Kids' tastes will change as they grow. Choose decor that's just as easy to change. Do your kids share a room? Give each child a voice in the new decor plan.
Toy storage is important in kids' rooms. Low shelves are easier to reach at playtime and cleanup time. Keep order with different containers for different kinds of toys and label each one with a picture. Less toys also means less clutter, with more room to play.
Paint colors will carry through on your theme. Do include your child's favorite color. Paint is easy to change later, and color can definitely revamp the entire mood of any room.
Accessories will carry through your theme too. Select easy-to-clean textiles for rugs, pillows, bedding, and curtains. Avoid pale solids that will show the dirt. Prints are fun and hide a lot!
Wall stickers are unbreakable–plus they don't need washing or dusting. Simple to apply and remove, they come in a large array of shapes, colors, and themes. What an easy way to create a fun space!
