Plan a great kid’s bedroom overhaul Planning a room overhaul for your kids is one task that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Color, design, uses and so much more thought go into this room. Master bedroom design can be easy, as an adult’s likes don’t change as often as children and most of us are done growing. Therefore a child’s room needs more planning before any final decisions are made.
Before you begin you should make a list off all the possible design elements that should be incorporated.
1. Is this room going to be shared? What are the ages of the children?
2. Will this room be used as a guest room later on? Do you plan to transition a younger child to this room in the years to come?
3. Color pallets? Can you change the style easy with the color you are going for?
4. Size of bed/beds? Do you plan on building custom bunkbeds?
5. Additional design: desk, book shelves, video game area, etc?
6. Child’s likes and dislikes? Special requests or Ideas for design and décor?
Once you have this list figured out you can start thinking about your design and décor plan for this bedroom overhaul.
Study areas are most successful if they focus the mind by filtering out distractions. A desk is great up against a wall (or room divider) so that there's somewhere for shelves and maybe a white board. You can DIY a room divider with bookshelves for a fast way to create a transition from one space into another. If you can create a study alcove so that the desk has a kind of sheltered feeling with its own light source that would be a great place to study.
When you're playing with bedroom layouts don't forget to include a chair with the desk - make sure there's space for it and that it doesn't get in the way of any door swings.
Rearrange the rooms:
Kids' bedroom design space requirements can often rival those of an adult couple, particularly if the kids are sharing. You can’t create one room for multiple children when you have only so little square feet to work with.
Sometimes it’s worth considering giving your kids the master bedroom. If there’s another bedroom that can accommodate a double bed and there’s a bathroom nearby why not use that? Especially if you could add an extra door to make those rooms more private. Maybe there’s another small bedroom that you could use for a dressing room. Combining other small bedrooms and the family bathroom might turn out to be a great master suite!
Now depending on the age of the child playing can mean very different things. It might mean Hot wheels or dolls houses. Getting older it might mean Lego or Miss World. Then at the tween and tween stage there might be hobbies to accommodate. Whatever the age there's often other children involved be it play dates or more like a social club!
We will leave you with a few extra tips:
1. Plan for a few years ahead.
2. Plan for each of the kids bedroom activities.
3. Use these kids’ bedroom design ideas to create as much space as possible.
