Being the imaginative and playful creatures they are, kids always enjoy a bedroom that fits their personalities. So if there was ever an opportunity for you to get completely crazy with a room design, your kids room would be it.
Most parents might dream up a painted princess wall mural and a fancy chandelier and call it a day. But you, being the creative genius you are, you can do a whole lot better than that.
Here are three unique ideas for your kids’ bedroom.
Cover The Wall In Something That Isn’t Drywall
You can add more interest to the walls in your kids rooms by putting wood flooring panels on the wall. Choose a color or finish that fits the theme of the room, create a design, and let your imagination run wild. This idea is great for many room concepts including rustic, coastal, nature-themed, and even fairy tales involving enchanted forests.
Hardwood floors can easily become a basketball court for the sports lover in your house. At least you’ll know that when your teenager doesn’t come out of their room, it may be because they’re doing something active rather than just playing video games all day.
After applying the hardwood, paint or tape your court lines and finish off the room with a basketball hoop and a locker. You may want to splurge on soundproofing for this one.
You can get creative with hardwood flooring in other ways, too, creating patterns and designs that will be appealing even after your child grows up. Chevron and herringbone patterns are a hot trend at the moment and are fun for a kid’s room.
If hardwood is too permanent for you, you can also go crazy with carpet tile to create a patchwork look with lots of color. Carpet tiles are easy to install and to replace, so when your child grows older and inevitably changes his or her mind about what the room should look like, you can easily go to a more traditional look.
Create A Wall Of Custom Storage Options
Use customized cabinets to craft a study and storage space for your child’s books and toys. Cubbies, cabinets, countertops and drawers can be customized to fit the size of any space. With the variety of selections available, you’ll be able to create the perfect desk with storage and display shelves.
