Building cabinet beds is an excellent way to create privacy in a shared room while creating a unique kids decor. If space allows, two cabinet beds can be placed in opposite corners of the room, giving each child their own "hide-out" to sleep and play in. Plans for cabinet beds are available online, but a simpler solution is to use tall bookshelves to create a "room" with the bed inside. Replace the paper backing on ready-to-assemble bookshelves with medium density fiberboard, position the shelves around the bed, and bolt the shelves together. A door or drapery can be added for extra privacy, if needed, and the shelves add much needed storage space. The interior of the bed cabinet can be painted to suit each child's taste in kid's decor. With the addition of a fold down, wall-mounted desk, floating shelves, wall art or wall baskets, and each cabinet can be customized for study, play, or just hanging out.
Always be practical with kid's decor, and decorate with things that will help keep the room clean and organized. Be sure to create sufficient storage space to make clean up time quick and easy. Bins and shelves are great for keeping books, games, puzzles and items your child uses on a regular basis. Stickers or decals are an attractive way to touch on the decorative theme - on the walls, on bookshelves, even on dressers. They can easily be removed or painted over when the fad passes.
The kids room should always be fun and homey. It should emit warmth and coziness so you can motivate the kids to stay there and sleep on their own without the usual fuss. Therefore decorations would be a very important part of making sure that the kids' room stays nice and truly attractive. You can also involve the kids fully as you plot and plan the best decorations for their room.
Sheets are another multi-tasking tool that works wonders in a child's room. Of course, you can put them on the bed, but there are a number of creative uses for sheets that have nothing to do with sleeping. They make great curtains - just cut the side edges along the top or bottom hem and slip them on a curtain rod. Sewn together, two sheets can make a super easy duvet cover. Cut them up, and they become table covers for night stands or banners for the walls. Sheets can be used to make a pile of decorative pillows to brighten up the bed. Use your imagination, and let the kids get involved. You may be surprised at the fun and ingenuity.
Bonding time with the kids - Decorating the room with the kids can also be your excuse to take a break from your otherwise busy schedule at work and spend time with them. Decorating the room can be made fun when you do it together and you can also bring the kids with you to the hardware store to purchase necessary items. This can be a way for them to appreciate shops such as the home furniture section. There's nothing better too than being able to relax and unwind together with the kids as you all do something fun.
