How to Decorate your Child’s Bedroom the Affordable Way

What parent wouldn’t want to give their child an extravagant bedroom? Not every parent can afford to give their child their dream room. However, there are ways to give it some character.  Here are some tips on how to decorate your child’s room without breaking the bank.

 The Toy Box

      The toy box or toy chest can definitely be a bedroom fashion statement. Let’s face it, kids can be messy. Having somewhere to put all of their toys is a major advantage. On the other hand, it can also add a lot of character to the bedroom if you buy the right one. It doesn’t have to be a plain wooden chest. Try different colors and designs. If you’re doing a bedroom with a flower theme, then consider buying a chest that has flowers on it or if you’re doing an Army theme, then consider doing a camo pattern. Toy chests run anywhere from about $50 to $200. Still a little out of your price range? Not to worry. For about $50 you can alway buy a plain wooden or white chest and decorate it yourself. Here are a few adorable toy chests to get those ideas rolling…
