1. Bridging the gap. Siblings who bunk together can get a new spin on sharing with this unique space. The whimsical wooden canopy in the center of the room can be built with supplies from your neighborhood big-box store and helps divide up each side of the room in a playful way.
2. Lofty kid. If you have high ceilings, a loft in your child's room is an ideal way to keep the bedroom neat and orderly while creating plenty of room for play. Design a similar look yourself for the style that suits your home, but have it professionally built for safety.
3. Built-in bed. Create an oasis for your child with an all-encompassing built-in bed. Incorporate open shelving for books, plus drawers and doors for clothing. Definitely kid approved.
4. Penthouse living. Remake your attic into a long-term space for your son or daughter. Paint the walls and ceiling a light and inviting color, then add furniture and accessories for comfort, for a bedroom where your child has space and privacy.
6. Storage fun. Freestanding or built-in modular wood shelving units are playful and practical. They're great for providing access to toys while teaching kids to keep their room organized.
7. Cool chalk. Go bold and paint the entire room with chalkboard paint. Kids of all ages will absolutely love it — and parents never need to worry about cleaning the walls again. As your child matures, this color can easily work for an elegant little space with a dainty chandelier and urban-chic furnishings.
8. Branch out. Any space can be decorated with wall art. Get creative! Here a tree is painted on the wall, and the branches are actually shelves. What a simple way to create functional and cute wall art.
