Whilst a children's room should be both stylish and fun, it also needs to be practical and comfortable as well - which is why our selection of children's bedroom decorating ideas will have your kids excited, but also won't break the bank!

Storage is Key

When it comes to children decor, the first thing that comes to mind is storage. It's really important when looking to redecorate a kids room, to think about how much storage you will need (hint, it's always more than you think!). Storage boxes and storage units can make for great ways to store toys, bedding and other bedroom necessities, but also makes them easy to access whenever you need them. This Target 4 Drawer Storage box is a funky way to store your child's laundry and other knick knacks, whilst this Children's Storage Unit is a great way to keep books, toys and other everyday essentials neatly stacked away. It features multiple compartments too, which means you'll have storage space for everything! Quilt Covers & Pillows

If you're looking for a quick and affordable way to change up the look of your kids room, then do it with new quilt covers and bedding. Kid's quilt covers are a great way to bring a new and fun look to any childs room. Find a variety of styles from both Kmart and Target, such as this Quade Quilt Cover set and this Coverlet. No matter the size of your child's bed, it's always a great idea to get a doona and quilt cover that is one size up from the size of the bed (i.e if the bed is a single, then get a double bed cover). This makes the dressing of the bed look a little more stylish, and also provides your child with more comfort! Adding throws and cushions such as these from Big W can also make for cheap styling options too.

If your child is younger, then this Kmart Table and Chair set is great for inspiring fun and creativity. The set includes 1 table and 2 chairs, and the simple design suits any bedroom. Alternatively, if your child is older, then this Target Faux Fur beanbag might be a little more suitable. With its fun on trend faux fur design, fill this cover with bean-bag-beans, and your child can plonk it anywhere around their room and sink back into comfort!
