How to Liven Up Your Child’s Bedroom
August 30, 2017
Moving can be stressful for children, especially if you’re relocating to a new city. As you search for homes in Columbus GA to buy, you might want to put some thought into how you’re going to decorate your child’s bedroom. If your son or daughter is old enough to offer opinions about what they’d like to see in their bedroom, enlist them in the design process so they will feel more comfortable about the transition.
Here are a few décor ideas to spark your family’s imagination:
Wall Color – Choosing what color to paint your child’s bedroom can be overwhelming. A good rule of thumb is to go for a soothing wall color, such as lavender, to help your child relax at the end of the day, so bedtime will be easy to manage.
Wall Art Options – There are countless ways to adorn the walls of your child’s room. One way to show off your child’s masterpieces is to hang a wire from wall to wall and either drape the art works over the wire, or attach them to the wire with clips or clothespins.
You can also place your child’s art work into clear acrylic frames to hang on the wall. This technique allows you to update the look when new pieces are created.
If you have a favorite photo of your child, you can take it to an office supply store and get it enlarged to a standard frame height. Then, cut the photo into even sections and frame each piece to display on the wall.
Storage Options – Keeping your children’s toys, games and books in check is always a good goal. And there are an infinite number of ways to organize depending on your style and budget. Clear plastic storage bins or stock cubbies are one option. You can even find step stools with a hidden compartment. Or you can go the DIY route and repurpose containers you have on hand, like large potato chip cans. Just stick a label on the can, and you’re good to go!
Creative Furniture – Liven up your child’s room by getting creative with some of the furniture. Transform an ordinary dresser into a kitschy work of art by adding colorful ribbon remnants to the drawer handles. Or turn a kitchen stool into a whimsical nightstand by wrapping a tutu around the edge and securing it with double-sided tape.
Once the design work is finished, your family can start enjoying the benefits of living in Columbus, such as whitewater rafting down the Chattahoochee River, geeking out on science at the Coca-Cola Space Science Center or enjoying a live concert at Uptown Columbus.
