5 Simple Bedroom Ideas for Kids

Beautiful nursery with woodland animals wallpaper

Kids grow so fast – sometimes as a parent it’s hard to keep up with their ever changing likes and dislikes! What’s cool one day is totally over the next… Which can make coming up with bedroom decor ideas that both you and your child are happy with for a few years really challenging! Here are 5 kids bedroom ideas that I’ve put together to give you some inspiration:

1. Scandi Mountains

This idea for a kids bedroom is super-cute! You can create your mountains in a number of different ways, either by painting a feature wall or by wallpapering. If you paint the wall, you can go for any colours you like! You can also alter the look depending on the age of your child. Here are a few examples:

This simple blue and grey look from I Spy DIY also looks great and is also simple to create.

For a slightly more grown-up kids bedroom idea, you could go for a more grown up style of mural like this one from ‘The Decorologist’. There is also a lovely tutorial for how to achieve the look on the website too:

Accessorising The Scandi Kids Bedroom Look

There are lots of ways that you can further incorporate this theme through the decor in the room. For example over at Pages of Emma’s blog, she has done an amazing upcycle of a set of Ikea drawers for her son’s scandi-themed room:

2. Jungle Theme Kids Bedroom

Another idea for a super-cute kids bedroom theme is ‘jungle’. There are some amazing wallpapers available to create this look on a feature wall:

You can team this look with some great accessories; think natural wood furnishings, natural wicker lampshades, animal print rugs and bold animal artwork:

One of my favourite bloggers, Melaniejadedesign.com recently did an amazing transformation on her son’s bedroom which shows how to really pull this theme together:

I love the way that Melanie has used the fantastic jungle wallpaper as a backdrop and teamed it with mustard tones from the wallpaper and lots of different natural textures.

3. Woodland Animals Kids Bedroom Ideas

Probably my absolutely favourite bedroom idea for kids has to be woodland animals, in fact I had this in one of my son’s bedrooms when he was smaller! There are all kinds of ways in which you can use this idea.

Here are some other ideas for stunning wallpapers:

If you don’t fancy wallpaper there are lots of lovely wall decals you can use to liven up plain walls. You can simply remove them when your child has outgrown them:

To complete the look, go for simple furnishings, either white or natural woods, in keeping with the scandi feel. Soften it with a fluffy rug or throw and maybe some cute art work:

4. Butterflies and Insects

I love this idea as it can be super-soft and girly, or it can be quite subtle and grown-up, for example as in this bedroom designed by Nicole Hollis:

5. Horses

For the little equestrian in your life (I’m talking proper horses – NOT unicorns!) how about taking it a bit farmhouse with some wood panelling and simple decor:

You could also add a gallery wall of all their favourite horse pictures / momentos:
