Girls’ Bedroom Ideas: Imagine a space that sparks your child’s imagination, fosters their happiness, and feels like a cozy haven. That’s the power of a well-designed bedroom! We’ve curated some must-haves to create a room that reflects your child’s unique personality while remaining comfortable, stylish, and adaptable. This way, you can avoid constant redecorating as your child grows.

One of the easiest ways to create a room bursting with personality is to focus on the details. Walls, windows, and floors are like blank canvases! Explore wallpaper, paint, fabric, and area rugs to add pops of color, playful patterns, and cozy textures. Feature image courtesy of Studio McGee.

Here are a few girl’s bedroom ideas to get you started:

1. Evaluate the Space

While there aren’t strict rules in decorating a child’s bedroom, a few fundamental principles from the design world can help you create a beautiful and functional space.

Think like a designer:

Measure Up: Grab a tape measure and jot down the room’s dimensions, including doorways, windows, and any built-in features. Remember to measure existing furniture!

Sketch it Out: Get creative! A simple freehand sketch of the room can help you visualize the layout.

Plan the Perfect Layout: Draw a floor plan to scale. This handy reference will be a lifesaver when shopping for furniture and arranging the room.

2. Create a Focal Point

When arranging furniture in your child’s room, the biggest piece usually takes center stage – often the bed! The focal point, like a beautiful pink fabric headboard bed in a room designed by Tori Rubenson, is the first thing that catches your eye when you enter. In this example, cozy white and pink bedding adds layers of softness and texture, creating a truly inviting and magical space.

3. Choose a Color Palette

When designing a kid’s space, color is your key to unleashing their personality. Instead of starting from scratch, look for inspiration in their favorite bedding, wallpaper, or window treatments!

Take this room designed by Atmosphere Design, for example. Soft green, purple, yellow, and white hues are woven throughout the bedding and wallpaper, creating a sophisticated yet playful color palette that reflects the child’s unique style.

4. Play with Pattern

Patterns are a fun way to add personality to your child’s room, set a theme, and even make the space feel bigger or smaller. Wallpaper and fabrics are your playgrounds! Here’s a trick professional designers use:

Mix and Match Scales: Play with different pattern sizes! Use large, eye-catching patterns on furniture pieces of similar size. Medium-sized patterns work well on chairs or ottomans and sprinkle in smaller patterns on accent items like throw pillows.

Look at this magical bedroom designed by Nate Berkus! Kravet’s Mythical Land Wall Covering is a large-scale showstopper with gorgeous pink, peach, orange, and purple hues. It sets the whimsical theme for the room, and the other elements follow suit with smaller patterned accents.

5. Layer Textures

Fabric is your friend when adding texture to a child’s space. Soft cottons and cozy chenilles are perfect for curtains and bedding, creating a layer of comfort and visual interest. But texture goes beyond just fabrics! Think of it as anything that adds depth and dimension – rough or smooth, hard or soft, matte or shiny. Every element can play a part!

Look at these inspiring bedrooms by Mindy Gayer. Linen bedding, woven area rugs, throw pillows, blankets, and even window treatments create a beautiful blend of textures. This playful mix makes the rooms inviting and encourages your child to explore their sense of touch.

6. Add character Pieces You Can Easily Swap Out

Catering to your kid’s interests can be the most fun part of designing their space. Whether animals, dolls, trucks, or anything else sparks their imagination, focus on those themes in easily changeable elements. Artwork, accessories, and pillows are all perfect for showcasing their personality.

Take a look at this lovely peach-hued bedroom designed by Leanne Ford. Notice how the character pieces can be easily swapped out as the child grows, keeping the space fresh and inspiring.

7. Incorporate Mirrors

Mirrors can be powerful design tools in a child’s room. They can:

  • Double Down on Decor: Use a mirror to reflect a favorite pattern, color, or interesting texture in the room, creating a more cohesive look.
  • Brighten Up a Small Space: Strategically placed mirrors can make a small room feel more extensive and more open.
  • Add the Finishing Touch: A beautiful mirror can be the perfect piece to tie a room together.

In the charming little girl’s bedroom below, a gold mirror with a bow complements the floral bedding and soft pink walls, adding a touch of elegance and femininity. It also reflects the light from the window, making the room feel even brighter.

8. Make Timeless Choices

Stripes, ginghams, and plaids – these patterns are like trusty friends: always in style! When choosing a statement piece like a rug or a duvet cover, opting for one of these timeless options ensures your child’s room stays interesting for years.

Take a peek at this neutral girls’ bedroom designed by Shea McGee. The classic plaid wallpaper adds a layer of sophisticated charm that will stay in fashion. Floral, solid, checked pillows create a playful contrast, proving that classic patterns can be an excellent foundation for a fun and functional space.

9. Be Creative with Wallpaper

Wallpaper is a game-changer for kid’s rooms. It can transform the space in a flash, setting the stage for the entire design scheme. But before you dive in, consider these key elements for a perfectly balanced look: proportion, balance, and scale.

Bria Hammel designed this peaceful bedroom with lovely floral wallpaper in calming pinks and greens. This sets the foundation for the entire space. She then expertly echoed this color scheme with the headboards – a soft and feminine pink and white floral print – and green accent pillows. The result? A cohesive and inviting room that your child will love.

10. Get them Involved

When designing your child’s room, turn it into a collaborative project! Show them a curated selection of wallpaper options, bedding choices, or fun pillows. This way, they pick something they love while you ensure everything works well together.

Take a look at this glamorous bedroom designed by Estee Stanley. The designer cleverly curated a soft blush pink color scheme with a gray area rug. Cozy layers of bedding add texture and warmth. Imagine letting your child pick their favorite throw pillows or a fun wallpaper pattern to personalize this space further!

11. Include Window Treatments

Window treatments are like magic wands for a child’s room! They can:

  • Frame the Fun: Use curtains or blinds to draw attention to a beautiful view outside or soften a less desirable one.
  • Color and Pattern Powerhouse: Introduce pops of color and playful patterns with window treatments, adding another layer of personality to the space.
  • Light Control Champions: They allow you to control the amount of natural light coming in, making nap time easier or creating a cozy reading nook.
  • Privacy Protectors: Window treatments provide your child privacy when needed.

Look at this dreamy bedroom designed by Elizabeth Metcalfe! The floor-to-ceiling curtains with a sheer layer underneath add drama and elegance. The canopy bed with matching fabric is the perfect finishing touch, creating a magical space your child will love.

12. Shades of Blue

Soft shades of blue create a peaceful and calming atmosphere in this perfect little girl’s room. The blue and white floral bedding with pin-tucks and matching curtains echo the farmhouse theme, adding a touch of femininity.

The white shiplap ceiling introduces a playful touch, while the blue and white wallpaper and area rug tie the color scheme together. Light wood flooring and white furniture make the space bright and airy, creating a truly inviting haven.

13. Keep it Classic

Trends are fun, but when it comes to your child’s room, classic design is your friend. Here’s why:

  • Built to Last: Choose classic shapes for larger furniture like beds, dressers, or desks. These neutral foundations will easily adapt to changing trends and your child’s growing tastes.
  • Textiles: Once the big pieces are in place, unleash your creativity with textiles! Throw pillows, rugs, and bedding are where you can bring in trendy patterns and colors. These are easier (and cheaper!) to swap out when your child’s tastes evolve.

Think of it like this: Classic furniture is like a blank canvas, and textiles are your paintbrushes. You can create a room that’s both stylish and adaptable, ready to grow with your child!

14. Play with Neutrals

Neutral colors are like magic wands for a girl’s bedroom. Here’s why they’re a great choice:

  • They always stay in style: A neutral backdrop ensures your child’s room stays timeless, even as trends come and go.
  • Endless Creativity: Neutrals act as a blank canvas! You can easily add color and playful patterns with throw pillows, artwork, and bedding. This lets you personalize the space and keep it fresh as your child’s personality grows.
  • Easy to Adapt: As your child’s interests change, you can swap out the colorful accents without redecorating the entire room.

Look at this charming room by Intimate Living Interiors! Cozy textures, playful patterns on the rug, and pops of color in the accessories all come together beautifully on a neutral base. This room perfectly exemplifies how neutrals allow for creativity and easy adaptation over time.

15. Infuse the Space with Country Charm

Tori Rubenson created a charming country haven for this girl’s bedroom using patterns and colors that play off each other beautifully. The Schumacher Chenonceau wallpaper sets the scene with its light blue and white silhouettes of flora and fauna.

It perfectly complements the blue gingham headboard and footboard. Pink polka dot accents, like the bolster pillow and curtains, add a whimsy and freshness. The French canopy bed finishes the look with a touch of classic elegance.

16. Create a Cohesive Design When Using Two Twin Beds

Twin beds? No problem! Here are some tips to create a stylish and fun space:

  • Centerpiece nightstand: Instead of two nightstands use a single stand between the beds. This unexpected move creates a focal point and breaks up the symmetrical look of the twin beds.
  • Rug it together: A large rug underneath both beds will visually tie everything together, grounding the space and making it feel more cohesive.
  • Pattern Play: Feel free to mix and match patterns! This room uses five different floral prints, but you could also combine stripes, plaids, or scallops for a playful and exciting look.

Remember, there are no hard and fast rules for decorating a kid’s room. Let their personality shine through!

Interior designer Jackson Warren brings the tropics indoors with this dreamy teen bedroom. Lush pink and green palm leaf wallpaper (“Palm Leaves by Cole & Son) sets the scene for a relaxing escape. The pink beaded chandelier adds a whimsical touch, while a white hanging rattan swing chair adds a playful element perfect for reading or daydreaming.

The bed is a breezy white with a natural open weave cane headboard to complete the coastal vibe. This light and airy choice complements the wallpaper and allows the palm print to take center stage.

Incorporating a large-scale wallpaper or mural in a child’s bedroom can have several benefits. It can instantly make a bold statement and set the tone for the room’s theme.

Large-scale designs can create a captivating and immersive environment that sparks a child’s imagination and wonder. They can also be a focal point, adding visual interest and personality to the space. Additionally, a well-chosen large-scale wallpaper or mural can make the room more spacious and open, especially when paired with complementary decor.

Area rugs are a wonderful addition to a child’s room for several reasons. They can add warmth and comfort to the space, providing a soft surface for children to play on.

Additionally, shiplap walls can be a versatile backdrop for various decor styles, from traditional to country and farmhouse. The texture and visual interest they provide can elevate the room’s overall aesthetic, making it a stylish and unique setting for a girl to enjoy.
