Redesigning Children’s Bedrooms

Having just purchased a new house for my family, one of the first areas we want to decorate are the bedrooms.  We need to think not only about paint colours, but how furniture will fit in the room, storage ideas and fun things to give the rooms personality and make the children feel like they have been designed just for them.

For my daughter we are looking for something a little bit more grown up and this bed with a large desk underneath is ideal for her to have somewhere to do all her drawing and homework.  With plenty of space on top, you can add little storage boxes filled with stationery ready for her to do her work. With drawers underneath also, this really does add storage value but gives you a large desk and bed in one.

Also when looking for girls bedroom ideas, I came across this pretty ceiling, dotted with little lights to give them room a twinkling effect.  I think my daughter would love this, especially in the evening when she reads before falling asleep.

Young boys just love a fun theme in their bedrooms, and my little boy would love this pirate style bed.  With so many fun elements making it look like a ship, he would also play in this during the day.  Having a den underneath is bed is something he’s been after for a while so we have already got him a cabin bed and are just deciding on how to decorate the rest of the room.

I do love this bunk style bed with a little house at the top and choice of ladder or slide to come down.  The bed underneath can either be used for a second child, or if you only have one child using this, it can be a spare bed for friends sleeping over and during the day it could be a chill out area that I know my two would love relaxing in and playing their little adventure games.

Kids love a fun bedroom and there are some fabulous ideas here to get inspiration from.  My children can’t wait to see their finished bedrooms and finally move into them, a great new space for them to explore and relax!

H&A Kid’s Toiletries Stocking Filler Ideas – Review

H&A are known for their vast array of kids character toiletries and Christmas time is no exception, with their vast array of children’s gift sets available in a number of different ranges.

We received a selection for Miss M and Mister B to enjoy this Christmas time.

H&AFor boys I love the Thomas set with sponge, fizzers, crayons and stencils.  My two love drawing on the bath so the Thomas stencils should be lots of fun to use and keep them entertained.

Mister B loves pirates, so Jake and the Neverland bath treats will always be a hit with him.  The Tub Tints telescope is a fun idea, coloured bath salts that change the colour of the water and once the telecscope shaped bottle is empty, rinse it out for pirate fun in the bath with your own pretend telescope!  There’s also fun to be had with the walk the plank set which includes a suction plank for the side of the bath that you can walk your fingers or any little bath characters you have down until they land in the water.

For girls the Juicy Lucy range is really pretty and perfectly aimed at the almost 7 year old Miss M.  The cupcake bath fizzers are sure to be a massive hit with Miss M who will adore using one of these in her bath.  The fairy wash bag contains lots of goodies such as bath puff, hair bobbles, bubble bath, shimmer lotion and bath confetti – plenty of exciting things for a young girl.  The final set with fizzers and a magic flannel is a perfect extra, all children love to watch their flannel grow in the bath, and something that can be used again and again.

I love all these ranges from H&A, the perfect bathtime gifts for children.  There are plenty of other character giftsets available such as Frozen, Me to You, Disney Princess and Doc McStuffins, so something to suit everyone.  What gift range will you buy for your child this year?

All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received the bath gift sets in order to write the review.
