As your child grows up, their tastes and needs will change. Designing a kid's room that can adapt to these changes is key to creating a stylish and functional space that will grow with them. Check out our useful tips and our favourite picks of kids’ wallpapers that can do just that!

1. Stick to a neutral colour palette

A neutral colour palette not only creates a calming environment that is perfect for play and relaxation, it also gives you the most flexibility when it comes to adding and changing accents and décor down the line.

2. Select a theme or style that can be easily updated

By choosing a theme or style that can be easily updated, you'll save yourself time and money in the long run. Plus, your child will appreciate having a room that grows with them as their tastes and needs may evolve.

Some popular themes that can easily be updated include botanical and nautical, which can transition to a more grown-up look by simply changing out the bedding and accessories!

3. Add in personal touches that can be changed out easily as your child grows up

Your child's bedroom is a special place where they can play, sleep, and dream. It should be a reflection of their unique personality, and it should be a space that they feel comfortable in. One way to add personal touches to their room is to choose loose items that can be easily changed out as they grow up. For example, you could hang posters or photographs that they can swapping out as they develop new interests. Or, you could display their artwork on the walls or on a bulletin board. These small touches will help to make their room feel like their own personal space.

4. Choose furniture that can be repurposed

When shopping for baby furniture, it can be tempting to choose everything new. However, this is not always the most practical or economical option. Instead, look for furniture that can be repurposed as your child grows. For example, instead of a separate changing station, opt for a dresser with a changing mat on top. The dresser will provide storage for years to come, even as your child grows out of diapers and into clothes. By thinking creatively about furniture choices, you can save both space and money in the long run.

5. Incorporate storage into the design

As any parent knows, kids have a lot of stuff. From clothes to toys to school supplies, it can be tough to keep everything organized. One way to streamline the process is to incorporate storage into the design of a child's room. Utilising space under the bed, in closets, and on walls can create ample storage for all of a child's belongings. This not only keeps the room tidy, but it also makes it easier for kids to find what they need when they need it. As an added bonus, incorporating storage into the design of a child's room can also help to teach them responsibility and organisation skills that will last a lifetime.
