When it comes to decor, kids can be fickle. One day, they want purple walls then suddenly they want to go all Rolling Stones and paint it black.
Within a blink of an eye, down comes the Little Mermaid poster and up goes Shawn Mendes. Without warning, the baseball-loving kid is suddenly obsessed with soccer.
Changing a room from floor to ceiling each time your kid changes his or her mind can be time consuming and expensive. So, what’s a parent to do?
Home improvement shows make painting look easy but the rest the of us know it can be messy and time-consuming. So, when it comes to painting your kid’s room, stick with white, beige, or grey tones.
It may sound boring but you can use color in other parts of the room. And you can always add color to the walls with stickers, poster or art.
Since the bed is the focal point of any bedroom, changing the comforter is the easiest way to give the room a whole new look for very little money.
For little kids, the VCNY Home Croc the Crocodiles reversible comfortable is an adorable choice for animal-loving girls or boys. When your child gets older, you can reverse the set to the more grown-up multicolored, striped design on the other side.
Your child’s choice of entertainment heroes may change but family will always be important--even when they pretend you’re not.
Fill colorful frames with photos of loved ones who live both near and far. Or have a blanket made of pics from a favorite family vacation.
A corkboard hung over a child’s desk is another great place for photos of family.
Curtains aren’t just for decoration although they can pull a room together aesthetically. The main purpose of curtains is to provide privacy and block light from the outside.
Kids need their sleep. Even though children and teens sleep deeper than adults, it’s still difficult to get rest in a room bathed in light.
The VCNY Home Salma Solid Check Blackout Curtains not only block light but also reduce noise. As a bonus, they are energy efficient and will help keep your kid’s room cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
Accent pillows can be quite practical but they are also a great way to inject your child’s personality into a room.
A throw pillow featuring your child’s latest favorite color or cartoon character can make a space feel more personal.
The VCNY Home Smile Polka Dot Square Pillow sends a nice subtle message to your child to smile and be happy.
Lighting is important in a child’s room, especially when there is homework to be done. While a desk lamp is essential, bedside lamps should not be overlooked.
Don’t give your child Grandma’s discarded lamps. Let your kids pick out their own.
These days, there are inexpensive yet safe lamps in a variety of styles and colors. You can buy a horse lamp when your kid is in a pony phase or a rocket ship lamp for a kid who loves space. The possibilities are endless.
Even big kids occasionally need a “security blanket.” Throw blankets are another great way to add color and character to a room.
The VCNY Home Dublin Cable Knit Cotton Throw has the look and feel of a sweater, which makes it perfect for snuggling. Available in eight different colors, it’s the blanket your teen will take to college as a reminder of home.
How many times have you asked your kids, “Did you clean your room?” Better yet, how many times have you yelled, “Go clean your room!”
Kids and teens are more apt to clean their rooms if they have someplace to put their stuff.
When decorating a kid’s room, provide bins for their toys and a hamper for their clothes. Under-the-bed storage is perfect for items they only use occasionally. Trash cans are also essential for a tidy space.
When redecorating your kid’s room, allow your child to have input. It may be your house, but it’s their room.
