Design Creative Rooms for Kids

As kids grow, we want their imaginations to soar, and their bedrooms are the perfect place to get this creativity sparking.

If you’re a parent, you’ll know a bedroom isn’t just about how it looks, it’s about what it can do. Kids’ bedrooms should be just as functional as they are fun, with plenty of storage and organizational options. Drawers, folders, shelves, and baskets – anything that will keep toys, books, clothes, and school work neat and tidy.

We’ve found some functional, fun, and colourful rooms to inspire your children’s decor.

NURSERY

This decoration will likely be the shortest lived as your baby quickly grows into a toddler and outgrows the crib. With this in mind, be minimal with your décor choices and pick art that can be used down the road. Some key features: a comfortable chair for nursing and a change table that can double as a dresser.

Here are some more tips from Crate & Barrel.

TODDLER / GRADE SCHOOL

As your kids’ personalities shine through, it’s cool to showcase that in their room décor. Once you’ve factored in space, decide whether you want one or two beds – sleepovers are a fun experience at this age. And, like we mentioned above, always think about storage. Empty floor space is a bonus for lego blocks, art work, or picnics.

PRE-TEEN / TEEN

A little more mature in décor, these rooms will really set the stage as your child turns into an adult. Your kid may even upgrade from a single bed to a double or queen-sized bed. At this age, it’s a great idea to factor in a desk, so kids can work in privacy and get to know their own space.
