5 Design Tips To Bring Luxury To Your Children's Bedroom
Creating a luxurious bedroom for your children not only gives them a wonderful environment to grow up in, but it also impacts the overall style of your home. Whether you opt for a lively and bright bedroom for your children or choose a more classic look that they will grow into, your child's bedroom decor should look effortlessly inviting whilst also being well organised with plenty of storage space.
It's important to balance style with practicality. A child's bedroom should be a safe place for them to play, read, do homework, and get a good night's sleep but that doesn't mean you can't add a touch of luxury to the space.
We have gathered some design inspiration to help you create a peaceful bedroom space for your children.
Choose A Neutral Colour Scheme That Will Grow With Them
A neutral colour scheme will help create a peaceful ambience as well as offer the perfect solution to prevent your children from outgrowing their space. Although you may want to create a fun bedroom for your children to enjoy, decorating the entire room with bold, bright colours could overwhelm the space and make it difficult to find coordinating pieces of furniture. With neutral walls, you can easily change the whole look of the bedroom by switching up the colour of your accessories and soft furnishings.
Consider choosing bedding with a neutral colour scheme too. Opt for a soft, subtle classic white, nautical navy or classic grey. Investing in luxury bedding in timeless tones means it will continue to look stylish as your little one grows up.
Create A Feature Wall For A Touch Of Fun
If you're choosing neutral tones for most of the bedroom, creating an accent wall within a child's room can open up the space. It will give the room a lively feel without compromising on the overall look of the bedroom.
Experimenting with colours that complement a neutral palette will help tie a feature wall into the rest of the decor. With bold, rich colours, you can add a touch of elegance to the room.
Here's a bit of inspiration to help you create a feature wall for your child's bedroom:
- Introduce a stylish canvas print.
- Create a gallery wall with a variety of framed photographs and prints.
- Use tonal patterned wallpaper.
- Get creative with a lick of paint.
Master Monochromatic Styling
Do you have a pre-teen who has outgrown vivid colours but doesn't want a plain white bedroom? A monochrome colour scheme can transform a bedroom into a more grown-up space, whilst still encapsulating that all-important snug feeling. Use white bedding as the foundation and use a range of tonal cushions and throws with different textures to introduce more depth and colour. Take a look at our blog for more inspiration on how to dress a bed like a designer.
There are many ways to make a monochrome colour scheme feel warm and cosy. Hanging fairy lights for a peaceful glow or introducing a bedside lamp will create a relaxing atmosphere. Natural materials such as a wooden bed frame or wool rug can also help form a more welcoming space that your children will love spending time in.
Put Comfort First With A Single Mattress
It's easy to get so caught up in planning the finer details of creating a stylish, tranquil ambience that you may forgo one of the most essential elements of a child's bedroom - a comfy bed. Our collection of superior single mattresses will help your little one get a great night's sleep.
A bed is often the focal point of any bedroom. Once you've chosen the perfect bed frame and a comfortable mattress to match, you can then start to furnish the space around it to help create a truly inviting environment.
Choosing The Right Bedding For Your Child
High-quality bed linen helps contribute to a restful sleep. Therefore, whilst decorating your child's bedroom, it's also important to consider the bed linen you choose. Opting for soft materials, like 100% cotton, will take care of your children's skin especially if it's sensitive. As a naturally breathable material, cotton allows more air to flow and can absorb moisture which will help combat overheating as your child sleeps.
Get Creative With Your Space
Regardless of room size, one of the best ways to transform a child's bedroom into a haven of comfort is by maximising the space available. Using walls for storage and other decorative items is a great way to ensure the floor is kept clear for play, whilst also making the room feel larger and airier for a luxurious feel.
Add floating shelves
Using floating shelves is a great way to display your children's favourite night-time reads, special toys and keepsake trinkets. Full-sized cabinets can compromise floor space so by utilising shelves, you can help free up some extra room. Filling empty areas on the wall with a decorative bookshelf feature can also help add diversity to a small room.
Make use of underbed storage
Another fantastic way to make the most of limited space is by utilising the area underneath the bed to store toys, throws and cushions. Look at stylish storage boxes that will easily slip away under the bed and discretely house your child's favourite toys.
Display clothing on a rack
Display your child's favourite outfits on a clothing rack to inject personality into the room. Opting for an open display rather than a closed wardrobe is also a quick, easy solution for hanging clothes. Keep that luxury feel by choosing to display clothes with similar hues to the colour scheme of their bedroom.
Introduce little touches of luxury
Creating a stylish bedroom for your children doesn't always require huge changes. There are a few simple ways you can easily add a luxurious feel:
- Layer cushions and throws on the bed to create a cosy space. This can make a bedroom feel warmer and more inviting.
- Use beanbags or large cushions to create a cosy reading nook. This will help create a comfortable space for your children to enjoy some of their favourite activities.
- Add a rug to make the space feel warmer and more comfortable. A rug can go a long way in a bedroom and make it feel much more homely.
- Introduce a dressing table for practical use and extra decoration. This can help add a touch of elegance to the room whilst still being a practical addition.
- Add some greenery. Whether you choose real or artificial plants, bringing nature indoors can help add a peaceful and tranquil touch.
