8 Kids Bedroom Ideas You and Your Child Will Enjoy

Decorating a child's bedroom is a delicate balancing act. On the one hand, you want it to be a place they enjoy spending time in, one that inspires creativity for play while also feeling restful for sleep. On the other hand, it would be nice if you liked the room as well—that it felt like a cohesive (if more fun!) part of your home.

We've compiled some of our favorite ideas—a formula, if you will—for nailing the decor in a kid's bedroom to help you create a space you'll both enjoy spending time in. Continue reading to see how it's done!

 


Make a Statement with Your Walls

 


What could be more exciting than a bold, splashy wall moment in a child's bedroom? There are numerous options here to suit any style and budget: Make an accent wall with colorful wallpaper or a fresh coat of paint (or go for it on all the walls—or the ceiling!), or try a DIY wall mural... Creativity is essential here; we're sure your child has some ideas for what they'd like in their room.

 


Choose Long-Lasting Statement Pieces

 


You don't have to spend a fortune on every piece of furniture for a child's bedroom, but it's a good idea to select a few key styles that will last as they grow. This can be a crib that converts into a larger bed, a sturdy dresser that will fit in with any decor style, or even an armchair or side table that you can move around your home.

 


Roll Out a Moroccan Rug

 


Of course, a Moroccan rug should be in every child's bedroom! And you have a lot of great options based on the style and function you want. We adore using these shag rugs in children's rooms. Because of their plush pile, they provide a wonderfully soft landing spot for little feet and floor play.

 


Store Your Kid's Belongings in Style

 


Kids' bedrooms can get cluttered with toys, books, clothes, and art supplies! Make cleaning up a breeze for them (and yourself!) by strategically placing stylish storage throughout the space. To hide all the clutter, use woven baskets, bins made of fun fabric, or shelves with drawers or boxes.

 


Lighting Can Help to Warm it Up

 


Chic lighting is one of the simplest ways to add sophistication to a child's bedroom. Install a lamp on the side table, a fun pendant from the ceiling, a stylish standing lamp in the corner, or a pair of sconces on either side of the bed. We guarantee it will instantly warm up the space and bring it into harmony with the rest of your home!

 


Together, Decide on a Color Scheme


We're guessing your child will want a say in how their room looks—if they're old enough! Choosing a color scheme is an excellent way to involve them in the decorating process. Show them a variety of photos or take them to your local home decor store to see what color palettes and styles they naturally gravitate toward. And don't be afraid to try out non-traditional color schemes for kids' rooms, as seen in the very chic earth-toned room above!

 


Use Art to Add Character to the Room

 


When it comes to decorating a children's bedroom, we like to think of art as the icing on the cake! To add that extra special flourish to the space, use a mix of fun, colorful artwork. Bonus points if you choose the artwork together or if it was created by your child!

 


Fun is all it Takes


Even if you use "adult" furniture in your child's bedroom, you can still make the space feel more youthful. We like the idea of including fun, removable accessories that can be removed when they outgrow them. For a little something extra, hang a colorful pennant garland on the wall or a small tent or canopy above their bed. You already know they'll enjoy it!
