Elegant Ikea Childrens Bedroom Ideas

Children and adolescents are very territorial about their bedrooms. Therefore, I must approach the idea of redecorating my daughters’ room with little sensitivity. 1 gallon of paint, some IKEA shelves, a trip to Wal-Mart and 2 hard days of solid work and my daughter’s room turned into “The Great Teens Room.” This is what we do. My daughter is very attached to every paper clipping and mini eraser in her bedroom. For that reason we can not really clean right off the bat. Instead we put everything in a clear recycled bag so she could see that we did not throw the stuff away and pulled out all the small items from her room. Now we have some space to work. Our goal was to remove all the pink in her room so I chose the wispy green wall paint from Benjamin Moore.
We bought the most expensive gallon (40 $) because 1 coat did the trick over the whole room. It was worth the dough. Half the room at one time, we removed furniture from the wall and painted the walls. This took about 3 hours and then we all sat down for lunch. Next is furniture and shelves. My daughter has an open wall rack for giving easy access to her toys. Children need easy access or they will forget what they have and will only collect dust. We added 4 more shelves because the stuffed animals needed a house from the floor.
We have 2 simple dressers and 1 plain white bed which, with a little paint, has been able to grow with it. We moved the furniture around and started carrying the small items back. This is when the fun begins. Bag by bag we sort every Polly’s pocket doll, American Girl accessories, and a piece of craft paper. We categorize it and put its contents into the IKEA trash can with a large label on the outside. It takes up most of our time because we give our daughters a chance to decide what to stay and what does not.

This gives him a sense of control over situations that otherwise destroy his entire existence. In the end she has a more mature and efficient room so she can keep it clean. Here are some quick tips to do the same for your precious tween:
A.Ceep they are involved – It is hard to see someone through your personal things and ask to throw them away. If your child feels like they are part of this process, it will run faster and without resistance.
B.Paint is your best friend – sometimes a fresh coat of paint is all you need to change the room. Choose a mature color that easily matches everything (beige, light blue denim, etc.) and let your tween decorate it with things they love. We bought Max a big bulletin board so he can handle his friend’s photos and concert tickets.
C. Children become children – Teens have a hard time. They are not teenagers and they are not small children. They want a certain independence but they still want to be kept occasionally. Their rooms should reflect this double standard. Help put their little toy’s play in a mature fashion or help hide it when their friend arrives.
D.As always, be creative – We cut old t-shirts and made curtains out of them. I also painted some decals on the front of the drawer so they look more mature. Whatever your special talent, use it to your little one’s benefit.
