Here are some of the biggest kids’ bedroom trends that are likely to take off in 2018 to give you some guidance when it comes to crafting the perfect space for your child. 

Think about themes

Choosing a specific theme can be a great way to bring some coherence to the style of a room and tie every little piece of design together. In 2018, theming a design of a bedroom is expected to be a key trend. Talk to your child and pick a theme that they really love and that is likely to stand the test of time for a few years as they get older. Timeless themes to consider include dinosaurs, forests, ships, the sea, space and wildlife!

Colour themes

Your choice of colour in a room is thought to influence moods and feelings, so choosing the right hue for the purpose of a room is very important— especially when it comes to your child’s bedroom!

Warmer colours are thought to encourage activity and cooler colours like blues and purples are said to promote a feeling of relaxation. You don’t have to go the whole hog and paint an entire room in a bright colour either— you could create a simple feature wall which would only involve you painting one.

Consider bold, graphic wallpapers

Bold graphic prints are one of 2018’s hottest trends when it comes to decorating children’s bedrooms. With practically any design now able to be printed on wallpaper, the options for graphics in a room are practically endless. These types of design can help to add a vintage feel to a room—especially if you choose the right graphics. Easily removable wallpaper is also available to buy, so any decoration can be replaced without the walls getting damaged in the process.


If you want to stay away from too bright and bold colours, pastels are a good option to choose if you want to transform the style of your child’s room in a subtle way. Pastels can change the look and feel of the room in a quiet way: perfect if your child isn’t comfortable with too much change.


Get your child to contribute with small, personal features to the design of the room as a great way to make the space theirs. From small features like adding alphabet woodblocks to a wall spelling out their name, to larger features, like creating a themed-reading den or study space, creating a space that reflects your little one’s personality is a great way to make them feel special.
