Planning a spring clean? Then why not get the kids to help? What better way to make the most of the longer days and summer sunshine than by getting creative and adding a bit of personality to your children’s bedrooms. And the best part is, it doesn’t have to cost fortune! There are plenty of fun looks that you can create on a budget. From nautical themes to bold prints, it’s time for you and the little ones to grab your paintbrushes and get decorating!
Bold and beautiful
After a long and miserable winter, it may seem impossible to prise your kids away from the TV screen. But don’t panic, we have the answer… a burst of colour is what your child’s room needs! Giving a room a new dynamic can be one of the best changes you make, and it’s so simple to achieve! Get your little helpers involved and let them pick their favourite colours. A popular choice at the moment is citrus green, a bright and vibrant shade that’s guaranteed to bring a room to life, especially as a window covering – vibrant shades will help add a definite breath of fresh air to the room.

It’s all hands on deck for this design. If your youngsters want the pirate’s life, then it’s time to embrace the classic red and blue colour scheme. A fun style to play with, going nautical means you can be as minimalist or as extravagant as you like. If you’d prefer to keep it basic then we suggest a baby blue shade for the walls, as this provides the ideal base to work with. From here your kids could accessorise with a decorative lifebuoy, skull stencils, or even create their own beach hut! As long as you don’t forget blue and white stripes, and a splash of red for good measure, you’ll be far from walking the plank!
Pretty in pink
If you’re looking for a way to spoil your princess, then why not make everything pretty in pink? Adding a bit of glitter and sparkle to her bedroom can certainly be the way to your little girl’s heart. But where to start? Our advice is to choose a pastel pink shade for the walls and then take it from there. As much as we love pink, be careful not to overdo it! Maybe opt for white furnishings as a contrast. And to maintain that girly feel, fairy lights and fluffy cushions provide the ideal finishing touch.
