We offer you 30 decoration and furnishing ideas for a child’s room. The decoration of a beautiful child’s room presents very different requirements from those that one has for an adult’s room. Today, children’s rooms must follow a specific theme, offer different styles, use color, be creative, etc.
1. A cabin bed that makes you want to go to bed
Perfect compromise between the baby bed and the queen-size bed , the cabin bed also offers a real playground for children. As fun as it is practical, it is the ideal place to tell stories and dream of adventures. Enough to make bedtime a moment of pleasure!
2. Storage within their reach
Children need an environment that is appropriate for their size. To develop their autonomy, but also to help them develop good habits (tidying up their room, for example), they need storage designed for them. Shelves, toy boxes, but also wardrobe, opt for furniture within their reach, which they can access without difficulty.
3. A tailor-made playground
Creating a play area in their bedroom gives them a place they can invest as they see fit. This space can be arranged in a fun way so that they can invent all kinds of stories, but also easily accessible storage where they can put their toys back at the end of the day.
4. A comfortable reading corner
Creating a comfortable place in their bedroom is ideal for encouraging them to enjoy reading. A bench lined with cushions will easily find its place in a corner of the room. You can, as here, arrange the top of a low cabinet which will then serve as a support, and install a bookcase nearby.
5. A poetic wallpaper
The wallpaper is ideal for creating a childish universe in which the little ones will love to invent stories. Something to stimulate their imagination, but also to create a reassuring environment. Poetic or magical, animated by adorable little animals, there are all kinds of patterns full of sweetness , perfect to help them have sweet dreams.
6. A well-established office for working
For homework, or just drawing or coloring, an age-appropriate desk is essential. Depending on their needs, set up a tailor-made workspace with a desk and a seat at the right height, storage space, adequate lighting, but above all a pleasant place where they will want to settle.
7. A relaxation area to get away from it all
Daydreaming, confiding your secrets to your favorite blanket, leafing through a book or looking at the pictures, this is a perfect place for that! With its soft cushions and canopy that makes it a real cocoon, this cozy little nest offers a real relaxation area where children will love to take refuge.
8. Modular furniture to share your room
These bunk beds allow you to adjust the space according to the different needs of the day. The desk slides out (and is wide enough to accommodate two children) for homework comfortably. Once finished, it is put away and the bottom bed is pulled out to arrange the bedroom for the night. Clever when you only have a room for two children, or when you are looking for an additional bed to occasionally accommodate friends or cousins.
9. A round rug to add a boho touch
Natural materials such as rattan and jute have made their entry into children’s rooms for a few years. The round jute rug is an iconic object of boho decoration. It pairs perfectly with retro furniture to create a very soft vintage style. You can also use boho decorative objects in a Scandinavian bedroom or in an industrial bedroom.
10. A patterned bag to learn how to tidy up your bedroom
Storage bags allow you to have a large capacity without taking up a lot of space. Lightweight and easy to carry, they’re a fun way to teach your kids how to organize their belongings.
11. A metal toy box to organize your storage
The Lego lying around, the marbles that can be found in the four corners of the room… All that is ancient history! Invest in small storage that you can easily slip on shelves or in lockers. They take up little space and allow you to organize your child’s room.
12. A cane shade to light up the bedroom
Lighting is important in a child’s room. It should not be too aggressive or too dark. Choose different light points: a pendant lamp to illuminate the entire room and small lamps to create a subdued light. Night lights, string lights or bedside lamps will be particularly suitable in the evening. Note that cane and rattan are particularly suitable for children’s rooms.
13. A very soft armchair to create a comfortable reading corner
Arranging a reading corner in a child’s room does not require a lot of investment. You just have to think about creating a comfortable corner, where your child will like to settle down to leaf through his favorite books. The plush armchair is also reassuring.
14. An embroidered plaid with pompoms to decorate the bed linen
If you don’t feel like renewing all of your child’s bed linen, consider plaids and other quilts. They allow you to bring a little pep’s to faded or faded laundry. They can also be used on an armchair.
15. A practical desk lamp to organize your workspace
To do your homework, it is necessary to have a dedicated, organized and well-lit space. Install a lamp on your child’s desk. Feel free to add a few items like a pencil holder and a document basket to organize the space.
16. A peg board to free up space on the desk
Consider using the walls to free up space on the floor or on furniture. Install pegboard (also known as peg board ) or wall shelves above your child’s desk. Choose designs that match the decor of the room, to create unity.
17. A pysche mirror to prepare before going to school
Installing a mirror in a bedroom helps your children gain independence. They can dress on their own before going to school. In a small bedroom, installing a large mirror saves light and visually enlarges the room.
18. A canopy to make the sleeping area cocooning
The bed canopy is generally reserved for the newborn bedroom. It is installed above the cradle to create a cocooning space for baby. When your child grows up, transform this bed canopy into an indoor tent by installing it above their bed.
19. A Berber carpet to bring color
Very trendy in recent years, the Berber carpet is generally black and white. In a colored version, it is totally suitable for decorating a child’s room. It can also heat a tiled floor or hide damaged parquet.
20. An office chair to be comfortably installed
To do their homework, your child must have a dedicated space in their bedroom. It is therefore important to install an office there with a suitable seat. Be sure to choose an ergonomic and comfortable office chair. Do not hesitate to take your child to test them in store, to be sure that the seat is suitable for him.
21. A bedside table to save storage
Install a bedside table in your child’s room, to place a lamp in the immediate vicinity of his bed. This piece of furniture also offers additional storage space. To hide its contents, choose models with a drawer or a door.
22. A vintage table to create an office for the little ones
If your child is entering kindergarten, create a corner dedicated to games and crafts in his room. Choose a table of suitable dimensions, around which benches or chairs are placed. You can protect the table with a plastic tablecloth, which is easy to clean.
23. A vintage kitchen to develop your imagination
Prettier than a plastic kitchen, the vintage-inspired wooden kitchen becomes a real decorative element. It combines poetry and design. This game also helps develop your child’s imagination.
24. A cabin library to store your favorite books
If you want to install a reading nook in a child’s room, consider practical. Books should be easily accessible for your toddlers. Nearby, install floor cushions or comfortable armchairs, to share a moment of reading with him.
25. A dressing table to create a beauty corner
Create a real beauty corner for your teenager by installing a dressing table in their bedroom. Choose a model with integrated storage, to store your favorite beauty products. A stool as a seat offers an undeniable space saving.
26. A scalable bed to have a functional bed
Convertible beds are trendy and functional. They evolve like your child, following his growth. This saves you from having to change your bedding every 2-3 years. Choose beds with a minimalist or classic design, in order to easily combine with different decor trends.
27. The themes
The first thing most parents instantly think about when planning a kid’s room is the theme. One of the trending themes right now is Marvel super heroes. For girls, we obviously have the timeless princess bedroom theme. At the top of the list are the Disney princesses who hold the top of the rope.
If you want your children’s room to evolve with them, over the years, it is better to choose themes that are a little less marked. I am thinking in particular of themes on music or aviation.
The choice of furniture is also an important step. We will try to find functional furniture that takes up as little space as possible in the room.
Obviously, the most important piece of furniture is the bed. Bunk beds and multi-purpose beds are more popular than ever at the moment. Some fold into a corner effortlessly while others hide in large compartments that provide plenty of storage space. On the color side, orange, yellow and red are very popular; like blue; favorite color for children’s rooms. More and more color is brought in with the help of wall shelves, accessories, posters and thanks to the bed frame.
29. Pink and white is trendy
If your little girl wants a pink bedroom, know that the trend is pink and white. Most high-end furniture manufacturers and designers are offering this very chic and unmistakably feminine color combination this year.
To add some color to this very common palette, feel free to play around with furniture, lighting, and mirrors. All of these will help you create a sophisticated and timeless atmosphere.
30. Contemporary and colorful
You can also opt for a contemporary decoration, quite simple, refined and efficient. With a touch of gray elegance and a burst of color you should get there without too much trouble. Indeed, if you don’t like themed rooms, a more generic approach to design with a modern style will allow you to create a space that is a bit more neutral and scalable.
