Plan your child's activities in the room and make space for sleeping, studying, playing and storage. If the room is small, storage and sleep area can be clubbed together. You can have the bed on top of a wardrobe or have pull out bed to store toys and clothes below. Keep maximum space open for the kid to play and move around. The study table can go on a wall next to a window so that ample daylight can be used while reading.

Wall painting and decals

Make the room a whole lot of fun for the kid by painting characters on one of the walls yourselves or by hiring a professional. Involve your child in selecting themes or animals of his choice. Paint using bright colours. You can also make a stencil by using a thick plastic sheet and cutting designs out of it for ease of painting. Stick the stencil on the wall using tape and fill in colours.

The easiest way to make the room lively is decals. Decals are wall stickers which are available is toy shops or online. Just order your favourite ones and peel and stick them. You can keep changing the decals as the child grows.
