Kids Bedding & Room Decor
If there is one thing that every parent knows, it’s that every child is different — in looks, personality, and interests. It stands to reason, then, that a child’s room ought to reflect those individual traits, whether your kid is a toddler or a teen.
Parents usually know a couple of other very important things about their children. They are changelings, and their enthusiasms run hot and cold, often at will. Today’s favorite t-shirt or stuffed animal may become tomorrow’s “don’t want to be seen with or have anywhere near me!” When choosing wall colors, bedroom accessories and kids bedding, a child’s dream can become a parent’s nightmare.
How to Make It Easier (on Yourself)
There are some time-tested strategies for easing the task of decorating a kid’s bedroom, however. As a professional interior designer with a great love for helping parents achieve great kids’ room decor, I have a few tips:
- Keep in mind that you aren’t decorating for the long term. You wouldn’t want to, because your little one is going to change in numerous ways before leaving “the nest.” Your goal should be to provide an adaptable “shell” that will please your child during all those stages and phases.
- Your kid’s room is still a room in your home; therefore, it should be “in sync” with the rest of the house in major ways.
- It may be obvious, but you hold the purse strings, and you have the right to set budgetary limits.
As a parent myself, I have one more tip for anyone facing the pleas of a child who wants to redecorate in personal style: Join in! Embrace the opportunity to foster a bit of independence in your child, give in to the quirky likes and (sometimes) zany styles that your kid prefers, and demonstrate your adult abilities to compromise and to accommodate.

A One-Stop Shop with Lots of Options
Explore possibilities, but remember it’s the overall look that’s important. Select a reversible duvet of durable fabric, and supplement the look with your child’s choice of accessories. Let the sheets express a penchant for “with-it” favorites — maybe robots or butterflies. Use zingy colors, wild patterns or specialty fabrics for accessory pillows and nap blankets. Speak with your child about how to build a look that is unique. If your pre-teen isn’t quite ready to abandon a stuffed animal collection, so be it. The time will come soon enough when sophistication beats out sentimentality.
All the companies represented here are leaders in style, service and quality. You won’t be disappointed, whether you build a room one item at a time, or order kids bedding in a bag. It’s entirely your choice!
