From design tips to children's bedroom ideas and inspiration, we show you how to create a space perfect for your kids

A child's imagination is a wonderful thing to be nurtured and celebrated and a great canvas to do so is their very own bedroom. We know how interiors, colours and design can boost our overall wellbeing so why not use similar principles within your kids' bedroom design? As your children grow older, involve them in the process of planning the kids’ room décor; the key is to find a good balance between their imaginations and the functionality of the room. We walk you through a few basic steps and show you some inspiring kid's rooms that might have you wanting to be a kid again.


A Few Tips to Keep in Mind While Planning the Children's Bedroom Design

1. Layout

The layout of the kid's bedroom should allow for maximum functionality and circulation. The space constraints of the room play a major role in deciding the children’s bedroom furniture designs especially the big, permanent pieces like bed(s), wardrobe(s) and/or study area(s).

  • Try to divide the room into zones for sleep, play, study, dress and storage with a free flow from one zone to the next.

  • Remember to factor in windows, doors and electrical outlets as well as the space required for drawers and cupboard doors to open.

  • Plan your layout to maximize the natural light in the room and keep as much floor space free for play time.

  •  Keep in mind, as your kids get older, they will want a bit of their own space, especially in a shared bedroom.

2. Children's Bedroom Furniture

Every kid's bedroom needs three lasting pieces – a bed, a wardrobe and a desk. Remember, some of the furniture should grow with their ever-changing needs. You will also need to have enough storage or the possibility to expand storage as your children grow and need more space.

  • In a shared bedroom design, a bigger wardrobe and desk can be shared spaces while identical beds will make up some of the personal space for each child. Try to keep these pieces versatile or neutral to allow for change in décor as they grow older.

  • Be on the lookout for multi-purpose furniture, especially those that add creative or concealed storage.

  • A great children's bedroom décor idea is to vertical space to the maximum for display units, décor and storage. 
  • When placing bunk beds, make sure the top bunk is far away from the ceiling fan and place them away from windows. Add a railing on the top bunk for extra safety.

  • Consider an L-shaped arrangement for twin beds.

  • Use the vertical space above the  study table design(s) efficiently with built-in cabinets or bookshelves.

  • Consider sliding door wardrobes which work well in tight spaces.


3. Themes and Colours

When it comes to children's bedroom interior design, colours and themes can be quite a difficult to settle on.

  • As kids grow older, factor in their likes and personalities into the decision-making process; involve them in the design stage.
  • Kids' tastes and preferences can change pretty quickly. Keep larger or permanent pieces neutral or muted to be able to adapt to different themes and/or colour schemes.

  • In a shared bedroom, you might have to blend various preferences into a cohesive space. If you can't settle on a common theme, try creating a balance of their favourite colours as accents within a neutral colour scheme. Personalise individual areas with soft furnishings, wall decals, décor items, personal souvenirs and colours they pick out.

1. The Perfect Shared Kids' Bedroom

This children's bedroom design is the perfect way to share a space yet give each child their own zones. The L-shape arrangement frees up the centre of the room while elevating the beds and fitting study areas below are great ways to utilize every inch of space. A colour palette like this one can grow with the kids well into their teenage years.

2. Stepping Up the Bunk Bed Game in the Kids' Bedroom

Regular bunk beds are great but this one really takes it to another level with the theme, storage in the stairs and providing each kid with a private cocoon.

3. A Colourful Play Area for your Kids' Room Décor

Encourage your kids' imagination with colour in their play area. Design a wall storage with a tree house theme to get them excited.

4. Dark Colours can Also Work for your Kids' Room Décor

This is a great example of how to use black or darker colours in your kids' bedroom. By contrasting the black wall with a light, aviation-themed wallpaper, the room still has a fun element to it. Softer touches with sheers and pillows add to the lightness while the colourful details on the black wall break up the monotony. You could also use chalkboard paint on the wall (not to be confused with chalk paint) to create an unlimited canvas where your kids can scribble and draw.

5. Turn your Children's Bedroom Interiors into a Vibrant Escape

Wallpaper is a great addition to your children's bedroom interior design as you can always change it with relative ease in a few years. Choose a fun print in vibrant colours to accentuate one wall and pull colours from the wallpaper into the soft furnishings to tie the look together. From the bed design to the colourful decorative elements, this bedroom is all about fun.

6. Minimal Doesn't Mean Boring

Not everyone likes oodles of colour and prints; minimal décor or a neutral colour scheme can also work well in a kid's bedroom with fun elements added to the mix. The idea is to steer clear of a cold, stark room so layer natural materials and textures. You want the space to be enjoyable and soothing. Adding wood and natural materials can infuse the minimal décor with enough warmth without overpowering the décor.

7. Design your Kids' Room Interior to Maximize Space

This bedroom makes great use of space with the children’s bedroom furniture seamlessly flowing from one zone to the next. It also frees up a lot of floor space in the centre of the room. There is ample storage, a comfortable bed and a large study area all fit against one wall. The predominantly white room is elevated by pockets of colour and the patterned flooring.
