When it comes to decorating a kids bedroom it’s often very difficult to find some kind of inspiration as to just what style to go for. You have all your existing furniture – bed, dressing table, wardrobe and alike – and you need to find a way of incorporating them into the overall style of the room. However, this already complicated procedure takes on a whole new level of complexity when you’re trying to decorate a child’s bedroom.
A lot of children have particular tastes – they might be big football fans, maybe they’re dreaming of being a princess, they like a particular television show or perhaps they want to be a racing driver. Whatever they enjoy, that’s usually how they want their room to be decorated, showing off their tastes and what makes them happy. The problem with this is it is often particularly difficult to find the right decorations. How are you supposed to find wallpaper that has SpongeBob on for example, or a particular paint with glitter mixed in? Nightmare!
There are a number of things you can do for a bit of inspiration, however, and many are based around the kind of furniture not just the colour scheme. Brands such as Style Our Home have a whole range of different bedroom furniture that are perfect for kids bedrooms and don’t take up too much space either, something that is key for a child’s room.
By the time you’ve put in the essentials – bed, drawers etc. – and then they’ve cluttered the whole floor with their toys and clothes you can find that there is very little space so you need to really think through your choices. Beds with storage underneath are just one way of doing this, allowing them to put their toys under the mattress. Blanket boxes are another great idea because they serve a dual purpose. You can store things inside, such as bedding, clothes or toys and then it can also be used as a seat so you don’t need to have chairs in the room that take up more room.
Getting inspiration for a kids bedroom doesn’t have to be hard. Think about what they like, the kind of things they wear, do or talk about and use this as the basis of your decorating plans. Space will always be compromised so try to avoid clutter, and also remember that they will start to grow up and they may outgrow what they like at the moment. They’re not always going to be SpongeBob fans or dreaming of becoming a princess!
