5 Fun & Easy Kids' Room Projects For Labor Day Weekend

Posted by UPW on

It’s time to get the kids’ room ready for fall and spruce it up for the new school year! Take advantage of all the great Labor Day Kids' Bedroom Furniture Sales and make sure you get the most out of the lingering warm weather by making the kids’ bedroom comfortable and inviting. These fun and easy projects will help you make the most of the upcoming long weekend.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

1- Spruce Up Your Kids' Room

Kids love bunk beds and loft beds for their space-creating powers. Sleeping in a cozy lower bunk area or high up in the top bunk can both be thrilling prospects.

                  White Loft Bed with Desk  

Loft beds offer a variety of options that include a futon below, extra storage, or even an organized and convenient desk area. High quality kids’ bedroom furniture makes a room look polished and put together. Kids that have problems staying organized may simply need a few extra drawers or an additional bookcase, and now is an excellent time to add new furniture items to your household.



2- Paint the Room or an Accent Wall

Nothing injects life and excitement into a kids’ room like a fresh coat of paint. For the daring, a bright and cheerful accent wall in coordinating or even contrasting color is the perfect weekend project.

If your child asks for a color that seems too brave for your taste remember this; it’s just paint! Agreeing to paint just one wall in their color of choice as opposed to the entire room is a wonderful compromise for many families.

3- Create a homework Corner

While a new kids’ computer desk, coordinating book shelves, and a fun lamp may not bring your kids’ grades up immediately, creating a homework corner to facilitate a quiet and peaceful study environment is a step in the right direction.

When choosing a computer desk, talk to your child about how they like to study. A kid that prefers a slim tablet and a pile of pillows on the floor has very different needs than a child that wants a full keyboard, good lighting, two large computer monitors, and room to spread out.

When creating a homework corner, remember to include ample space for storage and room to display your kids’ favorite pictures, toys, and mementos.

4- Simplify & Organize

No matter which weekend project you resolve to complete, adding an hour to simplify and organize your child’s room will make both of you feel better about the space. If your child agrees, have them leave this project to the grown-ups.

Start with a trash bag and pick up any random papers and obvious garbage from the floor and furniture surfaces. Next, bring in two large cardboard boxes and choose some things to donate to charity that are no longer of interest. A large collection of stuffed animals can easily be reduced without causing too much stress for some kids. For others, excess clothing that they’ll never wear can go to charity.

Use plastic bins to hold like items. For example, one bin could hold art supplies, and another could hold Legos. Categorizing items this way makes clean-up easier on everyone.


A kids’ night stand with storage makes reaching essential items easy before bed. Make sure there’s enough room in the bedroom dresser to hold common go-to clothing items. A kids’ chest of drawers offers storage for blankets and favorite toys and may also provide extra seating.

5- Create a kids' Play space or Playroom

If you have an unused space or small room that you can dedicate to kids’ play space, you may want to spend some time over the coming weekend putting together a playroom.

Every playroom is different, and hopefully designed according to the child’s wants and needs. Low tables, smaller scale furniture, and lots of storage are a great place to start. Pay attention to flooring, as well. A soft rug creates the ideal platform for a cozy reading nook.

Helping your kids stay organized, keep up with their homework, and sleep well in their own beds is a challenge for every parent. Taking some time this weekend to plan a project that helps you reach those goals will be satisfying and help everyone feel just a bit more “at home.”
