Can you remember your bedroom when you were a kid? It probably wasn’t anything creatively fun and colorful. Nevertheless, you can still experience the childhood you missed through the young ones in your life today. Check out the great ideas below for the inspiration you need to transform your kids bedroom.

1. Chalkboard Wall

Encourage creativity by adding a chalkboard stripe on one wall of your kids’ bedroom. With numerous colors of chalk paint available, you won’t find it hard to blend it in with whichever color palette that makes up the room.

2. Redesigned pendant fixtures

Instilling style to a room doesn’t have to be elaborate. Even something as simple as a fun light fixture can work wonders

3. Maps

Introduce your child to the far corners of the world by lining up one of the bedroom walls with a colorful World Map. Better yet, get a non-colored one and make it a project for you and your kids to paint in the cities, countries and other special places you have visited.

4. Sports Center

If your kid lives in jerseys and grass stains, bring the excitement into the house by designing a sports-themed bedroom. You can complement this sporty design with DIY bedding in their favorite team’s colors

5. Under the sea

A teal and purple palette can transform your kids’ bedroom into a magical, ocean-like atmosphere. Throw in sea creatures’ cutouts to bring the theme to life.

9. Treehouse

Just because you live in a big apartment building doesn’t mean your kid must give up on their treehouse dream. Get an exquisitely designed treehouse wallpaper and the right furniture to match, and your children will thoroughly appreciate their safe, all-weather nest.

10. House within a house

Not straying far from treehouses, giving your kids a house rather than a mere room can be the best way for them to learn responsibility. Redesign the bedroom into a small house, complete with a safely accessible attic with additional sleeping space to make it more fun and stimulating, especially during sleepovers.
