Shawn’s advice – Kids Room Renovation Tips

» Posted by on Jan 31, 2012 | 2 comments

Kids room may not need dramatic changes if the children are small but as they grow the transition from kids to teens room is important. The room may need some new furniture and the kids may want a new look.

Kids grow and change rapidly and their room changes with them. But how to keep the kids room comfortable and stylish on budget? The transition from kids to teens room can be especially money and time consuming. But before splashing on the full renovation think what you can keep, re-use, and redecorate.

Furniture

The biggest investment is usually furniture because kids grow out of their beds and small desks. These can be sold though to make room and invest into new furniture. Side tables, consoles, and organizers that were used for storing toys however can be used to their purposes in the new room. If the room is small the built-in furniture can be an answer since it combines essential items as well as saves space in the room.

Color Scheme

The wall paint is the easy and fast solution since it can be changed fairly easily. On the other hand wallpaper can bring some depth to the room. Choose colors and patterns together with the room‘s inhabitant(s) to make their room inviting and comfortable.

Details

The main decorative details can include framed family photos and artworks. A rug can add warmth to the room while bookshelves will also fill the walls and provide storage space for books and school supplies.

Looking forward to your comments!

  1. Thanks for the tips – God knows we have all struggled when trying to converse with our teens about how they want their room to look – if only they would keep it tidy!

  2. Great tips Shawn! and also, we have to consider what they really want, after all it’s their personal space. I’d like to hear my kids’ ideas too, and I’ll try to work out something that both of us would really love.
