Space-saving and decoration ideas for your child’s bedroom

With so many creative storage solutions, furniture pieces and decorating possibilities, you can have all sorts of fun creating or updating your child’s bedroom. If your children’s room design is looking a bit uninspiring and in need of an interior design update, consider these space-saving bedroom furniture and decorating tips that will ensure your child’s bedroom remains a stimulating space.

We understand that decorating a child’s bedroom can sometimes feel like a challenge as they grow up so fast. This is why all of our designs are adaptable, so they can be a fun space for years to come.

Space-saving ideas for kids rooms

If you’re looking to make the most of the interior design for your child’s bedroom, it’s important to consider storage. As they grow up, it’s probable that they will accumulate much more belongings, and pre-planning with extra storage will ensure that there is room to grow. Allow for plenty of storage for your child’s treasured belongings, books, toys and games. But make it fun with some of our favourite children bedrooms designs and ideas!

Space-saving girls bedroom ideas

As a space-saving single bed idea, a trundle bed is perfect for sleepovers and ideal in bedrooms that are tight on space as they provide additional storage space – simply keep it tucked in whenever you don’t need it or roll it out at night when it’s time to sleep.

The pink trundle bed in the girl’s bedroom of our Richmond family home has been designed bespoke as a trundle bed for sleepovers and has a soft sheer canopy draped from the ceiling and twisted around gentle tiebacks.

The design of the twin’s bedroom in our St John’s Wood family home considers areas of storage specifically for each child. Aside from the space saving single beds for the two girls, plenty of built-in shelving keeps the play area clear while a space-saving desk is another space where children can enjoy drawing or reading for hours.

Boys bedroom storage and shelves

Incorporate a ladder into joinery to climb up and over the piece or design the joinery to include a swing or climbing wall. Geometric shelving is a great choice to add individuality, colour and encourage a tidy room. If the space you are creating is for more than one child, allow for designated areas or storage specifically allocated to each child. This will allow for a sense of ownership and independence in the development of your children’s individual personalities.

The blue and grey boys bedroom will easily mature as the child grows up, but the pops of colour still add a youthful and fun touch.

Children’s bedroom shelves and built-in desks

Create a multi-functional environment that is both stimulating and entertaining by making space for your child to learn and play. Create a built-in desk or homework area with purpose-built shelving for books and equipment to save space and keep the floor as free as possible.

Children’s bedroom colour schemes with room to grow

A children’s bedroom decoration idea that is changeable and that can adapt to your child as he or she grows will save you time and money in the long run. Our approach is to keep the palette balanced and neutral with softer shades of colour. Neutral colours will open up a small room and the furniture can be adapted as your child gets older. Likewise, accessories such as wall stickers or Velcro shapes can be used for a themed space that can be easily changed.

Decorating a boys bedroom is a fun project to incorporate their favourite gadgets and toys, which is why we used bespoke joinery in the shelves to provide plenty of storage space for toys, books and technology.
