5 simple ways to spruce up your child’s room on a budget

It is a fact that children spend way more time in their bedrooms than we do. Not only do they of course sleep more than us ( we hope!) but they will most like play in their room, have friends over, study in there and generally hang out there to read and relax. It is their little space away from the family, a place where they can have some privacy, and probably the space in which they keep most of their belongings.

It is important children really like their bedrooms and that the space works really well for them. Is your child’s room in need of a makeover but the thought of the cost puts you off? It doesn’t need to, as you can achieve a lot without spending very much. Here are 5 simple ways you can spruce up their bedroom on a budget.

 

The bed

Make sure their bed is right for their room. If their room is on the small side do consider investing in a high sleeper bed so they have space underneath to play or perhaps to put a desk. This will also mean they can have friends to come and sleep over as a camp bed can be put up underneath. Additional space is a big plus for any room but especially for a child’s bedroom where they may want to set up a train track or craft project.

Declutter

Children often collect things like cards and magazines, little toys and cuddly toys and their collections can just grow and grow. A good declutter can be very beneficial at making a room look bigger and fresher, cleaner, and brighter.  A declutter may mean that items are stored in the loft or packed off to younger cousins or the charity shop. Space to play and a room filled with only things they use and love will make a bedroom a much more pleasant place to be. And best of all – decluttering costs nothing!

 

Paint

A fresh coat of paint always makes a room look better and it’s a relatively quick and inexpensive job that really brightens up a room.

 

New bedspread

Bedspreads are one way of completely going with your child’s favourite colour, character or interest without having to do anything permanent to their room and without having to spend too much! It will give their room a lift and most definitely make them smile too.

 

Photos

Children love photos of special days, family members, them with their friends, favourite pets and so on. Making them a collage of photos in display pockets is a lovely idea. Ones that can be replaced and updated are the best as this will keep things fresh.

 

I hope these top tips leave you feeling inspired to spruce up your child’s room on a budget – it just takes a little effort, a little creativity and the right bed.
