For a child, a bedroom is more than just a place to sleep


Decorating a kids' room doesn't mean you have to scrimp on style. In fact, it opens up a whole new world of exciting design possibilities, even for small spaces. It's the perfect excuse to be as bold, brave or magical as you want. Whether it's a girls' room, a boys' bedroom or nursery, we've found some amazing children's bedroom ideas to steal, from furniture to accessories like  kids' wallpaper. 



For a child, a bedroom is more than just a place to sleep. It is a place to do schoolwork, listen to music, play games, sprawl on the floor, rough-house, read, build models, daydream, visit with friends and keep innumerable possessions. You’ll need to plan carefully to create a room that serves all those functions, to be comfortable and inviting.

Cots and security


A cot will probably be your baby's bed until he is two years or three years old. It should be strong and sturdy without cracked or broken slats, with no jagged points or edges. 

If you are buying a new cot, it should conform to BS EN 716-2:2008, as all new cots on sale in the UK have to meet this standard. This standard ensures that the cot is deep enough to be safe for your baby, that the bars are the correct distance apart, and that the cot does not have cut-outs or steps. 

If your cot is second-hand or borrowed, make sure the distance between each bar is no less than 2.5cm (1in) and no more than 6.5cm (2.6in). You should not be able to fit a soft-drink can between the slats. This is to prevent your baby's head from slipping between the bars.


You can use your cot from the day your baby is born, if you like. However, many parents choose a Moses basket, crib, or carrycot for the first few months, or have their babies in the same bed as them. This is often because a newborn baby can look and feel a little lost in a big cot.

Teenagers and their study area




Every teenager should have a room, or part of the room where can study and prepare projects for school. If you have bigger house you can make one room specially for this purpose. But if you live in a small apartment and your space is limited you need to find some free corner and you should rearrange it in place for studying. That way your kid’s school stuff will be every time arranged and you will enable them easier learning.



Remenber that Teenage years can be dominated by school exams, so a tidy and organised study area in a teen's bedroom is a must. Invest in a good quality desk and chair and fit some shelves above the desk area so your teen has plenty of space to store coursework and books.
