There are lots of components to take into account when creating and styling kids’ bedrooms. How do you keep the space safe and efficient, while still making it a fun area for your child to spend time in? A child’s bedroom shouldn’t just be for sleep!
From a soothing nursery for your baby to a play area for your toddler (and beyond), you can create an eye-catching room of their own. Be sure you take into account your child’s personality as they grow so the room really fits their unique tastes, too!
Kids’ bedrooms can be so much fun. When else are you going to create a space specifically for your young one, adding tons of life and color? We’ve gathered 5 important tips to think of when you’re styling your child’s nursery or bedroom to ensure a nurturing environment every step of the way.
1. Use A Theme In Your Kid’s Bedroom
The first way to tackle the style of their room is to find a theme and stick with it throughout the room. Your theme can be anything — think TV/literary/movie characters, animals, nursery rhymes. Start with one of your favorites and build on it to create a loving environment for your young one.
A great way to incorporate a theme into your kid’s bedroom is to utilize custom picture frames. Use pages from your favorite children’s book, words from a special nursery rhyme, pictures of family photos or drawings to match your room’s color and theme!

In addition, consider enhancing your theme with a simple color scheme. Long gone are the days when a boy’s room was blue and a girl’s room was pink. Color schemes can be bright and bold or muted and monochromatic. It’s all a matter of taste. Color schemes can tie the room’s theme together and complete the feel you’re going for.
2. Consider Storage And Space
As they grow, young kids can be messy. Try and avoid clutter and mess by incorporating as much storage space as you can within their room. This can be done with lots of shelving units, bins, and closet space. You’ll definitely be thankful for extra storage space when your little one’s toy collection grows as quickly as they do!

In addition, consider setting aside a work or play space in the room. A small table or reading corner will be a great addition to the room. It doesn’t have to be big (after all, your child isn’t!) but it can add so much to the space.
3. Incorporate Their Interests
Every child is different, so be sure you capture their personality by incorporating their interests into their bedroom. Whether it’s their favorite movie, a sport they love to play, or an obsession with the zoo, a child is sure to love their room if you accessorize and incorporate that into their decor. Perhaps you have a budding artist. Why not frame his or her work and display it on their bedroom walls?

4. Make Room For Two
Perhaps your kids share a room and you need to create a space for two. Chances are they have different interests, and styling their bedroom can include differing personalities while using some unifying pieces.
For example, you can use matching patterns and color schemes but still showcase their individual interests. For example, if one is a Patriots fan and the other loves Spiderman, go with a red and blue theme. The important thing is to ask your kids what they’d like in their room and come up with something that will work for all. Bedrooms for two allow you to get doubly creative!

5. Keep It Fun!
It is definitely necessary to add some fun into your kid’s bedroom, especially as they get older. Quiet time and sleep is obviously important to their development, but so is playtime and using their imagination. It’s all part of creating a nurturing and stimulating environment for them to grow in!
