When finances are a challenge, it can feel impossible to freshen up your children’s room without spending a fortune. However, we have put together a great blog which contains 6 low-cost ways to decorate your children’s room…
Use Your Kid’s Artwork
Buying canvases and prints are a great way to brighten up a bedroom, but they can often be quite expensive. Instead, why not use artwork from your very own artist (your children) to brighten up their room?
Buying a frame is a lot more affordable than a professional canvas, and not only will it add colour to the room, but your children will also be super proud to see their designs on the wall.
Add a Little Paint to Old Furniture
As your children grow up, their tastes will change, but you don’t always need to trade in their old furniture and buy new. Instead, perhaps a lick of paint can add a new colour and style to those drawers or desk and save you a small fortune.
If a child’s room is looking a little on the bland side, consider heading down to your local charity shop, or bargain supermarket, to pick up a few standout accessories.
Stylish accessories don’t have to cost a lot. The high street shops have become very good at replicating higher-end brands at low prices, with the likes of Aldi or Lidl for example.
Alternatively, at a local charity shop you might find a hidden gem.
Get Crafty with Crafts
A great way to freshen up a room is to string up lovely bunting – a great thing to make on a tight budget – which makes for a pretty decorative finish.
Bunting is a fun way to add a unique touch to your child’s room. It’s cute, playful, and can be made with different fabrics and patterns to suit any occasion.
Also, this is fantastic way you can get your child involved in the crafting process and can double up as a fun activity to do together without breaking the bank.
Display Toys and Collections
Kids’ toys are very important to them – even after they stop playing with them daily. That’s when you can create a display that honours their objects’ importance, elevating stuffed animals and toys in a dedicated but tidy out-of-reach space.
This could be a good way to use the colourful objects, and varied textures to brighten up rooms, rather than leaving them stuffed in a storage box under the bed.
Wall Stickers at the Ready
Wall sticker art is one of the most popular ways (and one of the easiest ways) to decorate a child’s room. They are easy to find in your local DIY store, or online and these can highlight your kid’s favourite animals, or hobbies.
Designs can be simplistic or really elaborate and, best of all, they’re removable so you can take them down entirely or replace them.
