Transform your child’s room from boring to brilliant. These décor trends are way cool.
Even the youngest members of the family deserve their own space to chill out in – an area that is inspiring and functional. A bedroom makeover is a fun project to tackle during the holidays because an RCS Personal Loan of up to R150 000 makes it so easy to do. With these exciting décor ideas, you’ll be guaranteed some moan-free family time.
Encourage exploration with a big world map wall decal as the focal point of the room, or a play tent to stimulate a sense of adventure. Then, add some floating book ledges to display the covers of your child’s favourite books. After that anything goes, from vintage suitcases, globes and model airplanes to your own travel souvenirs and a towering floor plant. If your child is older, choose pastel tones. If they are younger, go for bright colours and show off their stuffed animal collection.
Kids have a lot of stuff so a loft bed is a clever way to add fun, function and style to their room. Starting as a play/toy storage area and later becoming a great study spot, a loft bed is a worthwhile investment. Choose one with built-in storage or go for a basic frame and have fun creating a reading nook, Lego factory or pretty playhouse.
If you have a natural-born cool kid on your hands then it’s only right to give them a room to match. Let them bust a move to Bruno Mars with a funky Bluetooth speaker or help them appreciate the smooth sounds of vinyl on an old-school turntable. Pick up a retro piece of furniture in sunshine yellow or turquoise blue for a pop of colour and add décor with rockstar elements like wayfarer sunglasses, sneakers and guitars.
Kids love nothing more than being creative. Instead of cringing at the thought of glitter all over the coffee table and paint supplies scattered around the house, create a spot dedicated to all things arty. Let this space inspire the rest of their bedroom with vibrant colours set against bright white. Think wall-mounted buckets for easy-to-reach supplies, a wipe-clean table top and a wire with clips to hang their masterpieces.
Most little dudes dream about being superheroes, but if your son has graduated from Spiderman bedding there are ways to keep your favourite crime fighters around in style. Choose a crisp colour scheme like navy and white or grey and teal. Then add a superhero cushion, a wall print and a rad light box. For the finishing touch, put up floating shelves to display their beloved action figures.
A CACTUS, A UNICORN AND A FLAMINGO
These guys aren’t going anywhere anytime soon so embrace the fun and fill your trolley with themed décor from bedding to cushions and stationery. You’ll have hours of fun shopping these girly trends and they’re guaranteed to keep the winter blues away.
