Forget garish colours, uncoordinated bedding and clutter, children’s bedrooms can be a reflection of the rest of your home, not a travesty at the end of the landing. Whatever their age here are our top tips to make your children’s bedroom into more of a boudoir than a bomb site.
Your nursery needs to provide a calming space for you, and your baby so keep the base neutral – a subtle shade of taupe or grey is perfect. You could even use a white shade and add warmth with wall hangings or accessories. If you want to go down the pink / blue route then add a few colour coordinated accessories rather than adding colour to the whole room.
This pretty pink polka rug from Matalan is a sweet addition, whilst this bunting from Maisons du Monde is a cute blue touch. If you want to take a more gender neutral approach, this musical pom pom mobile from Mamas and Papas is a gorgeous addition to any cot. And this storage basket from Mothercare is both adorable and useful.
Prints are also an easy way to give the space some life to your children’s bedroom. This cute print from Desenio is a small reminder of the incredible bond between parent and child.
As your little one starts finding their feet, and their personality, it’s important that their bedroom is a reflection of them. A Scandi-style bedroom offers the perfect balance of style and functionality. Think clean lines, smooth wood and neutral base palettes, mixed with quirky prints and striking wall murals.
This cloud wallpaper from Nubie will give your children’s room a calming feel and encourage your child to dream big. Teamed with this tipi bed from Cuckooland, your little ones imagination will be running wild. But if you don’t want to go all out with a tipi themed bed, this collapsable tipi play tent from Houzz is the perfect, more temporary, solution for your children’s bedroom.
But design and style aside, it’s important to ensure that there’s room for them to play, to create and to enjoy. This adventure floor map from KIDLY is fun and interior design friendly, as are these building blocks from Lullabuy (and they’re educational too!). This simplistic space-saving desk from Ikea is a great storage space for all arts and crafts activities and this cute personalised hanger from Not on the High Street allows them to hang their work in pride of place too.
