Rather than bedtime being an occasion for tears and tantrums, you could turn it into something really special by decorating your youngsters’ rooms.
Whether they love the latest cartoons on TV or they’re fans of planets and the solar system, you’ll be able to find a great design for their room which will look fantastic and is bound to appeal greatly to them.
Firstly, you’ll need to think about the theme you want the children’s bedroom to be. Will you be choosing matching bedroom furniture to go with the genre as well? For example, if you little one dreams of being an astronaut, you could make sure everything in the room is space inspired, with aliens painted on the drawers and a spaceship-style bed.
If your child really loves school and learning, you could make their room educational, at the same time as making it fun. Perhaps look to create a world map on the wall that they can draw on and decorate as time goes on and put old-style educational toys, such as an abacus, in the space.
Anyone who’s trying to create a girlie bedroom, which isn’t too gender specific in terms of colours, could choose the right beds and accessories to create the look they want. White could be used as the base colour for the room, which could be complemented with some colourful bunting and patterned wallpaper on a feature wall. Bed covers could be floral and girlie too, so it’s clear who the bedroom is for, but it’s not too over the top.
You could add some colourful prints to the walls of any white-coloured space to make sure it has a splash of colour in it and this idea could also be applied to a children’s bedroom. Find out all of your little one’s favourite things so you can use that as inspiration for their room.
If they love their bedroom, they’re bound to want to spend even more time in it, so you shouldn’t have any more problems getting them off to sleep at night.
