When it comes to your child’s room you can’t let space confine your creative abilities. Decorating a small space may seem to limit but the truth is there are many different ways to approach a small space without sacrificing its ideal appearance. If you’re struggling to find the right inspiration, you’ll be happy to discover these four fun ways to decorate your child’s small bedroom.
The most important step in decorating a small room is to get creative. Do whatever you need to do to get your creative juices flowing. Once you have it, you’re ready to optimize your space.
Think about the regular stuff, such as bed frames, desks, dressers, etc. Then, think about how you can reduce the amount of space they require. For bedding options, loft beds are great for reducing the amount of space a bed and desk require. If you have smaller children, that bottom loft space will be great to use as a mini-play area.
For clothing and optimal storage, think stowaway options. These can be hidden compartments under a bed frame or floating desks that can be folded away. If you don’t find your ideal item, go for a DIY project or custom furniture request. Let yourself get creative and you’ll find the most ideal solutions for your child’s small space.
Use Floating Shelves
If your kids love books, floating shelves provide the best solution. Use the most meaningful books as a carefully crafted and artsy book display.
Or you can use your floating shelf as a decorating display. When carefully styled, a floating shelf can serve as a focal point in your child’s room. You then have the freedom to create a display that can bring balance to the small space.
Mount Your Lighting
Floor and desk lamps can be a waste of space. The easy solution is to mount your lighting. When choosing this route, you’re able to give yourself so a variety of other options. For example, you can use a fun lighting solution by choosing glowing string lamps to place around the four corners of the room.
Or you can go for a carefully picked wall lamp. Include your child’s opinion and you’ll be sure to find the best-looking option for the room.
Use Your Walls
If you thought walls were only for family and milestone portraits, you’re surely mistaken. Give your children the freedom of creativity by hanging up variously sized photo frames. These frames should be glass-less and include a line of string going across horizontally.
When they have a drawing or project they’re proud of, give them a wooden clothespin to pinch their work on the line of string, and voilà, you have a wonderful art gallery. Helping your child build great self-esteem while optimizing your wall décor? Creative parenting for the win!
Don’t let your child’s space lose its potential. Instead, give it an amazing makeover by implementing these four ways to decorate your child’s small bedroom.
