Imaginative Design: Themed Kids Bedrooms
Childhood is a magical time and one great way to encourage your kids’ imaginations and inspire their dreams is to create a themed bedroom. No matter their age or your budget, you can create a room to ignite their interest.
Start Small – Accessorize
If your budget is tight or you know their current phase won’t last, focus on accessories -- consider comforter sets, an area rug, stuffed animals or character statues, and wall hangings.
