Forget wallpaper runners that match crib linings, pink for girls, and almost-too-cutesy stuffed animals all over the place. Today’s kids’ rooms are ditching the kitsch for cool. If you’re about as up-to-date on what’s trendy with kids’ rooms as you are with what children watch on TV, don’t worry. Here are five inspiring kids’ bedrooms that will get your wheels turning, whether you’re crafting a room for a teen or a tot.
Sci-fi can be chic, as evidenced by this adorable robot wallpaper that uses a gorgeous shade of green. The under-bed storage and armoire help keep clutter concealed, and the muted color palette makes this place feel relaxed, yet far from dull. Desk space and a reading lamp make this a teenager’s haven.
Stylish whimsy is the name of the game in this space. With a red and white dotted area rug, bright yellow chair, elephant mobile, and adorable lettering done in various textiles, this room is colorful without being cliché.

We know, we know. Brown definitely isn’t the first color that comes to mind when creating a child’s room. However, this space put the hue to work, and the result is one of the most sophisticated nurseries we’ve ever seen. It also wins in terms of function (look at all that storage space!), with a comfy chair near the window perfect for coddling your little one when late-night fits hit, a cradle, a changing table, and did we mention the storage space?
This kiddie area is cool and quirky, with plenty of space to play. Older children will love the cool lounge/sleeping area and desk space, and little ones have a perfect place for tea parties. Wonderland-worthy shelving and striped walls make this room playful and fun.
When you’re a kid, sharing a room with a sibling can be a real downer. But maybe that wouldn’t be the case if all dual-occupancy kids’ rooms looked like this. Built-in bunks, bright colors, and a cluster of paper lanterns make this a great space to hang out, and we love how the puzzle-piece rug and bright cushions create the perfect area for video game time.
