Decorating a young child’s bedroom can be great fun and is the perfect excuse to throw off the shackles and be as bold and creative as your imagination allows.
Whether you’re creating a room for a boy or girl, play area or nursery, you don’t have to spend a fortune to turn it into a magical room they can be proud of.
While a fresh lick of paint will give the room a new appearance, adding decorative lighting will really bring the room to life and create a space where they will love spending their time. Who knows, they may even start going to bed early!
The great thing about decorative lights is that they add immediate character to a room, are affordable and offer endless possibilities so you can keep trying new ideas.
Most are battery operated meaning you don’t have to worry about cables causing trip hazards and come with a timer so they switch on and off automatically, in case you forget to.
Whatever age your child, here are a few simple and cost-effective lighting tips that you will want to try.
