At some point, you may have thought about decorating ideas for your children’s rooms. You just want to make your child’s living quarters more fun and stylish than your own. The best part is, you can play around with different designs. The sky’s the limit!

For your kids’ spaces, you’re not constrained with the colors and patterns that you use. You do want to think about how well they’ll fit with all the other elements of the bedroom. Ultimately, you want to build a livable space for your child. At their age, they’re very active and like to move around. With these tips, you can easily style a children’s room that your kids will surely love.


Mix and match contrasting colors

Mixing contrasting colors is a great way to bring out the vibrancy of your kids’ rooms. As much as possible you want to make this room a reflection of themselves. The brighter, bolder, and more outrageous the colors are, the better.

You can add a splash of color to any part of the room. For walls that come in a lighter shade choose contrasting colors that can separate each element in the room. You can add any contrast to different parts of the room — it’s all up to you, really. For floors, using a darker-shaded wood is a perfect contrast to a lighter shade wall. Ceramic wood-look flooring is a good option as this has better grip which allows your child to move around without worrying for accidents.


Add unique accents

Adding accents is the key to imbibing a sense of texture in children’s rooms. Accents are found everywhere — from the bedding, linen, pillows, lighting, furniture, wall, floor, carpets. The list is endless, in fact, even your kids’ favorite toys could be considered as accents.

As much as possible, you’ll want to make the accents as playful as possible. Take this redecorating activity as a collaborative opportunity between you and your child. If they want to include their favorite cartoon character prints, then let them. Complement this by adding your own touch — add some kid-friendly patterned carpeting, bedside tables, study desks, or even miniature indoor plants.

It’s also essential to invest in timeless flooring because kids have a tendency to constantly run around and play in their rooms. Matte and rustic surfaces are proven to be the ideal option due to their slip-resistant qualities and hassle-free maintenance.

There’s no doubting that all of these elements will eventually come together to form a fun-loving room that your kids will love.

Children just love to play with their toys. The thing is, they may not always know how to keep them in place. In fact, you might find your children’s toys just strewn all over the floors of your house. While teaching them the importance of neatness and cleanliness is important, the best way to emphasize this is through their bedrooms or play spaces.

As much as you want your kids’ rooms to be playful, you also want to make sure that it’s organized. The best way of doing this is by adding neat and nifty storage drawers, cabinets, boxes, compartments, or slats that can go well with the overall design of the room.

During your redecorating make sure that you leave out enough room size for these storage accents. You can paint and customize them to add a splash of color. For something more minimal, go for cabinets or small drawers that come in basic tones, like white, gray, black, or pastel. You can also exercise your creativity by adding custom-built storage designs like built-in drawers, slats, or floating shelves.

Color is undeniably an important factor as to how the look of your children’s bedroom will come together. Pastel colors were originally a trend that came about some time during the 50’s and 60’s but is becoming more and more of a staple for contemporary interiors. Going with pastel can even serve as a stylish yet practical option for when your child transitions from the toddler to adolescence stage.

As previously mentioned, matte surfaces are the best flooring choice for children’s rooms – the M77 is another great example. This high-quality textile design provides slip-resistant qualities that will give you more peace of mind when your child plays and does physical activities.
