Of course, there are millions of ideas which you will come across when you browse through the web pages over the internet, but they all wont suit as per your child’s need.

Many people leave it to the interior decorators as they are themselves not sure about how to design a kid’s room. But if you are planning to this on your own, this article will surely help you, to know how exactly you can design your child’s room.


First you need to make a list of what your kids prefer, the colors they like, their favorite superheroes, their dreams, their imagination and talks that surround their creativity and so on. Once you have made the list of things your kids likes and dislikes. You can go ahead and decide with designing options like theme rooms, fun furnitures, faux wall paintings, and creative window treatments.


To begin with, let’s decide on what color will be suitable for your kid’s room. Remember, it should always be the favorite color of your kids. If they like blue, you can choose between different shades of blue, or the better way to do it is, show them the range of colors and let them pick one. For girls, shades of pink or any floral colors will be the best option.

If you are thinking of theme rooms, than you will have to sneak into their favorite books, their artistic interest, their favorite characters like Harry Potter, Spiderman and so on. Use the right theme color for the room and decorate it with toys and accessories that will give your kids room a superb finish.


When it comes to beds, you can choose normal beds with attractive bed sheets, or you can go for fantasy beds, which comes in strange shapes. Also, before you go ahead and purchase those fantasy beds, make sure they will fit in comfortably in the room. Kid’s room need to have more space for them to run around.

Versatile furnishings and unique window treatments can also enhance the look of your kid’s room.  For floorings, rugs with cartoons characters and funny themes are the right ones. Make sure non-skid pads are used under decorative area rugs. Also, you need to make sure that all electrical wires are out of their reach, as safety comes first. Storage units should not be too high for them to reach. Also, save some place to display your child’s artwork, collections and projects.
