4 kids bedroom updates that require minimal effort
It’s summer, which means that many of us don’t really fancy spending the time we have with our families painting walls, sifting through piles of broken toys or trying to construct furniture. However, many of us don’t have much choice, as the longer days and cool nights are the only time we get to complete the tasks and finish the projects we’ve been putting off so far this year.
Kids grow out of their bedrooms quickly, whether they’ve fallen out of love with a particular cartoon character or simply have a new favourite colour, your kids room will go through many changes before they’re all grown up! So, with that in mind, here you’ll find some quick and easy kids bedroom updates that not only require minimal effort but won’t break the bank either.
Flooring solutions like these, are the perfect pick me up for tired old bedrooms that desperately need a lift. This is a pretty big change, that looks fantastic and you wouldn’t even break a sweat as the professionals would do it all for you. If a whole new floor isn’t in your budget right now, or you’re simply happy with what you already have, then why not brighten up the floor with a rug? Brightly coloured, stripy, spotty, dotty, fluffy or furry and in any colour you can think of; a rug will give your little one’s room a fresh new look, with minimal effort – and cost!
We all know how great fresh bedding looks in our own bedrooms, so why not treat the kids too? A fresh duvet set is an instant lift in any dull, boring room. It’ll perfectly set off the bedrooms theme, if it has one. And it’s a non-permanent solution too. So if your child suddenly hates dinosaurs or fairy princesses in six months’ time, you can let them choose something else.
You could go a step further and add a touch of comfort and luxury to their rooms with extra cushions, pillows, throws and blankets. They make great accessories and add cosiness and warmth too.
That old chest of drawers seen better days? The beside cabinets that are covered in stickers and crayons? Don’t throw them away just yet. Have you considered upcycling them first? It’s easy! You choose the colour scheme with your little one, and then give the furniture a good wash and sand down, then simply paint it and finish it with varnish. If you want, you can even change the handles and knobs into something a little quirkier and unique. If you’re a little nervous then check out some tutorials online or on YouTube before you begin. It’s a great project to complete with the kids too.
Works of art
Do you have a mini Picasso on your hands? Our kids are always coming home with pages and pages of paintings and drawings from nursery or school. So instead of hiding them away, make a gallery wall showcasing their finest pieces. You can frame them, or hang them with pegs along some string!
