Growing Up: Inspiration for Kids’ Rooms

Designing kids’ rooms can be a blast for the whole family. There is a lot to consider, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Let’s focus on the key categories, and make spaces that will grow with them.

Color Conscious

The best way to establish the base of kids’ rooms is paint color. Pick neutral colors that allow these spaces to be versatile. Subtle colors can easily be enhanced with colorful accents.

Wall Accent

An easy way to add some style and enhance imagination is with an accent wall. It can be small or large, as long as it is fun to look at. The best part is how many options you have, such as wall decals, which can be changed out as time goes by. This will allow the art to change with your child’s interests.

Another great option for a wall feature is wallpaper. There are so many styles, colors, and patterns to pick from–it’s easy to find one you’ll like. Peel N’ Stick products make it even easy to DIY.

Looking for something a little more permanent for kids’ rooms? Shiplap, board and batten, or wainscoting can be the answer. This feature can even be changed with a simple coat of paint.

The Details

Your child’s room is for them. That is a given. But, it’s important as parents to have a nice balance of youthfulness + style. It is–after all–an extension of the rest of your home. Simple accents can transform the space like area rugs, wall art, accent pillows, or window treatments. Every little detail matters.

Storage Room

The more storage the better. The older they get the more toys they accumulate. It’s vital to have a home for all of the pieces so they are out of sight and out of mind.

Creative Space

Whether they are learning to write, or writing an essay, they need a work space. This space will grow with them and their needs.

Take a break from busy school work to just relax. Making a reading nook or a fun hanging chair will entice your little ones to find adventures in a new book.

Sleep Right and Tight

Sleep is and always will be a top priority for kids’ rooms. Since they were born it’s been on your mind. Make the right atmosphere to promote sleep with blackout and room darkening shades.

Keeping Kids’ Rooms Safe

Cords are dangerous. It’s as simple as that. Children are curious and have active imaginations. Unfortunately, cords could be part of that play. Eliminate that possibility with child-safe cords or cordless shades.
