6 Unique Bedrooms for Kids That Will Give You Fresh Ideas

Get ready to plan the ultimate sleepover party.

One of our favorite things about children’s bedrooms is getting to design around multiple beds in a single space. From bunk beds to bunk rooms, we’ve got a number of stylish ideas that will have you planning your next sleepover party. And of course, we can’t forget about those playrooms and common spaces. Delve into our classic cottage style ideas for storage, décor, bedding, and more.

1Sweet Sophistication

This child’s room is packed with style. A darling French-inspired twin bed sets the stage for the sweetest of dreams. And while alphabets are often used in a child’s room, this bedroom shows us that they don’t have to be bright primary colors or even bought as a set! These letters have been collected over time, creating an alphabet of various fonts, sizes, and textures. Most have been painted gold for a unified appearance. Meanwhile, a baby dress displayed from an old plate rack looks like wall art. The letter block was a newborn gift with the baby’s initial and birth details.

2Vintage Makeover

While vintage furniture is found throughout this charming cottage, the pieces in the children’s bedroom got a colorful facelift to feel fun and fresh. The twin beds were painted robin’s egg blue, as was the dressing table that originally came with the suite. The cabinet situated between the beds was painted white and repurposed as a nightstand. To keep with the vintage theme, the homeowners styled the nightstand with a vintage radio. Anchored with brightly colored floral rugs and charming floral accent pillows, this space is a perfect blend of vintage style refreshed for the ages.

3Country Bunkhouse

This country-style cottage in Texas blends a mix of rustic and modern touches to add unique style to the home. Most of the walls are cedar with corrugated tin on the ceilings, except in the bunk room, which is fully lined in tin with cedar detailing. The rustic appeal of the house is accentuated by each piece of furniture, with many pieces coming from the Original Round Top Antiques Fair. Black-and-white buffalo check is a classic country linen. The bedding in the bunk room pops when paired with cherry red accents. The room is furnished with reclaimed wood beds the homeowner commissioned.

4Cozy Cottage Nurseries

Soft shades of pink pair with minty blues for a decidedly feminine space that can grow with baby. An upholstered glider for rocking baby to sleep will transition into the perfect spot for snuggling over bedtime stories. A white ottoman pouf is a contemporary twist in this sophisticated suite. Whether the room embraces a theme or a simple color scheme, creating a cozy, restful space is key to the perfect cottage nursery.

5Decorating for your Tween

Transitioning from a child’s space to a teen dream can be a challenge. Tween rooms are all about personality—let your child help choose the color scheme and accessories as they begin to take new pride in and ownership of their spaces. Here, we have a vibrant green-and-pink bed that is fun and funky. A striped canopy and a white chandelier offer loads of personal style. Below is a sweet yet sophisticated space in shades of lavender with an antique bed floating on a soft-as-a-cloud rug while a collection of framed art prints highlights beautiful gowns.

6Bunk Room Bonanza

Whether it’s a stay at Grandma’s house with a room lined in twin beds or your own child’s stylish bunk retreat, having a room filled with bunk beds never ceases to bring a sense of excitement and late-night story sharing amongst friends and family. With mulitple beds come multiple style ideas! A cohesive color palette can be found in bedding, throws, or pillows and will help tie the beds together while still maintaining their own unique personality.
