In the past, it wasn’t uncommon to see a kid’s bedroom decorated with furniture, bedsheets, and more from popular TV shows and books for children – from superheroes to Disney to Winnie the Pooh. That trend has faded over the years as many parents have realized that these rooms become quickly dated. Turns out teenagers aren’t that crazy about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Here are some new trends for kids’ rooms we’ve seen emerge over time.
More sophisticated styles. Gone are the days of rooms based on books or television shows for kids. Many parents are opting for timeless styles that will easily transition from kid-friendly to teen-friendly. Some parents are bringing vintage back by using iron frame beds, or floral patterns. Others are leaning toward a modern look by incorporating simple, minimalist design. The bed is also becoming the focal point of the bedroom to promote rest instead of many toys and games being the focus.
Neutral colors. Grey isn’t as boring as it sounds. Many people are choosing grey since it’s a soft, neutral color that can easily combine with many other colors. It’s also timeless, and easy for transition as a child matures. Wallpaper is also back in full force. There are many modern and crisp designs that are popular to use as a statement wall. Others choose to go all white. Then they add pops of color with furniture and accessories.
Unique furniture. Some homes or apartments are cramped for space. One way to resolve this in a kid’s bedroom is by building a loft bed. This gives space for more activities and storage, and adds fun! You can also create more space by using built-in furniture. A bed with built-in drawers maximizes space that is often unused. Lastly, don’t be afraid to try something out of the ordinary! We custom-built an indoor treehouse for one of our clients: the perfect place for a kid’s imagination to grow.
