Bunk Beds

.

Bunk beds are a great way to utilise space in a bedroom. You can either have a double bunk bed with a mattress on the bottom level, as well as a mattress on the top level. Another great way to utilise space through the use of bunk beds is to have a mattress on the top level, and a different space on the bottom level. This could be a work space, a living space or even a play station. The same thing can be done where the mattress is on the bottom level, and the play space is above. The following images show some beautiful ways to introduce a bunk bed into a children’s bedroom.

If you would prefer to have a ‘standard’ bed for your child, or do not have any spacial constraints, there are so many designs out there. You could have a built in bead with headboard, or a freestanding bed. A poster bed or a canopy bed with drapes always make for a feature in a space.

Here are some images of beds that your children are sure to love! Please remember that a bed always needs to be paired with beautiful linen. These include pillows, scatters, sheets, duvets and throws. These items will help soften the space, and are a great way to introduce patterns, colours and textures.

 Wallpaper

.

When using wallpaper in a child’s bedroom, the possibilities are endless! There are so many patterns, colours and textures to choose from. Be careful to use wallpaper that is very immature, as your child is still growing, and may grow to dislike the wallpaper very quickly. Below are some beautiful examples of all sorts of wallpaper options to inspire you.

Learn and Play Area

.

A learn and play area is a vital part of a child’s room. This will help them on their life’s journey. This space can be filled with toys, activities and learning materials. We have chosen some learn and play inspiration images that are sure to work in your child’s bedroom.

Storage

.

One of the most vital elements in a children’s bedroom is storage… lots of storage. There are so many different storage types and spaces. From shelving, to cupboards and baskets. Storage lower to the ground is a great way to get children into a habit of putting away items once they have finished with them. Something too high will be way too difficult for them. Below are some fantastic ideas to use in your child’s bedroom.

We could help turn your child’s bedroom into a sanctuary.
