A child’s room should be designed with several goals in mind: to create a peaceful and relaxing space for sleep, a quiet space for studying and learning, a fun-filled area for playing and bonding where the room is shared. But, on top of being functional, it should also be magical – a little wonderland that kids can escape to and feel that the space is truly theirs. Finding ideas to create a delightful room for your children can be fun, but it can also be an uphill task. We have rounded up 5 inspirational ideas to help you create an enchanting space for your children. 

  1. Jungle-inspired wall murals/wallpaper

Jungle-inspired themes are a perfect choice to bring out the inner explorers in your children. You can opt for wall murals with trees and your children’s favorite wild characters. Think of patterns such as trees with monkeys swinging, trailing leaves, smiling lions and giraffes in beautiful colors. If you would rather stay away from paintwork, an interesting alternative is going for a wallpaper. The good thing is that it doesn’t matter the gender of your little explorer. This theme is perfect for a girl or boy’s room.

  1. Cozy nooks

A little hideaway for your child can be a welcome addition in his or her room. No child wouldn’t love the idea of escaping from the world into a cozy space with a good book or just snoozing away. You can incorporate a cozy nook in the form of a teepee. Choose exciting and fun fabrics with beautiful colors and patterns to turn their imagination wild. You can also add a canopy at the corner. Likewise, choosing interesting colors and patterns is your best bet. If you are short of space to designate a corner for a nook, there are creative ways to consider. For instance, you can loft the bed and utilize the space underneath for a cozy nook. Whichever way you choose, make it cozy with beautiful cushions and other soft furnishings.

  1. Universe-inspired ceiling

Incorporating universe-inspired décor into a child’s room is a surefire way to transform the room into a dreamy and fantasy escape. Let your child feel like he or she has been transported into a magnificent and magical wonderland with a cloudy ceiling. You can also opt to paint the sky complete with stars and the moon on the ceiling and top part of the walls. Paint the walls blue, choose sky-themed bed covering and cushions to complete the look.

  1. Make it playful

On the days that you want your little ones to stay indoors especially when the weather outside isn’t conducive for playing outside, having a room that they can enjoy playing and spending time in is a plus for you. Turn your child’s room into a playfield complete with a swing. You can have it attached to a loft bed. Place some soft furnishing down there to give him or her a soft landing. Besides playing, a slide is a great way to encourage your child to get out of bed on the days that they don’t feel like it. Another great idea for play is a swing. Just be sure to have it firmly fixed for safety.

  1. Make it a healthy haven

Make your children’s room an enchanting escape for play, learning and sleep that is healthy at the same time. For instance, you can play with color to create an interesting environment that can captivate your child’s imagination. But you also want to make sure that the colors ignite the right mood for your child, which is important for mental health. The same can be done with lighting. While at it, take the health of your child a notch higher by installing a water filter system in the room. This ensures that he or she has clean water to drink after an hour of play or study in the room.


We all crave for a space that we can own, a space that can allow us to just escape and enjoy time alone or with friends. Turning your children’s bedroom into a childlike wonderland is the perfect idea to give your children such a space. If you have always wanted to give your children such a gift, now you have the perfect ideas to try. Just remember to consider their input to really make the space their own.
