Finding creative ways to make a child’s bedroom special is no easy task. A great starting point is researching the best kids beds, picking the perfect one for your child, and designing the rest of the room around that centerpiece.
Since children’s hobbies and interests tend to change frequently, designing a room that they won’t outgrow in a few months’ time takes careful thought and consideration. These girls bedroom ideas and boys bedroom ideas will help point you in the right direction.
Best Kids Beds
But before you can pick the bed, you have to pick the mattress.
The best kids beds are typically twin beds. Although children grow fast, in most cases a twin bed will be more than enough space and will last many years. If your child is growing especially quickly, consider a Twin XL mattress, which is five inches longer than a regular twin, at 80 inches long!
For example, the 2.0 Canterbury Euro Top Mattress is perfect for a child’s twin or twin XL bed. With an affordable price tag, luxury comfort pad, and innerspring coil system for maximum support, your child will be so cozy, they’ll be begging for bedtime.
If you’re not sure what size bed is right for your child, compare all of the different bed sizes to determine the best fit.
How To Make Your Child Excited For Sleep
If your kid struggles to fall asleep or to get to bed at a reasonable hour, make their bedroom a fun place to spend time. A classic way to do this is with a bunk bed — especially if you have multiple kids sharing a bedroom. Stacking two beds on top of each other saves space and feels like a jungle gym. Even if one bed is just used for friends sleeping over, it’s an easy way to make a bed feel more exciting.
Another potential route to help your child prepare for bed is by turning their bed into an interesting space or an aesthetically pleasing focal point of the room. An easy way to do this is with a unique headboard. By making it one of their favorite spaces visually, they may feel eager to crawl into bed each night.
You can also make the pillows, sheets, and blankets not only extremely plush and comfortable, but cute and in-theme with something your child loves — whether that be polka dots, superheroes, or princesses.
Mattress Warehouse provides girls bedroom ideas and boys bedroom ideas, but all these options are perfect for every child!
Girls Bedroom Ideas
Once you’ve picked out your bed, it’s time to start planning the bedroom’s decor. You want to ensure it reflects your child’s personality and interests.
Here are some ideas to spice up your daughter’s bedroom:
- Bedroom plants
- Colorful desk/work area
- Statement rug
If there is something she obviously loves that you don’t think is “just a phase,” but rather a part of who she is, consider making her entire room themed. For example, if she loves the beach you could incorporate mason jars full of seashells, a tapestry of the beach, or even paint her walls to resemble the ocean.
Boys Bedroom Ideas
It’s a common misconception that boys bedrooms are harder to get creative with.
As with all children, their bedroom should be a reflection of their personality. If they are adventurous and outgoing, you may want to incorporate bright colors and eye-catching pieces. If they are more shy and introspective, you may want to consider subtler tones and colors.
Here are some ideas to help decorate your boy’s bedroom:
- Animal pillows
- Chalkboard wallpaper
- Desk or workstation
- Rustic wood tones
- Starry sky ceiling
- Toy corner
As with girls, it can be fun to create a bedroom based around a specific theme. For example, is your son obsessed with soccer? Turn his bedroom into a soccer field! Does he love dinosaurs? Or pirates? Transform his bedroom into a prehistoric jungle, or a pirate ship sailing the sea.
