Home Improvement Projects For Those With Kids

You probably spend a lot of time and money improving the look and value of your home. One room that is not usually the first to come to mind is the kids room. A kids room should be fun, unleashing their inner creativity. There are easy ways that you can make this happen with a little creativity and guidance. This article will give you some great ideas to make your kids room one that they will absolutely love.

Do you have a little girl who loves princesses? If so then why not paint them a giant castle on the wall. Paint solid purple on the wall first. Once this dries use painters tape to outline the shape of a castle. Use a pink paint to fill in the castle, using a paint roller. Mix the pink paint with some white paint to create a lighter pink color. Use a sponge that has deep ridges to give the effect of bricks and sponge paint over the castle. Do the same thing with the purple paints and texture the sky around the castle. Paint a door and flags on the castle to help it look authentic. Purchase easily removable princess wall decals and place them in the castle windows.

Tip: Windows will look much better if worn blinds are replaced. Over time, blinds become faded by the sun or damaged by little hands and paws or other mishaps.

Does your child love to be outside? If you have a little nature lover in the family than bring the outdoors into their room. Begin by painting the walls a sky blue color. Use a deep green to paint grass along the bottom of the walls, and stems for flowers. Add clouds, flowers and birds to the walls to really give it that outside feel. Use a corner of the room to paint a large tree with colorful leaves. Ask your child for their input. Glow in the dark stars and painting constellations on the ceiling is both educational and fun. You can use small sticks from outside to weave together a small birds nest and secure it to the tree.

Giving your child an underwater room is not that hard at all. Paint all of the walls a solid ocean blue color. Use bright colors to paint schools of fish, sea turtles, dolphins and starfish on the wall. Use sponge painting to create coral reefs and green yarn for seaweed. Paint brown sand along the bottom of the walls, and add in some real sand to give it texture. Paint a sky with a sun and clouds on the ceiling, and a brown carpet will give the impression your little one is under the sea. Use bright colored pillows and accessories. Ask your little one for fun ideas that they might have.

Home improvement projects can be a lot of fun, especially when the project involves your kids. Giving your child a room they will love is priceless and something you can both enjoy doing together. Use the ideas from this article to get you started, and once you do you will discover how fun home improvement projects really can be.
