9 Cool & Creative Rooms For Kids
The biggest difference between interiors designed for kids and interiors designed for adults is the level of creativity. As adults, we want our rooms to have a certain degree of intelligence, artistry, coordination, and self-control. Our living quarters have to be functional, but also display a keen eye for aesthetics.
On the other hand, a child’s room presents designers with an opportunity to go wild, to let loose their creative energies and add dazzling colours, vivid textures, cool furniture, fun art, and anything else they want! So while adults may prefer a more disciplined approach to their own bedrooms, decorating for our kids gives us that rare chance to follow our imagination without restraint—and for a brief moment feel like a child again.
Check out these 9 amazing examples of bedrooms built for kids.
1. Without Limits
The exact opposite of understatement, this room shows off the child’s love of cars and construction vehicles. Bright colours, a car-shaped bed, fun shelves and wallpaper—what kid wouldn’t want to spend his childhood growing up here?
2. Super Cute!
Warm colours and cartoon imagery make this room an absolute visual delight.
Besides the endearing natural wallpaper featuring a giraffe, elephant and tree, what grabs our attention is the unique shape of the bed. Its pinkish-orange colouring along with multiple pillows, hearts and a mini-ladder make it the most distinguished piece of furniture in this room.
3. Classy Kids
Unlike the previous examples, this child’s bedroom (while bright and playful) also shows a certain level of sophistication and maturity. We can see this from the Apple laptop which colour-coordinates with the pink cushions, as well as by the subdued gray palette of the walls and ceiling.
4. Room For Two
This room is made for a pair of siblings, and upon closer examination we discover their individual tastes: one prefers Iron Man and Thor while the other favors Spider-man and Mickey Mouse.
Either way, we realize how close these siblings are from the fact that instead of a two-tier bed, they have both mattresses pushed together on the floor. How cute!
5. Smart Decor For Smart Babies
A perfect example of how adults sometimes decorate with their own personal aesthetics in mind rather than the child’s. This room isn’t full of primary colours, cartoonish wallpaper or even a mobile hanging over the crib; instead, it employs a subtle pastel hue for the wall, exquisitely detailed wallpaper, and luxurious curtains.
All these design choices, along with the gorgeous wooden table, reveal how parents often want a mature look for their baby’s room, perhaps to teach their child the value of good taste from a very young age (much like those parents who play Mozart for their babies).
6. For The Grown Up Child
No, this isn’t a baby’s room. We can guess by the multiple pillow sets that this room belongs to someone far older, but with the soul of a child. Numerous toys along with a banana-shaped pillow keep this bedroom light and fun, balancing out the stark grays and subdued tone.
Sometimes a few childish additions to your room can help you feel young and carefree again.
7. Room For Play
At first glance it’s easy to miss the bed tucked away behind the large shelves. That’s because this room is devoted to one thing only: play!
The abundance of toys and a dedicated play area (as seen by the little round table in the corner) makes this room a play-time paradise.
8. Bright & Bouncy
While this room lacks the sea of toys found in the previous example, its use of bright colours, a race-car themed bed and wall ornament, plus LEGO figurines set right into the bed-frame more than make up for the absence of action figures.
9. Private Paradise
This room is full of everything a teenager could ever want: plenty of storage space for toys, comic books or collectibles, a great view of the outdoors, and a raised bed that lets you feel secure and higher up than everyone else.
Plus, there’s even a few secret compartments under your bed. How cool is that?
These nine rooms cover the full age spectrum, from babies, kids and teens to young-at-heart adults. They combine utility with creativity, resulting in interiors that are ideal for any child.
