How To Decorate Your Kids Bedroom

When it comes to your child’s bedroom – there are no limits to what you can do with a little planning and creativity. It’s really important to craft a space that speaks to your child’s personality and passions. When they’re a little bit older, they can even add some of their own input into what things they’d like to see in their bedrooms! Here are some ideas to inspire you for your kid’s bedroom decor:

A Space To Be Creative

A chalk board wall is perfect for kids to create and decorate. They’re going to be drawing all over the walls anyway, so you might as well embrace it.

I can’t wait for my daughter to be old enough to have her own chalk wall.

Themed Bedroom

In this boy’s bedroom, a cute wall decal brings to life his love for Star Wars! Some kids are very specific about how they want to decorate their rooms. By keeping the furniture and walls neutral, you can give them a chance to pick out some simple pieces that can easily be switched out later.

A fun spot to chill, play, and dream! Vibrant colors are a great accessory for this log home kid’s room decor.

Inspired to remodel your own bedroom? I’ve collected some pretty awesome bedroom ideas for the grownups!

Trip To The Zoo

I love this subtle animal theme. Perfect for a growing kid. The walls are the perfect versatile color and can work with any décor pieces. As they kids grow up, they can bring in their own details.

White Walls

This girl’s room is so magical. White walls can feel a little blah, so bring in a nice headboard accessorize the room!

Pretty In Pink

For the kid who loves pink, play with different shades of pink but also try to bring in a neutral color, like this grey section on the wall.

Loft Love

This décor perfectly complements the architecture of the room. The room feels like a cottage experience. Good for a boy or girl’s room.

Baby’s First Chandelier

This is an easy update if you are looking to create a nursery. Painted walls, a nice chandelier and a little shag rug is all you need.

Personalize The Room

Love this pet themed bedroom. Nice framed photos! Keeping most of the décor pieces on the wall allows more room for kids to play.

Cool Blue

I wanted to paint Cali’s room blue (even though traditionally it has been a popular color for boy’s rooms). But this shade of blue is so soothing.

Painting is a job that’s purely cosmetic, meaning, if there are any screwups along the way, you haven’t messed up the structure of your home. Read some painting tips before you get started.

Keep Organized

A large desk with storage compartments will eliminate the clutter. When your child grows, they will want a space they can sit down and be creative. Give him a helping hand by making sure there’s lots of shelving and storage options in the room. 

Bunk Beds

Bunk beds are an excellent space saving idea. There are all sorts of styles out there for bunk beds. It’s also perfect for sleepovers and siblings.

Wall Decals

Simple wall decals are paired well with an eye catching wall color. Add some cheer to the room with a nice bright coat of paint. It’s easy to do as a DIY project as well. Add a grown up touch with a piece of furniture like the one in the corner. It will last them beyond their childhood years.

A Place For You and Me

We were lucky to have a large space to work with on this house featured in Holmes and Holmes. There’s lots of room to crawl, sit and play. 

The bunk beds save even more space and the comfy seats are perfect for tired parents!

Spring Is Around The Corner

This wall color reminds me of spring. It’s such a beautiful, bright color and they’ll definitely not outgrow this for a long time.

Floral Wallpaper

This color scheme of blush pink and beige is stunning. Add a dressy accent for the sophisticated kid. Timeless furniture doesn’t need to be switched out. A hanging chair adds a relaxing vibe.


Bring color into the accessories means you can keep the walls and furniture neutral. And if your kid gets bored of the color, it’s easy to give the room a quick refresh.
