If you have a child who’s in awe of large red fire engines, this theme is a must. Delight them by transforming their bedroom into a homage to the emergency services. Here’s a little inspiration to help you get started:
Top tips for transforming your child’s bedroom:
1) Wall colour: Don’t be tempted to paint your child’s walls in bright fire-engine red (no matter how much he pleads!) The colour will be difficult to paint over as his taste matures, or should you decide to the sell the house. Instead, opt for neutral walls and choose bright red accessories (such as curtains and lamps). These can be changed easily to match new themes, as needed.
2) Fire engine bed: While a fire engine bed may be every little boy’s dream, it’s probably not be a realistic option if you have two or three children in the house. Buying a number of themed beds might be a stretch financially. Instead, decorate ‘ordinary’ wooden beds with themed decals. These can be removed and replaced as your children grow older.
3) Wall mural: A large wall mural will help to bring the heme to life, especially if you are not buying a fire truck bed. These bright, bold wall murals help to stimulate children’s imaginations, transforming a dull room into a fun space to play.
