Whether they’re tots or teenagers, with a little imagination you can transform your kids’ bedrooms into fantastic spaces where they’ll want to play, hang out – and even do their homework. From upcycling furniture to having fun with lighting it’s time to get creative.
A child’s bedroom is the ideal place to create a little magic and encourage personal expression – and teaching children how to upcycle encourages practical skills, recycling and problem-solving. Vinyl decal stickers can be used to personalise space easily.
