6 Small Kids Bedroom Ideas
Big Top Parade
Part circus, part play room, this small kids bedroom design captures all the fun of the fair – complete with some clever space-saving furniture ideas.
A transforming wall unit made from wood and steel contains two beds, a closet, a pull out desk, blackboard and various nooks for the kids to play in. Talk about a multi-tasker! The red and white aesthetic is fun yet chic. We also love the exposed wood accents – they’re a great nod to the Scandi theme.
Nooks and Crannies
The best small kids bedroom ideas we’ve seen have one thing in common: they utilize every single nook and cranny of a space. And yes, that very much includes even the smallest of alcoves.
Here, a gap between two closets becomes the perfect spot for a modest wall desk. An open shelf provides room enough for storage whilst ensuring the space isn’t visually blocked by another piece of heavy furniture.
Between the warm woody tones and forest green drapery, this sweet hideaway reminds us of a rustic cabin in the woods.
When you haven’t got much in the way of square footage to work with, our advice is to design up! A common way to do this is to raise the bed in order to accommodate additional storage. As an added bonus, kids will love the tactile nature of their new layout.
Storage is indeed key. That being said, an excess of cabinets and closets can make a room feel dark and heavy. So what’s the solution?
Well, open shelves and plenty of baskets according to this sweet Scandinavian kids bedroom. Pro tip: opt for neutral hues in an effort to accentuate any natural light in your space.
Hide and Seek
Small kids bedroom ideas don’t have to be boring. All it takes is a little imagination.
Here, a raised bed hidden inside a barn-inspired closet is a simple way to score fun points with the kids.
When it comes to decorating small kids bedrooms, we advise throwing all our small space design tips at it.
