1. Red

If you dare to be different, embrace red! From spicy chilli to deep cherry – red packs a punch! This bold and vibrant colour certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted, so we’d recommend some restraint when decorating the kid’s bedrooms.

Available in a choice of six colours, including race-car red, the Vipack New York Metal Kids Bed takes poll position in our roundup! Where this kid’s bed does the talking, there’s no need to go all out on the painting and decorating if you don’t want to. Simply style with bedding and lighting to compliment the vibrant bed frame.

The Trasman Podbed Gaming Highsleeper Bed didn’t get the subtle memo either! Contrasting the bed’s dark grey finish – the red gaming desk, shelves and ladder serve up a confident colour combo. Finished off with built-in LED lighting, this colour trio will satisfy your red-loving tween or teen!

By only using accents of red throughout the kid’s bedrooms you’ll still be bringing the WOW factor. Whether you’ve opted for a red kid’s bed, an accent wall, a floor rug, curtains or bedding – this bright shade is a winner!

2. Pink

Looking for something lighter? The kids might prefer pink! This sweet shade ranges from bubblegum to candyfloss, and with varying warm and cool tones, it’s such a versatile colour! Often associated with comfort, positivity and hope, we can’t think of a better match for your munchkins.

With so many different shades to choose from, it can sometimes be hard to colour-match if you’re trying to achieve an all-pink bedroom. So, when it comes to pink, pick the Vipack Kiddy collection! With kid’s beds, wall shelves, bedside tables and toy boxes all available in the same gentle pink colourway – you’ll have no problem creating a cohesive look. Also available in mint, white and grey – mix and match if you can’t decide on one colour!

Inspired by the seaside, the Vipack Casami Beach House Cupboard proves pink isn’t just for princesses! Behind the panelled door, kids will find four compartments for all of their foldables and favourite soft toys. Follow the nautical theme and style the rest of their pink bedroom with driftwood artwork, surfboards and ice-lolly bedding!

3. Yellow

Bring the sunshine into the kid’s bedrooms with yellow! Sunflowers, daffodils, pineapples, honey, banana – so many amazing things are lucky enough to be this happy and warm colour, and now your home can be too!

Perfect as a crafting corner in their bedroom or playroom, the two-tone Vox Tuli Kids Stackable Desk and Stools come in a selection of pastel colours – including yellow! With inbuilt shelves for their art materials, pens and paper to live in; when they’re not busy making, this set neatly tucks away and doubles as a bookcase. And as they’re made with an easy-clean laminated finish, it’s easier to keep their yellow furniture looking as good as new! Happy days!

Love yellow? Say hello to the Cotton Ball Lights Pacific LED String Lights! Handmade using natural materials, simply plug them into a USB outlet, powerbank or adapter and kids can enjoy their favourite colours from day to night. Filling their bedroom with a gorgeous, warming glow at bedtime, they’re a great alternative to a nightlight. With other sets to choose from, there’s a colourful Cotton Ball Lights set for every kid – whether they’re team yellow or not!

4. Green

Green symbolises nature, growth and life! It’s also the colour of one of our favourite Marvel Superheroes – and even he chose green over grey (if you know you know)! Not always associated with hulking giants, this energy-giving colour has been known to reduce stress and promote balance, according to colour psychologists, making it another great choice for kids and their bedrooms!

Starting you off with something subdued, the Vox Tuli Bookcase & Toy Storage comes in white or pastel green. Fill this charming unit with their library of books and create a quiet corner for reading and relaxing. Including customisable labels, you could organise their stories alphabetically or by colour! With four open sections – even little tots can reach their favourites and enjoy independent play.

Made to order, kids can choose from 26 colour options to completely personalise the Mathy by Bols Treehouse Cabin Bed with Slide & Platform! If they’re game for green – choose from apple green, jungle green, light green or moss grey… we promise it’s still green! Including a wooden canopy, window, ladder, underbed hideout and a slide, this bed was made for rest AND play! Style with the Snurk Dino Bronto Bedding Set to create a roar-some treehouse! Switch up their accessories and decor to create a beach hut, castle or woodland cottage instead and follow your chosen theme.

5. Blue

Even on the greyest day, if you pick blue for their bedroom it’ll be clear skies all year round! With this shade you can go as light or bright as you like, it’s great for nautical or beach themes, it goes with almost every other colour and no matter what they say, blue is for everyone!

Occasionally when kids are faced with bedroom sharing it can leave them feeling rather blue… but not if the Trasman Barca Bunk Bed has anything to say about it! Making space for the built-in wardrobe and drawers, the bed’s layered design and separate sections offer siblings their much-needed privacy. Pairing the Cacina wood effect with contemporary metal handles and colour block door fronts – complete the look with white, pink or blue options and use their bedding to showcase their individual styles.

To go along with their bunk bed, the Vox Stige Modular Bookcase in blue is a must-have! Designed with a space-saving system, create a modular storage wall with the matching drawers, cabinets and shelves. Not just for books, kids can display their toys, music, games and movies – for blue-lovers we’d recommend Rio, The Smurfs and Finding Nemo, but the choice is theirs!

6. Purple

If you’ve come this far, your kiddies must worship purple! Once considered the rarest colour, historically purple was reserved only for royalty. Befitting any wannabe princes or princesses, you could decorate their bedroom from floor to ceiling in this regal shade… or simply use their furniture and accessories to show off their passion for purple!

No kid’s bedroom/royal chamber is complete without a throne, or in this case an Extreme Lounging Mini B-Bag Outdoor Bean Bag in Berry. Filled with thousands of soft and squishy polybeads that mould to the body’s shape, it’s a great spot to unwind and gaze out at their purple-plastered pad!

Speaking of, can they really call their bedroom a purple paradise if the bed isn’t also this plucky colour? Lucky for them the Noah Kids High Sleeper Bed can be customised with a lilac headboard, footboard, shelf and steps. Can’t stay away from grey? Don’t worry the pull-out sofa bed comes in their favourite monochromatic shade too!
