Grow, play, sleep, repeat – a child’s bedroom is their personal sanctuary, and a living space where they spend sizeable chunks of their time. When it comes to designing junior’s bedroom, there are plenty of considerations especially since it’s a room that needs to serve many purposes. For example, the room should ideally have an age-friendly design that he won’t outgrow (at least not till his teens), enough storage space for all his toys, books and other knick knacks, and ideally a conducive area for studying and creative projects. Of course, the end design should also appeal to its mini occupant!
Ahead, we share 9 project inspirations and tips to transform your child’s room!

Raising the bed off the ground sets it apart from the rest of the space, and provides a ton of storage at the same time. Plus, the baby blue colour scheme and light woodgrain tones help to create a calm environment where your child can relax and unwind.
