Kids' Room Ideas

For children, a bedroom is more than just a place to sleep — kids rooms are a place to do schoolwork, play, read and daydream. Whether you are contemplating a complete kids bedroom remodel or are just considering various kids' room ideas for an aesthetic refresh, keep in mind that you'll need to design a space that serves multiple functions, and is both comfortable and practical for several years to come.

The ultimate experts on what kids like are kids themselves, so get their input when you’re browsing kids room remodeling ideas and kids room photos. That being said, children's preferences do change often, so when perusing kids room decorating ideas, consider accessories and colors that can be easily replaced. Overall, whether you're decorating a playroom or bedroom, be sure to focus on fun, growth and practicality.

How do I decorate a kid’s bedroom?


When browsing kids bedroom ideas, consider your child’s personality and interests - whether they are four or 14, a kid’s room should always reflect who they are.

In terms of picking colors for a kid’s bedroom design, incorporate a favorite hue on the walls or bring in bright accents, but stick with neutral furniture that doesn't need to be swapped out as interests change. While the furniture should be appropriate for your child's age, it also should be something that can grow with him or her, so consider purchasing full-sized dressers and cabinets that can last through the school years.

How do I decorate a playroom?


A playroom should be very lively and inspirational, so get creative with your color and furnishings. A wall mural or wall decal is a great way to incorporate playful design, while a chalkboard wall lets kids produce their own masterpieces. Try using fun furnishings, like beanbag chairs or floor cushions, and brightly colored textiles to encourage happy moods. Put up their artwork and create a space that encourages their interests. If they are big readers, consider a reading nook. If they love jumping around and being active, consider a slide, climbing wall or swing.

Because it is a multifunctional room, use space smartly. Install built-in cabinets and shelves for much-needed toy storage, and include a desk or work table for homework and coloring. A craft station is a great way to get those creative juices flowing, or consider a small snack area with a microwave and mini fridge. Divide the space into zones so that quieter kids can draw or read while more active kids can watch tv or play a musical instrument.

What kind of storage should I have for a kids area?


As you sort through different kids room pictures and consider various kids room decorating ideas, you’ll notice that in even the most elaborately decorated rooms, storage is never lacking. Given the huge range of toys and clothes that children have, keeping kids’ rooms clutter-free can be a difficult undertaking. As you look at various kids room designs, consider simple and effective storage solutions such as cubbies and shelves. Use the closet’s full storage capacity - install hanging organizers, add another rod for clothing and put in accessible drawers. Kids’ rooms are inherently a creative and somewhat messy space, so don’t expect pristine conditions all the time - strategically place baskets, bins and toy chests around to encourage your child to place items in these containers after use.

When it comes to a kid’s room design, always remember that because this is a child’s room, height requirements need to be adjusted. If a child cannot reach an item they most certainly can’t put it back, and this will cause mess to accumulate much faster.

How can I create a kids bedroom for multiple siblings?


If you have two children at different ages with varying styles, tastes and preferences, a kids room remodel can be tough. The key to creating co-habitable kids rooms is to give each child their own area; split the room so that each child has their bed and dresser on “their” side of the room, and, if that isn’t possible, find an arrangement that feels fair and doesn’t cloister them too close together. Closets are shared, so make sure they each have equal space to store their belongings. A lack of space can hinder even the most strategic kids’ room design, so consider a bunk bed. As the siblings get older and no longer want to share a room, or if they want to split up beds, you can always add a desk or workstation underneath the top bunk.

Kids rooms do not have to be gender-specific, so if you have a boy and girl sharing a space, don’t panic - this IS a feasible undertaking! Make sure interests of both kids are reflected equally in the kids’ room decor. Ditch the outdated idea of blue for a boy and pink for a girl, and go with what colors they actually like. As you look at kids room design ideas, take note of the various patterns, bedding, paintings and colors that customize a space by. Make sure to always get the input of the children when looking at kids' room ideas; this should be a collaborative and fun design process!

Project Feature in: Luxe Magazine & Luxury Living Brickell From skiing in the Swiss Alps to water sports in Key Biscayne, a relocation for a Chilean couple with three small children was a sea change. “They’re probably the most opposite places in the world,” says the husband about moving from Switzerland to Miami. The couple fell in love with a tropical modern house in Key Biscayne with architecture by Marta Zubillaga and Juan Jose Zubillaga of Zubillaga Design. The white-stucco home with horizontal planks of red cedar had them at hello due to the open interiors kept bright and airy with limestone and marble plus an abundance of windows. “The light,” the husband says, “is something we loved.” While in Miami on an overseas trip, the wife met with designer Maite Granda, whose style she had seen and liked online. For their interview, the homeowner brought along a photo book she created that essentially offered a roadmap to their family with profiles, likes, sports, and hobbies to navigate through the design. They immediately clicked, and Granda’s passion for designing children’s rooms was a value-added perk that the mother of three appreciated. “She painted a picture for me of each of the kids,” recalls Granda. “She said, ‘My boy is very creative—always building; he loves Legos. My oldest girl is very artistic— always dressing up in costumes, and she likes to sing. And the little one—we’re still discovering her personality.’” To read more visit: https://maitegranda.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/LX_MIA11_HOM_Maite_12.compressed.pdf Rolando Diaz
