It’s no child’s play

Create an Underwater Adventure in Your Child’s Room

Decorating a child’s room can be a challenge. You want to create a room that reflects your child’s growth and personality throughout the years, without breaking the piggy bank each time they have a new whim.

Winnie the Pooh is a popular theme in kids’ rooms right now so are Barbie and anything having to do with the ocean. When Disney’s Finding Nemo first came out, almost every parent wanted to use fish as a theme in their kid’s rooms. But it’s really nothing new. It’s a tried-and-true theme.

There are dozens of ways to decorate a child’s room using an ocean theme.  You can make it as simple or as complicated as you like. Painting rooms in gradients is pretty popular right now. If you decide to go for this look, start by painting the top of the room light blue and adding darker shades as you go down. Anybody who can put a paintbrush in their hand can blend one shade of blue to another. Then you can use stencils, borders or stickers to add fish and crabs, completing the look.

If you don’t want all the work, murals are a great way to go. Going beyond the walls, you can add ceiling fans and lampshades covered with a fishing net and sheets decorated with fish and other nautical themes. The sea draws everybody in.  No child would dislike an under-the-sea theme in their room.
