A themed kid's bedroom can sometimes be offputting, especially when you know your child's interests can swap and change so quickly. However, there are quite a few ways you can find a simple way to incorporate their passion into their bedroom, no matter if it's Lego, LOLs, fairy princesses or nerf guns.
We understand the importance of letting your kids express themselves, however, it is important to get the basic bedroom furniture right so they can last the years as your child grows. Themed bedroom just needs the basics, and you can adapt everything else as your child continues to grow. So where do you start with themed kid's bedroom inspiration? Look no further, we've got some top bedroom ideas right here.
Gain some space
To maximise the space in their bedroom you might want to consider investing in a mid or a high sleeper to maximise floor space and available storage. Mid sleepers and high sleepers that incorporate essential storage and furniture reduce the need for additional furniture in your kids bedrooms. Meaning you can optimise how your kids use their room and incorporate more functional space whatever that need may be.

It’s almost time for the clocks to change, the nights become lighter and days become longer, and most parents know that the change in clocks can often play havoc in a bedtime routine and getting kids to sleep on time. Kids have no ideas if they're coming or going as the routine they were used to has gone.
Keep to your routine
Don’t change anything just because the clocks have changed. It is important to stick to the routine you already have like clockwork. Homework, tea, bath, story time and lights out all need to continue at the same time.
Not only will this give you a bit of time on an evening but it will also ensure your little ones get the amount of sleep that they need before another busy day ahead.
Get beds they love
If your child loves their bed and the idea of bedtime then they are a lot more likely to get into bed each night and drift off. Whether it is a mid sleeper, in the style of a race car or princess bed or a bunk bed to share with siblings, knowing your kids want to go to bed is often half the battle.

As they grow you also need to change and adapt their nursery into a room suitable for an explorative toddler.

Knowing when the right moment is to transition from a cot to a toddlers bed isn’t straightforward and unfortunately, no one size fits all when it comes to this process. However, simple signs that it might be time to scale up is that they will climb out of their cot.

Keep it neutral
