Tips and tricks

  1. Think ahead... kids grow fast and tastes change rapidly. So make sure your plan incorporates options for the future.

  2. Latest trends can be incorporated using cushions, posters, wallpaper borders and toys that can be easily be changed as fads do.

  3. Check out what others have done in the past in the online Resene Decorating inspiration gallery, and use their ideas as inspiration.

  4. Kids tend to spend a lot of time on the floor, so opt for soft flooring where possible or ensure rugs have non-slip underlay. Avoid anything too light in colour as the occasional accident is bound to occur!

  5. Walls and doors will also be in for a workout so opt for a washable finish, such as Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen waterborne enamel to make cleaning up marks easy.

  6. Always try out the colour scheme you plan to use with Resene testpots just to make sure it’s what you want before you start paining the walls.

  7. There are a lots of great effects you can create using effects finishes, stamps, sponges, and general arts and crafts activities to add wall art, and more to the finished room, so let your imagination run wild.
