When designing kids' rooms, it is always a good idea to stay away from being too themey, and create a space that will last, while still showcasing their personalities.
It is still important to infuse a bit of fun and even whimsy, while creating a sense of timelessness. They may grow fast, but they don't have to outgrow their personal spaces too quickly.
Here are a few tips for creating a kid's room that will outlast their different stages of growth
1- Combine a great mix of high and low
Everything in a kid's room doesn't need to come from Ikea. You do want the key pieces to last. By incorporating quality pieces that will grow with your child, like the dresser, desk, bed, and combine them with lower-end items like the bedding and accessories, you will have a good mix that will be a wise investment
2- Incorporate their hobbies
Or at least include a place where they can play and just be kids. Arranging furnishings so that some floor space remains is always a good idea
3- Think functionality
Incorporate lots of space for sleeping and hanging out. Storage is a must in a kid's space. Use performance fabrics and wipeable pieces as much as possible
4- Incorporate a study area
Well, it is a great idea to make it easy for them to get their studying on. Even in a tiny room, a desk area can be incorporated. Here we included this desk instead of a second nightstand
5- Think timeless
Add some vintage or classic pieces to add a sense of timelessness
6- Go Bold
In kids' spaces, it is ok to go super bold and incorporate color and pattern in ways that excite.
7- Think whimsical
Even in a more mature space for a late teen, add a bit of whimsy to keep the space from getting too serious
8- Individualize shared spaces
It is so important to give them a sense of individuality in shared spaces
