3 easy ways to completely revamp your kid’s room
By Aimee Heckel
Plenty of people use the New Year to set goals to revamp their bodies. Why not resolve to give your house an updated look, too?
Here are three easy ways to completely revamp and update your kids’ room:
1. Declutter and reorganize. Now is the perfect time of year to get rid of the old and make space for all of the new that Santa brought. Take a weekend to sort through your child’s toys and throw away anything that is broken (that will likely cover a huge chunk of junk right there). Donate the toys that they no longer play with.
Pick up a new chest of drawers or organization bins to store the toys. Consider using creative baskets or bins to add a little character — and remove a little clutter. Pick up a few recycled school lockers or an old piece of luggage.
One of our favorite ways to organize toys is with the Neatfreak Kids Toy Storage Organizer from Macy’s, on sale right now for $179.99. Seriously, this is the mother of all storage solutions, with plenty of drawers, rows, pockets — and the bins are removable, to make playtime easier.
2. Add some wall decals. You don’t need to be artistic to add some creative flair to your kids walls, with wall decals. Play up an existing theme or pick a new theme, and simply peel and stick. Whether it’s a dramatic tree above your kid’s bed or a row of daisies on their closet door, colorful stickers can add a lot — and not damage the wall or be a permanent fixture.
3. Add stencil details. This will keep your room design unique — and they still don’t demand much artistic skill. Add a delicate flower stencil to the chest of drawers or stencil your child’s name above the closet. Stencil swirls and hearts on a lampshade, without having to spend much money on a new one.
