How to get started
It’s time to sit down with the kids and merge your ideas together before you get going
Akid’s bedroom is a space that suffers from quite a bit of wear and tear. Walls get scraped, furniture gets knocked and toys take over every single surface. And what’s more, children grow up so fast, they’ll soon grow out of that Winnie the Pooh wallpaper you chose for the nursery.
if this sounds all too familiar, then it’s time for an update – or even a complete overhaul to get the most out of the room.
it’s great to get the kids involved. ask them about their colour preferences, what kind of bedding they like and for any other ideas they may have to help guide you in creating the room of their dreams. You could even encourage them to design a mood board featuring all the accessories and schemes they like. But do remind them that you both need to agree on the final decisions. now go and have fun…
