Harness the wonder of a child?s imagination and bedroom decorating ideas take on a limitless flow of ideas, creativity and quirky fun. This selection of children?s rooms feed off these ideas tempered with the boring adult practicalities of storage space, functionality and sturdiness!
Creating a haven for your little darlings is an opportunity to let your inner child run free. This works fantastically with a set of bunk beds with a difference ?why not fit an MDF board to the front of the bed to create a cosy hideaway area for the bottom and top bunk, with an exposed ladder. Paint the MDF and surrounding walls in pastel tones and decorate with stencils.
Decorate your child?s ceiling with bold striped wallpaper and make this the main feature of the room. Paint the walls in neutral and dark tones with a simple white bed and black chest of drawers and really make the design stand out.
What could be more fun than creating a fantasy bedroom than by covering a wall in a painted fairy-tale mural ? team with stripped floorboards and accessorise with vintage toys. Or add a wall stencil in a bedroom of a giant tree or palm tree as a backdrop to a wrought-iron bed with fun safari style bedding. Finish the look with a sheepskin rug and a garland of lights trailed around the bed.
Create an Alice in Wonderland bedroom with bright and pastel colours and furniture. For a fantasy boy?s room add a red novelty racing car bed so he can dream of being the next Lewis Hamilton and hopefully be happy to go to bed. Complete the primary colour theme with a Union Jack flag above the bed.
Finding enough storage for all those toys is another big issue in a child?s bedroom. Why not create a built-in bunk bed with extra storage space built in for the ultimate fun hideaway.
Flower power is back! This little girl's room is both feminine and funky. An MDF board fitted to the front of the bed creates a little hideaway on the bottom bunk.
Imagine seeing those stripes first thing in the morning! Fortunately, the neutral palette and soft fur rugs balance it out.
Step into a fairytale with colourful walls, vintage toys and stripped floorboards.

A decorative wooden frame and back panel will add instant charm to a basic box bunk. Paint it in a bold colour, such as this dashing red, to make an eye-catching statement. You can then use the bed as the basis for the rest of your colour scheme, adding hits of similar tones in your accessories and soft furnishings.
With the wrong curtains, a four-poster bed can border on twee. To keep things fresh and contemporary, pick a fabric with a playful print, such as the abstract tree motif shown here. A truckle will come in handy when friends sleep over without taking up valuable floor space the rest of the time.
A bespoke bed will allow you to make the most of all available space in your child's bedroom as well as incorporating fun elements, such as this under-bed den. Stick to neutral decor with a few grown-up touches - the subdued floral wallpaper and crystal chandelier used here, for example - so your child does not outgrow the scheme too quickly.
