Designing your Children's Bedroom, Things to Do and Things to Avoid

September 21, 2023

When your child reaches a certain age, the chances are good that they'll want to put their own personal stamp on their particular corner of the home. And that's great news – but it'll be down to you as a parent to provide a moderating influence.

Putting together the bedroom of your child's dreams is often easier than you might think. Let's take a look at a few tips that'll get you off to the right start.

Stick to a theme

Your child might have become enthusiastic about one particular subject or other. This is great news, since it will allow you to come up with a theme for the bedroom. Themes help us to prevent visual incoherence – or, in other words, they stop everything from looking like a mismatched mess.

You might design a room around a favourite football player or club. You might make it all about spaceflight, or fantasy castles, or dinosaurs. What's important is that you choose just one thing, and then build everything else around it.

Think about longevity

Having said all of this, we should be aware that your child's tastes aren't going to remain fixed in place forever. Once they've grown up a bit, they might not be quite as enthusiastic about the theme in question.

For this reason, it's a good idea to invest in a few key items of furniture that are a little bit more neutral and hard-wearing. Quality furniture will fit with everything, and it'll last for years and thereby save you money, too.

Prioritise safety

There shouldn't be anything in the room that will put your child in danger. That means avoiding sharp edges, loose cords, and dangling curtains that can be climbed on. Put high-friction tape on the back of rugs, and make sure that freestanding shelving units are securely attached to the nearest available wall.

Multiple light sources

When it comes to lighting, it's best to spread things around. When you have multiple lights at multiple heights, you'll be able to eliminate shadows, and make the room feel much bigger. Then, when you come to unwind just before bedtime, you can turn a few of those lights out without plunging the room into total darkness.

Experiment with several light sources. If your child is old enough, then you might even consider fairy lights – just make clear that they aren't to be touched!
