Designing a kid’s room with minimal effort

If you want the kids to love their room and that feels like their own space you need to pay attention to a set of specific elements. You need to think like a kid but also like a parent. The room has to look fun but it also has to be safe and functional.

Make a list of favorites.

First of all, make a list of the things your kid likes most. It can be anything from a favorite color to a favorite cartoon character, story or animal. Then you can use these things when planning the design and décor of the room. Maybe you can come up with a theme.

Pick the color.

In terms of color, you should paint the room a shade that your kid enjoys. Decide what that color is and find a way to include it in your design. For example, if that color is blue, you can make a wall look like a cloudy sky or you can do that for the ceiling. If you want something less permanent, introduce that color in other ways, like with pillows, bedding, artwork, etc.

Choose a theme.

When picking the theme for the room, think of what your kid likes: favorite books, characters, superheroes, animals, etc. decorate the room with decals, toys, fun furniture and rugs. If you spend enough time searching for these things, you’ll find a ton of suitable elements to include in your design.

The right type of bed.

Choose the bed carefully. There are several types of designs to choose from. Bunk beds are excellent for two or more kids that share the same room if you want to save floor space. The regular, single beds are also a lovely option. You can also choose a bed with a fantasy-inspired design, an unusual shape or canopy bed for a little princess.

Accent details.
