A children’s room can be so much more than just a place to sleep. It can be a place to explore, dance, conquer cities, and have tea parties. 

Children have limitless imaginations and their bedroom is the start of where all of that takes place and starts to develop. 

While a child’s bedroom should be functional, it can be beautiful and adventurous too! One of the best things about a well-designed kids’ bedroom is that it can provide support for their learning journey too. It’s not as difficult as you might think to create an incredible kids’ bedroom.

Children are natural sponges that love to explore. Positive affirmations and maps of the world will increase their self-esteem and confidence, while positive affirmations will show them how huge the world can be.

Make sure that you take into account your child’s wonderful personality as you create the room so that it is instantly somewhere that they can’t wait to be. 

Consider the use of color. Some colors are soothing and peaceful, while others are energizing and bright. As a result, consider utilizing something soothing. Blues and greens are great choices. Avoid yellow since it is harder for our brain to digest and generates low-level stress.


You will most likely start will some wallpaper – check out – or paint. Keep in mind the colors that your child finds the most enjoyable, and work with that. If the room is small, you might prefer to opt for lighter colors. 

The walls are also a prime place to hang photos, great posters, or frame any of your child’s achievements. 

We all love to achieve things, and it is special to see what you have displayed in your room. It is a big motivator to see them. Medals, rosettes, trophies, and certificates are all a reminder of the journey they are on. 

You can also use the wall space for affirmations. Affirmations can be an essential part of growing up, as they give children a boost of confidence. Some simple ones work for almost all children. 


  • I can achieve my goals.
  • I am special
  • I put my best effort into everything
  • I am loved and supported
  • I am intelligent and successful 


They are very simple but can significantly impact how your child tackles the rest of the day. It can also be worth adding in some new ones that your child has invented. 

You can create the affirmations together and use bright colors and swirly fonts to make them extra personalized. 


Not all children’s rooms are blessed with a lot of space. If you do have room, a small table and chairs can be great for sitting and coloring when they are little. But as your child grows, a desk and chair will be essential for them to study at. 

If there isn’t enough room for your child to have a whole desk and chair, then a fold-down wall desk and a fold-away chair can be the perfect space-saving option. 

When your child has a specific interest like travel, unicorns, or space, it makes a lot of sense to try and have that in the room somehow. This is an excellent opportunity to do a project together and create something for the room. The solar system is always a fun project, and a 3D jigsaw can be fantastic too. 

As your child grows and becomes more responsible with creative tools, make sure that they have a drawer or a small box dedicated to holding all of their pens, pencils, stampers, and more. 

So any time they feel like getting creative, they have everything they need. 


If you have a big reader on your hands, you will probably run out of space pretty quickly as their book collection grows. There are a few things that you can do here. You can have a one-in-one-out rule, where each time they get a new book, an old one should be donated so they can find a new home. 

And only have a select few on the shelving, or if you have the space, create a library wall. A few shelving units (screwed into the wall) should do the trick. It means that they can grow their collection as they grow. 

Sleeping space

There are more models and sizes of beds available than ever. Space-saving beds are one of the best inventions ever. A mid-size sleeper offers room underneath that can be used for desk space or pillow forts. 

The bedroom, rather than a place of punishment, should be a space of nurturing and retreat. We all need time to lay down and process the day, and children of all ages are no different. A child’s bedroom should be their own personal space. 

It is in your home but it’s also a small part of their safe space too. In some ways, allowing your children to create some rules in their rooms might not be a bad idea. You might want to consider not entering without knocking as a small gesture of personal space recognition. Alternatively, give kids a lot of influence about what they have in their room.

Of course, if you have multiple children sharing, there will likely be a little bit more contention over what there will be in the room. One might be a bookworm, while the other is a sports lover. 

Different parts of the room might need to be divided equally so that each child feels like they have their own space and sense of belonging within the home. 

While they are little, they might be more concerned with sleeping in the same place as their parents, but as they grow, children often seek the independence and personal space that their room will bring to them. And even if their idea of interior decoration doesn’t match your own, letting them indulge in what they love is some of the best foundations for becoming their person.
