There’s more to a child’s bedroom than just being a place to lay their head at night. It’s their own space where they can play and let their imagination run wild; a place where they can have a game of hide and seek or stow away their friend when it’s time for them to go. A child’s bedroom is a haven and a perfect representation of character which is why it’s important to get them involved and take inspiration from them when it comes to decorating.
Choosing the bed
For the little girl who has a love for all things princesses and fantasy, the possibilities are endless. If you’re looking for a fully-themed bed, we’re loving this cabin bed complete with slide and a princess tower, as well as a play area underneath from Noa and Nani. Just imagine how much fun your child would have – not to mention, that slide would make getting up for school seem a lot more exciting and make your mornings easier! If you’d like a bed design that transcends through your child’s “tween” years then perhaps a single canopy bed would be more suitable like this lovely Amori Baldequin bed from Houzz, plus it can be made as “princessy” as your child wishes.
For the adventurer, we love the concept of this treehouse bed from Noa and Nani. There’s plenty of room below for a play area or for somewhere to store toys. If you’d prefer to get a bed that’ll still be suitable in the tween years too, the Stompa Uno 5 Nero High Sleeper from Room to Grow will be the one. It boasts a desk, a shelving unit and a chair bed, a fantastic solution for sleepovers – no sleeping bags on the floor!
Designing the interior
Let yourself and your child take the lead on this instead of following the ready-made themes from shops. For a unique look, we’re fans of Mural Wallpapers who have a wide selection of designs that would bring a room to life. A fantastic idea for contrasting a feature wall against a primary colour. For the explorer there’s the animated world map or for the princess at heart, there’s the stunning fairytale castle mural which will certainly bring a touch of magic to a room. If you don’t want to commit to a theme because you know your child will want a new bedroom look as soon as they hit high school, Murals Your Way have the solution with their removable wallpaper. There’s a whole range of designs and if two siblings are sharing a room you can even have half and half.
The ultimate children’s furniture
For a cool reading or “chill out” corner, these beanbags from Children’s Rooms are ideal, with so many designs to choose from and at such a great price, you can pick out a few different ones so there’s a spot for when friends come to visit. The selection of children’s sofabeds from Just 4 Kidz Furniture are an absolute must for any child’s bedroom, not only do the designs contribute to the overall ensemble of the room but the sofabeds are a must for when school friends stay over. For the budding artists, the children’s desks from Ikea are a perfect addition with the Sundvik desk offering storage for crayons and colouring books. Speaking of storage, this toy chest from The Children’s Furniture Company would look great at the end of the bed and would complement any colour scheme or theme.
Whichever way you decide to decorate your child’s room, we hope our quick tips provide some inspiration for achieving the ultimate interior!
