New Year, New Room

New Year is the best time to think about making a few kids room changes. Whether you are keen to redo your little one’s room completely, with a whole new look, or you are simply aiming to spruce things up for the year ahead, there are a number of ways to bring about change as we enter a brand new year.

Keep reading to get our tips on how to create an all new kids room in 2018.

How to Plan a Brand New Kids Room

Some of the ways that you could change up your kids room include the following:

Try a subtle change.

You don’t need to go overboard to enjoy the power of change. In fact, neutral and desaturated colours can be the easiest to implement, as they go with other colours without the risk of clashes. Look for soft shades of neutral, blush, washed out blue and green, grey, and white. Be careful not to combine too many colours, even if you are using soft shades. Instead, decide on a primary colour scheme and then choose pieces carefully with that scheme in mind.

Create an urban jungle.

The botanic look continues to be popular in kid and adult rooms alike. You can add a touch of the jungle to your little one’s space with a carefully chosen statement rug, such as this cotton Lorena Canals Monstera Leaf Rug. This rug is fully washable, making it easy to clean. Combine with bright curtains, fun jungle print wallpaper or bedding, or touches of green, yellow and orange to get the most from this fun look.

Aim for high contrast.

The monochrome look is also showing no signs of losing favour this year. This look is simple, elegant and surprisingly practical. Look for Scandinavian style furniture that is neutral and simple in design. Pair this with black and white bedding and decor, such as a monochrome blanket or a B&W Berber Rug from Lorena Canals. You can bring in a small touch of colour here and there with a bold cushion or a funky, bright artwork.

Don’t forget the small details.

Finally, don’t forget about the little details that can often make all the difference. You don’t need to do a full makeover to enjoy a change. Instead, stick to classic, timeless furniture pieces that can be updated with a few simple decor changes. Look for cute items such as our adorable Play Stools by Flexa that add a pop of colour without the need for any major changes.
