When it comes to your kids' rooms, you might be hesitant to devote yourself too wholly to any one design scheme. After all, kids grow and their interests change in the blink of an eye. One year it's Elmo, the next it's Dora the Explorer and before you know it, they'll have posters of some pop-rock group you've never heard of gracing their walls. In the meantime, you want to make sure their rooms are filled with stylish and durable decor, starting with quality hardwood floors, like the boards in Anderson Floors' Lone Star collection. This line of flooring features gorgeous hickory planks that are sure to last as long as the rugged, Western character that informed them.
Meanwhile, if you're looking for some great kids' room themes that won't require enormous makeovers, keep these suggestions in mind. With a few decals, stencils and carefully chosen color schemes, these won't break the bank and are stylish enough to last your kid well through elementary school!
Whether your theme is a farm, zoo or the African safari, it's common sense that kids love animals. Even just sticking to a variety of dog breeds is a cute and fun idea for a room motif.
Outer space adventure
Nothing fascinates both kids and adults in equal measure so much as space. It's so big, fun and mind-boggling, after all! And there's nothing so satisfying as turning out the lights at night to have a constellation of glow-in-the-dark stars light up above your head!
Around the world
Your little one is still a few years from global travel, perhaps, but that doesn't mean he or she can't daydream of far off lands and the adventures to be had there. Maps - old, new or imaginary - are always easy to find and make for great wall adornments. With the right design scheme, a geographical theme can be a ton of fun.
Naturally, nothing says that kids' room themes have to be extremely complicated or structured to be fun. In fact, decor and design website Apartment Therapy points out that one of the biggest trends in kids' rooms right now are simply polka dots. As the source points out, polka dots are more than just classic, they're also gender neutral and ideal for any age!
