Girls Bedroom Decorating Ideas

by lou16

Creating a girls bedroom can be a lot of fun and very rewarding when you see their face light up as they enter their own special kingdom for the first time.

As mum to a girl I love looking at different girl themed bedroom ideas and there’s certainly a lot to choose from.

You can go totally overboard creating a perfect little space for your favourite girl or you can just add a few accents to make her room extra special.

The first thing you have to do is decide on the theme you want in your daughter's bedroom and then just start 'creating'.

How to Create A Gorgeous Girls Bedroom

From Toddlers to Teens

Personally I think choosing a color and just painting the walls creates a good canvas which can be easily adapted to a range of different styles.   The flooring can just be a plain neutral carpet which will allow you to add rugs for extra appeal.   Next is the bed and while there are some gorgeous beds to choose from if you get a fairly plain white or wooden colored bed then you can add the appropriate bedding as your girl grows and you won’t have to replace the bed constantly!

Now you’ve got the basics sorted it’s time to get creative and make her room special and to do that you need to decide on the theme you want to use.

You can create countless different themes from Lady bugs to Butterflies, Fairies to Princesses and let’s not forget all of the licensed characters.   I’ve created a number ‘how to create the perfect xxxx bedroom’ articles for all of the Disney Princesses which you can check out below if your child is besotted with the Disney Princesses.

More Decorating Ideas for a Girls Bedroom

Little girls love lots of different things which means that there’s lots of ideas for girls bedrooms for you to choose from including fairies, butterflies and ladybugs so let’s have a look at how you can pull together some great themed bedrooms.

Starting with a basic painted wall you can add interest with wall stickers, posters and other artwork that features whatever it is your child loves like dragonflies or Barbie dolls.

You can use window treatments if you like or just add some window stickers to the glass and leave the curtains and/or blinds rather plain.

The biggest focal point in any bedroom is the bed and this is where you should spend the money for the biggest impact so if you’re on a tight budget just get a duvet cover set in the room’s theme or a throw blanket to put over the bed.

Extra touches can be made with the use of light switch covers, lamps, rugs, jewelry boxes, alarm clocks and, if room permits, other bedroom furniture such as a desk, table and chairs, dressing table etc.

Let’s look at a few themed bedrooms in more detail.
