Sometimes having a small bedroom can be such a pain. Whether you’ve been faced with using a small bedroom for children or yourself, the simple thing is that having a small bedroom means you need to get more creative with your options. Today I’m going to share some tips for your child’s small bedroom to include the best beds for small bedrooms. I have previously found teenagers are better with smaller bedrooms than younger children. When we moved into our current home we actually gave the youngest the biggest children’s bedroom. When children are young they have bulky toys which disappear as they get older.
Design Tips for Small Bedrooms
Utilise Bed for Storage
When it comes to having a small bedroom for your child, it’s important to utilise the space appropriately. Look into getting a child’s bed for a small bedroom that has storage space built into it like the Julian Bowen Mid sleeper from Childrens Bed Shop. Some children’s beds have a pull out drawer for clothing or toy storage, while others may have a bookcase built in to store your child’s books easily in a small bedroom. Being able to store something in a drawer underneath your child’s bed or using the headboard as a storage space does wonders to allow more open space in a small bedroom.
Fold up or Fold Down
There are so many children’s beds for small bedrooms that allow you to fold up or fold down specific parts of the bed. While you could go with a bunk bed for your child’s small bedroom, it’s important that you get clever with the bedding option so that you’re utilizing all space. A bunk bed does well for a child who has to share a room, but consider using a bed that has a fold up option when not in use or pulls out when they have a sleepover. This will also help to free up space in a small bedroom.
Colour is Everything
Last, but not least, consider what colour you opt for when painting your child’s small bedroom. Darker colours tend to make any area look smaller whereas a lighter shade of color will ensure your child’s small bedroom looks larger. If you really like dark colors, consider using a lighter version of the color for most of the paint and use the dark color as a border or pattern on the lighter colored wall. Colour is everything when you’re trying to make the most of a small bedroom.
Not only do you have to think about the colour scheme and storage solutions for everything a child owns when they have a small bedroom, but it’s also vitally important that you select one of the best beds for small bedrooms so that your child sleeps well and is able to utilize their bed for storage space whenever possible.
A really cool feature in a bedroom is having really functional storage. Our daughter loves lego and I still haven’t yet mastered the best way to store it all? Does anyone have any great tips that would mean that the lego is on display but without taking over the bedroom!
