Setting up a space for your child that enables them to be independent, puts them in their happy place, and allows them to just be - is a tall order. You need the right combination of elements to achieve a magical, functional room that your child will love both now and for years to come. Here’s a little help in how to go about setting up your child’s room to strike the right balance between useful and adorable.
How To Set Up Your Kid’s Room With Useful & Adorable Decor
Stuffed toys aren’t just for cuddles and role play, they also double up as room decor. Fill your child’s space with adorable stuffed animals to keep them company. Check out Stuffies on LBB Shop. Take the first letter (or all!) of your tiny tot’s name and let Stuffies make a cuddly soft toy of it.
A teepee tent is a must have in a kid’s room. It’s the perfect place for the tiny ones to retreat to their imaginary world. Can be used for role-play, outdoor play as well as a reading nook. We love this one from the CuddlyCoo.
What’s childhood without a swing! Since taking them out to the park is not an option all the time, why not install a comfy swing in their room! Hangit has a colourful swing chair that your little one can cozy up in with their favourite toy.
Rugs are essential in a kid’s room. Ditch the boring prints and get something fun that can also serve as a playmat. Like this animal zoo mat from The Tickle Toe. It will add to the decor of the room as well as amuse your little bub.
Use the wall space in your child’s room smartly. There is so much you can do with it than just putting up a cute wallpaper or decal. For instance you can turn the wall into a chalkboard to let your bub’s imagination run wild. Or install wall shelves that help with storage and also serve as a decor element. Check out these floating shelves from Yatha for storing their board books and more.
No decor is complete without wall art. All the more true if it’s a kid’s room we are talking about. Krita and Penna has these downright adorable and funny framed art prints that will liven up boring walls in a jiffy. Why only kids, even the grown-ups in your home are going to love their fun and quirky designs.
The trickiest part in setting up a child’s room is to ensure there’s enough storage while also leaving enough space for the child to play and move around freely. Which means the bulky toy racks or closets can be avoided if the room is not big enough. We suggest you stock up on these lightweight and cute baskets from My Gift Booth to keep things in order.
No kids room decor is complete without a fair bit of magic thrown in. What better way to achieve that then hanging up pretty string lights wherever you can. The bed headboard area of the teepee tent are perfect spots to get a dreamy setup going. We are low-key obsessed with these star string lights from Glimmer Lightings.
Everything in a kid’s room should exude a playful vibe. Even the bed sheets. Especially the bed sheets! These sheets are so adorable, I could even use them for the grown-ups room. After all, isn't there a child in all of us, waiting to jump up and down on the bed? Check out this colourful one from SWHF.
