Decorating your child’s bedroom is a huge milestone for parent and child alike; it’s an experience that stands out in our childhood and a moment that we reflect back on as adults many years down the line, so why not make that experience all the more special by making it a project that you can embark upon together?

Leading paint brand Dulux, via their new Kids’ Bedrooms focused campaign, is encouraging all parents to collaborate with their child and involve them in the process of decorating their room. Not only is it a fabulous means of family bonding and spending time together, but it’s a brilliant developmental activity for your child, fuelling their creativity and improving their confidence, decision-making abilities and providing an excellent outlet for creative and self-expression.

And it’s not just Dulux championing a collaborative approach to decorating, as 92% of kids confess they’d spend more time enjoying their bedrooms if they could help decide how it was decorated. Furthermore, Child Developmental Psychologist, Dr. Sam Wass, is a huge advocate of the paint brand’s campaign and supporting research, stating that:

‘The bedroom is the first real, permanent thing that children can influence… Involving a child helps them to establish their own inner space and the image that they want to project to others. And for parents, having a chance to work together with their children can really help to establish a stable, respectful relationship.’

The research also found that decorating their room was more important to kids than their first day at school or losing their first tooth!

Aware of the perceived challenges of bedroom-decorating with your little one, Dulux has curated a whole range of content to help you and your little one through every stage of the decorating journey. Available here you can find:
