A new kids’ room for a new school year
And then it happens! It’s time to start school. New routines, new friends – and maybe new interests. What better time is there to spend time with the kids renewing their room?
Pictured above is the canvas print Lightning is All Good from Disney’s new movie Cars 3.
Children’s room styling inspiration for school starters
Some kids may already know what they like and are not afraid to express their opinions. They found favourite film characters already at an early age – or perhaps they are all about animals or cars. Whatever they want in their room, we are sure they want it to be colourful! Buy furniture in neutral shades such as white and natural wood and let the kids choose wallpaper, canvas prints and interior decor that match their personalities and styles. If they like the movie Frozen, go for Frozen Fever – Elsa and Anna canvas print. If the Cars movies are their favourites, they are sure to love the Cars Cars Cars wallpaper.
Plan so the furniture and decor in a kids’ room will last a few years. If there is space, get an adult-sized bed now. Buy children’s lamps with shades that can be changed to other colours. Choose a height-adjustable desk.

DIY with wallpaper
At this age, many children start doing more advanced crafts, and being creative at school and with friends. So what can be better than crafts they can hang in their rooms – on the walls, shelves or above the bed. With wallpaper you can create pennants, hot air balloons, drapes or just small wallpaper shapes. Visit our blog for more wallpaper craft inspiration. Our top wallpaper craft tips are Owls Pattern by Mini Empire, Mountains by Fine Little Day and Happy Forest Pastel by Sne design.
Children’s heroes and favourite characters often take a lot of space in terms of wall decor and toys, so we recommend you create practical, stylish storage space. This simplifies picking up all the colourful things that tend to get spread all over the floor. Put shelves on the walls of your kids’ room with space for boxes and frames to fill with pictures and mementoes. Or why not frame a section of their favourite wallpaper?
Creative solutions for your children’s room
It’s no secret that kids love to move and climb. “No running indoors and no climbing on the furniture” is a rule we often hear. But what about a children’s furniture solution that encourages movement and play? A climbing wall, a rope ladder, an indoor swing or a homemade fort are all nice options. Take a look at our Pinterest board for more inspiring ideas and creative solutions for children’s rooms.
