Sometimes we struggle for space when it comes to our children’s bedrooms. This can pose a real problem when it comes to redecorating. Luckily there are ways we can utilise a small space and bring their bedrooms to life, with the Julian Bowen Pegasus High Sleeper Bed for example. It is important for our little ones to have a bright and uncluttered room to do their homework and play when the weather isn’t so great outdoors.
With a little bit of thought and inspiration from this post, you should be able to turn the ‘box room’ that doesn’t fit anything into a wonderful, fun and organised space for your child to play and kick back and relax after a long day at school, once the homework is complete of course.
Multi-use bedroom furniture
It is important to open up the small space as much as you can to avoid the room feeling cluttered and slightly overbearing. A smaller wardrobe with a split chest of drawer’s section is perfect for children’s clothes as they don’t tend to take up as much space. Double up with the use for a cosy armchair, it can be a great addition to a desk for doing their homework but also great for story time before bed.
The most important piece of furniture in any bedroom is, of course, the bed. And choosing the right bed for a small bedroom is crucial when it comes to utilising space. The Julian Bowen Pegasus High Sleeper Bed is the ultimate multi-use piece of bedroom furniture for children of all ages. The Pegasus High sleeper is both practical and timeless in design. A bed such as this with pull-out wardrobe feature and integrated storage drawers would be perfect for this type of room. Complete with working desk and even more storage options a high sleeper is ideal for your children’s bedroom.
When it comes to colour scheme perhaps a more neutral option is better suited to a small space. A lot of bold colours can sometimes make a smaller room appear more cluttered. A slightly subtler tone of paint can make the bedroom appear much bigger than it actually is. Keep it clean, keep it streamlined and add a few exciting touches here and there to still give a little character. Some random bursts of colour such as cushions and soft fleecy blankets will finish the compact look keeping it fun for your little one.
Limit wallpaper and accessories
It is worth mentioning not to go overboard with the accessories as there are subtle hints of colour and then there’s brightly piles of clutter everywhere. Instead of scattering cushions, rug and blankets, why not opt for a statement wall and add a coloured and patterned printed wallpaper. Just to clarify, only buy paper for one wall, as you don’t want to close the space up again. Alternatively, bold bed linen could be an option. Afterall it will be easier to change when they get bored than scraping a whole wall of paper.
