A kid's room should be a reflection of their personality. Some of the most creative, funkiest ideas come from the mind of a child. Children and parents can enjoy working together to create a funky bedroom using paint, artwork and accessories. Most of these design ideas are inexpensive, and can be changed as the child grows into the teen years, keeping their funky theme alive for years to come.

Paint Ideas

Paint is one of the best ways to make a statement in your child's room. A great way to get started is for the parent to select a few appropriate colours that they can live with, and then have their child pick from those colours so that he feels involved. Let him pick more than one colour. One idea is to paint the wall that the bed is on one colour to create the look of an extended headboard, and then to paint the other walls a complementary colour. Another idea is to add stripes or polka dots to the room. It is always important to keep in mind that paint can easily be changed.

Original Art Work

Get out your water colour and canvas boards and let your child paint. Make sure to get real art canvases at an art store, it will make a difference. Your child can make two or three unique pictures. The art can be splashes of colours or figures. Make sure to include colours that will go with the decor of the room. When the art work is done, have all the art worked framed in the same style and colour frame. The frame is what is going to showcase the art work, so make it a nice one. These art pieces can then be hung in her room and cherished for years to come.

Decorative Accessories

Decorative accessories can change a boring room into a funky room. Area rugs are a great place to start; there are so many bright, textured fun area rugs available. An area rug can define the space in the centre of the room and cover up floor or carpet that is dull and boring. Lamps and lamp shades can be purchased or made to be funky by adding beads or other fringe or fabric to the shade. Valances, curtains, bedding, pillows, bean bags, these accessories can all jazz up and change the look of his room.
