I must admit that it’s been more than a few years since I decorated a kids room. I’m at that in-between stage where kids are grown and gone but no grand babies are in the mix yet (which is just fine with me!). It’s still fun to find adorable kid’s room designs though. Some of these are cute enough that I’d be just fine spending a day or two in them myself.
Kid’s Room Tips from The Better Mom:
- Paint is the number one best way to add impact without much money. You can use paint not only on walls, but furniture and room accents. By far the best bang for your buck.
- Bedding is the next key element. When choosing bedding, consider a more plain or classic design that can last a while, and then if your child likes a certain cartoon character, or theme, you can just add sheets and a pillow sham to bring in that favorite theme your child has been wanting.
- Window treatments are a simple way to add impact in a room.
- Lighting can be fun whether overhead or with lamps. Be sure to think about the function of the room when considering lighting.
- Wall decals and stencils are a great item to decorate with for kids rooms.
- Accent pillows and rugs are always easy to find and add in for extra color and impact.
Leo & Noah are certainly lucky kids. This Pottery Barn interior design is adorable! We love the white background which really makes the Navy Blue accents “pop” in this space. The finished result if fun and carefree.
Whales are super popular this year and this adorable nursery proves the reason why. They are adorable! The Prints are available from ZeppiPrints on Etsy.
Old nautical flags make clever curtains. Each matching metal bed features a striped coverlet for unity. Is the striped wallpaper a bit too much though?
This bunk room was featured in House Beautiful Magazine and feels like a ship’s cabin. It is lined with six bunks, four on one side and two on the other. Grommets on the curtains are meant to evoke bubbles. What a fun way for the entire crew to get some shut eye.

How fun! Create a giant seascape in a kids’ play area. They’ll love adding details in chalk to create their own panorama over and over. Pottery Barn’s modular chalk decals allow you to attach multiples so that the mural can be as large as you want it to be.
Every nautical kid’s room needs a boat bed with navy & white accents, right? The little nautical accessories really pull the theme together.
