1. Paint Walls

Painting is, indubitably, an all-time-tried-and-tested method to bring about a dramatic change to any room. ‘Pinks’ and ‘blues’ make for obvious choices but slight playing around with pastels, neutrals, brights or contrast will do the required magic. Preferably opt for wall paints with a satin finish to avoid smudges.

2. Go for Wall Art with Posters & Decals

You can always use fabric wall stickers to sprinkle that creative touch to your walls. Not only can you purchase these from a number of online stores but you have the liberty of changing the styles to your little one’s choice and that too without damaging the walls.

3. Choose a Bedroom Theme

Having themes set for your child’s bedroom is a great idea but do keep in mind that with time your little ones will grow up and therefore be wise before going overboard with theme selection.

4. Blend Modern with Traditional

Do not waste money in purchasing furniture and accessories that match. Instead, try pairing out beds with unmatched lampshades or complement a couch with contrasting chairs. Blend in traditional with contemporary items and fabrics.

10. Refurbish Old Furniture

If your new wall color does not go with the old layout, then do not invest in new furnishings, but add a dash of color to the old, and they would be as good as new.
