Whether you are designing a room for an infant or a young child, you’ll find that things go much more quickly if you stick with a theme. A theme may be something that is as general as a certain color, or you might find that your child is entirely in love with the look of a certain book or movie.
If you want to create a themed bedroom for your child, you’ll find that it is far easier than you might think. Take a few moments to check out these hints for creating a fun and creative
theme for your child’s room. This task is one that can give your child years of delight!
Many parents find that they would love to add some designs to their child’s themed room, but they might not be sure how to do so. If you are looking to decorate the borders of your child’s room, you’ll find that you can easily do it with a small amount of paint and some stencils. This is a great choice if you want to add a vibrant pop of color to your child’s room. For a natural look, use green paint and leaf stencils. For a fairytale look, choose paints of all varieties and star and comet stencils.
Consider a Mural
Use resources like theroomplace.com to purchase matched furniture for your child’s room. If your child
loves fantasy and fairy tales, choose a bed and mirror combination that has delightfully fanciful scrolling. If your child wants a theme that is more rough and ready, choose furniture that is made of finished plain wood. Good children’s furniture will last for years, and you will be surprised how easily it can be dressed up or down depending on the theme. If you choose the right furniture, you will find that it will convert very easily to standard bedroom furniture in the years to come.
Paint the Walls
If you want something a little plainer than murals or stencils, consider simply painting the walls. For example, if you have a child that loves pretending to be a princess, consider painting the walls a soft pink. For a child who adores boats, ships and pirates, think about choosing a soft shade
