- Consider items from other rooms. This is probably the most cost-effective option that exists – all you’re doing is taking something that doesn’t work in one room, and putting it in another room that DOES work.
- Older kids might like an upholstered headboard. Not only are they cheap and easy to make, they last a long time, and they give the room a “polished” look without looking too “grown up.”
- Have your child exercise his/her creativity and create an “art gallery” in his/her room. The possibilities are endless: you can incorporate things such as mirrors, printable art from free sites, and even your child’s own drawings into his/her own “gallery”!
- Try reupholstering some old furniture, instead of throwing it away or giving it away. A simple switch in fabric can sometimes make all the difference in the world.
- Get creative with the storage options. Instead of spending a lot of money on expensive storage options, visit your local dollar store or salvage shop to get some design ideas.
- For younger children, chalkboards and chalkboard paint is your best friend. Even painting a small stripe of chalkboard onto your child’s walls can foster creativity, make messes easy to clean up, and creates a whole new look for a room.
- Customize a lamp! You can find relatively inexpensive lamps at your local big box stores.
