Developing Great Kids Room Ideas

Aug 03
Your child starts their imagination at an early age. In fact, it’s incredible the amount of exploration they have in them so young.  Their rooms are a place where they can go to get away from reality for a bit or it’s a place they go to strengthen their imagination.  In either case (and in cases in between), they spend considerable amounts of time in the room; therefore, any kids room ideas must be stunning and inspirational at the same time.

Let’s face it, boys and girls have different types of imaginations.  For little girls, they can enjoy princess themes while boys can have their Army men and jungle settings.  Whatever the case is there are plenty of enjoyable ideas for kids.  Here, we will explore a few that may be just up your child’s alley.

Fireman-Themed Rooms

Every kid wants to be a fireman, don’t they?  It’s the ultimate job: save lives, put out fires, and drive big cars – it’s the dream of every child.  Some common furniture to match the likeness of the theme include a truck-inspired bed, red wallpaper (or paint) coupled with fire hydrant stickers, and various insignias which include your local firemen’s company and motto on it pasted to the wall or on furniture items.

Down-Home Southern Comfort

This room can fit a boy’s or girl’s imagination.  There are plenty of things to really enjoy about a southern-style home from the ambiance all the way to the feel.  Some ideas to implement into the room are oak chests for clothes or shoes, followed by a comforter or quilt that has the traditional southern patterns on it.  Southern comfort warms people to the core because of the hospitality and architecture.  These ideas can come to life in a bedroom.

Disney Room

A popular kids room idea, a Disney room can transform any room into Disneyland.  It fits both boys and girls and they have fan bases in just about every country, every age, every group.  From Mickey and Minnie all the way to Donald and Pluto, there are a lot of options with this theme.  For girls, they can have princess beds and pink or red sequins, or they can give their room a castle look. Boys can have Mickey or Donald pasted to the walls of their room, or they can play the villain and have a hideout or lair as their room layout.

There are many kids room ideas and it should never make a difference how old they are.  They will imagine things all day long.  A child will spend a good portion of time in their room – it might as well be the way they want it.
