The summer months are the easiest time to update and transform your kid’s bedroom. The lighter nights, warmer weather and sunny mood make transforming your kid’s bedroom a bit easier, especially if you’re working hard to get it done after a long day at work.
When updating any kids bedroom it is beneficial to design and adapt a bedroom that allows your child to comfortably grow and work with their interests for the next few years. Consider passions they have, overall interests and practical solutions that will work as they grow. Will they need more storage? Where will they do their homework? Will your kids need to share rooms with siblings? All of these things are ideas to consider when revamping and upgrading their bedroom. Here’s our guide to a summer bedroom update to get you started:
Invest in the essentials
If you get the essential elements of any bedroom right then everything else will fit in perfectly. From the wardrobe to the bed, you must pick something that will last and can quite possibly be passed down to younger siblings as one child grows out of their needs. For example, a hard-wearing mid sleeper can last a child well into their teenage years and make the perfect bed for any sibling.

Look how they use their space
Over the next week, watch how your child uses their bedroom, check what works well in their bedroom, how they use items in there and what could be developed or incorporated. As your children grow they may spend more and more time in their bedroom as bedtime gets pushed back and they want more independent time, you can see exactly what they use and what is taking up vital space and storage.
Your kids might also have some great ideas that they’ve seen when they’ve been at friends’ houses that you might not have thought about and would be perfect in their bedroom. A summer bedroom update will be complete in no time at all with plenty of planning.
Plenty of storage
Storage in a kids bedroom is essential. With a room brimming with toys, entertainment and school essentials, it is important to have somewhere where everything can be stored neatly and accessed safely. One of the easiest options is to choose a bed with plenty of built-in storage such as a mid sleeper bed, as it doesn’t take up any more floor space but provides you with much-needed storage.
Take on your kids summer bedroom update this month and they’ll have the perfect space to relax after a long day at school come September. And we’re sure they’ll need it if things hopefully go back to normal!
