On the search for your dream home or thinking about making improvements before you list? For families, kids’ rooms are just as important as the primary suite. If you’re into modern design, you know that kids’ rooms can be showstoppers and have a significant impact on the aesthetic of the property. If you’re in need of inspiration for a kids’ room to complement the home, here are a few of our favorite trends:
Monochrome Color Palette
Gone are the days of garish colors for kids’ rooms. Whether you’re designing a nursery for a newborn or creating a retreat for your teenager, a monochrome color palette may be a universally appealing choice. If your family is minimalistic, classic black and white monochrome is a theme that will grow with your child from infancy to the teen years. For those who prefer a colorful space, related hues will add some personality to the room without being overwhelming.
Accent walls are often seen in offices or gathering areas, but we’re beginning to see more of them in kids’ rooms. From a pop of color to out-of-the-box choices such as metallics or even natural material such as wood, an accent wall will look right at home in a modern kid’s room.
Kids (and their parents) will grow to appreciate ample storage space. Hideaway storage cubes built into the wall are becoming increasingly popular due to the streamlined look they provide. Built-in storage in the bathroom is also a utilitarian trend that increases the functionality of the room. For adolescents, intuitively designed shelving is especially important during this time of remote learning.
Whether you’re buying or selling in the luxury market, you’re sure to see luxurious bathrooms in kids’ rooms. Spa-like bathrooms are a luxury that children can enjoy from their earliest days–from garden tubs to beautifully tiled showers, these features enhance the ambiance for kids of all ages.
If you’re ready to start your search for the perfect home for your growing (or complete) family, the quality of kids’ rooms is certainly a factor that can influence your decision. Whether you have your heart set on some or all of the features mentioned here, we can help you find a hidden gem. If you’re planning to sell but need to make improvements, the addition of one or more of these trends may help you increase the appeal of secondary rooms.
