Every once in a while we feel the need for change in our lives, so we try to redecorate and remodel our homes.
When it comes to children’s rooms, we have much more freedom to get creative than we do with the rest of the house, and we want our children to be able to express themselves. If you’re hoping to turn your children’s room into an oasis of creativity where they’ll be free to be themselves, we’ve put together a list of four ideas you and they will love.
Any parent knows how difficult it can be to keep the kids’ room tidy, especially when they’re still just toddlers and preschoolers. They like to play with different toys but don’t always remember to put them back after playtime. Shelves are a great way to maximize your storage space and keep the room in order, and there are many different types of shelves for you to choose from. So-called “tree shelves” are the best combination of cute and functional designs, and you can use them to store anything from toys to books.
Kids who like playing with numbers and letters, but who can’t use pens and pencils just yet, will love playing with ‘magnet walls’ and a bunch of colorful magnets. All you need to make this happen is a simple, custom cut piece of sheet metal, some cardboard and nails, a hammer, and as many magnetic alphabet letters as your heart desires. When making holes for the nails, place the sheet metal over the cardboard and hammer a nail into it until you create a hole. When nailing the metal to the wall, start from the bottom and move upwards while making sure there aren’t any gaps or holes between it and the wall. After that, just add letters and there you’ll have it – a giant magnetic alphabet wall.
As we age, we lose confidence in our abilities, but children all over the world love drawing, colouring, and painting, and there seems to be a miniature artist inside them all. Because we know how messy markers, crayons, and watercolors can be, we are always on a lookout for different creative solutions that will allow children to express themselves through art. Your walls can be a new canvass for your child if only you decide to paint them with chalkboard paint. Because this paint can be tricky, you can also rely on professional painting services to get the job done instead. This way, you will be sure that the paint will last longer and that the rest of the room won’t be painted black accidentally.
Tape to the rescue
Sometimes there just isn’t enough wall space for you to get creative, which is why it’s a good idea to look down and use floor space instead. It doesn’t matter if you have wall-to-wall rugs or a small throw rug and plenty of bare floors, you can use colourful tape to turn your kid’s room into a playground. Use the tape to create a maze, hopscotch, Tic-Tac-Toe, a balance beam, or simple zigzag patterns for finger tracing (toddlers and preschoolers love this). Not only do you have a chance to create anything you want, but you can find a different coloured tape and remove it after the children get bored with it.
It doesn’t matter if you’re only decorating your child’s bedroom because you’re expecting your first child or your children are already going to school, and you’re hoping to give their rooms makeovers, these ideas are simple and easy to pull off. Not only will they love spending time there, but space will inspire them and boost their creativity, so they’re always be having fun.
