Easy, Low Cost Ideas for Kids RoomWhen you think about redecorating, suddenly all the costs, handymen around the house, days and weeks without proper use of your home and constant work tend to suck out all the fun and joy out of it. By the time the redecoration is done, you are tired, stressed and unable to enjoy it. Well, this is all the opposite from the things you should feel and think when decorating your kids room. First rule of thumb when doing this important and responsible task is that you need to involve them in the process and listen to what they have to say. Some of the things that you can do, they can do with you. This will give them a great sense of importance, make them feel respected and they will definitely love their room much more. Here are some cheap things that you can do with your kids without breaking the bank and still having good time and new kids room.

Chalkboard Paint

If there is one magical thing in the world that is so cool for kids’ room, then it is the [amazon_link id=”B0006BAEI6″ target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow” ]chalkboard paint[/amazon_link]. Whatever your budget for the room may be, make sure that at least a little part of it goes on this paint. Here are just some of the ideas about what you can do with it. Naturally, there is the option of making a board for messages that you and your kid leave to each other. Also, a part of the outside of the door can be turned into the place where you and your young one exchange messages and ‘do not disturb’ signs. However, the real magic starts when you decide that you are bold enough to pain the entire wall using this paint, grab a whole box of chalks in color and do your magic there. With the help of a little sponge and a little bit of water, this ever going art show can be permanent exhibition in your kid’s room. That will give them something to do at all time.

Sponge Furniture

Blocks of sponge are not expensive. Many furniture workshops and similar places have them and they can cut them for you in blocks of any size. All you need to do, together with your little one is to choose the material and fabric in which you will ‘dress up’ those blocks. Sewing the cover for them is easy and you’ll do it in a minute. Once you are done, you’ll get fun, simple and genius furniture for the kid’s room. They can be thrown down on the floor and sat on. When put together and covered with a quilt, they can be a place for afternoon nap. It is impossible to hurt yourself on them as there are no rough edges. While you are at it – they can be thrown on your sibling without hurting them. Not to mention amazing fort-building potential they have.

    We’ve been fixing up our youngest’s bedroom using a lot of these tips. I just took her to Ikea to pick some new lighting for her room.

      I would love to add some colored lighting to our room too. I hate the bright lights in the bedroom.

    We’ve been considering chalkboard paint on one of the walls in the girls’ bathroom to remind them of the things they need to do (brush teeth, etc.).

      This sounds like a great idea Scott. I need to experiment with the chalk board paint.

    Wow chalkboard paint sounds very interesting and risky! Would love to give it a try.

      I want to try the chalkboard paint too. I have seen so many great creations on DIY blogs.

    That chalk paint sounds like a life saver to me–nothing about it is permanent so when the child gets older and his/her tastes change–Voila!! Wish this was around when I lived at home–A DO NOT DISTURB sign would have been nice–not that it would have worked if I had friends over!

      Michele, I love the idea of chalk board paint too. I remember being happy when we moved into a new home when I was a teenager because my room had a lock. 😉

    Yes, I framed my kids drawings and placed it in their rooms and I hope it would encourage them and helps to improve their creativity. I placed fun lamps which was made by me using wastes like plastic and other basic home wastages. This way Kids too get more interested in learning and trying handicrafts in their own. Thanks for sharing this.

      I will have to do this when my youngest goes to school and comes home with his projects. 😉
