Child's bedroom with wooden bed and built-in storage

Update the kid's bedroom with these design ideas

Give your child a cool and practical bedroom that they'll love spending time in for years to come.

From sweet pastel nurseries to seaside-themed boys' rooms and girly teen sanctuaries, you'll find inspiring bedroom designs for all ages, plus cunning storage solutions to help keep their room tidy.

Have fun choosing bright colours, fun furniture, cute décor, and if you've decided on a themed room, opt for a scheme they won't outgrow too quickly and accessorize with a themed duvet cover or fun rug that can be easily updated if they do.

Begin with a neutral canvas or paint the walls using their favourite colour from light pastels through to bold hues. A feature wall works well in a child's bedroom and you can achieve the look you want easily, with motif wallpaper, wall stickers or funky artwork.

Hardwearing flooring that's easy to clean is essential in a younger child's room. Try painting the floorboards in alternating colours and layer on a statement rug for high impact.

And what children's bedroom is complete without a snuggly bed? From cots and bunks to sleepers with built-in storage, the perfect bed will enhance your child's quality of sleep each night, as well as the overall look of their room.

Opt for a fitted bed that has extra storage in a compact room, to give the illusion of a bigger space. Bunks and raised beds are ideal for sharers or cramming in an under-bed study zone. Throw on a snazzy duvet, bright pillows or hang a canopy above to add the finishing touch to a themed room.

Work as much storage into your design as you can to clear away toys, clothes, books and free up as much extra space as possible for play, study and games.

Fitted furniture makes the most of all the available space in a children's room and creates plenty of useful storage options. Using ornamental letters to spell out children's names adds a personal touch.
