Get inspired with these cute and clever decorating ideas for your little one’s space.
Decorating your kid’s bedroom can be quite a task, especially if they are constantly going back and forth on their favorite theme. You want a space that will be long-lasting — not something you’ll have to redo a year or two later.
With minimal effort, you can create a space that will grow with your child. Looking for some inspiration? Browse through these decorating ideas that you can easily tackle yourself.
Drawings Turned Into Wall Art
Instead of buying wall art, consider turning your child’s art into framed pieces for their bedroom. Simply buy similar frames in various sizes to create a unique gallery wall that you’ll be proud to show off to friends and family. You can also forego the frames and use a local photo printing shop to turn the artwork into individual canvases.
Easy, Geometric Design
Small black triangles add a bit of contrast to crisp white walls. Achieve this look with a stencil or if you want a less permanent option, use wall decals. Toy storage doesn’t have to be boring, either. Your child’s collection of toys can double as decor on a wall of floating shelves.
DIY T-Shirt Headboard
Don’t get rid of those old T-shirts that your child has outgrown, but still loves. Repurpose those favorite shirts into a headboard that shows off their personality. Or make them into DIY pillows.
Your dainty dancer deserves a space as precious as she is. Custom graphic wall art inspired the delicate look of this little girl’s room, with a place to hang her ballet outfit and shoes. Choosing a monochromatic color scheme with subtle accent colors allows for versatility as your little one gets older.
Skateboards as Artwork
Incorporate your tween’s favorite hobby into their room design. A row of skateboards above the headboard adds fun dimension and pattern to this boy’s bedroom. Or create a cool skateboard clock. See the project here.
Coral + Turquoise
When choosing a nursery design, consider a chic and timeless color palette that will grow with your child. Coral and turquoise paired with shimmery gold accents make a great choice for a little girl’s room. Monogrammed wall art is a cute and classic addition that will last long after the baby stage, too.
Make reading a fun activity that your child looks forward to and give them a cozy spot to enjoy their books. Designate a reading corner, construct a teepee and provide plush cushions and their favorite stuffed animals.
For your car-loving tween, frame sports car posters and hang them above the headboard and around the room. Keep the walls, furnishings and bedding neutral in case the car fad dies out. Wall art can be easily replaced to change the theme.
Multicolor Washi Tape
Use multiple colors of washi tape to create a fun, chevron-inspired design as an accent wall in your kid’s room. It’s a less permanent way to add color and pattern to the space.
Wild for Watermelon
Hot pink is a bold color choice for decorating, but mixing in a softer shade such as mint green helps tone down the brightness. Here, a watermelon throw pillow inspired the color palette for a little girl’s bedroom. To continue the theme, watermelon decals embellish the plain white walls.
Does your child love to draw? Let their imagination soar by painting their walls with chalkboard paint. The vast canvas allows them to show their creativity and change their artwork at any time, too.
Don’t be afraid to mix patterns. A colorful accent wall with a butterfly print meshes perfectly with the bedding in this eclectic bedroom. Our advice? Stick to a similar color palette and don’t overdo it. If all the walls were covered with the butterfly wallpaper, the design would simply appear too visually busy.
There’s something so refreshing about a coastal bedroom, and it’s not going out of style anytime soon. This is a perfect look for your family beach house. Search thrift stores and local home decor stores to find nautical themed accessories to complete the look.
These custom animal prints are free to download and are offered in four templates — fox, bunny, deer and owl. Let your little artist color the pages in with their colored pencils. Finish by matting and framing each picture in sleek, black frames for a more polished look.
