Creating a space for your little one to live, play and grow can (and should!) be an exciting experience. That said, it can also be a challenging one!
Here are our top tips on creating an imaginative and functional kids’ sleeping space…
1. Keep Furniture Simple
Especially when it comes to big-ticket items like furniture. Less is more here, by keeping the base simple you’ll create more space to play and grow and provide a neutral canvas that can easily be updated as your child gets older.
2. Function First
Will the bedroom just be a space for snoozing? Or do you want to incorporate a study nook or play area? By considering how the space will be used, you can map out zones and choose furniture to suit.
Wherever possible, it’s worth looking for multifunctional pieces of furniture that can adapt as your child grows.
3. Buy Quality
Let’s face it, kids can be… rough. If you want your purchases to last, make sure you invest in quality items.
Our Kids' First pillow is specially designed to support your little one’s dreams (and neck). Knowing your child is sleeping like a little cherub means you’ll have one less thing to worry about at bedtime.
Consider hypoallergenic bedding to support your littlies’ sensitive respiratory systems while they grow. Our down alternative quilts are warm, gentle and soft and will keep your precious offspring in the lap of luxury.
4. Storage, Storage, Storage!
5. Play with Colour
6. Think About a Theme
From dinosaurs to woodland creatures and CoComelon to Pokémon, kids’ stuff is CUTE. You’re only a kid once, and let’s be honest, we know plenty of adults that would deck out their bed in dino-linen if they had the chance.
Let kids be kids and let their space reflect it. After all, they’ll have all the time in the world for a formal bedroom when they’re grown — if they want a CoComelon quilt, we say give it to them! Our advice? Keep the walls and furniture neutral, and have fun with bedding and accessories, such as cushions and floor rugs.
