Small Kids Room Design Ideas

Achieving that sweet spot of storage and style is possible in any child’s space with enough planning and inspiration. Whether your little one wants to reach for the stars or is content with tummy time for now, we’ve got small kids room design ideas that are both small space friendly and stylish.

Neutral Color Blocking

Going with brighter neutrals (like warmer gray and taupe shades) opens up your nursery space makes the room feel bigger. Rather than just painting a wall a solid color, use painter’s tape to make stripes or triangles like the above picture for something truly eye-catching.

Vertical Storage

Since your little one most likely isn’t big enough to have an elevated bed that requires a staircase (the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends no children under 6 should sleep in a loft bed or upper bunk), make sure you utilize the walls for extra storage. Use wall shelves, cubbies and other kids organizers to keep everything clean–and place other keepsakes higher than your toddler can climb so they remain safe.

Remove the Closet Doors

Transforming your child’s closet into a storage hub for clothes, books and toys is the perfect way to maximize the space (especially if room is limited). Keep out of season clothes tucked away in a bin or cubby and hang any jackets or dresses on hangers. The less there is to fold, the better!

Use Space Behind the Door

In small spaces, every square inch is a precious resource that cannot be wasted! Case in point: the back of your door and the wall space behind. They’re both handy places to stow away extra toys, towels, books and other commonly used items.

Put Your Child’s Bed in the Corner

This is especially important for babies transitioning into toddler beds–you want a place they’ll feel safe and secure. Push the bed against the wall so there’s fewer sides they can risk falling or hurting themselves. Although most toddler beds come with rails, some small children can get inspired to climb, so it’s important to be mindful.

Make a Statement with Color

Brighten up your little one’s room with a mix of vibrant and soft colors–not only do they complement and present as very eye-catching, but there are so many ways you can play with color: picture frames, wall art and bedding are a few that come to mind. Accenting with a bright color can make the room seem bigger and livelier. You can also color code bins so your child can start learning cleanup early and know where things go.

Feeling inspired yet? Creating a space that encourages kids to dream and imagine bigger is something they’ll always appreciate –now and in the years to come.

How to Create a Boho Boys Room With Amber Shirley

As you can tell by her Instagram username, “PreppyBohemianAtHome”, for Amber Shirley, boho is the only way to go – even in her son, Rylan’s bedroom. But she discovered that creating a “fashionable” boy’s room can be a tricky task when it’s video games and sports that take top priority for him. Thankfully her little man’s lack of interest in a stylish room couldn’t stop her from creating a space that’s infused with boho chic, yet still meets his demands for fun.
