Split the Boys Bedroom Up
Take the best of their artistic efforts and frame them. It doesn’t have to cost the earth, scour the local boot sale for frames, ditch the naff pictures and re-use them for Picasso Jr’s efforts. Either group the frames together for a designer look, or if they’re hanging in rows, do so in odd numbers of three or five; it’s the top interior designer’s tip!
Blow it UP
Nooo, not your boys’ bedroom, though it’s tempting when you see how quickly they can mess it up! Blow up – enlarge – a great family photo, or one with your son and his siblings/sports hero/pop star idol to cover an entire wall. It’ll give an instant wow appeal to your boys’ bedroom.
Inside the Book
DIY with some wooden poles and a couple of old sheets or big squares of material. Add a torch, a few school-style toys and games, and something to sleep on for the coolest sleepovers during half-term.
Alternatively, you could install a bunk bed (or mezzanine floor depending on space) and hang some drapes from the ceiling in a green colour following the line of your ceiling tree painted branches for a super cool, indoor treehouse themed sleeping space.
Give them a wall on which to express themselves. Don’t get caught up in the perfect home décor, magazine look; remember this is your home, not a show house.
If your children want to chalk, graffiti, draw or write, then allow them a designated space on the boys’ bedroom to do just that. There’s nothing wrong with a little creative genius! And you’ll probably find that it stops them from doing so elsewhere (such as your new expensive wallpaper).Did you enjoy this article? Check out our 10 Imaginative Ideas for a Girls Bedroom!
