Design tips for transforming a kid's room

Creating a theme bedroom or play space doesn't have to cost a lot of time or money. Here are some things to consider before turning that blah bedroom into a child's castle:

  • Establish a budget — and stick to it.
  • Try to incorporate existing furniture, and shop discount stores for linens and accessories.
  • Be creative. Turn an old table into a desk. Frame magazine pictures to match the new decor.
  • Think about the future. Can certain components of the new room be used in a different way later on? If the answer is yes, you'll get more out of your investment.
