Proper wall art is vital to every space, but it may be even more important in bedrooms where there are typically fewer design elements to add visual interest. Whenever possible, use wall decor to anchor each of the distinct function areas in your space, such as above the bed, beside some seating and in the dressing space. Then, add other artwork to any walls that feel too blank. When choosing the pieces that will decorate your walls, try to keep variety in mind. Play with colors, textures and artistic materials for the artwork itself, and don't be afraid to mix different sizes, shapes and frame styles.

Speaking of…under the bed storage such as rollaway drawers is always helpful in creating more space and can hold seasonal or limited use items. Storage chests with cushions can be used as a seat to a play table as well as conceal a mountain of toys. A wall unit with drawers can pull double duty as a dresser and desk. Shelving is super convenient for toy organization as it doesn‘t take up a lot of space and can be placed above dressers, desks, even above the door for hardly used items. Similarly, placing a bookshelf at the foot of the bed doesn‘t take up valuable wall space and may even give you another surface near the bed for a lamp or nighttime book. For clothing, wall and door hooks are helpful for every-day go-to items. In the closet, install two rods (i.e. double hanging) so each child can have separate hanging space. Regardless of your design challenge, when creating a shared room for your little ones if you stick to resourceful, efficient, fun and creative choices, you‘ll no doubt create a bedroom your kids will love!
Cut a thin wood panel in the size you'd like for your headboard, spray glue some foam batting to pad the wood a bit and wrap your fabric nicely in the front while stapling in the back. Headboard ideas that are contemporary include creating a long headboard panel that not only frames your bed, but your nightstand, too, like the room in the image above. Another non-traditional way to create a cool, modern headboard is by using the panels unconventionally. Hang the panel vertically instead of horizontally. Group two narrow, vertical panels with a gap in-between. The headboard design above is not only different but changes with the bedding. The homeowners remove the coordinating striped runners and replace them with new ones that go with the fresh, new bedding.
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.
