decorating your childrens bedroomDeciding on the best room decor for your child has proven to be a daunting task for many families. There are so many options available on the market, it is easy for parents and children to become overwhelmed and instead of creating a well styled room, they create a cluttered space with contradictory themes or patterns. Prior to beginning the process it is important to have a well-organized plan in place which includes setting aside the necessary time to some preliminary research as well as to solicit from the child their interests in room decor.

Where To Start

If your child doesn’t like the way his or her room is decorated, then there’s a pretty good chance that they won’t enjoy sleeping or spending any time in their room. Try to take your child’s interest into perspective and think about what it is that they might like for their room. It is important to identify a theme for the kids room and centre the kids room decor around this theme.

Usually for younger boys, typical themes of interest are those that relate to a super Heros, sports teams or hobby such as trains or airplanes. For young girls, a themed room related to Disney Princesses, nature characters or pastel or contrasting colours seems to be a yearly favourite. It’s all about choosing the right theme and continuing from there.

Wall Art

Wall decor such as wall letters, wall art or even wall decals are a great addition to any child’s room. They can help to personalize the space and add character to the room. When you’re choosing which types of wall decor to buy, keep in mind the overall design and themes including the colour palette and style. Keep your kid’s interest in mind, so that you choose options you know that your child will like.


Choosing the accent furniture such as bookcases, wall shelving, mirrors and so forth next add to the decor and give the room added personality and completeness. While these types of furniture are not necessary, their functional qualities add purpose to your child’s room and have the added benefit of aiding to the rooms decor. Many styles of decorative accent furniture include unique colours, intricate workmanship and even personalization.

Finishing Touches

Now that you have the wall decor and the accent furniture the room is ready for the final touches that speak to your child’s personality and takes the space from a decorated room to your child’s own personal haven. Be creative and daring and add colourful or unique decorative pillows, theme oriented floor rugs and interesting lighting options. Many choices on the market are designed to grow with your child and include whimsical and fun designs that your child will fall in love with.
