Designing your child’s bedroom should be an exciting time for both you and your little one, but of course there are obstacles you have to go through when deciding colours, furniture and all the added extras you both like. Your child wants bright colours and their favourite cartoon characters all over the walls, where as you want something a little more in sync with the rest of your décor. Would you believe it if someone said there IS a solution?
Here are 5 stylish bedroom ideas to make you and your child happy.
Sleepovers may be a fun idea for your little one, but as a parent they can be quite intimidating! Not only do you have to keep both your child and their friend entertained, there’s things like providing food and snacks everyone can agree on and most importantly – where are they going to sleep? A trundle bed is the answer! These type of beds have a large drawer with a mattress underneath creating the perfect space for sleepovers, all you have to do is pull it out and throw on a duvet. Problem solved!
If you’ve been the boss (and rightly so!) for the majority of the design process, why not let your little one make a few design decisions, letting them choose things such as the pillows for their bed can get them involved in the decorating and put a smile on their face! Clutter pillows come in all shapes and sizes and there are hundreds of designs to make you both happy.
Sorted with Storage
Before designing a new bedroom for your child, you may have attempted to have a clear out, but we all know children like to keep hold of EVERYTHING. If you’re struggling to find any extra floor space for storage furniture, then a midsleeper or cabin bed is your space saving solution. Designed to keep clutter at bay, midsleeper and cabin beds can include freestanding storage drawers, bookcases and even desks!
Bookcases are a great way to store your child’s favourite and most treasured books, but have you thought of using them to store other bits and pieces? Take advantage of all the shelves and store something different on each shelf, this could include: photo albums, trinkets and soft toys.
Pretty and Personalised
If you’ve chosen a practical bed finished with a beautiful colour, why not add a personal touch by putting your child’s name on the footboard? Not only will this enhance the design of the bed, it will no doubt excite your child by giving them a sense of ownership. Bespoke children’s furniture company Ollie & Leila have a personalisation service to make the process a little easier for you.
