How to Choose Kids Bedding that Reflects their Personality

One of the best ways for youngsters to start showing their personality and the things they are interested in, is through adding some unique and fun kids bedding to the decor of their room. This is also a good way to help the child start to feel some "ownership" of their room, giving them a sense that it is their special place and a sense of added responsibility for it, with regard to keeping it tidy. For kids who might be outgrowing their baby furniture sets they started life with, decorating with kids bedding accessories can really update the room and help give that furniture a completely different feel.

When it comes to buying kids bedding, you will soon discover that there are more choices on the market than you might have realized. Just looking through the many different themes and styles of bedding accessories can easily overwhelm both kids and parents. However, a wise parent who knows their child's interests and tastes, will not just hand a child a catalog to chose from. Instead, they will select a few items from which the child can choose. Otherwise, the parent will either never get the child to make a decision, or in a few weeks the child will want one of the other sets of bedding that he or she saw.

Even though it will set you back less than replacing furniture, buying quality kids bedding is still not inexpensive and can add up to a pretty penny. If possible, you might want to direct your child to choices in bedding accessories that will still work for them even when the next big fad hits. However, it seems that many children today can be headstrong and don't easily settle for something they don't want.

In these circumstances it could be a wise move to seek out budget friendly stores that specialize in such things as discount baby furniture, discount bedding and bedding accessories. Quite often, you will find that a baby store online will carry a broad range of bedding for kids of all ages, and this can save you a bundle too.

For a girls bedroom, one of the more popular choices are the bedding sets that also include a canopy. This is a nice touch that makes a little girl feel especially pampered and like a little princess. Combined with frilly pillow shams, a soft and warm comforter and matching window treatments, your daughter will love her room and may never want to leave her magical kingdom.

Other popular themes in bedding for girls are design sets, such as Betty Boop, Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, Dora the Explorer, Tinkerbell and the Care Bears. Of course these are just a few of the hundreds of choices that you will be able to find to help decorate. For the boys, some popular styles include Spiderman, Bob the Builder, The Incredibles, GI Joe, Hot Wheels, Superman and Thomas the Tank Engine.

For teenagers, denim is a popular and sensible choice in bedding. It has the advantage of being casual and yet it can be dressed up as well, just like a good pair of jeans. Denim bedding is also durable, will wear well and it is easy to use as a base which can easily be custom tailored to the child's tastes with bedding accessories, decorative pillows, curtains and a valance. A denim comforter also coordinates well with many different colors and styles of sheets, such as solid colors or patterns.

When choosing the kids bedding for your child's room, it is important to strike the right balance between parental guidance and giving the child some decision making input, as to how their room is going to end up. It is a good idea to narrow down the choices so you don't overwhelm them, but still allow them to feel that they had some power in designing their own space.
