I love decorating our kid’s bedrooms and I love bedrooms that look like playrooms, because the kids love spending time in that sort of space. ¬†I have found a surefire way to keep them cleaned (the kids are great at cleaning up with this rule in place), so now I feel like I could decorate how ever I want and it will stay neat, for the most part.

bedrooms that look like playrooms

The bedrooms that I am looking at all allow for great toy-storage ideas.

1- This first bedroom, found on Flickr, is beautiful!  I love the ideas of putting the bunk beds in the wall like that.  I watched my dad and my husband build a closet where there was nothing (they put up a wall, etc…) so I think building a wall around bunk-beds would be relatively easy.)


2. This next bedroom would be such a beautiful nursery.   It reminds me of the nursery on Father of the Bride II.  (I love those movies!)

3. If your child is old enough to¬†play with magnets, I love the idea of having a giant magnet board in their bedroom (you can check it out on Joanna’s home Tour). ¬†This¬†would be really fun for a Kindergartener working on new sight words, too!

4. The idea of putting a swing into a bedroom or playroom is really fun!  (You will want to supervise them when they are using it).

5. ¬†This idea from¬†¬†would be perfect for our son’s bedroom! ¬†We currently have all of his cars in a shoebox (like this one) but this¬†would be really fun¬†because he loves to organize them!
ps- this 20 pack of cars would be a great start!  (those are affiliate links)

6. I love the idea from House of Turquoise¬†of having their bed raised and in a little “house”. ¬†I think that this would be so much fun for any child! ¬† Plus, this really doubles the space because now you can have a book area or drawing area right under¬†the bed.

7. I love HGTV’s lego wall in a bedroom idea. ¬†It could not be more fun! ¬† You could even do this on a small wall or a space beside their¬†toy box. ¬† I just love the idea of getting create whenever you want!

8. This is a great idea, too, from HGTV. ¬† Building a dresser under a bed. ¬† I really love the look of it, too (it looks like a Princess’s bed to me!)¬†

9. This idea from Dollar Store Mom was just too easy not to share.  Turn a garbage can into a storage spot.  Just use a little chalk-board paint and label it.  Hang it on the wall!

10. Use wood crates¬†to make¬†your own bookshelf like Crazy Little Projects. ¬†This is perfect for a reading area in a child’s room. ¬†Easy enough and cheap enough- just paint them and screw them together! ¬† You can get three right here on Amazon.

I hope that you liked those!   I had fun putting them on here for you!   Here are a few more posts that you might find helpful:
