Kids’ rooms can be some of the most fun rooms to decorate and come up with renovation ideas for. However, they can also be challenging because you don’t want to be redecorating every couple of years as kids’ tastes change as they grow up.
As much as you want your kid’s room to be a fun place full of color, forgoing the princess, super hero, or cartoon characters can leave walls open for renovation ideas which really help them learn and get a head-start on their education. Besides the basic letters and numbers, maps can help a lot, and ceilings can become constellations, so they can learn star formations. Idea paint, white boards, and chalk boards can allow them to be creative and do their own non-permanent decorating. Build in bookshelves and start a library for rainy days and to encourage reading when they are grounded.
Use this opportunity to incorporate an inspiring and enjoyable homework space into your renovation ideas, so that it doesn’t seem as much of a chore. If they like hanging out in mommy or daddy’s office, incorporate some of the same elements. Maybe give them a phone, intercom system, or even a mini fridge to keep them refreshed and leave less room for excuses to get up and get distracted.
You may not want a TV as part of your renovation ideas in a kid’s room, but, let’s face it, it is hard to keep them away from that and video games 100% of the time. Instead, you may want to opt for a projector to turn a wall into a mini movie theatre for them and their friends or for playing the xbox.
Every growing boy needs a tree-house, den, or camp. Don’t have room outdoors? Consider incorporating one into your interior renovation ideas by creating an elevated area, like a bunk-bed where they can climb and hide away from it all and use their imaginations.
