Children’s bedrooms are the perfect place to let your imaginative side shine. Children grow at a notoriously fast pace; so can their bedrooms keep up? Revamping your child’s room decor every few years can be an unwise use of time and money. The secrets to transforming your child’s bedroom as they grow are: selecting a sophisticated colour palette, avoiding expensive theme décor and investing in pieces your kids will want to take with them when they leave the nest.

It is no surprise that children spend a lot of time in their bedroom, so their space should be a reflection of their personalities. Utilise wall space to create a grouping of framed photos, a gallery-style wall of artwork that will encourage them to keep expressing themselves as they grow up, or adorn their walls with canvases of their own drawings and works of art at various ages. This fun trend celebrates all styles of art, whilst making the room colourful and interesting as well as helping to enhance the creativity of your child.
A Forever Rug
Wall colour, bedding, and accessories often receive a lot of attention, it is the floor that goes unnoticed. The key here is to create a flawless balance of mature style with cute features, a room like this can then easily be customised as your child grows up.

Accessories play a major role while designing your kids bedroom, so it’s important to keep the canvas neutral and sophisticated, add the fun with fixtures and fittings that are inexpensive and easily replaced through your child’s different phases. Crafting some decorative bunting or printing your own graphics for framing is a great way to catch the do-it-yourself fever. One of our favourite DIY accessories to add to your child’s bedroom is a cosy tipi corner, where they can hang out and have space for their imagination.
Invest for the Future
Well-designed investment pieces will follow your kids through their childhoods and teach them how to appreciate and live among beautiful things from an early age. Selecting pieces that will work for their current phase, their next phase and anything that might come after is the smartest decision you can make when decorating a child's room. Ideally, you want to choose furniture that is built to withstand the test of time and to serve multiple functions, especially when looking to transition a room from space for an infant to a space fit for a child.
How about a crib come child’s bed or a changing table come desk, to see your child from baby to primary school?
