7 Creative Bed Ideas for Children’s Rooms
Upgrade a child’s space with one of these magical bedroom design ideas
This lovely design by Murs et Merveilles shows how even a small kids’ room can be turned into a magical hideaway. By tucking a timber-framed bed into a corner and covering the walls around it in a tree-patterned paper, the space feels cosy and inviting and makes an asset of the enclosed area.
Underbed storage is also useful in a small space, and a drawer like this one can be ideal for stashing toys and bedding out of sight. Alternatively, with the addition of a mattress, it could be transformed into an extra bed for sleepovers.
