5 Small Ways to Refresh Your Little One’s Space
Sometimes the littlest changes can have the biggest impact. Give your kids’ bedrooms a fresh new look for a new year with these easy tweaks that are fun as well as functional.
Change One Wall
Add More Storage
The key to a cleaner kids room in 2021: A place for everything. Invest in a few beautiful storage baskets or a new bookshelf, install floating shelves to make the most of wall space, or even put up a hammock for stuffed animals. Put storage spots within your child’s reach to make it easy for them to put things away themselves.
Add Some New Art
Create a Space Within the Space
Rather than having books, toys, and art supplies spread all over the room, corral items by type and create unique spaces that nurture your child’s interests. A table, chair, and cart full of colored pencils, paper, and crayons could occupy a “drawing corner” for your budding artist, or a tent or pile of floor pillows next to a low bookshelf could be a cozy reading nook.
Switch Up The Textiles
“Changing out accessories like throw pillows and rugs can work wonders,” says Blake. Consider a variety of textures, and even layering rugs, to add warmth and coziness. Fresh bedding is another easy way to make a room feel new again. You could also add a dreamy canopy over a bed or nook.
