How To Create The Perfect Bedroom-Den For Your Kids This Summer

We all want our kids to be as happy as possible, but if you live in a major city, you probably can’t let them play outside unsupervised during the summer. This means you need to spend some time making their bedroom fun and exciting. Luckily, this is a very simple job, and anyone can do it in a single weekend. With that in mind, today I’m going to give you some handy tips and ideas that could help you inspire you. Obviously, you’ll want to adjust my suggestions based on your child’s own personal interests, but this won’t be difficult at all.

Over the last ten years, I’ve designed and created some pretty amazing bedrooms for my own three kids, so I’ve definitely got the experience needed to make me an authority on the subject. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to spend thousands to achieve the desired effect, and you don’t need to employ experts to complete the work. I guarantee your children will appreciate it more if they know one of their parents has put their heart and soul into the design.

Bring The Outdoors Inside With Plantlife

Many people think putting plants in kids bedrooms is a bad idea, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Not only will greenery provide your children with cleaner air whilst they’re playing, but it will also teach them a lot about looking after other living organisms. Of course, you should probably get them something that flowers, as this will act as a reward for their efforts.

Create Feature Walls Using Custom Wallpaper

These days, there’s no need to settle for the same paper everyone else buys, as there are many companies around you specialise in custom wallpaper murals. Perhaps your children are fascinated by animals or the jungle. Either way, you’ll be able to source some completely original murals based on any interesting images you can find. Alternatively, maybe your child would like a huge family photograph to cover this space. This is easily achievable using the same innovative firms.

Build A Hideout

No bedroom den would be complete without a suitable hideout. You can create one of these in many different ways, but the most popular method involves purchasing a raised bed or bunk bed and turning the bottom area into a secret room where your kids can hide. Remember when you were young, and you’d go out building dens in and around trees? This is basically the same thing.

Look For Alternative Flooring Solutions

While you could, obviously, just buy a rug of some kind, those with a little more creativity and imagination might like to try out some of the quirkier options. If you have a quick look online, you’ll find carpets, rugs and mats that are designed to look like outdoor grass. Your kids are sure to love this, as it will make them feel like they’re on an adventure.

So long as you utilise those suggestions and apply some common sense, your children will love the bedroom den you create for them. Just remember not to go too mad, as you’ll probably want to sell the property at some point in the future, and anything too eccentric could negatively affect the level of offers you receive.

Have fun!
