Bedroom furniture for your children no longer has to be boring or cliché, thanks to some exciting new trends. Children’s rooms can be some of the most fun rooms to decorate, since imagination and originality are encouraged. But the scaled-down kids’ furniture of the past made creating a versatile and stylish space for your children a challenge.
Fortunately, a number of interior design professionals and fine furniture makers have created a new trend in design for the younger set. Read on to learn more about some fun ways to give your kids’ rooms an updated look.
Bookcases: A Flexible Statement Piece
Bookcases are for more than books! You can use a new bookcase in your youngster’s room to create an artful vignette. You can, for example, go modern with a metal bookcase in a fun color like mint and use it arrange toys, collectibles and books for your child. It’s like a functional piece of art that will grow and change with them.
Functional Seating Options
Children love having a special place to sit and be comfortable in their room, to read, study or play games. Incorporating a chair (or two) that is a bold color or that features a fun silhouette can add a lot to a space. Based on the theme or color scheme you and your child select for the space, choose a complementary but bold color to make a decorative statement.
Begin with the Nursery
If you’re expecting a new bundle of joy, this is a great opportunity to buy furniture that will grow with your little one. You can choose from a variety of cribs that convert to a full-sized bed as they grow. These flexible pieces are available in many finishes and styles, from traditional to contemporary.
Creative Storage Solutions
One of the best parts of decorating kids’ rooms is finding fun ways to create storage. You can purchase headboards with built-in storage and shelving units that add a pop of color as well as a functional element to the room. You can even use display cubes on the wall to create fun cubbies for storing sports equipment, toys and collectibles.
Creative Sleep Solutions
You can find almost anything for your child’s room that you can find in adult sizes. Furniture manufacturers are no longer stuck on whimsy when it comes to children’s furniture. You can find sleigh beds, distressed beds and even padded headboards for your child.
If you want to go with something out of the box, try a loft bed or traditional bunk beds ― these are functional as well as fun. Many options are designed to help you get the most out of a small space, incorporating desks, storage and extra seating.
