4 ways with... KIDS’ SPACES
Take inspiration from these bright ideas for making children’s bedrooms and play areas cheerful, distinctive and organised 1
There are many ways to decorate a child’s room so it becomes a place to enjoy being in – and there’s no need to bust the budget.
A soothing wall colour, like this soft pink, will ease a child into sleep. Cheery prints keep it fresh, or add florals for a more nostalgic feel. Second-hand, hard-wearing wooden furniture can be changed up with paint or new hardware. The wall hanging is a simple sewing project using fabric remnants.
units with multiple compartments are brilliant for organisation and can be used for different types of items as needs change. Label low cupboards to encourage kids to find the right place for their things and use the top, out-of-reach ones for less-used items, like out-grown toys.
wallpaper may feel like a risky choice but a design with multiple colours can lend itself to a range of decor options. Repainting this table and changing the linen and cushion would create a new look with minimal cost.
Create wall art using fabric and double-sided heat bond, or spray or liquid starch for an easily removed design. Look online for tutorials and home-made starch recipes.
