We put together our top tips for helping you create a bedroom suitable for toddlers to teens.

Creating a room that inspires learning, play and growth while being versatile enough to last until the teenage years may sound like a tall order. With a little planning, it's easy to create a space that younger members of the family will love.

Colour

While children's rooms are a great excuse to get out those bold and bright colour paints, it's worth planning whether that funky yellow or racy red you have chosen will become a fad colour or whether you can adapt it to see them through to their teen years. A good alternative is to choose a timeless neutral colour scheme but update accessories and soft furnishings to tie in with favourite trends. If you are still looking to add a colour splash, consider one of our vinyl floors from the Artesia collection that explores pattern and colour.

Comfort

Youngsters rooms have to stand up to being a playroom during the day and a restful space at night. As with adults, bedrooms need to be comforting, welcoming spaces so consider the cosy element when designing their room. Bean bags have always been a hit for older children and provide an excellent opportunity to crash out in comfort. Choose lighting options that are practical but also include a calming light, such as a bedside option that provides reassuring calm.

Storage

Play is a crucial element in child development but stepping on building bricks half-way through the night is not! Having tidy boxes and enough storage to declutter at the end of every day is an excellent way of encouraging a neat bedroom. Storage bins are relatively easy to pick up and can be a great alternative to toy boxes, plus they come in a range of great colours – making it easy to pair with your chosen design scheme.

Durability

Child bedrooms take quite a bashing when it comes to playing, so choosing products that are safe and provide a durable solution are often top of the list when planning a room. A vinyl floor is a great solution and can cope with the budding Picasso's who like to doodle!
