When it comes to decorating a child’s bedroom, it’s easy to go with a theme that they are currently obsessed with like princesses, animals, cars, or super heroes. However, kids go through phases of what they’re into and what they like faster than you’d think.
Decorating a bedroom based off of their current interests could lead to them outgrowing it rather quickly. The last thing you want to do is redecorate their bedroom every year. The key to decorating a bedroom that your child won’t outgrow quickly is versatile décor.
Here’s how to design a bedroom your child won’t quickly outgrow:
- Avoid patterned or themed bedding. Bedspreads with stripes, polka dots, or Mickey Mouse could get old really quickly in your child’s eyes. Choose solid colored bedding that can be revamped when the time comes. It’s a lot easier (and cheaper) to buy new decorative pillows to give the room a new look than purchasing new bedding.
- Painting the walls can be a tedious task. If you choose a color that isn’t too loud (no lime green or bright pink), then you probably won’t need to repaint the walls when redecorating. Neutral wall colors work with a lot of décor and don’t go out of style.
- Furniture is a staple in any bedroom. When purchasing your child’s bed, think of what will last them the longest. In other words, purchase a bed they can grow into and grow up with. Kids grow up so fast; don’t make the mistake of buying a bed that’ll be too small in only a couple of years!
Save yourself some time by thinking of what will last in your child’s bedroom the longest when designing the space. Investing a little more money into furniture/décor your child won’t quickly outgrow is worth it!
