Why Do You Need Children’s Bedroom Decor?

Dependant on the age of your child, the budget for their bedroom may be slightly different. Newborn bedroom designs are very simplistic and usually are pink, blue or beige. The only costly parts of their bedroom decor are the cot, wardrobe and other decor essentials; you can keep it very minimalistic.

At the age of a toddler is when your children will perhaps begin asking to decorate their bedroom. Simply because they look at storybooks and see images of princess bedrooms and superhero lairs.

There are plenty of fun decor ideas out there which you can do with a bit of DIY to make it slightly more cost-effective. So if you want to know some cool bedroom designs for your children, we have devised a list of the top bedroom design ideas for kids. So keep reading!

Zoo Theme

A zoo or jungle themed bedroom is a popular choice for both genders. You can do so much with this bedroom design that it’s one of the best bedroom designs to date. Start off with green or cream walls to replicate the jungle or the colours of a desert.

If you are very artistic and have experience in home design or know somebody who is, then why not paint animals onto your child’s wall? If you don’t feel comfortable enough to do this then not to worry, you can buy animal stickers online of some of the most famous animals in the wild.

If you don’t want to take this approach, purchase animal print wallpaper and match your child’s decor options with fun accents and furniture options. For extra details, add some trees which are either painted or stickers. And complete the jungle/zoo themed bedroom with an authentic wooden bunk bed. We love the ones on Happy Beds.

Circus Themed

Another bedroom idea that’s suitable for both boys and girls. Everybody loves the circus, perhaps not clowns, but there are plenty of other fun aspects of the circus or the funfair.

The design in this fun bedroom design doesn’t have to be very extravagant or complicated. Get red and white bunting and place it around the ceiling of your child’s bedroom to replicate the bunting that is often used in circus tents and at the funfair. If you have any ideas on where else you can use it, then it can be a great design option.

If your son/daughter is slightly older, then look for lettering pieces online that you can hang on the wall over the headboard of their bed. Spell out words like “Fun” to flow with the bedroom design. We found some here on The Wooden Letters Company.

Tree House Theme

Have your child experience the same childhood as you with a tree-house themed bedroom. Most tree house-themed bedrooms are painted a green or brown, beige colour to replicate the outdoors.

The comes the decorating part, use fake leaves to stick onto the bunk bed or wooden platform to resemble being up in the treetops. Then you can add your own personalised twist to your child treetop retreat. Why not get personal and purchase a chalkboard and have your child draw ” your child’s name entry only”. This will make your child feel like they have their own personal space and like they have control of their private area.
