Are you looking for inspired ways to keep your child’s bedroom cheerful, distinctive and functional? Then read on for tips to create a dreamy space that your little one will love to spend time in. There’s an exciting world of design possibilities out there, even for the smallest spaces. It’s the perfect excuse to be as bold or magical as you want, whether you’re decorating a boy’s room, girl’s room or a nursery.
Pick Wallpaper That They (and You!) Will Love
Choosing wallpaper for your child’s bedroom can be a real challenge. Whilst they may currently be obsessed with trains or cowboys, fairies or flowers, this may not always be the case. Give it a few years and they may well be begging you to tear it down and start again. Plus, keep in mind that you have to look at it every day too. So if you’re not thrilled at the prospect of looking into the eyes of Elsa from Frozen or Tumbling Stuart of Minions fame every day for the next ten years, it could be worth steering clear of cartoon characters.
Take a look at top independent designer Katie Bourne’s distinctive illustrations or eye-catching classic kids motifs at John Lewis. Cath Kidston has some beautiful vintage inspired wallpaper, or why not choose something completely out of the ordinary from Wall Library? For a cost-effective alternative, you could even paint their room in a subtle shade that will grow with your child, from the terrible twos to their (even more terrible!) teenage years.
Invest in Durable and Stylish Furniture
Furniture for your child’s bedroom an important investment. Not only will you want to choose stylish pieces that you both love, but you’ll also want to ensure that they are durable and hardwearing. After all, you won’t want to have to replace them after just a year or so. There are hundreds of kids beds online for sale, and so you can expect to be spoilt for choice. There are single beds, cabin beds, mid sleepers, high sleepers, loft beds and bunk beds.
There’s a massive range of kids bedroom furniture out there, including a pirate ship bed complete with ladders and ropes and even a Secret Chronicles of Narnia wardrobe which leads them into their very own playroom!
There are so many possibilities when it comes to choosing kids bedroom décor, and this can make it a real challenge. However, creating a wonderful space in which your child can thrive, learn and play is of paramount importance, and it can also be a huge amount of fun too.
