1. Furniture

We need to search for dual-purpose furniture’s in the room so that it grows along with the kid. We love to have theme-based décor and style’s, but they usually tend to wear, and the kids find it boring too after a particular time. A dual type of furniture comes very handy like have a changing table that can change into a desk or a dresser. Similarly, always buy a bed with storage below, which will help store away all the toys and keep the room clean. If two kids are sharing a bedroom, it is good to have two separate beds and treat their spaces differently. Bed, study table, dresser, storage a few things that will always remain constant.

2. Colors

Pick up a few colors and play around with it. Kids bedroom is where we get to be creative and daring with colors. We would need to change the wall colors as they grow for which another option would to go in for all neutral palettes and play around with accent colors in the furniture, upholstery, rugs, cushions creating a stunning bedroom. A fun part is also to paint a portion of the wall in chalkboard paint, where they can spend hours scribbling on it and yes it would be useful in their growing years.

3. Prints and Patterns

Trends show that geometric patterns, elegant stripes, and animal prints always have been the most common finishes in a child’s bedroom. As much as adults love them, they are also part of the children’s favorite things. Make sure the patterns and styles are timeless so that it does not need to change regularly. Also, with a little change in the accessories or furniture, the whole look of the room can vary. Stripes, animal prints, floral, scenery, superheroes, etc. are few of the favorites.

Beds with storage are good options, closed storage unit help store and clear away everything in the room. Also, what can work are the cane baskets which will serve them well beyond the age of 8 or 9. A bookshelf is a valuable addition that will stay for a lifetime.

6. Space Around

Depending on the size of the room, it is good to make space for the playtime on the floor. So, it is better to push the bed, and heavy furniture’s towards the wall as it will create quite an open space in the center for the kids to play. Another idea is bunk bed or loft bed. Proper space planning will help here.
