Let cabinet hardware the simple room theme solution for you.

Decorating your kids' room can be a tidal wave of choices and a seemingly endless barrage of complaints (no matter what you choose.) What's more, prices seem to be climbing by the hour on hot items such as Barbie Doll sheets and Transformer rugs. Does decorating your child's bedroom really have to be this difficult? While I can't promise you that there will not be a single complaint, here are a few kids' bedroom ideas that will help you decorate on a budget while keeping your child's style preferences in mind.

Nautical Theme- Young and old alike, people are magically drawn to the sea. That is why nautical themed rooms are among the most popular designs every year. Maximize this theme with detailed cabinet pulls and knobs from starfish, angelfish and dolphins to anchors, mermaids and seashells. Shades of blue, red and cream will bring this theme home. (Alternatively, if you prefer greens, Acorn Hardware has a colorful fish knob in beautiful shades of green.) Use thick twined rope or netting to further your theme.

Would You Prefer Wood? For some people, nothing beats the rustic comfort of wood. If you are one of those individuals, then there are plenty of solutions for you. Simple stained wood can be elegant and attractive without any fanfare necessary. Alternatively, unfinished wood cabinet pulls and knobs leave the canvas empty for you to put your own personal finishing touches onto the room. Whichever you choose, you will get the warmth and beauty of wood.

Rain Forest Theme- The rain forest is another one of those exciting kids' bedroom ideas. Use cabinet knobs shaped like exotic tree frogs, colorful lizards and wild dragonflies to create the mood. Don't forget the majestic cockatoos by Notting Hill Hardware. Hang plush green curtains, complementary colored linens and a shag carpet for an entire room makeover. You can also paint an expansive jungle landscape on the walls if you are artistic by nature.

Celestial Beings- If starry nights and celestial beings are your scene, then star and moon cabinet knobs are certainly going to be in your cards. These ethereal cabinet pulls and knobs will get you feeling like you are sleeping under the open sky. Who knows, maybe your child will begin her career as an astrophysicist all because of this imaginative hardware. Enhance your efforts with a blue color palette and use soft materials such as chiffon, velveteen or even satin.

Cabinet hardware is a great way to start and complete an exciting room theme. Aside from the fact that there are plenty of options for you and your child to choose from, these room ornaments are functional and something you would be spending money on anyway. So, with whimsical cabinet hardware, you are getting a two for one deal. On top of all that, novelty or themed cabinet knobs and pulls can really create the look you are aiming for in a direct and lighthearted manner. Give your kids the gift of a fun, themed room, and give yourself the gift of a few extra bucks in your pocket and strands of sanity left in your head at the end of it all. Let cabinet hardware the simple room theme solution for you.
