While designing a girl’s bedroom, satisfying the adult’s preferences and the kid’s aesthetics can become a challenging task. Don’t fret! We are here to help you design a girl’s room that is pretty and practical for years to come. Girls room ideas, similar to a boy’s bedrooms, should have a design that can be updated easily. 

If you have a little girl running about, you can plan out a design that is around a theme like her favourite cartoon character or movie. Storytelling with interiors will make the space even more enjoyable for them. 

While pink is a favourite among girls, design a room that goes beyond colours without compromising on that fairytale feel. Take a look at how you can incorporate elements that are timeless for a girl of any age.

#1: The right bed and bedding

Incorporate their favourite colour with bedding and pillows

The real key to a long lasting bedroom design is the bed. Once your kid has outgrown a crib, you can opt for a full size bed to avoid making another purchase a few years later. However, you don’t have to compromise on the decor with this.

We recommend letting your kid select the colours for their bed sheet and pillows as it makes them feel like a part of the process while you remain in control of the material and price.

For these girls room ideas, the bedroom features a bed and set of nightstands that are similar to the ones in the master bedroom. Moreover, the bedding is pastel pink with black and white pillows.

#2: Attention to detail with lighting

Opt for lighting in solid, classic colours

Apart from the overhead lighting in your kid’s room, make sure to install night lights near their bed and desk lamps at their study units. We suggest selecting these in colours like black or white that can go with any bedroom theme. However, you can always mix and match to create a variety of lighting options.

#3: Opt for multipurpose units

Growing up entails prioritising your space according to your needs. However, as a parent you can opt for furniture that can be used in a number of ways. Here, we have designed this room that is perfect for a teenage girl. It has a study cum vanity unit. Moreover, it bridges two wardrobes and flauntsin-built bookshelves that can also be used as storage cubbies later on and drawers with a jewelry display on one end. This minimal yet functional design will let your daughter use the space any way she likes.

#4: Functional and stylish wardrobe designs

These two-toned wardrobes are the perfect storage solution for all ages

Children are usually less concerned with storage spaces in their room. So it’s up to you to find storage solutions that are functional yet pleasing to look at. Generally, you would not need plenty of storage to start off with. Maybe a set of chest of drawers or a single cabinet will do the trick. However, you can consider installing a full wall wardrobe that can not only store baby clothes but also, toys for the time being. This also works out well as she grows up too!

#6: Wallpaper and themes

Picking out colours for your kid’s bedroom can be a tricky task. If your kid is not old enough to have a preference we suggest incorporating a variety of colours in a subtle pastel shade for girls room ideas. For practicality reasons, you can also pick white so that you find it easier to paint once a colour becomes favourable a few years down the line.

#5: Pick out decor together

Decor is a great way to make children add their mark to the room. You and your little one can pick out curtains, wall art, soft furnishings, planters, chairs etc. However, if you are looking for inspiration, think subtle and dainty trimmings on curtains, tassels on soft furnishing, elegant patterns on storage units. You can also furnish the room with a full length mirror, a laundry basket, seating and more for a girls room.
