The kids rooms, whilst lovely at the moment, also stress me out! I feel I am forever trying to find the balance between practical and looking good/a bit trendy, and also being playful but not too cluttered too!
If you’re looking to give your kid’s bedroom a makeover this season, then it might be useful to be aware of the trends that are big right now, as well as the ones that are timeless. I always love glam, colour and patterns in my interiors, but you may be in need of a little inspiration if like me you have a million ideas but cannot ever settle on just one! As a side note, I do always find that more plain decor and bringing out themes in soft furnishings and accessories for kids, are a way to better switch and change between trends and our kids ever changing interests!
The great news is that there’s plenty of inspiration to be found online (especially Pinterest) and in this post I wanted to look at some of the trendiest kids’ bedroom design ideas right now that you might want to consider this season to update their rooms.
Add a velvet touch
OK, so this trend isn’t very practical if you have very young and sticky children, but for an older kids’ bedroom, velvet is definitely something to consider.Just this week I have been eyeing up some lovely velvet curtains in H&M It’s one of the key interior trends this year, adding a more glamorous and elegant touch to your kids’ room.
You could keep it simple and opt for velvet cushions, throws or curtains. But, if you have the time and resources, then live on the edge a bit and go all out and add velvet to the walls!
Another way to bring this classy trend into the room, iThis is an especially great idea for older kids as they’ll have a more grown up space to relax in with their pals!
Consider wall panelling?
If you’re looking for an idea that’s both practical as well as super-trendy, consider . This is extremely durable, making it an ideal wall cover for any age and it’s also great for sticking posters onto it. The blu-tac won’t leave unsightly marks behind, so your kids could go nuts decorating with minion, unicorn or their fave star, without the worry of damaging the walls.
Opt for 1950’s glamour
This is by far one of my favourite interior styles (though I do not pull it off very well). It is also one of the more unusual trendy kids room designs featuring heavily this year. 1950’s glamour is great for those who have an older house with a more traditional style décor. Think 1950’s Hollywood style glamour and silhouettes with curved shapes. So, if you wanted to incorporate it into the kids rooms, it could be through a nursery chair with a curved design, or old-fashioned wooden chairs and a table. It is a bit out there for some, but you’d be surprised how many kids actually enjoy this trend.
The nature theme
Another theme that’s remained popular for a few years now is nature and my friend and I were recently discussing this / a camping theme for her sons room. It’s thought that millennial parents may be sparking the trend as they look to escape from the highly technological environment they’ve grown up in.
With a nature theme, it’s basically all about and natural textiles too.There are so many lovely nature inspired wall papers or paint colours, meaning it’s one of the easiest themes to go with if you’re looking for something that won’t take too much effort. Start by investing in all-wooden furniture such as wooden cribs, drawers and beds and neutral earthy colours.
Trendy kids’ bedroom themes are pretty varied, so no matter what your own personal style and preferences are, there’s hopefully an idea above to suit you and your kids.
