A little boys room should be, not just a place to sleep, but their own haven. A place to play and to work… as well as to dream.
It should have a little whimsy and a lot of fantasy, where lovely things happen and he or she can imagine their way to adulthood. The best rooms are those which reflect your children’s personalities; they’re like mini-versions of yourself!
If you want to create an inviting atmosphere in your kids’ bedroom that’s small but decorative then there are some simple décor ideas that will help make sure that every time they enter their room they feel at home.

The key thing when designing any kid’s room is to use lots of natural materials. This includes wooden toys, furniture, rugs and curtains. Natural elements add character and personality to a room without being too loud. They also provide a sense of security and warmth.

A child’s room needs extra storage space, and to take full advantage of the floor room so there is a place to play. This means having lots of drawers, shelves and cubbies. There’s no need for clutter here – everything has its place.

A child’s room, as well as being bright and airy, needs to be durable and easy, so that fingerprints don’t damage a wall or foot-tracks ruin a carpet, and its requires us to be aware that we can’t, and actually shouldn’t limit them stringently in their own space, by adding a cream colored carpet that we may love, but simply isn’t practical.

When designing a little boys room we chose to use white painted pine boards because they were inexpensive and available at any home improvement store.
They also look great when paired up against dark woods. We used 1/4 inch thick plywood sheets for all our baseboards and trim. These are very strong and stable materials which won’t warp over time.
