Creative ideas for kids room and furniture

A place where your budding artist can freely explore their creativity and make their imagination run free.

A room kids can call their own

Indulging in creative hobbies allows your kid to tap into their imagination and a world beyond rules and obligations. Displaying their artwork and paintings on the wall space around their desk will inspire them. The view might help stimulate their creative process as well. ‘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

Clear the area and let the creativity flow

Deep storage boxes and bins are the perfect way to keep their art supplies organised. Markers, chalk, big sketch pads - everything is close at hand when an idea strikes. ‘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
