What distinguish a good design from a bad one aren’t the costs you spent, but the result you achieve in the end. The good result that really express your personality, meet your needs and makes you feel so satisfied with what you did. You can use the same concept in designing your kid’s bedroom; it doesn’t have to cost you a fortune to look good.
The first idea you can use to design your kid’s bedroom on budget is to choose a theme for the room. This idea will save you a lot of money and time, because you will be committed only to one theme and that will help you to buy certain items. You can choose the theme according to your kid’s favorites. For example, if you have a girl, you can go for a princess theme and if you have a boy then you can go for cars theme.
Taking your kid’s opinion is very important; eventually he or she is the one who is going to use this room and it has to express them like I mentioned above. You can save some money by doing some jobs by yourself like painting the walls; you can even ask for some help form your family and enjoy that fun time together. Investing in a good quality paint type that lasts for a long time, will be such a money saving idea, because you won’t need to repaint the room for along time. Just remember to let your son or your daughter choose the color they like and apply it to their room.
Adding murals or posters to your kid’s bedroom sound like a simple and affordable idea, your kid will really feel like he or she are living in a world of their choice, you see it doesn’t have to be expensive to be impressive, right? Choosing wallpapers instead of painting sound like an easier and cheaper idea for now, but it may need some effort if you decided to change or replace them later.
When you shop for the furniture pieces, look for durable and long lasting pieces, but wait I could pay a lot to get this, right? Well, the answer is no, just look for good offers and do some shopping at garage or thrift stores and you will find all the durable materials you need and with affordable prices. Buy only the basic furniture pieces that your kid will really need like the bed, closet and desk, this will help you to save more space for your kid to move freely and it will save you more money at the same time.
If you have old furniture pieces, you can invest in top coating or simply paint them with a cute color that matches your kid’s room and avoid spending more money on buying new furniture items. The storage units like toy boxes, baskets and wall shelves won’t cost you a fortune, but they will keep your kid’s bedroom neat and tidy, they also come with cute designs that will add some fun to your kid’s room.
If you want other affordable ideas to decorate your kid’s bedroom walls, look for some cute pictures in magazines, books or even use your kid’s own drawings, put them in nice frames and hang them on the wall. This one will cost you nearly nothing, but it will be such an amazing and funny decorative touch.
You don’t have to buy new curtains, because you can simply renew any old curtains you have by adding some creative ideas like, cartoon badges, beads or ribbons. You can also use the same idea with the lighting items, just buy any ordinary lamp shades or table lamps, use the help of the glue and stick some cute stickers on them; they will really look different, cute and funny.
In general, use the affordable accessories that enhance your kid’s bedroom design and cost you less money as well. Eventually what really matters the most is the fun and the amazing times that your kid will spend in his or her room, not the prices of the stuff that he or she will use. Most importantly is to design a room full of love and warmness because, that is exactly what your kid really needs.
