Bedroom Ideas Kids – Spaces for Sleep, Study, & Play
Designing children’s bedrooms can take a kid-size imagination for the right ideas. Your kids’ bedroom design needs to be both fun AND functional, incorporating their main activities of play, study, and of course, sleep. As a result, you should begin this interior design project by dividing up space for each of these activities.

Bedroom Ideas Kids – Sleep
The first choice for a kids’ bedroom is…their bed! Once your children have outgrown the crib, it is time to invest in a bed of their own. Experts recommend replacing our mattresses about every 10 years.
However, children’s natural playfulness might cause more wear and tear than usual. Therefore, start with a good-quality mattress that can withstand “jumping on the bed” from time to time. However, always put support on top of the list when shopping for a new mattress.
It is vital that you make sure your kid test the mattress you plan to purchase at store for them. Better yet, choose various models within your budget and have him/her select their favourites.
As for bed frames, you have several options to fit your space and wallet, including platform, poster, bookcase, and bunk beds, among many others.
Another option growing in popularity are loft beds like the Lea Kids Loft Beds
Lea Freetime Desk Loft Bed and
the Getaway Loft Bed with Entertainment Centre and Loft Bed Tent that allow for a play or study area underneath, room for a desk, storage, or other kids furniture.
You can even fit in another bed if you have more than one youngster with the Tradewins Birch Youth Twin over Twin Loft Bed or the
University Loft Urban Extra Long Wild Cherry Senior Crew Loft Wood Bed .
Loft beds will work ideally if your children’s room has 8” or more ceilings.

You can choose from something traditional and simple like the Kidcraft Avalon White Kids Desk with Hutch and Chair to
the sassy and shiny Powell Monster Bedroom Counter Height Computer Home Student Desk . While your ultimate choice will be dictated by style, keep these things in mind:
- Make sure they have enough surface space on their desk whether it is for using a computer or writing in a more traditional notebook.
- Make sure the desk has enough storage space! Apart from encouraging your kids not to leave out too much clutter, more storage space allows for more ways to organize as they get older.
If you are looking for more storage space, hutches that fit over the desk or bookcases are useful choices.

or Levels of Discovery Kids Always a Princess Bookcase .
