Design of the kids' room is challenging, when the room is small, it is challenging even more. My kids are growing up and they will move to their own room soon, so I decided to go through the new kid's furniture trends to get an inspiration.
I browsed lots of examples, but decided to show only the best matching to my goal: decoration of a very small room for two toddler kids.
According to Feng Shui nothing should be stored under beds and bunk beds aren't the best choice. It is also not recommended to hang things above the head. This is exactly what I always felt intuitively. Surprisingly, I found a lot of bunk beds and under bed storage spaces in the contemporary bed rooms' designs. Well, it is space - justified, but we are looking for the comfy feeling, aren't we? As always, let's try to find a compromise.
The first one that I really like is a modern and quite a minimalistic design from http://designvarious.com collection of interiors:
This is a very clean and light furniture complex. No massive storage units under the bed and the bunk bed is modified, so only part of the body will be under the second level. And it is quite compact.
A similar approach, but more girly style here:
A somewhat upgraded twist of the idea above, just much more massive on the indoor design portal:
The next one I found on http://hepok.com/ideas-kids-bedroom-furniture/, there are many other interesting ideas, so it is worth a visit. This is for a really tiny room, but it came out surprisingly light. Nice walls and matching window treatment. Bold vertical lines allow to wide the room visually.
There are a few good bedroom decoration ideas here (color scheme mostly), but one design I liked:
Well, this is for those who have enough space... However, sliding bed idea may be used in the small flats as well. Thought I don't like it personally.
Another sliding bed option that was found here:
This design solution I liked visually. Even though there is a lot of storage space under the beds, it looks fantastically light and very space-wise. I found it here. This site is definitely must to have a look at.
I will be happy to hear back from you. What did you like? What kind of design solution do you currently have? Do you want to change it?
