Ralph Snyder, vice president of home design for Kohl’s offers this advice: “If I were to recommend one update to a room this fall, it would be to add color,” said Ralph Snyder, vice president of home design for Kohl’s. “Blues and greens are especially trend-right this season and easy to incorporate to your interior with a colorful bed set. For those looking for something a little less overwhelming – mix neutrals like grey with a pop of bright yellow.”
I took his advice and gave my six year old son’s bedroom a makeover. I love this Jumping Beans 7 piece Full Size Stripe Bedding Set — the colors are perfect for a boy of any age so it can grow with him. The sheets and pillow cases have stars on them and the coordination pieces are “space” themed but since the comforter is plain bold stripes, we can choose another theme. We haven’t gotten that far in the makeover but plan on adding some sports themed wall art.
I liked Ralph’s idea of mixing neutrals with a pop of bright color so I started about by painting the bedroom walls grey. If you’re looking for a big impact on a budget, paint is a great place to start! A gallon of paint only costs around $20 and can really change the look of a room. The second best budget-friendly purchase for a bedroom makeover is a new bedding set. Since the bed is the focal point of the room, the bedding really stands out. This 7-piece bed set is on sale right now for only $79.99 or you can get the twin for $59.99. (Save more: 20% off with Kohl’s charge and code FALLSTYLE20 or 15% off with code PUMPKIN through 10/5).
These two things alone completely changed the look of Jackson’s bedroom for under $100. If you have more wiggle room in your budget, consider adding some of the coordinating items:
- Jumping Beans Window Panels
- Jumping Beans Rocket Plush Throw
- Jumping Beans Striped Rug
- Jumping Beans Start Storage Ottoman
We had already purchased some curtains elsewhere but they are very similar to the ones Kohl’s sells. Here’s a before and after picture of the room:
It’s hard to see the color of the walls because of the lighting but it matches the grey in the comforter really nicely. We’re really happy with the way it turned out and I’m hoping it will inspire my son to keep his room clean!
