From time to time, you probably redecorate and rearrange the furniture in certain rooms in your home just because you’re a little bored with the décor. Well, children get bored with their décor as well. While you won’t want to spend a fortune redecorating your child’s bedroom, there are a few easy and affordable ways to redecorate your child’s bedroom to make it more fun for them to spend time in.

1. Paint

Paint is probably the simplest way to make a big impact in your child’s room without spending very much money at all. Many parents choose blue for boys and pink or purple for girls when it comes to wall color. However, that color scheme gets a little old, even for kids. Try painting your child’s room a bright, vibrant color like yellow, green or even red. Ask your child what color they would like their room to be and try to find a color that works with the furniture you already have in the room.

2. Shelving

Shelving is a very simple way to clear the clutter from your child’s room and make a visual impact. Look for shelving that is lightweight, bright in color and the right height for your child to access. You can organize cube shelving units with decorative storage boxes made to fit the unit.

3. Change the Bedding

You’re not going to invest in fine linens for your child, but that doesn’t mean you can’t swap out blankets and bedspreads for different ones. That superhero blanket your child loved last year might not be that interesting to them now. There are all kinds of blankets on the market for kids. For something classic that your child can use for years, look for bold, colorful abstract shapes or animal prints like little giraffe blankets.

4. Give Your Child Some Display Space

Children have a tendency to collect things, whether it’s stubs from movies or clippings from magazines. You can incorporate these collections into your child’s room by adding a corkboard or magnet board, which will add a lot of visual interest to the room for your child. You can also use sheets of galvanized metal from a hardware store as a magnet board.

5. Add Lighting

Lighting might not be the most fun addition to a bedroom for a child, but good lighting in a child’s room is essential. Overhead lights are necessary for general safety, but adding lamps can help a child do their homework or play at night without bright overhead lights that could keep them from falling asleep when it’s time for bed. Make sure your child’s room has a lamp by the bed and one near the door so they can find the bathroom at night if they need to.
