Stylish Child’s Bedroom Ideas
For the budding Princess in the family then look no further than the stunning Charlotte collection from one of our favourite designers Feather and Black. This beautifully crafted bed adorns a lightly coloured head and foot board and looks simply perfect teamed up with pretty creams and pinks (such as the Joules floral quilt from their accessory range) and would definitely lend itself to a lovely chandelier (or even the Safi table lamp for something a little more unusual and perfectly ‘grown up’). The Charlotte collection also offers both a bedside and dressing table – which features a lovely drafted mirror – not to mention that all important drawer for all things pretty and girlie!
Of course, not every family has their own wannabe Princess so if it’s more of a Captain’s look you’re after, then ahoy me hearties - we’ve got that one covered too!
Firstly, enter the practical yet utterly fun Clamber Doodle bed by Loaf. Whilst this trendy little number can certainly be used by girls as well, our designers automatically conjured up thoughts of all things nautical; not least of all because of its beautiful beached timber and detachable ladder for your little legs to quite literally climb aboard! And the fun certainly doesn’t end there - it also comes with loads of under bed storage and a funky chalkboard which of course, can either be used as a scribble or message board.
And if you’re really going full steam ahead then why not carry the pirate theme even further with the funky Rodnik Shark Fin Chair from Made! Talk about having a whale of a time, this fun and funky addition - shown here with matching nautical accesories - is definitely no small fry when it comes to making a massive statement in any room of the house!
Of course, one of the key things to remember when designing the ultimate kids’ room is to incorporate as much storage as possible (but without making it too obvious!); so why not keep it fun by adding the blue metal storage trunk from Habitat as your very own treasure chest? Not only will it add to the whole nautical theme but it’s also perfect for keeping that pirate hat dust free and ready to live another adventure! This particular trunk is available in two sizes and various colours also has side handles for easy carrying both on and off board!
If space isn’t quite on your side and you need to incorporate two big personalities into just one room then also be sure to check out Habitat’s Pongo range which will be a definite hit with all ages and has various configurations for added versatility. These lovely beds are finished in a sparkly clean white lacquer and are good on storage. In fact, it’s so user-friendly, even the ladder can be fitted on either side of the bed making it the perfect practical solution whatever type or shape of room you need to fit into.
Last (but certainly not least!) our team simply couldn’t resist mentioning another fun asset for any kids bedroom – and that’s the Mini Ritchie two seater sofa. Imagine, if you possibly can, a fun-sized sofa simply bursting with bright coloured buttons, squishy foam cushioning and tapered solid wood legs for a truly grown up feel … well, that’s the Mini Ritchie by Made in a nutshell! So why not treat your little Prince or Princess to a classic mid-century piece for that ultimate touch of luxury – not to mention a great place to entertain friends! Tears at bedtime? … No, we don’t think so!!!
