How to Decorate Your Kid’s Room On a Budget

Looking at redecorating your kid’s room, but worried about money? Looking at cute decorations on websites and then wincing at the cost can be exasperating. It’s important to remember that kids don’t care about cost. They care about whether they like it or not.

Remember this, and it’s not going to be all that hard to decorate your kid’s room on a budget. You don’t have to forget safety, comfort, or functionality, but you’re not going to have the break the bank.

Carpeting

A fun thing to do is use old pieces of carpeting from rugs you no longer use (some stores even sell pieces) to make small area rugs. The patchwork look is really fun and can be very colorful. If you feel safety is an issue, you can tape these rugs to the floor to make sure they don’t slip.

Paint

New color can completely change the room. As kids get older, their sense of style—and often their favorite color—changes. Switching out the color of the walls can allow them to make their old room into a totally new one.

Fun With Stickers

Another way to decorate your child’s room on a budget is to add wallpaper collages or wall decals. Wallpaper has come back into style, but it can be expensive to use over a large area. Create collages of pieces to add a dash of life to a wall or even a wardrobe door.

Single rolls of end-of-run danglers can be bought at low prices, and sometimes you can even find discontinued wallpaper sample books for free.

Wall decals are a big hit with kids, the bigger, the better. They can add real drama to a room. There are many premade designs, but many companies will print custom designs for a little extra cost. Most of these decals are removable and leave no residue.

Some are even reuseable. Bear in mind they don’t work very well on textured surfaces, so be sure to place them on a smooth wall or perhaps even a door.

Rearrange the Furniture

If you want to try a totally new look for no cost, try simply rearranging the room. It can be surprising how much of a difference even a small shift can make. Put the bed against another wall or angle it differently, and the space can feel very different and new.

Give New Life to Old Furniture

Try refurbishing a vintage rocking chair or old dresser instead o buying a new bedroom set. Old nursey room pieces can be reupholstered or repainted to fit into your child’s new room. You can keep this up as they grow older, or even move.

DIY Art

Create a personalized, handmade mobile. You can make it from all kinds of simple, common, and cheap materials. Use a simple quilt hoop, fishing wire, or fabric, or you could get even more creative and cut shapes from cardstock.

There’s a lot of room for personalization, allowing you to break from the usual birds, butterflies, and shapes you see in off-the-shelf mobiles.

For some other kinds of simple and personal touches of art, you can create fabric artwork. All it takes is stapling some fabric around a wooden frame, and you’ve got something both cost-effective and different from your usual prints and posters.

Just as easy and different are tissue pom-poms. These inexpensive and easily made decorations can add some real pop and are easily replaced if damaged or worn. Different sizes and tissue paper in shade sof the same color can add variety.

Bedding

New bedding can really make a difference in any room. You can keep a few sets on hand with different colors and themes so you can make quick changes whenever you (or your child) feel like it. This is true of throw and decorative pillows, too.

Make sure you pick bedding that fits with the rest of the room or adds something unique to it. As you might imagine, the bed is a the major focus of the bedroom and bedding can really change the look.

Add in a few classic children’s books as decorations. Not only do they look nice, they’re also easy to find and fairly cheap. Who knows, it might just encourage a love of reading.

Another educational sort of touch is an alphabet collage. Wooden or fabric letters can be accumulated over time for a fun and personal look. As kids grow older, they can keep adding to the collage as they learn their letters. Mix up the styles, materials, and patterns for a creative bit of smart art.
