Designing Children’s Rooms That Children Love
Nurture out-of-the-box thinking
One of the things Jenn love most about kids is their lack of filters and constraints. So she likes to nurture out-of-the-box thinking in children’s spaces. She encourages this with unexpected details and places to let their imaginations go wild. These details can be a curved floor transition, a hanging chair, or hidden tunnels and hiding places.

Jenn’s favorite children’s room quote is, “Play is the highest form of research,” by Albert Einstein.

Working with multiple Children when Designing Children’s Rooms
I asked Jenn, her design approach when working with families with younger children and multiple children. Jenn’s approach depends on how many kids and their ages. For example, if she is designing for two young kids, it can be hard. They want different things, but it needs to feel equal, and sometimes they fight. So she makes sure to give them equal but different options on concept pages to choose from – usually two choices each. Differences between rooms are something like the same duvet cover, but different color.
Colorful, imaginative, and unquestionably cool
Need a little help designing your kid’s room?
Designing your children’s rooms will be rewarding when you see their ear to ear smile, but they can also overwhelming. You may want to consider hiring a designer to help with the significant and even the small details (these are the details that make a room look pulled together and finished). Our designers have experience in working out tricky space plans, they know where to shop for unique things, and that can save you a lot of time and energy. A professional designer will cost some money, but it will be well worth it.
