Ways to Decorate a Kid’s Bedroom on a Budget

Getting that new look for your child’s room can add up over time. It’s important that you find a way to decorate your kid’s bedroom without breaking the budget. I want to share 5 ways to decorate a kid's bedroom, while still keeping some money in the bank.


Hand-me-down Furniture

A lot of people decorate their child’s room with the furniture they had as a child. Furniture can always be repainted to make it look a certain way or you can go with the vintage look. Using furniture you’ve had since your childhood is one way to decorate a bedroom on a budget.

Head to a Restore

There are places called “re-stores” out there. The basic concept of these stores is to sell second hand items. A lot of these second hand items are donated to the re-store, so the store gets full profit and can help others with the cash earned.

Get Creative

It’s easy to pay big bucks for an item when you are going for a big name like Spiderman or Frozen. Stick to a theme that isn’t a big name and watch how much money you can save. Go for a general princess themed room or a universal super hero room. You’d be surprised at how those savings truly add up!

Thrift Shopping

One way to decorate a room on a budget is to make it a scavenger hunt at thrift stores. It may take a little while to put all the pieces of the room together, but it will be totally worth it. Create a list of items you want for the bedroom and then take several weeks to find the items. Thrift shopping is one way you can decorate a kid’s bedroom, while still staying on budget.

It’s All About the Color Scheme

It’s true that what is in a bedroom can make or break the look, but the paint job is what can really make the room look golden. A killer color scheme is one way to stay on budget while decorating a bedroom. You can save on paint by buying it when it’s on sale and stocking up or you can head to a store that sells used paint (you might need some luck on that last one).

Nothing feels better than giving your child the bedroom they’ve always wanted, however, it’s important to stay on budget. These 5 tips will not only help you stay on budget, but they will help you give your child the room they could only picture in their dreams.
