5 Things to think about when decorating a child’s bedroom

5 things to think about when decorating a childs bedroom

When decorating a childs bedroom there are a few things to think about, such as what colours to use, what the child is going to use the room for, is it going to be a dual purpose room for study and play? Or is it just a play area? Here are just five things to think about.

Bright and bold

Kids love bright and bold colours so reds, yellows, blues and oranges will keep the kids interested and make it a fun room to be in, especially if they are young. Don’t be afraid to use colour in a kids room, you can always change it at a later date when they get older and grow out of the current colour scheme.

Think tough

Kids being kids will make marks on the walls and paintwork so look out for wipeable emulsions and those that say they are tougher than normal, the same goes for woodwork. A good emulsion should allow you to remove any scuffs easily, if you are going to use wallpaper, find a scrubbable and washable paper so marks can be removed.

Murals and drawings

To make a room even more fun, you can add drawings or murals to a wall, or perhaps a decal of their favorite superhero? You could theme a room to what your child is interested in, such as animals, cars, or space, and the theme can be changed as they grow and tastes change. If you are an artist or know a friend who is one, you can have a scene painted onto the walls of over lining paper.

Storage

Kids have a lot of toys and games and you will need somewhere to store them all for when they have finished playing with them at the end of the day, so think of storage solutions, such as underbed storage, cupboards, shelves, and storage boxes. All of these things are relatively cheap to buy and will help keep your kids room clutter free, which will inturn make the task of cleaning just that little bit easier.

Study area

As your children gets older they will need a place to study and do their homework, so a desk will be vital and help them organise their stuff and have a quiet place to study and do their homework. These can be a stand alone desk bought as a flat pack that you assemble yourself, or a custom made one if you have a small or awkward area to fit a desk into. You can do it yourself by buying some wood and board from a DIY store if you are handy with your hands.

Tips for painting new plaster.

1. NEWLY PLASTERED WALLS SHOULD BE LEFT TO DRY COMPLETELY BEFORE ANY PAINT OR PRIMER ARE APPLIED. YOU WILL KNOW THE PLASTER IS DRY WHEN ALL DARK PATCHES HAVE DISAPPEARED AND THE COLOUR OF THE PLASTER TURNS TO A LIGHT PINK. IN AN IDEAL WORLD THIS SHOULD BE LEFT FOR A FURTHER WEEK TO ENSURE THE PLASTER HAS DRIED FULLY BEFORE APPLYING THE PRIMER.

2. THE FIRST COAT ON ANY NEW PLASTER SHOULD BE A PRIMER WHICH HELPS SEAL THE PLASTER AND CREATES A BETTER SURFACE FOR PAINT TO ADHERE ONTO. NOT USING A PRIMER WILL RESULT IN THE PLASTER SOAKING UP ANY PAINT APPLIED TO IT. FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS ON THE TIN OF PRIMER, APPLY THE SEALER TO THE WALLS USING A ROLLER.

ITS ALSO POSSIBLE TO USE A STANDARD WHITE EMULSION PAINT IN PLACE OF THE PRIMER BY MIXING THE PAINT WITH WATER. THIS METHOD IS AS EFFECTIVE AND CAN BE A CHEAPER OPTION. MIX AROUND 70% PAINT AND 30% WATER IN A KETTLE AND APPLY TO THE WALLS USING A ROLLER.

2. ALLOW THE COAT OF PRIMER TO DRY AS STATED ON THE TIN OR FOR AROUND A DAY BEFORE APPLYING YOUR FIRST COAT OF PAINT.
