When you want to redecorate a child's room, you may not need to repaint, paper or change the walls at all. A change of accessories, bedding, and especially curtains can change a room dramatically without going through the expense of a complete redecoration. You will be amazed at the change even when changing a window treatment.
Paint is cheap and the best way to create effects in any bedroom. You can ask your kids to collaborate in creating ideas by using layered effects on walls and windows. Stenciling is one of the easiest ways to do that. You can get professional stencils and stencil paints to create designs on the bedroom glasses and even on the window sills. The stencil paints are weather hardy but they can be easily removed or painted over to create new designs as your child grows. There are thousands of stencil libraries online where you will get all sorts of patterns for a nominal fee or for free.
Let the old traditional idea of panel curtains fall from your mind and embrace lighter, more vibrant looks for a child's bedroom. Instead of heavy floral drapes, opt for fabrics that are both lighter and more appropriately themed. Many large department and home decor shops offer panel curtains that are perfectly suited to the needs of a child's bedroom. There are curtains with dinosaurs, curtains with ballerinas and curtains with just about any other childlike theme that you could want. If, however, your idea of the perfect curtain is nowhere to be seen, you can create your own whimsical pattern from fabric that you purchase. A simple pocket panel curtain can quickly transform the look of a room and give you that fun look you've been searching for.
A good idea is to visit your local thrift shop or second-hand swag store where you will get mismatched curtains, sheeting and even cushion covers that can be patched together to create wonderful kitschy kids bedroom curtains. Cartoon characters, knights themes and a military these are ideal for growing boys. You can find cheap green cloth at the local thrift store and then back that up with flags, maps and other paraphernalia. The knights theme can be carried out with the use of wooden swords mounted on the walls, wooden furniture and a mock knights crest that is printed with computer printers on to stationary and even the walls.
Net curtains. Net curtains are back in fashion, and should no longer be associated with fusty, old-fashioned interiors. Plain white, thin net curtains make a room appear more elegant, and from a practical side, stop people peering into your living room. If you prefer patterns, it's advisable to keep it minimal, or focussed only on the bottom half of the curtain. Patterns such as leaves and flowers are usually preferred, as they serve as a connection between the outside and inside space.
