Decorating a girl’s room for your daughter can be quite a challenge. Are you lacking inspiration? Don’t worry, we will help you with our handy tips, fun girls’ room ideas and the best inspiration examples!
A girl’s bedroom is her refuge from the outside world as she grows up. That is why it is important to take your time when decorating a girl’s room. Above all, involve your daughter in the entire process – it is her room after all. In this case, you are the interior designer and stylist, while your daughter is your customer. Ask what she likes and likes and what she would really like to have in her own room. Based on that, you can get started with the design of the room.
A girl’s room should be a flexible space, meeting their evolving needs from childhood to the teenage years. That is why it can be wise to choose expensive furniture that can grow with your daughter. Think of the bed, the wardrobe or the chest of drawers. In addition, there are also elements that you can change over time, such as the wall color, the curtains and a carpet. Below are some fun ideas for different types of girls – from princesses who love pink to adventurous tomboys.
1. Monochrome color palette
A monochrome color palette is a fun, but also a safe choice. It’s an easy way to create a neutral girl’s room without sticking to the stereotypical white or pink girl’s room. Alternate wall colors, such as in the room below, where most of the walls are white, combined with a cool black wall with large golden dots. A few nice accessories such as the lamp made of a branch, the dream catcher and the wooden ladder give the girl’s room a playful touch. These are all accessories that you can easily replace.
2. Wall color
Prefer a little more color? The wall is the way to add more color to a girl’s room. Many girls are fans of pink. Don’t let this put you off. Pink walls can also be super beautiful. And in addition there are many other beautiful wall colors that are suitable for different types of girls. How about a green wall , an ocher wall, or for example a more neutral taupe or gray wall? In the cool cute girls’ room below, the walls are painted soft pink. Click here to view more photos.
3. Paint paneling
As we have indicated above, you do not have to choose one wall color. You can also combine multiple colors. Not only by painting one wall in one color and the other wall in the other color. Painting a wall paneling is also a great idea in a girl’s room. Choose a color that your daughter likes very much and combine it with a neutral color for the top of the wall, for example.
Do you want to make it something exciting? Wallpaper is always a good idea for a nursery as well. The range of nice nursery wallpaper is huge nowadays. For example, choose photo wallpaper if you want to decorate the girl’s room in a specific theme, or go for pattern wallpaper if you want it more neutral. Ferm Living and Cole & Son are popular brands that have super nice nursery wallpaper.
5. Reading area
Some children like to read, others less. But almost all children enjoy having their parents read a nice book before going to sleep. That is why it is nice to create a reading corner in the girl’s room. Create a cozy and comfortable place with mattresses and pillows on the floor. And mount a bookshelf on the wall, where all books can be neatly stored. This looks super cozy, right ?!
6. Mosquito net
Do you suffer from mosquitoes in the house? Then a mosquito net is an absolute must-have in the girl’s room. Very sad when your daughter is covered in mosquito bites. But even if you do not suffer from mosquitoes, a mosquito net can be a lot of fun. Hang it over the reading corner or over the bed. The mosquito net immediately gives the room a fairytale atmosphere.
7. Colorful wardrobe
The wardrobe is a permanent piece of furniture in every children’s room. In addition to the functional aspect, the wardrobe also has an important decorative aspect. For example, it is a great way to add color to the room. For example, have you opted for a neutral base, with white or gray walls with a wooden floor? Then choose a wardrobe with a beautiful color. Do you already have a wardrobe? Then you can always easily paint it in a different color.
What we said above about the wardrobe also applies to a rug. A carpet is nice to play on for the smaller girls. If you have a hard floor, such as a wooden floor, with a rug you ensure that you also have a place in the room that feels nice and soft and warm. And it is also a nice way to give the girl’s room more color. In the nursery below they have opted for a super nice round rug from OYOY.
Mobiles are not only fun for babies, a mobile is also great for older children’s rooms. You hang it above a piece of furniture, such as the bed or desk. But it is also nice to simply hang the mobile in the corner of the girl’s room. Mobiles are available in many different shapes and sizes. Below you see a super nice girl’s room with a mobile with the solar system. Loving it!
10. Hooks on the wall
Most items of clothing can be stored in the wardrobe, but it is also nice to hang some items outside the wardrobe. Mount a stylish wooden coat rack on the wall or opt for nice hooks on the wall. Hang that beautiful princess dress there that should be seen. That is also a form of wall decoration in the girl’s room. Hanging multiple items of clothing? Then go for a larger clothes rack.
11. Vintage nursery furniture
Vintage children’s room furniture is timeless. A vintage bed, wardrobe or chest of drawers are fun for the nursery and can grow with you until your daughter becomes a teenager. The downside is that it can sometimes be challenging to find them. New ‘vintage’ furniture looks too fake, and the real vintage furniture is not available everywhere. Look mainly in vintage stores, flea markets, or check out Marktplaats.
12. Loft bed
The biggest advantage of a loft bed is that you can use the space under the bed very well. For example, you can set up a reading corner, a play corner, a playhouse, or as a guest bed for when friends are staying over. Below you can see Luna’s cool girl’s room, who opted for a cool blue wall. The loft bed is from IKEA, which is pimped at the bottom with super nice ocher yellow curtains.
