No matter how small the space is, you can always create a fun and relaxing cocoon for your young one. "Whether sleeping, doing homework, or simple relaxing, children should feel that their room reflects their true self," note the editors of Decorating Kids' Rooms and Family Friendly Spaces. "Let your kids be involved in the design decisions, especially for their own private spaces. This allows them to appreciate the space and to feel ownership."
Let these small bedrooms show you how you can achieve a stylish space for the little love of your life:
1. Storage is an important consideration when decorating kids' bedroom. Industrial-style shelving by the headboard keeps this room clutter-free.
2. The greyish blue walls set the tone for this calming bedroom that is prettified with buntings, string lights, a floating shelf, and cute wall decors.
3. Surprises of blue, yellow, and orange accents make this white-walled room visually interesting. Your kids would have loads of fun doodling on that blackboard ceiling.
4. Here's a lovely idea for bunk bed arrangement: Instead of having the higher bed stacked on top of the other, why not build storage cabinets underneath it instead?
5. You can also try loft-style bunk beds, where the sleeping areas are not parallel to each other. In this pink-and-white bedroom, a built-in shelf also serves as storage for the kids' curios.
6. Impart life lessons to your child by using quotes as decors, like in this pastel-hued bedroom.
7. Kids' rooms don't always have to be bursting with colours. This monochromatic room looks just as fine—even more playful with that black-and-white teepee.
8. Aspire for a bedroom that's educational, too. Help them learn more words by mounting flashcards on their wall using wooden clothespins.
9. This room is surely bathed in lots of natural light, which makes the colours pop out even more.
10. Nurture in him or her the love for reading by placing a bookshelf-cum-console beside the bed.
11. Does your boy and girl need to share rooms? No problem! Use colours to zone their spaces so they feel they still have their own private corner.
12. Make sleeping more magical for your little one by decorating with DIY canopy featuring string lights.
13. Let him or her feel this is his own space by personalising some details in his or her bedroom. The layered feature wall also looks stunning!
14. Nude-coloured furnishings and accents don't necessarily translate to dull and drab. This bedroom exudes a calming, relaxing vibe—it's never difficult to put your little one to bed.
15. Quirky and playful accents such as the area rug and laundry hamper make staying in this bedroom super fun!
