If you're stuck for ideas when it comes to decorating your child's room, choose a theme and the rest should fall into place. Whether it's an underwater or space exploration theme, you'll be able to mix and match different design features accordingly. Here's how to create the perfect themed children's bedroom.
1. Wall decals and canvas art
Wall art is a great way to introduce design elements into your child's bedroom that reflect the theme you are trying to incorporate. Wall decals, in particular, allow you to transform bland wall spaces quickly and cheaply and you only need a few materials to get started. If you want to create a pirate theme in the bedroom, how about a ship decal that covers the entire wall? Or fairy-shaped wall decal stickers if you are going for an enchanted or magical theme? The possibilities are endless! If you're not quite confident enough to do this sort of thing yourself then you might need a painter who has experience doing this sort of work.
2. Choose the right theme
Children can quickly outgrow themes so you'll want to choose something that will keep your little ones entertained for several years. One way to do this to go through interior design magazines with your children and decide which themes they like best. Brainstorm different ideas as a family and see what works best. You might even want to base a theme on a TV show or movie franchise. Some of the most popular themes include space exploration, air travel, animals, prince and princesses, and cowboy and cowgirl.
3. Pick a duvet set and curtains
Once you have chosen a theme, it's time to accessorise the bedroom, focusing on furniture and fixtures. Choosing the right duvet is a fantastic way to incorporate a theme and there are plenty of design styles to choose from. You can also select curtains that reflect your theme and other decorative items like cushions, throws and ornaments. Oversized floor pillows and framed photos can also be used to create a warm, welcoming interior space that your child will love.
