Try painting half of the wall, just one wall, the ceiling, or even try stripes. Be creative.

For a big refresh, go bold with color or pattern. For small budgets, go with a smaller accent rug under seating.

Light it Up Replace that builder grade ceiling light for something you will want people to notice. Good lighting will stay timeless and still look great as your child grows up.

Pattern-Filled Walls Wallpaper can make a big statement in a room. If you are scared of permanent wallpaper, give temporary wallpaper a chance. For small budgets, use temporary wallpaper on just one of the walls and make it the focal point in the room.

Take a Seat A room is instantly more inviting when there are places to sit, and a kid’s room is no exception. Add a small play table with chairs, a coffee table with stools or poufs or an accent chair.

Dress Up the Bed The bed is the main piece of furniture in a room so make it look special. Replace the whole bedding set for a brand new look or simply replace the throw pillows or the comforter for a quick and easy refresh.
