Transforming a child’s bedroom

Decorating a child’s bedroom can be one of the most exciting experiences in home design for you and your little one. Watching the excitement in a child’s eyes as they walk into their new bedroom can be an experience you’ll never forget. Designing a children’s room allows you to unleash your creative juices in a way you might not feel inclined to across the rest of your home. Unlike the kitchen, lounge or dining room, there is no need to restrain yourself to “adult” colour schemes and grown up themes in a child’s bedroom so you and your little one can let your imaginations run wild, creating a space which is all their own. An interior designer can assist you in the creation of your child’s new bedroom in a number of ways. Here are just a couple of ways we can help at Hannah Barnes Designs:

  1. Creative storage solutions

2. Dreamy beds

You can put to rest the idea of the standard bed in a child’s bedroom, if you choose to. There are beds available which are the stuff of dreams for kids. Castle beds for little princesses and fort beds for knights. Whatever you can dream up is a possibility on your child’s bedroom.

3. Colour schemes


You might feel inclined to use an eclectic colour palette to reflect your child’s personality – or you may wish to create a calming, relaxing atmosphere to help kids unwind (and sleep, hopefully). We can help you select colours that work for you and your little ones, in paint suitable for children’s rooms (i.e. highly enduring and wipeable). Considering creating a new space for your little one? Hannah Barnes can help.
