A child's bedroom is his or her sanctuary - it's where small people play, learn, sleep and dream.
Whatever the space you have available for your child's room, it's easy to create the perfect space for both rest and play.
Here, we walk you through five easy steps to creating this beautiful room. From the paint colours to the furniture and everything inbetween, step this way for everything you need to get your hands on to create this perfect play space...
1/5 Hardwearing furniture
Solid, well-made furnishings will give a child's bedroom a sense of calm serenity. Add a bold, earthy colour above a painted dado rail to make it a warm, fun play space, too.
2/5 Use sisal flooring
A kid's' room should be virtually indestructible, but that doesn't mean a style-free void. A utilitarian, sisal carpet and muted fabrics mean you can use strong colour on the walls - and, even better, change it without replacing anything else.
3/5 Opt for muted fabrics
Bedding and accessories in pale colours give this cottage-style bedroom timeless charm.
Find the Ticking pillowcase and linen sheet at Toast.
4/5 Go for earthy colour
Paint your children's bedroom in warm, earthy tones for an authentic country-style look.
Find the Flower Pot matt wall emulsion at Earthborn.
5/5 Save space with baskets
Save floor space by hanging baskets on the wall for toys and bedding.
Find boxes to suit every budget, from hand-crafted plywood cases, to white-lidded card boxes with a blackboard panel for labelling from aplaceforeverything.co.uk.
