Hints and Tips
- Invest in neutral, long-lasting pieces. Choosing neutral, quality beds and wardrobes, means they will stand the test of time and you can inject some fun with affordable accessories such as the fur chair or a vibrant rug that can easily be updated as they grow. These rugs are both available from Wayfair.
- Wallpaper is great in children’s bedrooms and if you choose a style such as stars or stripes, they will also age well and can be updated with new pieces as necessary.
- A high-rise bed will allow for room underneath for either workspace or play space and make the room feel larger.
- Incorporate plenty of storage but try to have storage the children can access themselves when they want to play such as benches with low baskets otherwise things can tend to be forgotten about!
