Speaking of…under the bed storage such as rollaway drawers is always helpful in creating more space and can hold seasonal or limited use items. Storage chests with cushions can be used as a seat to a play table as well as conceal a mountain of toys. A wall unit with drawers can pull double duty as a dresser and desk. Shelving is super convenient for toy organization as it doesn’t take up a lot of space and can be placed above dressers, desks, even above the door for hardly used items. Similarly, placing a bookshelf at the foot of the bed doesn’t take up valuable wall space and may even give you another surface near the bed for a lamp or nighttime book.
Here’s another fine example of fold-away kitchen storage. It takes the design above and expands upon it. You have space for a small microwave, but there is also space for other appliances like the toaster. There are even outlets to plug it all in. And the shelving is high enough to get in and use the toaster right in that space. As a result, rather than serving as pure storage, this space also makes a highly functional workstation.
The exciting part of creating a super fun bedroom for your young brood is accessorizing and customizing design elements to match their budding personalities. Select design elements that make the room feel like it belongs to both of them. Personalize accessories throughout the room such as wall art or coat hooks. Marquee lights with their names or first initial add a pop of energy and excitement to any space. Likewise, subtly add gender specific themes in one or two accessories, but keep them color coordinated. For example when accessorizing with red, try a throw pillow with a red fire engine for him, and a pillow with a red flower or heart for her. Storage that is complementary to the design scheme but specific for each gender (think charcoal for boys and yellow for girls) can also seamlessly pull a room together.
One of the best options for small spaces is the media torso, sometimes also referred to as an armoire. These are similar to TV wall units in the sense that they’re cabinets with storage and space for the TV. In the case of an armoire, the TV is usually concealed interior a cabinet with doors. This type of wall storage component is slender and takes up small floor space. Its construction is organized vertically rather than horizontally.
Another option is a TV stand or console. They’re simpler versions of entertainment focus and they’re designed to hold the TV and to offer some extra storage space for things like media components books or games. Contemporary TV stands can sometimes be a bit simplified, offering the option to mount the TV on the wall behind them rather than placing it on the cabinet.
