Easy bedroom updates for a growing family

New chapters in our lives, like becoming parents, can prompt changes in our homes. With a mix of modern comfort and vintage details, this bedroom offers ideas for growing families, and tips on how to organise your things around the little ones in your life. Consider no-drill solutions like a standing floor lamp as your reading light, cosy armchairs to cuddle with the kids, and more.

Opt for small, boxy drawers over long rectangular ones in a chest of drawers to help categorise your clothes. The shelves are not so deep, making it ideal for small spaces.

Don’t be afraid to mix modern and vintage styles together. White modern bases let standout patterns like a floral armchair shine.

When there isn’t a lot of space to go around, position a changing table by a corner. Keep shelves open and choose baskets or boxes with no lids so that diapers and clothes are easy to reach.
