Here is a look at our top budget-friendly tips for your child’s room:
- Artwork. Adding artwork to the walls of your kids’ room is a great way to give the room a new look without spending too much. One fun option is to make your own garlands or buntings using tissue paper or materials from the mobiles you used to have hanging above their crib. Or you can channel your inner artist and head down to your local crafts store to pick up a canvas and some paint. Personalize your piece of artwork (such as lyrics from a song you have always sung them) and see what a difference it will make on the walls!
- Pick a theme. It is likely that your kids will grow out of the themed room you decorated for them when they were younger, but that doesn’t mean another theme is out of the question! This doesn’t have to be expensive, as you can get creative and use specific colors and even print out pictures or images from whatever it is they are interested in to then be hung around the room.
- Repurpose and recycle. Turn that old, beaten-up dresser in the garage into a colorful storage unit, or even try reupholstering a small chair for their room. Thrift stores are a great, cheap resource that will give you plenty of options when it comes to redecorating. If you aren’t feeling too ambitious, you can simply stain an old dresser, bench, or bookshelf to give it a new look.
- Create child-friendly displays. Depending on your kids’ age, it could be fun to create shelving displays that allow your kids to access their toys right down at their own level. Repurpose some old shelving or head to the thrift store again, give them a new paint job, and strategically place your kids’ toys and books so they can access them whenever they want.
Giving your child’s room a new look doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg, it will just take a little bit of creativity and help from Mom’s Bunk House!
