A child’s bedroom is for more than just sleeping, it’s for den-making, entering new worlds through books, hiding from grandpa, and all kinds of mischievous activities.
It can be really fun to reflect your little ones’ interests through interior design so that they can have a space to grow and call their own.
Here we’ve gathered some tips that will help you create a comfortable and cosy space for your little ones that will not only help them feel nurtured but also spark their curious minds.
Ideal layout for your children’s room
Deciding on an efficient layout for your little ones’ room will not only help you make full use of the space but also help you organise it effortlessly, here are a few things to consider;
- Storage space: With children, there can never be enough storage. Be sure to have closet options; built-in or cubbies. These will help to keep the room tidy and organised, although we can’t promise all the time unfortunately.
- Children’s workspace: Include a study desk in the room to instil a habit to read or draw, allowing them explore their creativity. With online classes becoming the new way of learning, they will find it helpful for school work too.
- A messy room can overstimulate a child’s brain, making it difficult to concentrate as well as relax. Assigning a place for everything can help ensure that the room stays neat and tidy a space.
It’s what we’d like to call a ‘Hobby Nook’
, where the little ones can draw, colour, do craft
work, play as well as read.
The built-in closet space here in double storey link home, Oak2 helps keep the room organised, while a study table by the wall gives the little ones a space to explore their creativity.
Have you thought about colours yet?
- Play areas: Assigning a separate area to play in the room gives a designated messy action space instead of having everything scattered over the bed or floor – well that’s the good intention!
Deciding on the right colour can be a daunting task but you don’t have to paint the whole room, introducing a small pop of colour can make a big difference to your little one’s space.
Colours with light and subtle shades can help create a calm environment yet encouraging creativity in the room:
1. Off white
– having white walls can be a nightmare when your little ones decide to use the walls as part of their creative masterpieces (we’ve all been there). Opting for an off white shade like cream, ivory and vanilla will help you hide those crayon and colour pencil marks.
The use of eggshell coloured furniture and paint on the walls in this bedroom in double storey link home, Olive, gives your little ones the space to explore their creativity while being in a calm environment.
– A softer shade of blue, this colour is very versatile and easy to style. You could try pairing it with light coloured furniture with grey, white or light brown tones.
– when used in the bedroom sparsely, this shade will look sophisticated and elegant.
– A gender-neutral shade that can brighten up and add some cheer to any space in your home.

Creating a light filled space
Your child’s room should be a comfortable space where they can build a sense of belonging and security.
Introducing plenty of natural sunlight will give your little ones a comfortable, warm and well-lit space while creating a soft ambiance in the room. This may also help them to concentrate better during their online learning sessions.
This room in double storey link home, Olive does just that through its large windows that welcomes plenty of natural light.
As the day comes to an end, having a comforting light at night goes a long way in making bedtime a breeze. From their favourite cartoon characters to simple night lights, the options are endless.
