When decorating a kids room, obnoxiously colored walls don‘t have to be your first step. In fact, we believe that keeping walls white or gray and adding in smaller bits of color gives you even more possibilities to make a kids room creative and playful. That, and it will keep you from repainting when they outgrow lime green or Barbie pink walls in three years. Trust us. When it comes to finding colorful accents, first consider what your child already has. Children‘s books and stuffed animals are often fun colors, so put them in a place that doubles as decor. Wall decals, bedding, and rugs all can add color and pattern to a kids room, but can be easily changed with age.
Even the industrial feel of corrugated sheet metal can be softened by an intricate decorative cut. Metal may not be appealing to every taste, but there are a lot of options for the DIYer to make a signature headboard from this versatile material. Even more than the creative potential in the first three categories, free-form headboards give you endless design freedom. You can use almost anything: pillows grouped into a display, pieces of driftwood or bamboo against the wall, vintage books adhered to a piece of backing.
This bedframe is a funky statement piece that says big girl without saying too big. A decal, a floral pillow, and touches of color make this kids room sweet and simple. The collection of children‘s books and mixing of patterns on this bed compliment the cool tones in the rest of the kids room, leading to a youthful-yet-sophisticated style. This bed is literally stacked, and we love it. Nautical goes whimsical while a pile of patterns on a bright white canvas. The blueprints in their yellow frames complement the space perfectly.
Buy foam board that is somewhere between 2-5 thick. Have the shop cut it for you on squares or rectangles of your choice. Wrap each panel with fabric and mount on the wall with easily removable Command hanging strips. For a unique look, use different sized shapes and varying color fabrics to create a custom mosaic-effect headboard. If your bed is up against a corner, add a low-profile headboard to two walls creating a corner headboard. For an elegant, finished look like the room above, add a modern, tailored bed skirt in the same headboard fabric to your bed. Create a headboard that is bold and artistic with the following headboard ideas. If you want to give your room a contemporary look, go with a big scale. That means building your headboard up to the ceiling or using oversized art.
Sometimes its not just Jeremy and Sarah that you need to accommodate, but a 3-year-old Jeremy and a 4-month-old Sarah can definitely add another layer of design anxiety. The first thing to tackle is the furniture layout. If you have a baby, chances are you‘ll be in and out of the room at night to tend to the baby. If possible, place their beds in opposite corners or walls with the crib being most accessible to the door. Obviously structural elements such as windows and heaters can dictate otherwise but your design objective is to give each child the most comfortable night‘s sleep without one waking the other. Creating a play area that both siblings can enjoy, even simultaneously, is super helpful, especially for tired mommies and daddies. Floor mats, cushions and soft larger items like a rocking horse and tents are perfect to outline the area and fun for both to play in. Place your older child`s toys in accessible storage containers, but higher than the floor so your youngest can‘t easily touch it.
