The market for children’s bedroom furniture is hot!
Consumers have more choices than ever before, especially with the advent of new and exciting bedroom themes and furniture designs for both boys and girls rooms. Popular cartoon characters alone create so many options for room themes.
But what types of children’s furniture should you buy? Should you go with white, un-finished or the traditional oak furniture in the bedroom? Should it be contemporary or traditional in design? Read on to help you decide what’s best for your child’s bedroom. . .
The Bed – So very many options exist for beds! Whether it’s a race car bed, or a castle, a cell phone, a cartoon character or frog bed, be sure your child’s interest will last for awhile. You won’t want to switch it out relatively soon, so be careful about your decision.
A child’s bedroom with bunk beds is usually a fun option, and there are lots of cool, contemporary designs to pick from. Bunk beds make a lot of sense if two children are sharing a room, and they want or need more play space.
Just make sure one of the children is content with the top bunk for awhile!
Table And Chairs – It’s always nice to have a table and chairs set in both boys and girls rooms. When he or she has friends over, it can be used for coloring, playing a game or pretending they’re in school.
Plus, it can always be moved to a playroom later—versatility rules!
Desk – When purchasing children’s bedroom furniture, some people opt not to get a child’s desk. I really don’t think it’s a good idea, though. Why not do all you can to encourage your child to be studious? If you ask me, the presence of a child’s desk says “let’s study!”
Besides, I always had a desk growing up, and felt it was my own special work space where I did both school work and art projects.
Extra Chair – If you have the space, why not add a cool, extra chair in the corner of your child’s room? The chair can be a fun, outlandish, bean bag chair (since they’re relatively inexpensive), or a funky, trendy chair. I’ve always liked bean bag chairs myself!
I had a bright lime green one as a child. Funny how the bean bag chair still works…but now it has a “retro look”! The chair can be a nice place for your child to read, work on the computer, listen to music or talk on the phone (when older)!
Children’s bedroom furniture should be both fun and functional. Decide what furniture pieces make the most sense given the layout of your child’s bedroom, and his or her interests.
Also, remember that a table and chairs set, desk, and extra chair can be used in both boys and girls rooms, and in a playroom.

How about a flowers bedroom theme?
My little niece just loves flowers. Her bedroom has flowers everywhere! Of course, the flowers themselves are all in the same simplistic, graphic style and the colorsâ€”pinks, purples, yellows, greens and blues–are all of the same hue so they look really great together.
She has a flower sponge-painted border that lines the ceiling and door frames, and cute flower picture frames on her adorable white desk trimmed with pink. Above her desk is a fun, flower cork board.
And a collage of small flower prints, in white picture frames adorns the opposite wall. The collage is greatâ€”the white frames make the flower colors really “pop” and the whole wall has a clean, bright, and graphically interesting look. Girls room decorating can be so much fun!

Kids room decorating ideas are best when they come from what your child is passionate about! For example, my little nephew is fanatical about race cars. In fact, he has a collection of Hot Wheels too high to count. Out of all the possible bedroom themes, he knew he wanted a racing car theme, and he just loves it!
His bed is in the shape of an actual racing car, his bedroom lamp bases are race cars, and he has a race car light switch plate. He also has adorable race car framed prints above his bed.
The prints are all of red race cars–his favorite color! And a race car play rug sits on the floor, where he eagerly races his favorite Nascar Hot Wheels with his friends!
