Designing a Kid’s Room That Inspires Creativity

From a child’s perspective, their bedroom is their very own corner of the world. It’s the one place that belongs to only them, and a safe space where they can go to be alone if they need to. Not only that, but it’s also the place where they keep all their favorite things, and a place for them to let their imagination run wild.

There are many ways to help kids amplify their creativity, from activities that they enjoy to simple encouragement and allowing them the freedom to choose what they like. Another great way to bring out the creative side of your child is to combine creativity with their favorite place: their bedroom!

Allowing your child to choose the theme of their room gives them a huge sense of empowerment and makes them feel like their opinion matters. While of course, the adults need to make the big decisions like how much money to spend or whether the space will allow for what they want, involving your kiddo in the process will definitely contribute to their happiness!

Some possible ideas for creative kid’s rooms are below for you to suggest to your little interior designer:

TreeHouse Room

If it seems like your kiddo is always up a tree, why not turn their room into their very own treehouse? Depending on the allowable space, you can get very creative here. By putting a tiny treehouse in their room (or getting a platform-style bunk bed set), painting trees all over the walls, or making them a ground-level fort, you can give them their own personal canopy to feel right at home in!


Video Game Room


If your little one is into video games, a great way to acknowledge their hobby is to create a video game room. By painting pictures of their favorite characters on the walls, getting them a game console-style bed, or adding chairs (or pillows) in the shape of game elements, they can feel like they’re living in their favorite game! This helps them feel connected even without the screen time, and as a bonus, it can work for favorite books and TV shows, too!


Princess Room

If your little one is a princess fan, turn their room into their very own palace! Pink and purple are popular color themes here, but if your child has a different favorite color that works, too — blues, golds, and sparkles are also very princess-y. A table where they can have tea parties, a royal bed — perhaps with a canopy? — and plenty of dress-up clothes to choose from will all contribute to the princess vibe. As long as they feel like a princess when they’re in there, anything goes with this theme! You can even tone down the princess vibe and sprinkle in some cottagecore aesthetic.


Under the Sea Room

Have a budding Marine Biologist or Scuba Diver at home? Why not bring the deep blue sea to them? This is an especially fun theme, as it involves lots of painting and bright colors — a perfect way for kiddos to get involved. Try a coral reef seascape on the wall complete with various brightly colored ocean life, a submarine-style bed with ocean-themed bedding, or a treasure chest to store their favorite toys. They’ll love their underwater digs and might even learn a few things about ocean life in the process!


Sports Theme Room

If your kiddo is into sports, they’ll likely be ecstatic with a room that reflects their passion. Whether they love basketball, baseball, football, or any other sport, you can really have some fun here: a basketball hoop laundry hamper, football-shaped pillows, or a soccer ball-style bed are all great choices. You can even paint the logo of their favorite team on the walls! Having a room all their own in the theme of their favorite pastime is a great choice for a creative kid’s room!

You Can Create a Kid’s Room Filled with Creative Inspiration

As you can see, the options are limitless when it comes to designing a creative kid’s room. If they’re not into any of the themes suggested here, talk to them about their favorite things and have a brainstorming session together. You might be surprised at what they can come up with when given the chance! Allowing your child to have a creative space will allow them to fully express themselves and help them explore the world. Help them ignite their imagination.

There are so many ways we can inspire our children to play and create with their imagination, and the more we allow this, the better. One of the best ways is to give your little creative genius the freedom of choice; with so many aspects of their lives run by adults, a little control helps them thrive!
