It can give your child the possibility to get creative whilst also serving as a wall organizer for their homework or chores.

Instead of spending lots of money on expensive photo frames, opt for coloured and patterned washi tape to frame your photos. It gives a pretty border to your photos whilst acting as a beautiful wall design, which your child will love.

Let your kids get involved by getting them to cover the wall photos of there friends. Decorating one of their walls with their own photos gives a personal touch to their bedroom whilst also giving them something they can be proud of. This is a great way to allow your children to actively decide how they want their room to look, whilst also saving you money.

4. Accessorise those curtains

Plain curtains don't have to be boring, and you don't need to fork out on a new pair to make them more fun. You can use pom-poms or patterned material to create a border for your child's curtains. This creates the illusion of new, fresh curtains whilst adding more colour and originality to your child's bedroom.

5. Brighten the room with hanging lights

A good way of refreshing your child's room is by storing toys in a clever way. Wall storage is a handy way of creating clutter free floors whilst adding decoration to the walls. By storing books and other bits and boys in wall storage, your child will have plenty of room to play and it also means there are no excuses for an untidy bedroom!

7. Embrace the use of paper pom-poms

Paper pom-poms aren't just for parties, strung together in clusters these balls of coloured paper are perfect for creating an interesting feature on your child's ceiling. You can make them for scratch with some cardboard recused from old cereal boxes and sheets of tissue paper, or you can buy them (we won't judge). This is a simple update that will transform a bedroom in an afternoon.

8. Put your old furniture to good use

If you still have an old dresser, this can be transformed into a handy desk or craft table. With a fresh coat of paint, your old dresser is turned into a new study/craft area and gives your child a place to be imaginative or study.
