The best bedroom furniture for creative kids

When designing a bedroom for a budding artist, choose furniture that gives them plenty of opportunities to let their imagination run free.

A room to make their own

Creative play allows kids to tap into their imagination and a world beyond rules and obligation. Turn the wallspace around their desk into a stimulating and inspiring view for your aspiring artist by displaying their paintings and works in progress. "I wanted to design a space where kids can enjoy their own creations", says interior designer Ellen Vidstige.

A flexible desk grows with your child and can be used in different ways, as a space for creativity, play and homework

Make space for creativity

Deep storage bins are great for keeping art supplies organised: markers, chalk, big sketch pads – everything needed to get creativity flowing. "I chose a mix of open and closed storage for this room, so there are places to tidy things away but also shelves and surfaces to display inspiration", says Ellen.

I used the bunk bed as a room divider to make a creative corner. If the room isn’t shared, the lower bunk makes a cosy hang out when you add cushions and throws like a sofa
