How To Upgrade Your Infant’s Bedroom In Less Than An Hour
It’s probably safe to say that children have pretty short attention spans, as one week they may be absolutely enthralled with a certain TV show or character, only for you to find that the very next week they’ve forgotten all about them and are obsessed with something new instead. For this reason, decorating your child’s bedroom can be difficult, as you aren’t going to be quite sure whether or not they will still have the same interests and passions in the near future.
Obviously you can’t upgrade and alter your child’s bedroom every time they feel like a change, but you may wish to upgrade and modify things on a fairly regular basis. We’re not talking about stripping off the wallpaper, ripping up the carpet, and redesigning their bedroom from scratch. Rather, we’re talking about making small changes that make a big difference. Here are some tips and suggestions on how to upgrade your infant’s bedroom in less than one hour.
Keep the Walls Neutral
If for example, your child was previously obsessed with a certain superhero, naturally you may expect to decorate the walls with superhero wall paper, or to paint it with murals depicting their favorite hero. If however, one day they decided that the superhero in question was old news, this would leave you with the task of stripping away the wallpaper, or repainting the walls. By keeping the walls neutral however, this needn’t be a problem as you can accessorize instead, which leads us to our next tip.
As mentioned, by keeping the walls neutral, you can then accessorize the room in other ways. For example, a framed poster of their favorite superhero on the wall will still look great, and when they did grow bored, taking a poster off of the wall is going to be much easier than redecorating the entire walls instead. New cribs, alarm clocks, mirrors, money banks, and action figures (check out Little Bamboo) can all be used to really set the theme and bring it to life. Also, new snuggle blankets can go a long way!
One of the best ways of upgrading your child’s bedroom based upon their own personal preferences and likes at the time, is to purchase new bedding. If for example, your child decided that they were now interested in, say, WWE wrestling, you could purchase some WWE wrestling bedding that would transform the room, and would go down an absolute treat with your child.
Although quite fiddly, changing the curtains or blinds in your child’s room is still going to be much easier than redecorating from scratch, and with new curtains, you can use them to compliment the new theme you are going with. If the room now features reds, whites, and blacks for example, you could go with curtains containing any and all of these colours, which would really help bring everything to life.
Add a New Rug
Adding a new rug is another great way of upgrading a bedroom without spending a great deal of time and money. Like the other suggestions, go with colors and themes that your child has requested at the time, and obviously, this is going to be far better than ripping the carpet up and laying a new one.
