2021 is the Perfect Year for a Kid's Bedroom Makeover

There’s no place like home. And during 2021, that’s never been more accurate.

As your kids are spending more time around the house, it’s the perfect time to make the most out of their environment.

And whether your kids are studying or kicking back in front of their favourite show (don’t get me started on how Netflix has dominated their lives during lockdown!), their bedroom is the place to be right now. With that in mind, here’s why I think there’s never been a better time to roll up your sleeves and tackle that bedroom makeover:

You have time to decorate

First things first, you actually have the time to decorate now. Usually, life gets in the way of big decoration projects. Between work, school, spending time with friends, and going on holiday, it can be hard to find the time.

But when we’re currently told to stay at home, we suddenly have plenty of time to get to grips with bedroom makeovers. And with life set to return to normal in June, now’s the time to get busy and make the most out of our empty calendars (apart from the odd Zoom quiz!).

There’s more time to play

The past year hasn’t been easy on kids. As we’ve all had to stay at home, kids have missed out on seeing their friends at school and enjoying those much-needed play dates.

So when it’s time to stop studying from home, you’ll want to make sure they have a fun environment to enjoy their spare time. And while there’s no substitute for hanging out with friends, our fun furniture options can help your kids make the most out of their time indoors.

Take the Explorer Treehouse Cabin Bed. With an imaginative design, your little ones can turn bedtime into an adventure. Whether they’re playing house or hosting a teddy bear’s picnic, this bed can make life at home a little more fun.

And when you’re spending more time indoors, you’ll no doubt have heaps of toys and books to enjoy those weekends at home. The Kiddy Wooden Kids Toy Box is ideal for keeping toys nice and tidy – and it’ll look great while you’re at it, too!

Space to study from home

While studying from home is hopefully behind us now, we’ve all seen the need for a suitable remote learning environment. And as we don’t always know what’s around the corner, it’s good to be prepared for the worst.

Homeschooling hasn’t been easy for kids or parents, but a proper desk and enough space to spread out can make the world of difference. Even if your kids are back at school, you’ll appreciate a good learning space more than ever – so you’ll want to create a decent spot for any future homework or revision sessions at home.

Plus, if you’re planning to work from home for the foreseeable future, you won’t want to share the kitchen table or take turns using your desk with your kids.

Take a look at the Vox Stige Small Desk with 2 Drawers. With plenty of space for drawing or a computer, it’s the ideal spot for kids to tackle their schoolwork. And with roomy drawers and the option to attach storage cubes or hanging boxes on either side, you can keep any school clutter neatly tidied away.

Make more space for hobbies

While your kids are spending their weekends at home, they might have picked up a few hobbies along the way. Whether they’ve taken up dancing on TikTok or painting pictures of rainbows, they’ll probably need some more bedroom space to enjoy their newly gained interests.

To create more bedroom space, a high sleeper bed will save the day. Neatly combining a desk space, storage shelves, and a wardrobe, the Parisot Higher Kids High Sleeper Bed is the ultimate space-saver. It means you can free up plenty of floor space – for whatever your kids enjoy!

Plus, the Trasman Barca Bunk Bed with Wardrobe is perfect for saving space if you’re trying to please a pair of siblings. With plenty of wardrobe space and shelving, this bed frees up heaps of space – especially if it’s replacing two single beds.

Enjoy the little things

Over the past year, we’ve all started to appreciate the smaller things in life. With holidays and theme parks off the cards for now, we’re more likely to settle down to a good film or enjoy a book.

If your kids’ book or music collection has expanded over lockdown, take a look at the stunning Vox Concept Narrow Bookcase. It offers heaps of space to store all kinds of knick knacks – and the simple colour palette will add a touch of Scandinanvian style to any bedroom.

It’s good to be flexible

If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that we sometimes need to adapt around not-so-ideal circumstances. Whether we’re told to work remotely or stick to socialising online, we’ve all had to adapt our home slightly to adjust.

That’s where adaptable and modular furniture comes in handy. The Alfie Modular Mid Sleeper Bed can work around you and your needs. With its modular design, you can choose to create a lower single bed or a space-saving mid sleeper.

So if your kids suddenly need more space in their bedroom for a desk or more space to play, you can simply adjust this bed around their needs.

Make the most out of home

With kids spending more time in their room than ever, it’s time to pay close attention to their surroundings. Your kids’ bedroom should be a place they can unwind, play, and relax – and since mental wellbeing is more important than ever in 2021, we all need to do what we can to enjoy our environment.

Plus, when your kids enjoy spending more time in their bedroom, it means you can enjoy a slice of peace and quiet too.

The Marlowe Mid Sleeper Bed is the perfect option for creating a space to chill out and have fun. As the hide-out area can be a cosy den or a fun play space with its peek-a-boo window, your kids will have no problem passing the time in their bedroom.
