HOW TO DESIGN AN INSPIRING BEDROOM FOR CREATIVE CHILDREN
When designing a child’s bedroom, it can be hard to consider all of the different and additional functions this space will need to serve. Adult bedrooms are completely different – primarily geared toward relaxing, sleeping, dressing and functionality. The bedroom is most often the place a child will spend so much of their free time. A place for creativity, imagination, learning, and active play. Why not make their experience even better by creating a room they will love! Encourage children’s artistic and imaginative abilities by giving them an inspiring bedroom space.
An ideal child’s room will offer a safe environment so invest in sturdy furniture and nontoxic materials. Their bedroom will cultivate play and learning experiences whether it’s designed with the perfect spot for reading before bed or has a place to play when friends from school come over. Explore well-equipped bedrooms and beautifully designed rooms on Pinterest or Facebook groups, to learn how to devise a creative kid’s room that inspires learning, discovery, and play.
The perfect bed
The main component of any bedroom is the bed itself, and maybe it’s time to rethink it. The bed will dictate what you can do with the rest of your space. Luckily there are plenty of dazzling styles to choose from for children.
Designers are doing amazingly creative things with bunk beds and lofted bed designs. If you only have a small space, choose a high sleeper with a desk for your child’s bedroom as a fantastic contemporary bunk bed with plenty of storage space and workspace. The best thing about this bed is the potential space saving. Choosing a higher bed to climb into creates more space to move about in within the rest of the room, adding a dynamic element. This gives the freedom to get creative with how the rest of their bedroom looks. You don’t have to have a large room to create imaginative and playful spaces, and bunk bed design can help make sharing a room cool again. You can buy stylish children’s furniture and beds that are perfect for creative little ones as well as beds designed to last and be adaptable as the child grows up and develops.
Fun with colour
Colour is your best friend when it comes to designing an inspiring room for creative kids. If you are like me and like to have clean white walls, then use vibrant furnishings such as curtains, rugs or bedding to brighten up the space further. Brightening things up with a splash of colour, children are born unafraid to mix colours as they please. If bold, lively colours match your child’s originality, high energy and freedom then really go for it.
Lastly, one great way to create an inspiring room for your child is to encourage them to get creative in their bedroom. This could mean having a themed bedroom, creating a dressing up corner or adding a chalkboard with wall paint for them to draw on. Find something that inspired them whether it is as simple as just setting up an arts and crafts area in the room. A trendy design at the moment is to add a fort tee-pee, it doesn’t take up much space and is easy to set up and take down. These changes don’t have to cost the earth, setting up a reading den with a bean bag chair, a few blankets, some fairy lights and a selection of their favourite books can be an effective way to spark the joy of reading. Having a dedicated space for books and toys also helps children appreciate every item they have and helps keep it all tidy.
You can also use neon lights as a night light for your kid’s bedroom.
