Simple changes can make a big difference, so check out these five handy tips and give your cheek monkey something to smile about.
Update their bed
A new bed doesn’t have to cost the earth! In fact, you can pick up a high-quality divan from somewhere like the Divan Beds Centre for a great price, With plenty of styles available you won’t be short of choice and can find a bed with plenty of storage – a must have for any kid’s room. Divans are also the perfect upgrade if you’re moving your cherub out of a cot bed or bunk-bed as they’re comfortable, reliable and long-lasting
Paint the walls
It’s amazing what a drop of paint can do, it’s well worth getting the rollers and brushes out ad revamping the walls. Neutral colours such as white, cream or pale shades of pink or blue are a great way to get the room looking fresh again and you can always add pictures and photo boards to liven things up when you’ve finished. If your child is adamant they want a theme keep things simple but look for boarders and stencils to add some interest (think stars, planets, underwater images and such like).
Create a feature wall
Don’t feel like repainting the entire room? Then you don’t have to. Instead, gather paints, stickers, glitter and anything else that takes your fancy and create your very own feature wall. There are many fun and exciting things you can do from stencilling your child’s name onto the wall to painting a solar system or a castle, so let your imagination run wild and get the whole family involved. If arts and crafts aren’t your strongest skill, don’t worry as there are some great wall transfers out there that will do most of the work for you.

Think about flooring options
If the carpet in your child’s room is looking rather faded, tatty and unpleasant, wouldn’t it be good to replace it with something soft, practical and aesthetically pleasing? With a host of colours and patterns to choose from you won’t be short of choice and you can even buy carpets for kids with cartoons and famous characters on. If your youngster has allergies, however, laminate, wood or vinyl flooring might be more appropriate, so always research your options.
Invest in some soft furnishing
Sometimes, all it takes is a few soft furnishings to liven a place up. Matching cushions, rugs, throws and curtains can look wonderful in both small and large rooms and can either be neutral in colour or bought to correspond with a certain theme. If your little girl dreams of being a princess, for instance, silver, pink or glittery accessories could work wonderfully in her bedroom palace.
Sprucing up a room doesn’t have to be difficult, so keep things simple and enjoy the benefits.
