Your child’s bedroom should be a place where they feel happy and safe. It should be a reflection of their creativity, and of all the things they enjoy. Most children will have a very specific idea of what they want their room to look like. As their parent, you will no doubt want to make their dreams a reality. However, if you only have a limited amount of money to spend, this can be a little difficult.
Have no fear! Below are five ways that you can design your child’s ideal bedroom on a budget.
Turn your renovations into a gift
If your child is desperate for a new room, why not give it to them for their birthday or Christmas? Obviously, you can still buy them small gifts, but their main present could be a new bedroom. If you don’t think that your child can wait until their next celebration, you could do the basic renovations now. Then, you could give them the accessories for their room at a later date. This is a fantastic way for you to combine your costs.
Look around when hiring help
If you need the help of your Local Builder, make sure that you shop around first. You can look online to hire reasonable and reliable builders while being protected by an insurance-backed guarantee. This will help you to protect your investment. Your builder can install clever storage solutions, create bespoke pieces for your child’s room, and take care of all your fittings and fixtures. It’s vital that you don’t cut corners, and take the time to find someone who knows what they’re doing.
Embrace the world of second hand
Visit second-hand stores to find affordable items that can be upcycled for your child’s room. This is a great way to purchase unique items that are surprisingly durable. You should also look online for people that are selling their second-hand items. Once you understand the process of buying second-hand, you can have a lot of fun securing yourself the best deals.
Invest in a design that can grow with your child
Don’t choose a design that will need to be replaced in a few months. Instead, invest in items that can grow with your child. One way to do this is to opt for neutral walls and plain furniture. Then, introduce accessories into the room that fit with your child’s perfect theme. This will allow you to create a very exciting design scheme, while reducing the cost of redecorating in the future.
Make it yourself
When you’re decorating your child’s room, remember to add a personal touch. Take the time to create something unique for your child to enjoy. You could paint a mural, sew a quilt, or pass on some of your childhood treasures. This is a great way to save money while showing that you care. You should also get your kids involved. You could encourage them to create interesting artwork that matches the design scheme, and then display them creatively.
