Creating an area above a large bed for childhood keepsakes, trinkets and books will make the room feel more cozy and childlike.
If you're worried about a big bed taking up too much space, consider painting the wall behind the bed a nice dark color. This will give the illusion of depth and make the room appear larger.
If you have the square footage, lining the walls with multiple queen-size beds is a great way to sleep a crowd. This room is perfect for slumber parties and late-night pillow fights.
This space looks like it was just transformed into a more mature design. The map keeps it playful, but you'll be happy to hang on to the furniture long after your child has left for college.
When choosing furniture, go for timeless, clean pieces your child will be happy to keep well into adulthood.
Keeping the room colorful, as with this bright pink accent wall, will prevent the space from becoming too grown-up.
