Shelley’s Guide to Decorating your Kid’s Bedroom

Shelley’s Guide to Decorating your Kid’s Bedroom

As a busy mum, Carpet Court ambassador and Australian TV personality, Shelley Craft knows just how important it is to create a fun and comforting bedroom that your kid will love for years to come.

To help make bedroom updates easier, Shelley shares her top tips for decorating your kid’s bedroom.

1. Update the Floors Kids Bedroom Decorating Ideas
The floor is a key play space in any kids room, so it’s really important to choose the right kind of flooring for your family!

Carpet is a great option if you are looking for colour, comfort and cost. My Real Living, Vida carpet is soft under foot and provides superior stain resistance, making it perfect for busy feet and sticky fingers.

Hard flooring like Vinyl, Laminate or Timber are all fantastic options when it comes to choosing family friendly bedroom flooring. I love my Real Living, Urban Trends Laminate, as it is hardwearing and very easy to clean. It’s also a fabulous choice if you live in warmer climates, have lots of ‘hair’ or pets, and a great choice for children who may have allergies too.

2. Paint the Walls  Kids Bedroom Decorate With Paint
A DIY paint job or feature wall is the perfect way to add some colour and personality to your kid’s bedroom.

If you are game…Get your little one involved by allowing them to choose their favourite colour and enjoy a day painting together. If you aren’t quite ready to cover every wall, a feature wall is a fun way to add a little colour. Consider choosing wallpaper instead of paint for extra wow factor or Decals are an easy update and even easier to remove and change as they get older.

3. Add a Rug Kids Bedroom Rugs
Whether you have chosen carpet or hard flooring, a rug is a great way to add texture and zones in a room to create a defined play space. It’s also a way to protect your bigger investment, the real flooring, and again gives you options for updating as your child transitions through different ages and phases.

Carpet Court offer a huge range of kid’s rugs, and from dinosaurs to rainbows, or something a little more subtle and stylish like stripes or spots, there is something for every style and personality.

4. Have Fun When Styling  Kids Bedroom Decorate Fun
A kid’s room is all about fun and being creative, so don’t forget to let your child’s personality shine through when styling their new room.

Whether it is a print from a movie they love hung on the wall, throw pillows in their favourite colours or a cute craft corner, make sure you create a space they want to be in.
