A child’s bedroom is not just a place for them to sleep. It’s a place where they can hang out with their friends, study or just spend some time relaxing with a book or a computer game. You want to make sure that your kids have a great space to do all of these things. But, how do you do this if you only have a limited budget?

The good news is that having a limited amount of money does not prevent you from providing your kids with an amazing bedroom. We have put together some tips to help you make this happen.

Use a draw on wallpaper

One great way of keeping your kids entertained, and giving them a bedroom to love, is to buy a draw on wallpaper. This type of wallpaper provides your kids with an opportunity to use their creativity to design their own bedroom walls. Any designs they do create can then be wiped clean, enabling them to start all over again.

Mix as well as matching

Buying a matching set of furniture for a child’s bedroom can be expensive. Instead of doing this, it’s a good idea to build up the collection of furniture over time. You do not have to make sure that items match; in fact, a mix of bright and bold designs and colours can be fun for your child to enjoy.

Shop second hand

When you are building up the collection of furniture in your kids’ room, why not shop second hand. You can check out local yards’ sales and visit sites such as Gumtree online, to buy good quality items at a reduced price. It’s important to remember that there are certain items which you should always buy new, such as a kids mattress. Second hand mattresses can be full of bacteria, and you do not want to risk your kids’ health.

Re-paint instead of replacing

If your child has a much-loved item of furniture in their room, and it’s looking a little worn, you should think about fixing it up rather than getting rid of it. For instance, if your child’s desk is looking faded, you just need to give it a new coat of paint. Your child gets to keep the desk they love to use, as well as getting to enjoy its new design.  

Create your own child’s mobile

You want to give your kids a creative space in which they can sleep and play. A great way of doing this is to design a mobile for them to enjoy as they grow from a baby to a toddler. You can also make interesting mobiles for older children. It’s an affordable way of giving your child’s bedroom a unique look.

You can see that having a limited budget does not stop you from decorating your kids’ bedroom in a fun and interesting way. Hopefully, our tips have given you some useful ideas about how to do this.
