As children get older, they want their bedroom to grow with them, leaving behind the little girl or boy designs that may have included cute little animal decals on the walls, super hero or princess bed sheets and comforters, walls that were blue or pink, etc.
So it is now out with the old and in with modern kids furniture that will make their room a place where they will want to bring their friends for study time and sleepovers.
In the plans to turn their bedroom into a modern bedroom you want to incorporate into the plans dressers that have geometric shapes, colors that are neutral, wooden beds with simple plain colored sheets and blankets or bed spreads, and curtains that match or coordinate. You want to make sure that you are keeping the plans simple with unnecessary clutter and very few knick-knacks sitting around.
This is a very important part in being able to get the room to become a modern bedroom. You should choose colors like taupe, whites, beige, or grays but no vibrant reds, greens, or cool shades of blue for the walls. This may sound drab but when you coordinate it with modern kids furniture in shades of browns, mauves, white, and tan you will be surprised at how cool it will look.
Using these shades together will also give the bedroom a serene look and make it a great place to sleep. If your child wants to add just a dash of color allow them to do it in the form of a few accessories like extra throw pillows on the bed or a throw rug on the floor.
Their bed should be a simple plain wooden bed made of teak, oak, cherry, walnut, etc. Use plain colored sheets that coordinate with the color theme of the walls or you could use a sheet to add a splash of color to the room such as a yellow sheet if you are doing the room in shades of brown.
In a modern bedroom you should not use dust ruffles or a comforter but use a bedspread instead
Dresser / Chest of Drawers
Most boys would prefer to have a chest of drawers when choosing their furniture for their bedroom while girls would prefer a dresser with a geometric shaped mirror above it.
To give it a more modern look you should make sure that the furniture has some type of geometric shape to give the bedroom a more completed look and to stay within the theme. For example, you could get a chest of drawers that is oval shaped or maybe a rounded dresser that looks like a tower.
You could also include a book case or shelves with an unusual shape.
To keep the room looking uncluttered, this is all that you would need to buy. Remember that when purchasing accessories choose just a few. You can even choose something with color to make it the focal point of the room.
