4 Kids Bedroom Remodeling Projects

Your kids’ bedroom most likely already includes the basic items, such as a bed, toy box, dresser, and some type of storage unit. But there is a world of possibilities out there for making your children’s bedroom not only functional and practical, but a fun place to be. If you don’t have room in your home for some type of playroom, then your child’s bedroom will double as a play area. Even with a small bedroom that is shared by multiple children, you can utilize every square inch for more storage, decorative, and remodeling possibilities.

Storage

 

One great remodeling project for your kids’ bedroom is to add more storage. Keep in mind that every inch of their bedroom can be used for storage of books, toys, games, and other important items. If your kids have a small bedroom and their toy chests and closets don’t offer enough storage, utilize their empty wall space. Rather than focusing on decorating the walls, take down artwork and framed pictures, ad instead put up bookshelves or floor-to-ceiling shelving. This creates an entire wall of storage possibilities. They can store everything from books to arts and crafts projects, school supplies, and collectibles. Add in some fabric or plastic bins and it creates a clean and organized space.

Flooring

 

If your kid’s bedroom has outdated flooring, it might be time to switch it out for new flooring. For children of any age, carpeting tends to be preferred, especially older children. It is soft and comfortable and since small children enjoy sitting and playing on the ground, it’s ideal. Hardwood flooring is also acceptable, but with babies or toddlers, you will need plenty of area rugs to add cushion. This adds to the cost of your flooring remodel. With carpeting, you can spend less money and it’s also easier to install on your own than most hardwood flooring is. Upgrading the flooring in their bedroom creates a safe and comfortable bedroom.

Bunk Beds

 

If you have more than one kid sharing a room, it can be difficult deciding how to arrange and decorate their room with sufficient storage and work areas. Luckily, there are many options available. Of course one popular option is by using bunk beds; they are using the height of the room to your advantage leaving for more floor and room space for a shared desk and other play areas. You can also find bunk beds for single children for especially small rooms where your child will sleep on the top bunk, and underneath is empty space for a desk to do homework and play games on. This is a great option for a small bedroom.

Upgrade the Walls

If you’re looking to remodel the decorative aspects on your kids’ bedroom, start with the wall. This is the easiest thing to start with that will end up costing you only a small investment and can be completed in one short weekend. You can either paint the walls a new color, or add wallpapering. Your children might also like a theme bedroom with stenciling or vinyl wall decals to be fun and colorful.
