The floor

The floor in your kids room gets a lot of traffic and puts up with a lot! So, it’s unsurprising that it can look tired and grubby sooner than you anticipated. You could stick to something familiar and comforting and go with a new, hard wearing carpet. Or try something new and easier to clean and opt for laminate. Whatever you decide, your choice needs to be tough, durable and ready for anything your kids can throw at it! If you need a little more flooring inspiration, click here.

Their own art gallery

Kids love to draw, paint and colour. So much so it can be difficult to know where to put all those endless pieces of paper that they bring home from school and nursery – not to mention the masterpieces they create at home. Now is the time to put all their artwork on display and create a gallery wall that’s filled with their favourite pieces.

These could be simply stuck to the wall with a removable adhesive or hung from string from wall to wall. This will add a pop of colour and make their room a little more personal to them. It’s better than stuffing all that paper in a draw!

Cubes

Thinking of some more up to date storage ideas? Forget those endless stacks of plastic boxes. Why not opt for a wall of storage cubes instead? These are ideal for displaying their favourite cool or pretty objects, as well as somewhere to keep those toys and books.

Wall stickers

These cheap but effective wall design is becoming quite a popular choice over painting or wallpapering. If you rent a property, this might be the best way to make the room feel more personal to your little one. If there’s a bare chimney breast or a vacant wall, then you’ve got the perfect canvas.

Step up your accessories game

If the bedroom is a little plain, but painting and decorating isn’t your thing, then don’t worry. All you need is a colour scheme and a little imagination to bring the room to life. Think multicoloured bunting to bring a pop of colour and fun into the room, or a bright patchwork quilt. Those knobs on the dresser and wardrobe? Swap them for multicoloured, funky designs instead! Or go for something simple and add a beautiful rug into the room.
