EVEN ON THE CEILING! Your kids will love all the cool design options they can choose from! We chose Frozen for my older daughter and she loved helping put them up!
2. 3M Command Strips – We actually use 3M Command Strips all through our house…from hanging pictures and artwork to putting up holiday decorations when we don’t want to put a permanent mark/hole in the wall! In our girls’ rooms, I use these strips to hang their calendars, organize their jewelry, and hang their belts. They come in a ton of different sizes so there is always one perfect for the job you need done.
3. Paint – Paint has always been perhaps the cheapest and easiest way to dramatically change a room. Use that to your advantage when your child wants to drastically change things up in their bedroom. We gave one of our daughter’s an accent wall of pink and let the other 3 be…you guessed it…blue!
4.Throw Rugs & Accent Rugs – I LOVE putting a rug in kids’ rooms! Not only are they inexpensive and come in a TON of colors and styles, you can choose a variety of sizes depending on how much floor you want to cover! Win Win in a child’s room! I love a simple shag rug in a fun color like this one because if gives you a ton of options for bedding and accents.
5. Rearrange Furniture – Kids will be amazed at just how different there room is when the bed is pushed against a different wall! LOL! Move a few pieces around and it’s like a completely new space!
6. New Throws and Pillows – I love shopping at places like TJMaxx and Tuesday Morning for deals on blankets and throw pillows. There are always a LOT of patterns and colors and for less than $50, I can completely re-accesorize my child’s current bedding.
7. DIY Headboard – When we were looking to redo my daughter’s room, I fell in love with the idea of a fabric headboard (her bed had only been a mattress and box spring from the beginning). There are tons of websites that will give you step by step instructions and it really is easy to do! Below is our finished product. Not quite ready to do it yourself? There are very reasonably priced ones out there for purchase, like this adorable polka dot one!
8. Bedding – I always keep my eye out for clearance bedding on places like Amazon (love this one!), Kohls and TJMaxx. For less than $20, I have completely redone my girls’ bedding sets! If you really want to make your money work for you, choose solid colors that allow you to change things up with just pillows and blankets! Psssttt…these are the ones most likely to be on sale too!
9. Use Your Photos As Art – I am HUGE fan of using our family pictures in fun and innovative ways. Check out this article for organizing your photos (step 1) and this one for fun and different ideas to actually use those pictures! This photo of my dining room shows you just one of the great options for utilizing those pictures. Take that same idea and down-size it for a child’s room and they will have new wall art and good memories with them all the time!
10. Get Crafty – I am not a huge crafty person but I still love to make it look like I am! Look how simple and easy this decorating trick is! Simply purchase wood letters from your local craft store, paint/decorate, glue some fun ribbon on the back and hang up! We used basic letters to spell out our girls’ names and to create a fun hanging bow organizer. All for minimal cost!
