How to get started

It’s time to sit down with the kids and merge your ideas to­gether be­fore you get going

Style at Home (UK) - - Reader Offer -

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.

Joint de­ci­sions

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…
