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.
Pick materials that are easily washable as kids can and will dirty their rooms and curtains. Choose colors that don't show stains or preferably pick fabrics that don't get stained easily. As far as children are concerned curtains are great for wiping greasy fingers, paints on the palms of their hands, sticky hands, chocolate around the mouth and much more. You can't be really monitoring children 24 hours and if something is stuck to their hands or face and troubling them then it has to come off immediately and curtains come handy for these things.
If you want to be gender specific then think curtains with prints of cars, airplanes, trucks, cranes, animals, trains for boys. For girls its prints of mermaids, fairies, princesses, dolls, puppies, kittens that make nice window accessories. Blue for boys and pink for girls is the usual color chosen but you can pick any bright color like yellows, oranges, and light green, white with bright prints and so on.
It can be a rewarding process to redo a child's room, especially when you allow the child to get involved in the decorating. After all he or she knows what they like, and are often quite vocal at a young age about what they want.
The next decision is finish or color. This one is probably a little easier of a choice. You can choose a specific color to match the walls or something in the room, like a bed comforter or a decorative item. Or you could do a flat black if you do not want it to stand out. It also depends on the color of your painted walls. If you have white walls, a bright color might look great with your room. Look at your curtains and the other items in your room and decide on a finish that will match or complement them.
