Kids bedroom design

Kids bedroom design can make for a really fun project. But you need to strike a balance between furniture pieces that they can use for a number of years. Alongside all the things they are really into right now.

But there are a few things you can do to make sure your child’s space is a fun space that can grow with them. Firstly, for the larger items like beds, chests of drawers and bedside tables, buy the best quality you can afford. Little people are surprisingly hard on their furniture and good quality pieces are more likely to stand the test of time. Think about keeping these bigger items gender neutral in timber or white finishes.

Next comes the really fun part of kids bedroom design. The styling! Forget about the old idea of all pink for girls and all blue for boys. These days anything goes colour-wise!

Think about unexpected colour pairings like dusty pink and mustard. Or electric blue and terracotta. Kids rooms can be cool and don’t have to be too cutesy.

Once you’ve got the basics decided then you can start adding decor pieces to bring the room to life. Think bedding, artworks, books, rugs. Sports? Space? Animals? Ballet? Or of course, unicorns? Pick up on their interests and choose a couple of fun items in that theme to dress the room. Resist the urge to go completely ‘all in’ on a particular look. This year it might be dinosaurs, but next year it might be soccer. It’s much easier to change an artwork and a cushion than a whole room if their tastes change.

And the good news is that it doesn’t have to cost the earth to create a really special bedroom for your little person. Stores like Adairs have amazing bedding. And Norsu Interiors has some super fun artworks for all ages and interests.
