    Stylish, space-saving ideas for your kids’ bedroom

    Is it possible to create a kids’ bedroom that’s stylish while also saving on space? We certainly think so. Here are our top tips.

    A sweet place to sleep

    When it comes to optimising space in style, and deciding what to include in a kid’s bedroom, a suitable bed is the best place to begin. And, although investing in a mattress that is both age-size appropriate and large enough to accommodate your child as they grow is important, so too is the bedframe in which they sit. 

    Novelty beds – such as those shaped like race cars – are certainly fun. But, run the risk of dating quickly among children with a tendency to lose interest quickly. 

    Instead, our suggestion is to invest in a more classically shaped kid’s bed. Examples include a platform bed (which sits close to the floor making it accessible for little legs), cabin beds that feature inbuilt storage solutions, or even a quality bunk bed – which can be used as two-stand alone beds or stacked to save space, according to your family’s needs. And then use accessories to update its appearance. 

    You could try crisp navy striped sheets to create a nautical look for aspiring sailors, plush pink pillows for those passionate about the princess life, or loosely draping the bedhead with a leopard-print throw to channel jungle vibes. 

    Storage solutions to keep your kids’ room clean

    As well as buying beds with built-in storage, such as hidden bookcases and shelving units included in the frame, functional furnishings can help to save space in your kids’ bedroom – and ensure it looks stylish in the process. 

    These include a multipurpose chest, floating shelves, drawer inserts and hooks on the backs of doors to ensure there is “a place for everything and everything is in its place.

    Finally, to optimise space in a kids’ bedroom while keeping it stylish, get smart with styling.

    To start, pick a theme that complements both the child’s personality and the rest of your home. Then, choose a few pieces that showcase your child’s individual interests. Try a feature bookshelf with rows of colour-coordinated novels, wicker baskets and wooden trunks which make a pretty (and practical way) to keep toys packed away, or an easy-to-update art gallery, featuring framed versions of their personal works – which prove that creating a kid’s bedroom that’s both stylish and space optimised is child’s play!
