Decorating a child’s bedroom presents challenges not found elsewhere. For starters, considering the colours you’ll be using is a sticking point for a lot of budding interior designers. Like any challenges there are shortcuts, but when it comes to the cutting edge of modern design philosophy, falling back on the old blue for a boy/pink for a girl option can be merely a short-term solution.
Think outside the box with your child’s bedroom
Opening up the colour palette brings in a new world of sophistication. By making the same considered choices in the kids’ room as you do in every other room in your home, you’re creating a stimulating space, a bedroom where the little ones can live, learn and grow.
Your choice of colour for the kid’s bedroom can affect how big it looks. Lighter colours open up the space and help you make better use of the light. Combined with the right multifunction, space-saving furniture you can give even the cosiest rooms a new, expansive feel. Browsing through our range of space-saving modern bunk beds and bed-cum-desk combos is sure to give you some great ideas.
Think about the effect colour has on the mood of a room. By making bold choices and decorating in bright reds and vibrant green you can create an exciting, stimulating atmosphere for playtime. Deep purples and rich creams suggest a calmer, more nurturing environment suitable for study and a great night’s sleep. By finding the right balance you’ll create the space which is right for your kids where they’ll love being.
Shape up the perfect kid’s bedroom furniture
By making the most of the interplay between shape and colour, you can give your child a space which is more than just a kid’s room, it’s somewhere that’s beautifully crafted and uniquely theirs. With modern bespoke children’s furniture you can customise the tiniest details to ensure the room reflects the best of the child’s personality. This is reflected everywhere in our design philosophy, from chunky, curved bedframes down to choices of sturdy rounded handles for our range of children’s wardrobes.
Imagine the fun they could have in a bright, lively room furnished with innovative children’s furniture like the Goccia bunk bed from Battistella. If you’re going for something a little more understated, there’s also the Fiore bunk bed, another Battistella creation, with a more straightforward construction which still makes great use of whimsical shapes and fun cut-outs to add a sense of imagination to a practical, durable design.
Need contemporary bedroom furniture for teens?
As time marches on, you’ll begin to see why taking that little bit of extra time to choose the right colours for your kid’s room was such a wise idea. Boys quickly grow out of baby blue, even quicker than girls grow out of flamingo pink. A more nuanced, style-conscious palette means you can replace individual pieces of furniture to keep pace with your child’s development without the hassle of a full redecoration.
For example, as the rounded, organic shapes which characterise furniture for young children give way to the defined, angular designs typical of the furniture teens love, a bedroom decorated in bright, fresh cream could easily play host to this gorgeous modern teenager bedroom set. Space will no doubt also be an issue so we’re sure to keep up with beds like this modern single bed with lifting base. It’s chic, it’s versatile and it provides discreet storage for all the essentials of teenage life.
A timeless, classic colour scheme for the kids room also makes accessorising much easier. This fun bubble design mirror from Calligaris would look right at home among a collection of contemporary bedroom furniture for teenagers. What about a quality rug to match the theme of the room and direct attention to the rest of the stylish décor? Spending an extra hour or so now on deciding on the right colouring can save you time and effort later on when it comes to adapting the space.
