While decorating the kid’s room, one should keep in mind that this is the place children use most so comfort and lighting are of paramount importance. Parents also get to spend some quality time with their kids and create memorable treasures in the process of decorating their child’s room.

It is important to save money as well as get the best value for money. The most important thing to remember when decorating a child's bedroom is to think ahead. Before you know it, your cute baby will be a toddler and not so long after that he or she will be in school and have ideas and wishes for their own.

Get the basics correct
You need to get the basics right such as closets and lighting from the beginning. If you are planning a long-term kid’s room, remember storage requirements seem to grow as fast as kids. Design your children's room for fun and practicality by keeping the decoration simple and easy to look after. Kids can be hard on rooms, so use paints that are washable and durable. You could include a scribble-on blackboard in order to spare the paintwork!

Different concepts for girls and boys
A girl’s bedroom can be different from a boy’s. Every little girl loves pretty colours. For a room she will cherish, select fabrics with flowers, trellises, cute animals, or butterflies. You might stencil flowers, vines, and butterflies on walls as a colourful accent, using paint colours matched to your fabric or wallpaper choices.

Don't forget soft, airy curtains for the windows. The Winnie the Pooh Nursery is a childhood classic and easy to decorate as a boy’s room. A painted wall border or simply use the character's accessories placed around the room. Fairytale Princess Rooms are lots of fun for girls and their friends. With a couple of metres of inexpensive voile or netting, you can easy create a princess bed.

Rugged rugs
All kids love covered places where they can hide. Colourful kids’ area rugs add lively interest and playtime pattern to kids’ bedrooms and playroom. In addition, they're a terrific patterned alternative to expensive wallpapers and custom paint techniques. Even with the plain white walls that are often necessary for rented homes and apartments, these rug designs can instantly spark up the look of a child's room.

Rooms for older children
The rooms for older children should reflect their interest, so get them to pick the theme for their bedrooms and let them help you put the room together. If your children are sharing a room, it is advisable to paint the walls in a neutral colour and let them accessorise with their own decorations.

Optimal use of themes
A decorating theme is a great way to begin decorating a room for a child. If you are like most parents, you have probably spent lots of time thinking about decorating your new child's room even before he joined your family. While bunnies and teddy bears are cute, you might want something different for the bedroom or playroom.

There are lots of great themes for boys' rooms. From animals to rainforests to log cabins, a little imagination can provide a real makeover to any room. A special theme will provide both the focus and the inspiration for a special one of a kind room and can be adapted as your child grows.
