It’s a little boy or little girl’s chance to have their own space, which often feels magical to them, where they can play safely and happily, and also do their school homework.
Designing a kids room can be very challenging, considering the fast pace in which kids are growing up these days. On the one hand, you want it to be a space your little one loves and enjoy spending time inside. On the other, you want it to be hardworking and practical, a room that can stand up to endless hours of play and adapt as your child grows.
It's hard enough keeping up with the endless influx of technological gadgets before finding ways to store all of these "next best things".
In these beautifully designed rooms below, the perfect balance of practicality and creativity has been achieved and will easily appeal to parents and children alike.
Keep It Simple
When it comes to the kids' room, less is usually more. By keeping the décor simple and furnishings to a minimum, you’ll create more space to play and provide a neutral canvas that can be easily updated as your child grows.
Make Room For Magic
Kids see the world differently, infusing imagination and magic into every day. Give them some inexpensive fairy lights and a $5 pack of glow-in-the-dark ceiling stars, and they’ll give you a fairy palace and a galaxy of adventure. So go ahead! Add a touch of something enchanting! You just might be surprised by what you get in return.
Focus On Play
To create a room, your little one will love, try focusing on the thing they love to do most: play! This sweet and girly indoor swing emphasizes fun without sacrificing style. Want to add an element of fun to your design? Consider a chalkboard wall or an easy-to-update art gallery where your kiddo can display their favourite creations. A built-in rock-climbing wall, bunk bed slide or ceiling suspended cargo net also make a great option, encouraging play while helping to burn up all that extra, pre-bedtime energy.
Storage Is Essential
Opt for a storage piece that will look great for years to come – while concealing all manner of clutter. Kids are collectors, try adding a few bins to store away their well-loved toys and other things. To help your kids stay organized, keep things at their height. A cosy floor bed and pint-sized chair plus coat racks offer a comfortable alternative to traditional furnishings. At the same time, low bins, open shelving, and easy-to-access hooks encourage self-responsibility and independent play.
Start With Good Woodcraft
Start with well-made styles that will last throughout your little one's childhood.
Once your child has graduated from the crib and is ready for a “big kid” bed, choose a high-quality piece you’ll both be glad for years to come, be it a pair of twin beds for a shared room (or sleepovers!) or a queen for a roomier option. And once your kids move out, you’ll have a guest suite ready – and of course, a space for them when they come back to visit!
