Smart Design Ideas for Renovating the Children's Room

Published Jan 31, 2018 | Updated Oct 28, 2019

How can you ensure your home renovation project includes a room design your child will love?

As if property maintenance is not expensive enough, taking on a child's room can be a daunting task. They just have so much stuff!

Follow these useful tips to maximize your storage space and have your room looking like new.

1. Storage Ideas

Incorporate colourful bins that match the colour scheme at a low level. By leaving them at your child's height level, they can be involved in the home cleaning and have easy access. If you're stretched for space, get under-the-bed storage bins from IKEA that they can wheel out when needed. This could be a good space for seasonal clothes or less popular toys. You could also add the dresser to the closet, to eliminate wasted space in the room itself or incorporate a storage option that has additional purposes, such as seating. Instead of a bulky bookshelf, display books in wall-mounted bins for a more storage-friendly solution.

2. Wall Space

Kids love to display their work and get creative. Paint a space on the wall with chalkboard paint for them to display their work. Alternatively, you could install a dry erase board if you prefer not to use chalk. Tie a string across the room that displays their school or art work for an inexpensive way to add to the decoy of room. You could also buy inexpensive frames and then display their work on the walls. Don’t overcrowd the walls, or you will see a very hard time when you are spring cleaning the room.

3. Pick Easy Decor They Will Grow With

As your child grows, so will their tastes. Picking decor items that are easy to update or require minimal change allows you to have your child express themselves without losing time or money. A simple touch, like a removable wall transfer is a great way to demonstrate their style, that can later be changed. And do pick something that you can do easy upholstery cleaning on – don’t bother with expensive décor that will cost you more for cleaners than, say, a wooden chair.

And then end everything up with a good old home cleaning. Preferably, get a cleaning company to do that for you. You already spent enough time on the room, let somebody else have a turn. The professional cleaners will know exactly what your child needs and they will make sure that the room is perfectly clean and ready for use.
