How to Create a Stylish and Functional Kid’s Room

You want to create the perfect kid’s room for your little princess, but lack some design ides that will spark your creativity? Well, you’ve come at the right place because as an interior designer with more than 5 years of experience in the industry I have plenty of ideas and tricks to share, especially when it comes to designing a functional and stylish kid’s room. As the place where your little one is supposed to play, rest, learn and enjoy her childhood, this area of the house should reflect an inviting ambience and have a nice layout that provides optimum comfort and function. Every element should be designed to serve both a practical and decorative purpose.

Many parents are focused on features like design, colour and pattern when choosing elements like furniture, décor, and textiles for the rooms of their kids, simply because the want to make the space look pretty and visually appealing to the often picky kid’s taste. However, choosing items based only on their design is the quickest road to creating a room that looks pretty but lacks function and elegance. That’s why smart planning of features like layout, material, colour scheme and décor is essential for achieving a chic, fun and practical design that every kid’s room should have.

There are a few factors to keep in mind when planning the design of the main living area of your princess. Choosing the correct size of furniture pieces like bed, kids chests of drawers, wardrobe, chairs and desk should be your priority when shopping. Make sure the pieces you choose suit the size of the room so you can arrange them properly while leaving enough free space where you kid can walk comfortably. To get the most of the available space you have at your disposal opt for multifunctional pieces like kids chests of drawers that can provide plenty of storage space, all while serving as a practical spot for arranging decorative elements.

In addition to choosing functional and well-designed furniture, figuring out what colour pallet will work best with your design scheme is also an important aspect of creating a beautiful and practical kid’s room. To avoid a vibrant mess of different shades opt for a neutral wall colour like beige, baby pink, or sky blue, which can be easily combined with a full spectrum of shades. For instance beige walls will go perfectly with purple or orange furnishings and decorations that will truly stand out against the simple pastel background.
