1. Blackboard paint

Giving a room a fresh lick of paint is a great way to redecorate without spending a fortune. Using blackboard paint as a feature wall is a great way to make your child’s bedroom both fun and practical. It can give your child the possibility to get creative whilst also serving as a wall organizer for their homework or chores.

2. Frame pictures with washi tape

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.

3. Create a picture wall

Let your kids get involved by getting them to draw pictures and designs. Decorating one of their walls with their own creations 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

Hanging fairy lights and accessories can really bring the room to life. It adds more light and colour without having to re-wallpaper or redecorate, this is both much cheaper and enjoyable for your kids to look at, especially at night.

6. Get rid of the clutter

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 arts and crafts or stuffed animals 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 pom-poms

Pom-poms are an enjoyable craft, which can be used to create a variety of different room accessories. They are great if you don’t want to spend lots of money on a new rug as they allow you to make your own. This can be a joint activity with you and your children, allowing family time and creating an end result of a brand new rug for their room.

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.
