How to style a kid’s room without it looking child-like



No one wants to spend time and money kitting out a bedroom full of unicorns when the next minute they’re obsessed with trucks and trains.

Finding the sweet spot where the space is changeable but still is a reflection of everything your kids love is easy if you know how. Start in neutral.

Balancing out the colours in the room – toys, books and clothes are all colours of the rainbow – becomes easier when your starting point is neutral.

You’ll find styling the room easier to manage when you’ve got a neutral background – and it’ll have more longevity if their favourite colour changes every week.

Use a pinboard

These are budget-friendly and allow your kids to express their personality in a creative way.

They’re also really easy to change around so your kids can redecorate as often as they like.

Furnish up!

Use budget-friendly shelves to create a platform for the kid’s evolving tastes and passions.

Whether their shelving is loaded with stuffed toys, video games or craft supplies, your kids’ possessions will have a home that’s not the floor.

Don’t overlook how useful these can be when you ask them to clean their rooms in a hurry. The room is less likely to get messy if everything has a place.

Build a reading oasis

Whether it’s a rug on the floor or a comfy chair where you can sit together, encouraging your child to read often will pay off in spades.
