Pickle says…..Just because my bedroom is sometimes (Sometimes? says Mummy!) messy doesn’t mean it can’t be cool. Children’s bedrooms are one of the few areas of the home where you can really go to town with some fun, fab, bold designs.
I love fun and funky children’s bedrooms – it shows how much you can get away with using bright colours that wouldn’t usually be seen in other rooms.
Bright and bold yellows, greens, blues and reds might be a bit bright for other rooms, but they are perfect for a fun kid’s room. With simple white furniture and plenty of storage space under the bed and in cupboards, it’ll be easy to clean and won’t run out of places to store all of those toys!
Another fab way to give your child’s bedroom a cool makeover is to give it a fun nautical theme. With classic blues and whites and some bold reds, it’s a design that everyone loves.
You can add stuff like framed maps, treasure chest storage units and anything seasidey! It also grows quite nicely with your child for a good few years too.
Even if your children aren’t into nautical themes, there are plenty of other cool ideas to try. From painting the room in the colours of your child’s favourite sports team (Or Super Hero in my case), to adding some Lego-inspired imagery, it’s a great way to use your imagination in fun new ways.
Using a theme such as Lego gives plenty of ways to keep the cost down when making a cool room design that won’t cost too much money.
One really important part of the bedroom that shouldn’t be skimped on is a quality bed and mattress. as this is the central part of your child’s bedroom. They don’t have to be too expensive or extravagant, just mega comfy to make sure that your little one enjoys a good night’s rest.
I share my bedroom with big bro Luke, so we had to think of something that would suit us both as there are ten years between us! Mummy chose bold and bright Spider Man red and blue for the walls, with red, blue and white wide striped curtains We have white furniture and I had cute pirate bedding when I was very small. We have Super Hero posters and a canvas on the wall.
We both love our Super Hero’s luckily, but these colours although very bold are a great base for lots of themes as we both grow older and change.
