"Storage like drawers and shelves may be incorporated [as part of] the bed or installed on the wall to save space. These should keep the room organized and minor accidents will be avoided such as tripping on the stuff lying on the floor. The use of bright colors as accents will make the room look happy and painting a mural will also add depth to the room and make it look creative. — Interior designer Joy Jabile-Ejercito
"Unless you plan to redecorate every year, avoid baby-ish details. Rooms can be decorated with accessories, which are easy and inexpensive to change later on—to create a nursery atmosphere." — Interior designer Van Acuña-Solana

On choosing furniture
“Children are prone to accidents because their motor skills are still developing. To make the play room more kid-friendly, round sharp edges, use non-toxic paint, and avoid hazardous materials and toys.” — Interior designer Hannah Acab-Faustino
On choosing color schemes
"In selecting colors for children's bedrooms, it is wise to use shades that have longevity. Instead of using pastel pink for a girl's room, why not use hot pink as accent wall, or grayish blue instead of powder blue in a boy's room? This way, you won't have to do major paint renovation as the kids grow up." — Interior designer Van Acuña-Solana
