Children’s bedrooms are a place for fun and excitement, a magical space to inspire creativity, to express personality and where whimsical patterns can capture the imagination.

When it comes to decorating a room for your little one to play and grow in, the scope seems limitless and the experience of choosing designs for different ages and personalities should be a lot of fun.

Paula Taylor, Trends and Design expert at Superfresco Easy recognises the huge impact that a room’s aesthetic can have on a child’s overall mood.

“When looking to create a fun and peaceful environment, walls are a big consideration as the tone and pattern can influence mood, thoughts and emotions,” Paula said.

“While soft tones might be well suited for a nursery a more bold and playful design can appeal to toddlers and older children.”

Creativity and a playful approach are key when considering the ‘fun’ elements of a child’s bedroom; optimising the space for good sleeping is also a priority. Just as any bedroom should be a sanctuary, it is especially important for children. A child’s bedroom should be a haven, a space they love to spend time in, in contrast to the often fast-paced and overstimulation of their every day.

It’s important to choose a design that evokes calmness and relaxation in your child’s bedroom alongside elements that are fun and carefree.

“Striking the right balance between a space that captures the imagination and appeals to our little ones’ inner calm can be achieved through the careful selection of tone and texture on the walls,” Paula said.

“Soft designs and soft colours go hand in hand in creating a peaceful haven, while bright and whimsical designs can inspire and uplift an overall mood.

“Neutrals and cool shades tend to give off a sense of calmness and relaxation, while warm, bright colours often feel energetic. Light colours help to visually expand a space, while dark colours can feel cosy and enveloping.”
