Are you thinking about making a change to your child’s room? Now is a perfect time! The holidays are around the corner, and with them, the coming new year. If you want to go big this holiday, give your child the gift of a room they will love.
Children grow fast; just a couple of years is enough for dramatic differences in your child’s activities and lifestyle. That means your child’s room may be long overdue for a total makeover, or at least a few changes.
There are so many ways you can add to your child’s room, making it space they’ll love spending time in. Let’s take a look at some fun and creative things you can do to add to your child’s room.
If your child has homework, then a work desk is a must. Just like adults, children can benefit greatly from having a dedicated area to complete their work. It will promote focus and make the task of completing homework more efficient.
Having a workspace for your child is more important now more than ever because of the pandemic. Most schools have transitioned to distance learning, utilizing laptops and smart devices at home. By adding a desk to your child’s room, you’ll make their learning experience more complete.
Taking things out of your child’s room is the perfect way to add to it. Let me explain. Making your child’s room more spacious has a lot of benefits. It’s safer, easier to maintain, and it gives your child a place to play.
The best way to go about this is to use an affordable dumpster service. Try using Bargain Dumpster to rent a residential dumpster. It’s quick, easy, and you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg to do it.
Find everything you or your child don’t need or use anymore, and throw it in the bin. It’s that easy. You’ll be surprised at how much room you have to work with once all the non-essentials are gone.
Chalkboard or Dry Erase Board
Adding a chalkboard to your child’s room is an easy and cost-efficient idea that can bring your child years of joy. There are so many things you can do with a chalkboard that is both fun and productive.
Get different colored markers or chalk and use it as a creative space. If you put it in a highly visible area, your child’s artwork can be the centerpiece of the room. You can also use it as a to-do list. You or your child can write down chores that have to be done or a list of assignments that need to be finished.
Even more, uses…
- Help with homework.
- Use it as a surface for teaching.
- Buy stencils for any occasion.
- Use a glow in the dark surface.
- Play games on it.
Buy a Bunk Bed
Bunk beds are a great way to make space—especially if your child shares a room. But bunk beds aren’t just about saving space, at least not for your child. It’s exciting for many kids to sleep high up off the ground, tucked away in their secluded bunks.
If your child doesn’t share a room, a bunk bed may still be a good option. Many bunk beds double as a couch-bed combo. If your child has a tv in their room or a video game console, they will be a lot more comfortable compared to just sitting on their bed.
You can also find bunk beds that double as wardrobes and dressers. It’s another convenient way for bunk beds to clear up a lot of space in your child’s room.
Add Artwork to The Walls
There are proven psychological benefits to decorating your walls with artwork. And it doesn’t take much. A single piece of wall art can dramatically change the feeling in a room, making the space more festive and pleasing to look at.
You can ask your child to help choose the perfect piece of wall art, or you can surprise them with their favorite superheroes and movie characters. There’s no limit to what you can find, and there are plenty of websites that let you customize your art.
Make a Reading Nook
A reading nook is a comfortable reading area that can also look nice in a room’s furniture flow. It’s not hard to find some creative takes on the reading nook online. Some take advantage of natural lighting from windows, create comfortable seating out of bean bags and hammocks, or even ceiling swings.
You can also add a bookshelf to this area—think of it as a mini-library. If your child is already a big reader, then a bookshelf can help declutter your child’s books. Having this space can also help encourage your child to read for fun and remain focused.
Hammock or Netted Seating Area
There is something strangely satisfying about laying in a hammock. The gentle back and forth swing and feeling of weightlessness is enough to make any child excited. You also might be surprised to learn that buying and installing a hammock is relatively easy and inexpensive.
You can purchase a hammock with its own support system, so you don’t need to drill into your walls and put in some hard labor. There are also plenty of creative ways to incorporate a hammock into your existing furniture.
Try to place the hammock near a window to take advantage of natural lighting and outdoor views. This can make it the perfect space for your child to relax and clear their head.
