Whether or not you consider yourself to be a style guru, design and decor are important parts of home life. It can take months of planning, deciding, and DIYing to make your house feel like home. At Modernize, we know that styling is just as important in kids’ rooms as it is in the rest of the house. Taking the time to design your kids’ bedrooms can feel like more work than fun when your design wants and needs are often outweighed by Disney characters and princess castles. Here are some fantastic kid bedroom design ideas that you will love, too.
When done tastefully, loft beds can be a fantastic option for your kid’s bedroom. In addition to being cooler than the average bed to your little ones, you have the extra benefit of storage within the bed frame. Choose from bespoke options with storage drawers and desks underneath, or get extra creative with a reading nook or deep, dark cave for added imaginative play.
Black and white bedrooms are all the rage in modern, hipster design collaborations. For the ultimate monochromatic room, choose high contrast black furniture with white walls and bedding. The best part about this kind of kid’s room design is it’s almost impossible to get wrong.
A bohemian bedroom design is perfect for both kids and adults because it looks just like the bedroom you wish you had as a pre-teen without seeming too grown up. Embrace your love for flowy, gauzy fabrics and eclectic accessories to create a kid’s room that doesn’t scrimp on individuality.

Grown-up kid rooms
The best part about designing your home is that you can do pretty much whatever you like. If you want continuity with your personal design style, style your kid’s room in exactly the same way as the rest of your house. Just a word of warning: this option usually only works for a few years. Once your kids become aware of the world around them, it will be hard to stay away from CBeebies characters and the wonderful world of Disney, so style away while you still can!
Kids bedroom decor is especially exciting because you can generally get away with bolder design choices than in the rest of the house. Choose one or two items in your little ones’ room to use as focal points. A brightly painted wall or a few large modern art prints will do the job nicely and give your room a pop of color and more than a little bit of individuality.
