Creating the perfect toddler bedroom is always a balance between what works for the parent’s aesthetic and what’s fun and interesting for the toddler. Additional considerations can have to do with where things can progress as the toddler grows into a bigger kid, when staying in the same space is on the agenda. That being said, the process of decorating and designing a toddler bedroom can be really fun because it’s a great excuse to get creative and even be a bit whimsy at times. The following examples show a variety of fun toddler bedrooms ideas that we love. Some of them offer more functional considerations, while some of them are just for fun. Most of them do a great job at blending the two, offering up some toddler bedroom ideas that could work for any family.
1. The sweet pink bedroom
Of course going with a color theme is one option when it comes to decorating out a toddler’s bedroom, and choosing a sweet pink color is always an appealing option. This room is a great example of how using the right shades of pink allows the color to be repeated over and over without being overwhelming in the space. From the bed to the curtains to the wall, this room is full of the sweet color.
2. A Jungle Cruise Toddler Room
Heading into themed territory, here we have a fun example of creating a toddler bedroom in the theme of a jungle cruise. The real selling point here is the bed created in the shape of a jeep. The other supporting details are more subtle but no less important. The real plant and the picture of the plant on the wall perfectly balance the space and would even make sense in an adult’s bedroom.
3. Fit for Royalty Toddler Room
In another example of a themed toddler bedroom, we’ve got this royal castle room. Again there’s just one main element leading the theme, and in this case, it’s the castle mural on the wall. (Which could easily be painted over if the toddler ever outgrows the theme.) The rest of the bedroom supports the theme in color scheme but is otherwise a normal bedroom.
4. The Bed With a Slide
This toddler bedroom mixes function with fun by adding a slide onto a raised toddler bed. This bed being raised as it is offers the added bonus of having an area underneath the bed to be used for storage, and probably from time to time for play as well! Even the framed wall art in this room is sticking with the playful theme, so there’s no question that fun is to be had in this toddler bedroom.
5. The Grey Themed Bedroom
In another example of one color being chosen to decorate a toddler bedroom, here we have a grey version. The grey is a more subtle choice than something like pink, but still serves to create a theme. It’s easy to see how this bedroom could transition out of a toddler room and into an adult room with relative ease.
6. A Playful Pink Teepee
Adding a spot in a toddler bedroom that’s specifically made for fun is always a good idea. It can offer a toddler some ownership of the space as something beyond a bedroom and encourage them to start spending some independent play time. This sweet pink teepee as inviting as can be, and has a full book shelf right next to it which encourages reading time.
7. A Subtle Character Theme
This toddler bedroom is a great example of how you can go with a character theme without going over the top. Without the recognizable bat symbol one might not even realize that this is a character themed room it all, it more so just appears to be a color theme. This is a great way to commit to a theme while having the flexibility to change it up when needed.
8. A Chic Way to Hang Toddler Art
Toddler art usually accompanies toddler life, and this is a great example of how to display some of that art without making a toddler bedroom look any less put together. The key is to make the display area subtle and flexible so that the art can be changed as necessary. This can bring a real sense of accomplishment into a toddler’s experience of their bedroom.
9. A Bed On the Floor That Still Looks Beautiful
For some family’s putting a toddler’s bed on the floor is necesary to help them grow into a big kid bed. This is a great example of how to do that while still having a bedroom look incredibly beautiful. This draped bed frame is even more beautiful than a lot of adult beds happen to be! The construction of this is also a lot easier than it looks.
10. A Corner For Lounging
This toddler bedroom has plenty of space for lounging and hanging out. A comfortable spot in the corner that’s easily accessible for a toddler can become the perfect reading nook, or even a great space to hang out when they have friends over. Between the comfy mattress and the fun teepee this room has plenty of space for hanging out.
11. Super Fun Wall Art
This toddler bedroom is all about the fun wall art. This is such a great idea when you want to go all out with the theme for a toddler’s bedroom but you don’t want to do anything too permanent. Painting the wall might seem like a big commitment, but it’s actually often easier to change up than getting different furniture.
12. A Simple Color Scheme
This toddler bedroom looks cozy and chic at the same time. Sticking with a color scheme that matches well but probably also matches the rest of the house well can be a great way to create an adult-friendly toddler bedroom. There are plenty of toys and playful elements without feeling any less mature than any other room in a home.
13. Repeating a Single Print
This toddler bedroom chose a fun print of dinosaurs that has been repeated over and over throughout the entire space. Since it’s the only pattern being used it doesn’t end up feeling over the top. This does require a bit of a commitment but when it works it can make the toddler’s room feel very unique and fun.
14. Toddler Bedroom for Two
Sometimes space is a consideration when creating the perfect toddler bedroom. This is an example of how a room can be set up with two toddler beds in one space, creating the perfect shared bedroom. Keeping the color scheme light allows for a more airy feeling in the room, which can help keep the space feeling open.
15. A Tea Party Play Area
This toddler bedroom is encouraging playtime through its sweet tea party area. It’s interesting how dramatic of a result it can provide to simply drape something from the ceiling that gives off the feeling of privacy over the table. It sets it apart from the rest of the space without actually being a separate area.
16. The Creative Bookshelf
In a toddler’s bedroom, there’s a lot of room for whimsy and creative design. This creative bookshelf is a great example of that, both in how the shelves are used to hold a bunch of books and with all the dinosaur stickers as decoration around them.
17. Using Crates as Shelves
One way to make a toddler bedroom feel fun as you’re building on a budget is to use crates as sheleves in the room. They are easy to come by and can be used to hold books, toys, or anything else that doesn’t belong on the floor. You can basically use as many crates as you’d like on a wall without overdoing it in the space.
18. Make the Bedspread the Focal Point
This toddler bedroom is quite basic other than the fun themed bedspread. This allows for a lot of whimsy in the space, while still being something that’s incredible easy to swap out if their tastes change. The cloud design make the bed looks extremely comfortable and could help with bedtime at the end of the day.
19. Make the Space Teachable
This is a great example of how to create some fun wall decoration while still keeping a toddler bedroom teachable for a growing toddler mind. Learning the countries will come naturally when these fun elements are looked at day after day. It also provides a lot of opportunity for discussion between parent and child at bedtime or any other time of day.
20. The Animal Dreams Theme
This toddler bedroom is themed in animal dreams, from the wall paper, to the curtain, and all the stuffed animals in the room. Going with an animal theme can actually be a good way to keep the color scheme in a toddler bedroom neutral and basic, despite being full of stuff. This room is calm and grounding for both toddler and parent alike.
