Create a Cool Kids Room

Creating a stylish bedroom for your children that suits their personality and inspires their young minds can be challenging, but it can also be lots of fun. It's your chance to really flex your design muscle and bring out your playful side, whilst keeping it looking chic and well put together. Here are some suggestions for the main things to consider when decorating a kids room:

Make it a Themed Kids Room

There's a lot of fun to be had with the design if you or your child wants a themed room. It's a great opportunity for them to let their imagination run wild and express themselves. And with a little clever thinking, it's easy to come up with interesting, stylish ideas to fit the theme. For an adventurer room, for example, could paint a jungle inspired motif on the wall or build their bed into a boat - but be sure to give some thought, with things like this, how easy it will be to change later, as designing a room that can evolve with your child will make redecorating easier in the future!

Make it a Colourful Kids Room

It's time to move beyond simply choosing pink for a girl or blue for a boy. Kid's rooms are a great place to get really adventurous with your colour scheme - children aren't afraid of big, bright, bold colours! But you still want to think carefully about the combinations you use, to make sure they work. This is where referring back to something like Colour Theory can really help bring the look of the room together. Naturally you'll also want to take your child's favourite colour into consideration.

Make it a Hardworking Kids Room

Your child's room will need to meet a lot fo requirements, both fun and functional. You want a design that expresses their personality now, but one that's adaptable so it can evolve with them easily; one with plenty of storage for toys and stuff for school; and one that encourages them to both play and learn. Creating 'zones' in the room is a great way to achieve this whilst helping them to keep the distinction between homework time, play time and sleep time. You can also build in clever features that will help your child keep the room tidy, without disrupting the look of the design, like making the doors of a racecar bed open to reveal under-bed storage.
