1. Pick a theme
Decide on a general theme but try not to make it too over the top as we all know how kids can go off their once much-loved children’s character or toy like a flick of a light switch and move on to their next obsession, leaving you with a room that’s no longer fit for purpose. You want a bedroom to grow with your child, but one that incorporates a playful, imaginative element.
Whether your theme of choice is based around dinosaurs, a nautical seascape, jungle safari, ballerinas, or a Disney character, you can add quick-win solutions with a bedspread that ticks the theme, carefully placed toys scattered around the room, or a picture/colour palette that’s in keeping with the overall concept.
There are many ways you can work with a theme from the subtle to the extravagant, but it will frequently be dictated by your budget. Opt for a theme that’s simple and enduring to avoid a complete redesign every other year.
