Today’s furniture items for kids are fun, ingenious, and made of top-quality materials. As a parent, it is important to make sensible investments. Because when they’re small kids are constantly running around their rooms, good-quality furniture may prevent an accident from happening.

Now leaving aside the practical side of kids’ furniture, this season there are certain styles we would like to focus on. Here are 10 trending ideas you’ll adore:

1.    Eco-friendly Furniture

Today’s kids furniture items are designed to be environmentally-friendly. This way, parents are confident that their little ones are healthy. Organic furniture has gone mainstream, and a lot of couples are opting for non-toxic items to decorate the rooms of their future babies. Some parents prefer green furniture because they also want their little ones to grow up caring for the environment and no damaging it. The trend began a few years ago, and it is currently en vogue.

2.    Vivid Colors

Just because you have a boy this doesn’t mean you can’t make his room look bright and colorful. Once upon a time, girls had pink rooms whereas boys had blue. That trend is overrated. Right now, the bolder the colors the better. Shades of yellow, green, purple, and orange are now quite common for both boys and girls. Regardless of the color combo you go for, it is important that you stick to warm nuances. Paining old furniture to make it look new is another great idea of bringing a space to life.

3.    Interesting Graphics

Adding bold colors is not the only way you can decorate a kid’s room. Graphics and patterns can have a striking effect too. Patterned upholstery and beautifully designed beds with printed patterns can add a lot of effect. Stripes and polka dots will never fade away if we’re talking about a child’s room, which has to be fun and playful.

4.    Black & White Furniture

Although this year is all about color, a new trend is materializing – black & white furniture. It is because many parents want their kids to have edgy, chic rooms, and not necessarily childish-looking. Designing a room in black & white, and including pops of color will instantly appeal to the sense of your toddler.

5.    Storage On Display

Kids are messy, there’s no secret about that, and their rooms often looks like a war zone. For this reason, it is important to have lots of storage spaces in their rooms. Hidden storage spaces are even better. There could be chairs with underneath compartments, tables with drawers, and so on. This way it will be easier for parents to clean up and make their kids’ room look spotless in a matter of minutes.

6.    Handmade Furniture

Launched because of the recession, handmade furniture has become a real trend. It is no longer a cheaper option of decorating a home, but a smart way of adorning your residence with unique décor items. Handmade metal furniture in particular, has an urban appeal that might suit perfect into the room of your son. Boys like cars and superheroes; it’s a lot easier to decorate their rooms with metal-inspired furniture.

7.    Desks For Kids

There are so many ideas you can use to make your child’s desk look fun and enjoyable. First of all, make sure the desk you’ve selected is colorful and practical. Confirm it is made from a durable material (hardwood for instance), and pair it with an equally attractive ergonomic chair.

8.    Personalized Furniture Items

Kids love to own things with their names imprinted. You can do the same with furniture. For example, you can order a personalized bed for your princess. Have it painted in pastel pink, and engrave her name on the upper side of the bed. Use a glittery color and your daughter will love it.

9.    Funky Chairs

When we say “funky” we refer to those chairs that look both funny and stylish. Since we’re talking about kids, you can even try out a DIY project for a chair, and craft a special piece of furniture for your child.

10.    Hammocks and Swings

Believe it or not, one of the hottest trends in home décor for kids is the inclusion of a swing or hammock is their room. Can you imagine the shock they’ll have the moment they discover that a comfortable swing is hanging by the ceiling? As a parent, it’s nice to decorate your toddler’s room with taste. This way, they’ll enjoy it more and with a bit of luck, they won’t destroy it for the sake of having it intact for extended periods of time.
