Kids Room Decoration Ideas – A Guest Post!

I’ve been on a pretty big home decor kick these days. From painting to re-doing color schemes and even changing out hardware on our doors – my focus has been on things like this.

But there’s one area of home decoration that I have NO experience on. Well, at least no experience YET. That area would be kids rooms!

Thankfully, your friend and mine, Heather Roberts, is here to give us some ideas for decorating kids rooms! Let’s see what she has to say…

Kids Room Decoration Ideas

Reconstruction and redecoration of kids rooms are a serious challenge if you’ve never done this before in your life. There is much to be desired in terms of practical matters above all, but there is also the need to keep the aesthetic side of the job looking amazing, as well. You would need to consider the ever-changing tastes of your child as they grow up, so that will also require changes in furniture and decoration that mirror the changes your child goes through. Kids will grow up pretty fast and their furniture needs to grow up with them as well! The tips ahead will give you some ideas you can use to make it happen:

6 Tips for Keeping Your Bedroom Clean and Tidy – A Guest Post!

I’ve always been big on keeping my bedroom clean. Growing up, there was just something about coming home from school to a clean room. (That, plus the fact that my mom would clean my room FOR me if I didn’t keep it clean, and I couldn’t have THAT!)

As I got older, my bedroom was the place I studied and I came to relax after a long day of work. After I got married, it was even more important to keep our room clean, comfortable and a place of sanctuary, really.

So when professional blogger Sofia Lewis contacted me to see if I’d be interesting in publishing her article on “Keeping Your Bedroom Clean and Tidy”, I thought it was a fantastic idea!

So, without further ado…here’s Sofia!

A clean and tidy bedroom should be part of your daily house cleaning routine. You will find that it is fairly easy to get your whole house feeling it’s best if you pay attention to the details, and don’t shirk from tidying and cleaning the house as you pass through it, when you have time. Domestic cleaning is not about spending ages on one day of the week scrubbing and mopping, and if it is for you, then you should get a professional cleaner to come in. The fact is that a little maintenance every day can go a long way towards ensuring that your domestic cleaning is something that does not really bother you that much in the long run. Having a contract cleaner is another way to take the pressure off, but that is not an option that is available to all budgets, and it can be more satisfying to do these things yourself.

Have a look over the following bedroom cleaning tips, to see if any of them help you, and be aware that these tips are to be part of a light routine, rather than a deep cleaning one, so there is no upholstery cleaning nor any carpet cleaning involved.
