RL Picks: Top 8 Kiddie Rooms for September

Make the perfect space for your little ones with these neat ideas


Kiddie rooms should be charming and whimsical spaces that bring joy into the hearts of the little occupants. It must be versatile enough to serve as the perfect place for playing, studying, resting, and everything in between.

If you are planning to create, renovate, or simply add a few touches to your children’s space, here are our favorite kiddie rooms for the month:

Choose customized pieces For the room of her two boys, this homeowner chose a bed design from the Internet. She had it custom-made at Progetti, a home furniture store. Because the bed is customized, it can even be dismantled into two separate beds once the boys are too old for a bunk bed. Another good thing about this particular piece is that another bed can be pulled out from underneath.

Work with a theme In nine-year-old Lance’s room, interior designer Michelle Dumlao-Pastoral focused on a Titanic theme. Michelle chose bedsheets with nautical touches and boat-printed curtains complete with anchor details. A wooden chest from a flea market serves as a bedside table.
A painting-like image of the Titanic on a tarpaulin hangs over a custom-made toy chest that looks like a boat.

Be playful In this home designed by interior designer Wilan Dayrit, the rooms of the two kids are both bright and vibrant.

The design for the youngest child’s bedroom was influenced by Cars, the animated Disney movie. Walls are painted yellow and red with black and white racing details. The highlight of the room is the race car-inspired bed.
The bedroom of the 12-year-old daughter has lime green walls and baby pink curtains. A lavender headboard anchors the bed, which rests on a white frame. A white-and-lavender bedside table is a fitting final touch.

Think “small” Since it took years for the Padilla couple to become parents, they were more than prepared for the gift of children. The husband explains that his wife really wanted to have kids so she kept on buying toys. Her most interesting finds are the small-scale furniture pieces from Ikea. These miniature tables, chairs, stools, and benches add to the appeal of the space.
Another fun addition to the area is the whitewashed cabinet with number-shaped knobs on the drawers.

Invest in storage
In this family home, the bedrooms of the two boys are filled with the same elements—pullout trundle beds, built-in shelves, and blackboards they can doodle on. Décor in both rooms are kept at a minimum, with only their toys and books adding color and character to the neat spaces. Wall-mounted shelves keep books, toys, and personal belongings organized.

Choose personalized touches
Since the Cruz family are proud owners of dogs, cats, birds, and fishes, they wanted their love for animals to be reflected in their space. In line with this, the homeowner asked her brother to paint a giraffe and an elephant on the walls of her son Enrique’s nursery. The images were copied from the bedsheets used for the baby’s crib.
