How often to redecorate a room?

My parents didn’t let us redecorate, but they also decorated everything in a kind of timeless way that had personality but wasn’t very obviously for any specific age (ie, no bright primary coloured walls or movie/cartoon characters on the wall, etc). I don’t have kids yet, but I think I’ll do the same.

As a kid I think I had roughly four different stages that my room went through. My mom was a SAHM, but she did all the painting, made things herself, etc. I loved being able to have a say in my room and it allowed me to exhibit my personality. Made the room my own, I guess.

My girls are 5 & 6 and they have had enough different rooms.  They choose to share a room and this time they wanted a sky, clouds, rainbow, and flowers.  We painted their room sky blue.  My fiance built loft beds with built in desks underneath and painted them white for the clouds.  They have a rainbow and flowers plus a sun.  I am going to be changing it some and writing out the words to “You Are My Sunshine” as a border along the top.  I have always sang that song to them and it is special to us.  Plus it fits the theme too.

I changed my kids’ rooms whenever they requested it. When they were little, I changed them when I got bored with them, and that could have been every 2 years. Paint and new bedding is easy and gives a room new life, so I did it pretty often.

I never did theme rooms for them, ever, but did go with color themes. My oldest loved her black, white and red room (her request) up until she was 15 or so, so that room stayed the same for probably 4 or 5 years except for new bedding.

I’d just go ahead and do it since you’re home, especially if they want it. I never even discussed it first with mine, as I always did all the painting anyway.
