Bedroom Decorating Ideas

Bedroom Decorating Ideas

Bedrooms are our sanctuary. It’s the place where we go to relax and renew. Babies sleep soundly (or not so) in their rooms, kids spend hours in imaginative play in their rooms and teen dramas and angst unfold in their rooms. Some people work or watch television in their bedrooms. Plain white walls and sparse furniture is ok for some, but many people want their bedrooms to reflect their personality and spirit.  
 
Baby Bedrooms
Don’t limit yourself to blue for boys and pink for girls. Today’s parents want hip, exciting yet serene and gender neutral nursery themes to engage and soothe their babies.
 
Top baby decorating themes include:
  • African safari
  • Old West
  • Geometric shapes
  • Medieval castles
When purchasing a crib for your baby’s room, check with Health Canada for the latest crib recalls to make sure your baby’s room is safe as well as beautiful.
 
Toddler Bedrooms
Toddlers’ rooms should be inspiring and fun. Try these creative bedroom decorating ideas:
  • Princess
  • Transportation
  • Sea life
  • Animals
Toddlers are always on the go investigating their newly discovered world. They sometimes create havoc as they explore their surroundings, so keep toddlers’ rooms simple and free from enticing and breakable items. Plan a do it yourself child proof day, or hire someone to make sure your newly mobile toddler stays safe.  
Older Children
Kids at this stage are ready to participate in decorating their rooms. Take some time to find out where their interests are and build a dream room around their vision. Possible ideas for kids’ bedrooms are:
  • Super heroes
  • Favourite story/movie characters
  • Pirates
  • Space camp
Keep in mind whether you plan to redecorate in a few years, or if this room decor will last them through the teen years.  
 
Teen Bedrooms
This is a special time in a child’s life. Teenagers have great ideas of who they want to be and what image they want to project. Decorating their room is a wonderful opportunity for them to express their unique creativity. Steer them in a couple of different broad directions and step back and watch their creativity blossom. Some themes to consider:
  • Modern
  • Retro
  • Asian
General Bedroom Decorating Tips:
Choose colours and accessories according to your preference for warm, cool or neutral colours. Once the colour theme has been chosen, you can add any decorating touch that suits your personality.
  • Warm colours include red, orange, yellow and green, and convey warmth and comfort in your bedroom.
  • Cool colours include purple, blue, aqua and light green and express stability detachment and calm.
  • Neutral colours include black, white, grey and beige, and are the perfect backdrop for any creative decorating expressions you have.
Decorating your bedroom helps you find your inner designer. Spend time deciding what themes and colours represent where you or your child is at this particular stage of life and let the creative juices flow.
