There are endless possibilities that are fun, inspiring, educational and playful when it comes to creating a child’s bedroom. From stylish cabin beds for kids to interactive climbing walls for toddlers and whimsical enchanted forest themes to educational and fun chalkboard wall-paint walls, here are four creative kids bedroom ideas that will ensure your child can be expressive, energised and productive in their own little space.
1. Cabin beds
Sometimes known as captain beds or mid sleepers, cabin beds are a great way to maximise floor space whilst making a child’s bedroom truly unique. Mid sleeper cabin beds are the perfect height for younger children and offer lots of space beneath them for you to add your own storage ideas, reading nooks or contained play areas. Treehouse cabin beds make a beautiful addition for mini explorers, combining a cosy sleeping area with a Robinson Crusoe faraway feel. Mid sleepers with pull-out desks and additional storage cubs work really well for school-age children who love to stay organised whilst cabin beds with cosy inbuilt tents underneath are perfect for midnight feasts and sleepovers.
2. Chalkboard walls
Creating a room with a chalkboard wall is easy to do with either blackboard paint or vinyl stickers that adhere to the wall. Perfect for getting the creative juices flowing on rainy days that require indoor play, a chalkboard wall is great for practising art, playing games and laying ideas down. Whether children want to start writing out their alphabet, play noughts and crosses or share notes and stories with their friends, a chalkboard wall is easy to make, use and wipe clean. It adds a really expressive element to a children’s room, providing hours of fun even in a compact space.
3. Climbing walls
For toddlers that are always on the go and love exploring, a climbing wall is a fantastic interactive addition to the bedroom that will help expend lots of energy. Offer them the ultimate playroom by bringing outdoor adventure in with a dedicated activity zone that includes a climbing wall and rope swing. These can be either bought or made, following instructions closely and adhering to all safety advice. Keep the climbing wall the height of a bunk bed ladder and be sure to use lots of padding and cushions on the floor. Plastic climbing rocks are easy to attach to a bedroom wall and encourage children’s hand-eye coordination, strength and balance.
4. Enchanted forest
Create a magical theme inside a kid’s bedroom using all the elements of an enchanted forest for a soothing space that’s perfect for imaginative play and restful sleep. Use forest themed wallpaper, ambient fairy lights and mini tepees to bring that fairy-tale feel to life. This theme is great for treehouse cabin beds and can be decorated with toadstool shaped cushions and a fairy-tale castle dolls house or Peter Pan style cubby holes and pirate printed cushions. Enhance your little one’s love of daydreaming and imaginative play and fill the room with their favourite fairy-tale books and soft toys.
