Every homeowner dreams about having the perfect home design feel – whether it’s their kitchen, living room, bathroom, or even their kids’ bedroom interior design.  

Designing a kid’s room is surely one of the most exciting parts of a home improvement project. And, there are many interesting options to choose from. 

Before you begin on a children’s room idea, consider what your child needs and wants in this space. This will also depend on your child’s age and their interest.

If you’re planning to work on your child’s bedroom, we’ve got a good starting point for you. Our expert architect has created a few fantastic kids’ bedroom interior design ideas to inspire you for the room makeover. The best part is that the bedroom layouts are meant for children in ages of transition and growth.

Having a great bedroom design will help stimulate your children’s senses, and develop their abilities, individuality, and creativity. After all, this is where they’ll spend most of their time. 

Our architect’s recommendations for a kid’s room 

First and foremost, before decorating a kid’s room, decide on its theme. It should be personal so that the kids’ individuality grows and develops and they feel a sense of belonging.

The smart way to go about your kids’ bedroom interior design is to keep it flexible so that it’s easier to change the style as your child reaches different age groups. Plus, it’s financially feasible too. 

A good way to keep the kids’ room design adaptable is by painting the walls a neutral color or having just an accent wall instead of painting all walls a bold color. Another way is to use versatile furniture that can grow with your child. For example, a bunk bed that can be later kept as two single beds or a study table that can be used as a bench as the child grows up.

It’s important that you use colors very carefully – avoiding bold hues that can be tiring. Cooler or softer colors, especially in the study or play areas, will help with your kids’ mental as well as physical well-being. 

Also, the lighting should be less and warmer in the rest area, and more and brighter for play and study spaces.

Other considerations

Avoid too much natural light as that can worsen the quality of your children’s sleep. Always use blinds or curtains to block exterior light when not required. 

If your children are afraid of the dark, have devices to regulate the light – adjusting it to a more intimate use at night. The dimmers will help combat these fears effectively.

Factor in a good storage area – with plenty of closets and drawers to keep things in order. Make the most of the space – while making sure that everything is easy to access and manageable.  

Below are some great types of room ideas and designs for children from 4 to 12 years old, with the same spatial dimension of 14.76ft x 10.83ft with an area of 159.84ft². However, the architect has utilized every space differently – with different strategies of functionality, furniture, and the number of beds.

The room is accessed through a sliding door so as to utilize the space to its maximum. All the room furniture is arranged in such a way that it leaves the play area in the middle.

There are two beds in an “L” shape, against the wall.

To the right of the bed, there’s a built-in desk unit on the upper wall, an open shelf for a television, storage on the right wall, and a closet that borders the three walls in a “U” shape.

This type of room can be on any floor of the house, but it’s preferable that it be on the same floor as the room of the parents or guardians. 

The size of the beds and furniture can be adapted to the next stage of growth up to 12 years. However, the type of room decoration can keep changing.

The enveloping headboard of the two beds, located where the two beds meet is easily one of the most interesting parts of the room decor.

The interior design is based on an abstract natural environment. There’s a beautiful wooden frame in the shape of a mountain that’s illuminated with some good lighting. Our architect recommends using colors on the closet and the furniture in such a way that they make the shape of the silhouette of a valley.

Interestingly, the wall decor depicts a sun (protrudes from the wall by 0.07ft), clouds (2.46ft x 1.18ft for the large one and 1.97ft x 0.95ft for the small one), and a tree with a trunk and branches. All these wall structures are made with molding to create a 3D effect.

The ceiling incorporates circular LED lamps. And, the pendant lights on top of the bed area have warm lights hanging in a beautiful way.

Room flooring

Our architect recommends wooden floors, round carpets, and cushions – according to the room design, the colors, and the tones of the textiles. This is where the children can play comfortably and interact with audiovisual equipment or toys.

Room lighting

LED lights to provide good ambient light – both direct as well as indirect lighting. There are lights hidden behind the furniture, cabinets, and the study desk. It’s a good idea to avoid excess light so that the children feel comfortable and calm in their space.

A 4.92ft x 3.94ft window, over the desk area, lets in natural light. Interestingly, there’s a warm light behind the sun to depict its rays. So it’s not only decorative but also serves a purpose. This intimate warm light will help when you want to read stories to the children.

The light-colored wooden beds measure 6.56ft x 3.28ft x 1.77ft and have six light-blue drawers for storage at the bottom of the 1.67ft x 0.98ft mattress. The bed headboards reach 3.28ft high while the width of the bed’s sides measures 3.28ft. The two single beds form the letter “L” and are in different directions. 

Room decor

Our architect has used cushions, sheets, blankets, and pillows with contrasting textures and patterns – mostly lines and chevron patterns. Soothing colors such as blue, green, turquoise, grey, and beige have been used to give the room a calming vibe. Do note the cushions and throw pillows in animal shapes – such as a zebra, koala, and an elephant – and a house and a cloud. 

The entire decor, including the sky blue wooden decorative screen over the beds, seems to complement the landscape theme.

A cohesive color palette is maintained through each of the elements. There are medium gray curtains, light tone wood floors (could be laminate floors or hardwood), and white walls. The same hues can be used regardless of whether it’s a boy’s bedroom or a girl’s bedroom.
