Welcome to our main kids’ bedroom design photo gallery where we feature boy and girl bedroom designs.


30 years ago as a kid, I was really into my bedroom design and layout.

I kept a clean room and every few months would rearrange everything to give it a new look.

My parents decorated the walls with some fantastic pirate ship wallpaper to make it fun.  5 years later I didn’t care about my room so much.

Fast forward 30 years, I now have a 2-year-old and kids’ bedroom ideas is something I care about.  I want my kids’ room to be a design and include furniture they like and enjoy.

To that end, below is a batch of pictures of fun children’s bedroom designs.  The range is huge so there’s definitely something there for everyone.

Types of Kids Bedroom Design

The average new home has 3.38 bedrooms of which one of them is always a master bedroom, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The average living space devoted to other bedrooms is 481 square feet. And interest in rooms for multigenerational living options is growing, explains the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

Parents and psychologists recognize the need for children to have their own space. The types of kids bedroom designs reflect this fact. Mom and Dad may also view separate rooms as a sign of providing for them. Planning a child’s space is a different process because of the special considerations you need to include. Let’s go over the things you need to keep in mind.

A. Preliminary Bedroom Planning

It’s essential to remember that a kid’s bedroom will likely change every few years as they approach adulthood. Tastes and interests evolve as they develop. The room will also serve different functions which will, in turn, affect your planning. While they’re still important, design elements and the principles of design may take a backseat to your child’s wants.

You’ll still need to consider all aspects of creating this space. There are building permits and regulations. If you’re making major changes to a room, you’ll also need to get a structural engineer involved in the process. And, of course, there is the all-important budget.

B. Bedroom Costs

Most homeowners plan for the possibility of extra bedrooms with nearly 80 percent preferring houses with three or four rooms, according to the NAHB. You can confine your additional costs to the interior decorating. If space is tight, you might want to consider adding a closet which will run you under $2,000 on average. The essential thing is to account for every expense.

Keep an estimate of what you want to do from painting walls to installing flooring to adding furniture. You should expect to pay under $2,000 for a quality bedroom set. You might find some less expensive options with secondhand pieces or repurposed furniture. Bear in mind that you’ll be replacing it more often than the investment you’d make in a master bedroom suite.

C. Types of Kids Bedroom Designs

The types of kid bedrooms include a combination of the number of users, gender, and child’s age. These factors underlie the traditional aspects of color, style, and furnishings. That means that there are numerous types. Let’s consider some of the most important ones.

1. Single versus Shared Room

Many kids view having a bedroom to themselves as a luxury. It’s a private place that they can make their own with all the things they need and want. A child learns a lot to about personal responsibility and organization. It lays a solid foundation for future life. But sharing a bedroom also has its advantages.

Children pick up skills that will prepare them for tomorrow’s challenges such as dorm life. They learn to respect each other’s space. And they can still have their own place for personal items. It can act as an excellent transition for younger kids first learning to sleep without their parents. You can opt for matching twin beds or a space-saver solution.

2. Bunk Bed Style

Bunk beds offer privacy while providing a practical solution that takes up less real estate for a small bedroom. Some pieces include other options like added storage or a built-in desk. You’ll find L-shaped units and even ones that can accommodate three kids. This style has evolved far beyond the traditional one.

You’ll find them with only one bed and a desk in place of the second. Ladders are the most common option for getting to the top berth. Some have drawers that function like stairs. Like adult bedroom sets, you’ll see bunk beds in a variety of styles such as rustic and modern.

3. Loft Style

Less than 3 percent of bedrooms are the loft style. It’s something that needs to be a part of the initial floor plan. You could also add it as an addition. You can expect to pay $20,000 or more going that route. Another option is a loft style bed. It mirrors the feel of being in one of these rooms but at a safer height off the floor for young ones.

4. Girl’s Bedroom

A girl’s bedroom can run the gamut from a feminine princess style to something more on the practical side with a built-in desk and wardrobe—and everything in between. Some may include canopies or decorative features right out of a fairy tale. After all, a bed can be functional and fun. It can act as the focal point for a bedroom theme.

Added features like a desk can make other tasks such as homework more enjoyable. Parents will appreciate anything that can encourage their kids to complete their school lessons.

5. Boy’s Bedroom

A boy’s bedroom can follow the same lead with styles that appeal to them. You’ll find a wide selection of beds with canopies and tents. You’ll see them in the shape of cars and boats. Other have functional features like desks and extra storage. The great thing about these types of kids bedroom designs is that they stimulate a child’s imagination.

D. Features

The features of kid bedroom lean toward the simpler end of the spectrum rather than the ornate wood carvings of distinctly adult styles like Victorian. The same applies to patterns which are often bold but not loud. The goal of a kid’s room is the same as that of an adult: to help encourage a good night’s rest.

1. Flooring Options

Carpet is the most popular flooring found in over 40 percent of bedrooms. It’s a good choice for a child’s room because it’s softer than other materials like hardwood. But spills happen. Grape juice is just as hard to remove here as red wine is in the dining room. Then, there’s the mold you’ll have to deal with when you discover a neglected stain. Other options include:

  • Vinyl Tile
  • Cork
  • Laminate
  • Bamboo

2. Furnishings

The furniture for a child’s room needn’t reach the expense of a high-quality master bedroom set. You can get by with cheaper options without sacrificing versatility. In fact, you’ll find many pieces that serve a variety of functions making them a more worthwhile purchase. For example, a bunk bed with a chest of drawers can save on the cost of getting another piece.

The furniture tends to be smaller and lower to the ground especially in pieces designed for younger children. Just remember that you’ll likely be replacing them sooner rather than later as your child grows. Consider repurposing secondhand furnishings to keep your costs down. You’ll be surprised at the big impact a new coat of paint can bring.

3. Lighting

Lighting offers a fun way to add some character to a kid’s room. Think of a table lamp with the image of a favorite character. Overhead options like ceiling or pendants lights will ensure the bedroom is well-lit to help avoid falls. If your child’s bunk bed has a desk, be sure to add a reading light to prevent eye strain.

Younger children will appreciate a nightlight or two to keep the monsters at bay while they sleep. Opt for light bulbs with warm colors rather than cool ones to avoid disrupting their slumber.

4. Shelving and Storage

Shelving and extra storage are essential features for a kid’s bedroom. They’ll help encourage children to clean up after themselves and put things back in their place. Options such as a reading nook can serve a dual function to spark the imagination of young minds. You can choose bunk beds that include drawers or go with a separate toy organizer.

Shop the Look.

E. Style

Bedrooms for kids often blur the line between style and theme. You may see obvious examples of styles like contemporary or rustic. But you may also find industrial decor with cartoon characters. Or a particular look might not be evident at all, making it more like an eclectic room with collections of toys and miscellaneous mementos.

Probably the best way to describe a kid’s bedroom is that it is an expression of the individual. It contains the colors and objects they prefer regardless of the guidelines of a style. But the most popular bedroom decors across the board are:

These choices reflect the changing landscape of bedroom design as today’s youth seek to find their own voice even with the most personal decisions like their living space. Our advice is to ask your child what they like so that they take ownership of it.

F. Size

The average size for a Mom and Dad’s master bedroom is 309 square feet. A child’s room hovers more in the 120 to 150 square foot realm. Using the NAHB data, it’ll be around 200 square feet. This smaller space makes features like bunk beds and multifunctional furniture a smart option to optimize the available area.

Remember a kid’s bedroom is an active space. There has to be plenty of room for the other purposes the room will serve as well as the extra people that may occupy it at a given time. Plan on about three feet of unobstructed area around all open sides of the bed. Take into account the extra real estate you’ll need for opening drawers or closet doors.

G. Color

The colors for a child’s room often include bold, bright colors. They create a positive energy for a bedroom that can make it more inviting. Be prepared for choices that you wouldn’t consider yourself. Children look at the world differently than adults. You can use a neutral hue like white for a backdrop to splashes of other shades to avoid overstimulation.

H. Function

A kid’s bedroom differs from other types because they are often multifunctional. You may use the dining room table as a desk occasionally. But a child may use the one in their room on a daily basis for studying. It may also act as a playroom especially when the weather turns foul. And even single rooms will need extra space or chairs for friends.

I. Special Considerations

Decorating a child’s bedroom involves additional considerations that you don’t have with an adult’s room. Many will influence your kid’s enjoyment of a space as well as your budget. Make sure to keep these things in mind before buying. You’ll likely find it’s a smarter move to forgo some extra bells and whistles that your children will outgrow quickly anyway.

1. Lifespan

Your child’s taste will change as she grows up sometimes surprisingly fast. They often follow fads and movie releases. That makes them variable which can lead to more frequent bouts of redecorating. You can eke out more of the lifespan of a bedroom design by thinking forward to the next change.

If you can, try to sway your child toward more evergreen themes like fairy tales or nautical decor. That way, you won’t be under pressure to deck out the bedroom in the likeness of the rising star every time someone new takes the reins. You might also consider just adding a few pieces that speak to the latest trends to make it easier to update.

2. Gender

Gender is an important consideration in a room for both girls and boys. Younger children are sensitive to their changing environment and the approval of their peers. Listen to what your child wants for their bedroom. That includes all aspects of the design including whether or not it’s a shared space.

3. The Bedroom and Your Child’s Wellbeing

It’s impossible to overemphasize the importance of good sleep. With children, it’s even more essential because of the impact on their health. It can have long-lasting effects on academic performance and self-esteem. These factors up the game when it comes to kid bedroom designs. It’ll also mean some tough decisions when it comes to adding other features like a TV.

4. Cleanliness

Let’s face it. Kids are messy sometimes. It’s something you need to consider no matter what bedroom design you choose. Find out the stain resistance of the materials you use including the carpeting. Also, check the labels for cleaning instructions before buying accessories such as window treatments and bedding.
