If you set out to decorate your kid’s bedroom, there are no two ways about it: Its go big or go home. Decorating a kids’ room doesn’t mean you have to scrimp on style or class even if you are on a budget. Style as we know, is forever. In fact, it opens up a whole new world of exciting designs and possibilities, even for small spaces.

It’s the perfect excuse to be bold, brave or as magical as you want. Whether it’s a girl’s room, a boy’s room or a nursery, we have put together some amazing children’s bedroom ideas to drool over, from furniture to accessories like kid’s wallpaper, paint ideas and many more. A child’s surroundings can have a huge impact on how they grow and develop, so parents should try to make their children’s living spaces as comfortable and fun as possible within their means.

PAINT IDEAS
Using Blue and neutral: a robust neutral can warm up the sharpest of blue tones, creating an inviting feel with an edge of smart sophistication.
Using Yellow and Green: Uplifting and radiant colours, both colours blend well together to provide a balanced space with astonishing beauty.
Sunny shades: create a colourful look for both sexes by using sunshine yellow but give it some attitude by adding cool grey to the mix. You can paint the woodwork the same shade to keep the look uniform.
The more colours the better. You can never go wrong with incorporating several paint colours in a room. Just ensure it is neatly and cleverly done.

‘TREES’
Children’s rooms are the perfect place to let your (and your little ones’) imaginations run wild. Why not get the creative juices flowing and create your very own bookcase tree?

These are a wonderful means of decorating and keeping a ton of things apart from books. Bookcases are a mix of form and functionality and there are no limits to how creative you can get with them. They are also a means of conserving space as they can double as a storage unit.

WALLPAPERS
There are several fantastic children’s wallpapers in the market today; it’s just a matter of knowing where to look. A visit to any big market would give you a variety of options that would leave you hard pressed to choose. Wallpapers may eliminate the need for paint but gives more variety in beauty and variation.

ACCESSORIES
You can accessorize according to your budget and taste. From wall clocks to lamps to table and chairs, pillows, bed covers, floor covers and toys, the possibilities are truly endless. The good thing about children’s accessories is that you usually have so much to choose from no matter the sex of the child.
