Plan for the future
If you’re just beginning to decorate for your little one, consider a neutral base palette and accessorise with colour
Streamline and shine
Raise the bar
Fix shelves to the wall to provide extra storage and teach kids to put their belongings away. Ensure hooks are sturdy enough to withstand the weight of a school bag.
Do things by half
Can’t face painting the whole room? Inject colour and create a focal point with a daddo-height band of your child’s favourite hue from the floor up.
If your child is reaching high school age, encourage homework time by setting up a dedicated desk area to store and attend to school work.
Bring in the latest trends
Have fun with the decoration of your kids room and encourage their input. As you will likely change it again before too long, don’t be afraid to break the rules with things like removable wall stickers and bright seasonal colours.
