It’s hard to please kids, wouldn’t you agree? If your kid just turned 2, then you are probably coming with clever and cute ideas for decorating his/her room.
Ask your kid only once about their favorite theme. We repeat: ONLY ONCE. No idea will last more than 5 minutes in their mind and if you keep asking them, you will get a different answer every time.
The key to decorating the kid’s room is choosing a theme that will last longer, say more than 2 years. Let’s assume that your son is into Lion King.
He wants a wild desert and forest theme with tropical colors. Trust us when we say this that after three years, he will be fixated on Lightning McQueen and you will be tearing down the old wallpapers.
Following are six DIY décor ideas for kids’ room that we are sure you will love:
1. The Wall of Art
Is your kid a Picasso in the making? Well then don’t keep storing his drawings in a box. Pick out the best ones and get them framed. You can even go to a printing shop and get them scanned and edited for a sharper and better look.
Cover one wall completely with their art and stencil abstract design or elements and characters from their favorite cartoon in between the spaces. Place a 3-story shelf against this wall and place their fairytale books collection here. You can even adorn the shelves with stuffed bears, family photo frames and figurines.
To allow this wall to become the center of attention, keep the rest of the room décor simple. Keeping in mind the art, a great way to make the place bright is to use different colors.
Keep the hardwood floor as it is and place a huge rug over it. Paint the walls a light peach color and for the curtains, bed linens and the bench cushions, go with different shades of pistachio color.
2. Reading Nook
If you have already decorated your kid’s room with the essentials such as wallpaper, curtains, rugs and wall décor, then we have something special for you that will add that extra touch to the room.
From a young age, we teach our kids to spell out words and show them children’s books. That is how they become interested in reading. So why not create a reading nook?
Creating a reading nook is pretty simple. Here’s what we suggest: pitch up a tent that has enough space for one and then place a floor cushion and throw pillow inside it.
Place this tent near the corner of the room. Stand guard two fluffy animals beside the tent and place a yarn bucket beside the tent.
Position the bookshelf beside the tent, against the wall so that the books are within reach and place two of your kid’s favorite books in the bucket. For a magical look, wrap some fairy lights at the top of the tent and the look is complete.
3. Multicolor Washi Tape
If you are on a budget, then this is one of the best cheap décor ideas that you should go for. You can get 48 Washi tape rolls for just $11.80 from Amazon and these are the fancy ones.
If you are looking for plain colored Washi tapes, then you can get 5 rolls for $2.49. They are even decorative Washi tapes made with lace, which cost $2.51 for 10 rolls.
Struck by inspiration yet? Get a bunch of these Washi tapes in different designs and colors and then create your own art.
You can go with parallel lines on the walls or diamond shapes. There are just too many ideas and the good thing is that you can change the design according to season and upcoming events.
4. Wild for Watermelon
Watermelon colors are too refreshing to pass up. This theme is pretty simple: find any decoration piece that has red and green colors.
Stencil watermelon on white-washed walls, adorn the bed with red-colored linens that have black seed-like dots and green pillows, place green lamps on the bedside tables and position watermelon shaped cushions on the window seat. Can you picture it?
5. Stylish Storage
Stylish storage allows you to declutter the room and make it look more organized. DIY and bedazzle baskets and attach name stickers on them. Now place stuff in them such as books, toys, art items and more.
For this, you will need a big shelf, where you can place all the baskets. Perhaps, this is one of the best and easiest DIY décor ideas for kids’ rooms you will have no trouble accomplishing.
6. It’s All Animals
Have some old animal plushies lying around the house? Get out your sewing kit because we are about to give you a great idea for your kid’s room décor.
Get a couple of rugs (the soft kind) and sew these animal plushies on them. You will have to do a bit of work as in removing the cotton from the plushies, flattening out the cloth and then attaching it to the rug.
Sew in the hands and feet with dark-colored threads and voilà, your animal rug is ready. Make a couple of rugs like these and place them in the room. You can even go with a theme such as Curious George or Courage the Cowardly. Lastly, buy animal printed bed sheets and pillows in the shapes of animals.
