The best viral decorating tricks to make a children’s room look bigger

Decorate the children’s room It is usually one of the biggest headaches for families when their children arrive. Normally, it is a smaller bedroom than the main one, however, the amount of things we need to put in it is inversely proportional to the size of our children. Bed, storage for (many) toys, cabinets, book shelves, study and games area, changing table if they are small … And things get even more complicated when two or more children have to share a room. Of course, as we never tire of repeating in this section, size does not matter (too much) if we have good tricks at hand to make our rooms appear larger as if by magic (and without renovations).


As almost always, color and lighting will be key to create spaciousness in space. The light tones (white and beige) combined with vibrant notes in the favorite color of your children (it is not necessary to fall into the typical topic of pink or blue if you do not want, yellow and green also work like a charm) following the The 60-30-10 rule will be great allies, and you can let your imagination fly with wallpapers with children’s motifs of their favorite theme. The natural wood will provide warmth and, in this case, in addition, the sources of natural light will be key not only to generate that multiplier effect of meters, but to improve its performance in the hours of study and favor their rest rhythms.


The choice of furniture It is crucial in the decoration of a children’s bedroom: in addition to being safe (they do not have small removable parts, they do not have risks of falling …), they must be functional and versatile. The beds in height (whether they are bunk beds or raised beds) allow modulating and multiplying the useful meters of the room, as well as the trundle and folding beds. In addition, we will use all the walls we can to gain vertical storage with shelves and if we choose convertible storage furniture we will get a two in one: we can store toys or clothes while, for example, we gain seating areas to play, read or study. It is essential that there are shelves or boxes where all the toys or books are neatly arranged: in addition to the order that gives a greater sense of spaciousness, having your things always in their place is a basic learning for children from an early age.

Study, play and rest areas must be well defined, nothing about the little ones doing their homework sitting on the bed or on the same rug where they later play. In these cases, we can use lighting and colors to separate areas in an ‘open concept’ style without the need for partitions or separating elements that dwarf the room.


Last, and most difficult, are shared rooms in rooms you have to enter everything multiplied by two (in the best of cases) … but normally, without double the square footage. In this case, the ideas that we have posted in this viral deco video on Instagram seem unbeatable.
