Kids bedroom design

Children’s bedroom design: The colours of childhood

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.

Here at Belvisi we love getting to know the families we work with to create their perfect homes. We’re a family business ourselves so we know the value you place on feeling content in every room. If this blog has inspired you to think outside the box when it comes to the colours you’re considering for the kid’s bedroom, talk to us about it.

Modern Italian wardrobe

Modern Italian wardrobes: Secure and sumptuous storage

The right wardrobe with the perfect design has the potential to do so much for a room. Here at Belvisi we’re always giving advice to customers to help them select the perfect wardrobe, an issue which is often far more of a stumbling block than people first think. The first step should always be to step back and consider where the wardrobe will fit in with the rest of the design in any given room.

Define your space

From an aesthetic perspective, what role will it perform? A plainer wardrobe with discrete handles and flush doors like this modern hinged wardrobe directs attention to other items of furniture, perfect for smaller rooms with more defined furniture that you may wish to take centre stage. On the other hand, larger rooms with more space to fill might cry out for something like this distinctive TV wardrobe to share the plentiful limelight and contribute more fully to the look and feel you’re trying to create.

Once the homework has been done and you know what you’re aiming for, it’s time to fit that vision into the reality of the situation. What sort of space are you working with? Narrower wall space with a lot of depth lends itself well to a set of durable hinged doors, whereas if you’re installing a wardrobe into a thinner room, sliding or coplanar doors are going to serve you well.

Picking the right contemporary wardrobe

Many of the wardrobes in our new range from modern Italian furniture gurus, Mobilform, are available in any of these three variations, so a choice made on practical grounds doesn’t necessarily mean compromising on how you want your dream room to turn out.

Did you notice that the above examples haven’t been confined to the bedroom? Modern wardrobe design has come so far from the static, dust-topped days of yore that wardrobes now appear as storage solutions all over. Of course they’re still a cornerstone of contemporary bedroom furniture, but sliding fitted wardrobes are also a popular choice in the hallway. Used like this, they provide an unobtrusive place for coats, bags and other clutter, invaluable here where space is at its tightest.

This principle has even burst out of the home and found its way into the workplace. Offices and similar commercial spaces are nowadays creating a cleaner, more expansive look by making use of cutting-edge wardrobe designs like the Grove hinged model or this contemporary covered design. Replacing jumbled, irregular-looking coat stands and hooks with a neat rail concealed in an understated wardrobe adds that extra air of professionalism to any office space.

Customisation is key

With so many possible uses, you’ll be pleased to know that modern wardrobe design leaves room for so much creative control when it comes to customising individual pieces. Examples like this modern sliding design come with a shelf and two hanging rails as standard, but options like internal LED lights and shoe storage allow you to personalise your wardrobe down to the finest detail.

In the modern home, it’s more important than ever to get exactly what you want. One size doesn’t fit all, so a bespoke approach to the perfect furniture is essential. So much of our furniture is selected for its modular flexibility for just this reason. Whether you’re fond of longer garments and need a rail a bit higher from the floor, or you’re a strapping, broad-shouldered type who needs their wardrobe that little bit wider. Belvisi has your needs covered.

We extend this flexibility to all the furniture we offer. Some customers come to us looking for individual bespoke pieces, while others are interested in taking advantage of our full interior design service. Either way, we’re proud to offer a level of service which takes the time to understand each individual customer and work with them to realise their visions for a gorgeous new home.

Kids’ furniture: the Belvisi guide

When you’re building the family home of your dreams, some rooms are visualised more easily than others. Knowing the look and feel you want to create for your living space, your kitchen and your own bedroom is one thing and no doubt it’s something you’ve had a lot of fun thinking over. But what about the kids? These can be the trickiest rooms to plan effectively.

Simply asking them what they’d like to have in their rooms is sure to provoke some interesting feedback. A child’s imagination is a fantastic thing and it’s well worth listening to in order to get an idea of what makes for a stimulating space that they’ll love. However, when it comes to translating this explosion of suggestions into reality it can often prove a bewildering experience.

Practical furniture for kids

The most basic consideration when choosing the best bedroom furniture for your children always has to be practicality. What’s perfect for a two-year old will quickly get outgrown and by the time they hit four they may well be clamouring for an update.

Nobody knows your little one better than you do, so think about how you want them to develop. Plan ahead to choose colours and furniture styles which they’ll enjoy now and grow to love as the years (quickly) pass.

Practicality is also about durability. There is no test of durability on Earth like that which comes from frequent interaction with young, inquisitive hands and feet. Do your homework on top children’s furniture brands like Battistella, a manufacturer we work closely with due to their reputation for outstanding craftsmanship. When all is said and done, durability equals safety and for a room where your child will be spending a lot of time unsupervised, you need to know their furniture is up to the challenge.

Make the most of kids’ bedroom space

One thing that you’ll need to keep in mind at all times is storage. Toys are great, they’re the building blocks of your child’s imagination, but where are they all going to go at bedtime? Toy boxes are all well and good, but too many will quickly take up the floor space kids use to play.

Our bespoke interior design service can bring an expert eye to your child’s bedroom and spot innovative solutions for making the most of available floor space. Why not take a look at a bunk bed with the bottom bunk swapped out for drawers or a desk? You might also consider something along the lines of our Victor bed with pull-out drawers, desk and even a guest bed.

Of course, there’s always the traditional approach to storage in the form of wardrobes for kids that are packed with character and personality. Whether you’re looking for a free-standing piece or something built into your wall, all furniture from Belvisi is built to order so the options for customisation are limitless.

Make it fun!

With all the boring grown-up stuff out of the way, you can focus on what’s really important: creating a fun space in which your little ones will love spending time! One bit of feedback we get from parents time and time again is that a bedroom from Belvisi is one that kids want to be in. We create a unique and inspiring space which will reflect the personality of your child and give them room to explore, create and develop.

Consider characterful pieces like the Battistella bunker bed and the Torre bed on big, chunky castor wheels. When dealing with trusted manufacturers, there’s no reason why kids’ bedroom furniture can’t be durable, safe and a joy to look at all at once.

Even relatively ordinary furniture like a wardrobe can help reflect unique personality. Something like the Woody wardrobe, with its sleek design and chunky, odd-sized handles can become an enduring favourite in the right surroundings.

As your children get older, their sense of fun matures and refines. When it comes to choosing modern bedroom furniture for teenagers, you’ll not only have some more realistic feedback, but you can also focus on pieces which are as stylish and chic as they are well-made. Here at Belvisi we’re proud to provide the most cutting-edge contemporary teens’ furniture direct to our customers in the UK to help them find the right atmosphere in which to leap towards adulthood.

There are no rules when it comes to creating the perfect bedroom environment for your children.
