Our kids’ bedrooms are more than just a place for them to sleep. There are places of adventure, where toys come to life in their games, and where dreams are made. So how can you make your kids’ rooms more fun?
Create a fun bed
Beds don’t have to be just for sleeping. Ideally, you want them to sleep in their bed, but you can make it fun too. Having a bed that doubles as a den with a canopy and fun sheets can make getting into bed an exciting experience. Cabin beds, bunk beds, there is a huge variety to choose from. And who doesn’t want a kid who is excited to get into their bed? Just remember to choose something age appropriate for your little ones.
Have a Theme
As much fun as it might be to cram their room with their favourite things, it can become disjointed and look messy despite being clean. Having a theme for the room can make the room appear bigger and tidier. If you choose a basic theme, such as tractors or princesses, you can easily work other items around it rather than something brand specific. If you do choose to be brand specific, you might find yourself tied into a theme long after they have grown out of it.
Kids need good lighting in their rooms to help with their adventures. But, kids can also be afraid of the dark. Finding a good balance between the light and the dark can be a tough one. And bedtimes can be difficult if they don’t feel safe. Using Lepro LED strip lights can give just enough light to make them feel secure while being dim enough to allow them to go to sleep. You could even add a timer so the lights click off automatically after a while.
Swings and Slides
This might be the weirdest idea but it is worth considering. Adding a swing or slide to the room can be achieved by finding the ceiling joist to attach it to. A slide can be added to the bed frame. This will ensure that cabin fever during rainy days never happens again, and boring days are the thing of the past. Plus the kids can always burn off some steam swinging in a safe environment. And if you don’t want to drill into the ceiling, you can buy attachments which fit on to the doorframes instead.
Have you ever considered using your kids’ cupboards as a way to display their artwork? Attaching their most recent pieces of art to the front doors of the cupboards can be a great way to add a personal touch and remind them of what they have achieved during the day. Simply add some large, lightweight frames that can be easily opened with some double sided sticky tape and you can keep the art looking stylish.
There are so many fun ways to create a fun space for your kids, the only limit is your imagination!Follow me on social media for more!
