Kids spend a lot of time in their bedroom sleeping and playing so when it comes to styling their room you want to make sure that it is functional, fun and stylish without breaking the bank.
From fundamental furniture to storage and decorating, Mocka provide their top tips to create a cool kids bedroom for less.
Step 1 - Fundamental Furniture
When choosing these pieces, remember to think about the future of this space to ensure that these pieces can grow with your child.
You don’t always have to stick with using furniture for its intended purpose. Instead, get creative and look at different ways that you can style furniture in the space.
Small ottomans and footstools look great styled as side tables. They can also be used as a stool or footrest as your child grows.
When choosing a desk opt for one with clean lines and neutral colours to avoid having to update when your child reaches high school.
A desk with drawers is best for kid’s bedrooms as it helps to keep books and pieces of paper off the desktop and out of sight.
Step 2 - Storage
Storage is a must in any child’s bedroom and you can never have too much. Versatile storage doesn’t have to be boring. It can help to keep your child’s bedroom neat and tidy while making a statement.
When adding additional storage to your child’s bedroom think high and low to make use of the entire space.
Floating shelves and shadow boxes look great installed at higher levels on the walls of your kid’s bedroom.
They are perfect for keeping precious items safe and out of reach while adding a decorative element to the space.
Low lying storage is great for keeping toys at bay and within reach. Try using a toy box as a bed end. You can customise the look of a plain toy box by placing some fun pillows on top or sticking decals on it.
Step 3 - Decorating
Decorating doesn’t have to cost the earth. You can really make an impact to the space with a splash of paint or by using wall decals.
Children have many beautiful toys and they love to show them off to their friends. Instead of storing away all of their toys, choose a few of their decorative toys to use to enhance a plain bookshelf or bedside table.
Small items like buntings, fun bedside lamps and cushions are affordable pieces that can really accentuate the style of your child’s bedroom. They are also easy to replace as your child grows.
When styling your kids bedroom set a budget and stick to it. Get creative, think outside the box and use these tips to create an affordable kids bedroom that your child will adore.
