10 Coolest Kids Rooms


Creating kid spaces that encourage play, keep things organized for kids and parents, provide a space to sleep and still have a sense of fun and whimsy is not an easy task. Here are ten spaces that got it right in their own ways. If I were a kid, they’re exactly what I would want.

    This room by Cortney Novogratz made a small space work for triplets.

    This bedroom is full of toys buy still feels organized thanks for the open shelving and bright space.

    Suspending three beds for their three sons was both a practical and fun solution for this shared bedroom.

    The indoor jungle gym in this room (see those rings on the far left of the picture?) would be the perfect solution to a long winter and cabin fever.

    While custom built-ins are expensive, this room makes me realize how much space they create.

  • Rainbows & White 6 of 10
    Rainbows & White
    This should give any renter with a no-painting policy hope - it's full of so much color. In fact I'm not sure it would work with walls of any other color.

    Mary's Room
    This alcove bed is exactly what I would have wanted when I was little. It would be the perfect place to read a book into the night, chat with friends, or lock out the world. (Actually, it would still be the perfect place to do those things!)

    Vertical Space
    I love the height of this small space, and I'm dying to know where the stairs go. Wouldn't it be fun to have a secret loft to play in?

    Would you like sleeping in a window seat alcove? It's so sunny and bright, but I wonder if it would by too drafty or public or cramped?

  • Kid-Sized 10 of 10
    I like the scale of this room - everything is seems so accessible for kids. But do you think you'd get enough use out of kid-sized furniture to make it worth buying?
