Have your children been good recently? Perhaps they’ve been good with their studies, perhaps they’ve been picking up healthy habits, or maybe they’re just on their best behaviour. Whatever they’ve done to deserve some praise, nothing lets them know you love them than an upgrade to their bedroom.
Surprisingly, a few simple bedroom improvements can make your children feel on top of the world. Whether it’s something like getting a new bed to make them more comfortable at night or replacing the curtains to let in more light, your children love to see changes in their bedrooms—at least, when it’s a positive change. If you want to improve your child’s bedroom, then here are a couple of considerations to keep in mind and a few tips on how you can pull it off.
Change decor to match new interests
Perhaps your child’s bedroom is lined with designs and pictures of a cartoon they used to watch. Sadly, children grow fast and it won’t be long until they’ve outgrown those old cartoons and want something new. To give their bedroom a facelift, why not replace that old decor with characters and designs from something new they enjoy? Be it The Avengers from Marvel or the latest Disney characters, replace that old worn-out wallpaper, get some new figurines and decor and give the bedroom a makeover in the style of their new interests.
Increase their comfort
If your children spend a lot of time in their room studying, playing on the computer or simply just sleeping, then find ways to increase their comforts. For instance, if the bed you bought for them is fairly old or cheap, then consider replacing it alongside the bed linen and mattress. Websites like Cuckooland.com are perfect examples of places to get unique bedroom furniture and accessories that are targeted towards children. If they work at the computer or study, then consider replacing their chair with something comfortable and sturdy. If the weather is getting hot, then install a ceiling fan to keep them cool.
Welcoming their friends
When your child invites friends over, they’re probably going to be spending a lot of time in their room playing games, studying or watching television. Turn your child’s bedroom into the ultimate playroom when guests arrive by having lots of fun furniture to sit on like bean bags, video games, a television, and perhaps even a drinks cooler so that you don’t have to knock on the door every few minutes asking if they want a snack. If you want to buy a bean bag seat, then consider looking at this thread on the Mumsnet.com forum for some advice.
Storage space for collections
Most children love to collect things. Be it comic books, figurines, trading cards or video games, give your child some space to show off their collections and store all of their favourites. Shelves are fantastic for this, but if you want something a little fancier, a glass display shelf could be an excellent alternative for toys or figures that your child loves. However, if they prefer to play with the toys as well, then a simple storage chest will do nicely and it helps to keep the clutter away.
