Mid-Century Kid's Room Design Ideas

Mid-century modern kids rooms are undeniably stylish and fun! Mid-century style has an inherently youthful vibe and bright color palette, so it’s a style that lends itself well to a kid’s bedroom! A mid-century bedroom design is a perfect “neutral” style for a kids room. While it’s certainly a distinct interior design style, it’s modern and minimalistic aesthetic makes it a perfect backdrop for kids styles and personalities of all kinds! Use mid-century modern furniture as a base for the space, then let your child take it where they’d like it—whether that’s with a bright and vibrant color palette, something more neutral and refined, or even a moody and bold black and white palette. You can make this style come to life in so many different ways! Rugs, bedding, and artwork—along with wall color—are great ways to bring color into the space. A shag or flat-woven rug, ideally with a pop of color and pattern are perfect for mid-century kids bedroom designs. Geometric designs are great in mid-century spaces, but an oriental rug design can add warmth and a bit of an eclectic vibe! The furniture you choose for your kid’s bedroom is a major way to set the style tone. Unadorned furniture with clean lines is key to creating the mid-century look in your kid’s bedroom. Platform beds with tapered legs are a perfect, simple option. But for something a little more fancy or refined, upgrade to an upholstered bed. For nightstands, dressers, and desks, keep things simple. Furniture with simple frames and tapered legs will keep the room looking modern and more open and airy. Aside from the potential of an upholstered bed, mid-century kid’s bedroom designs look great with wooden furniture. Pieces made with walnut, acorn, teak, or birch are ideal for mid-century spaces. However, you could also go for wood in a painted white or a shiny white lacquer for something brighter.  The great thing about using mid-century modern furniture in your kid’s bedroom is that it’s a furniture style that will grow up with them. The clean and timeless aesthetic of these furniture designs will look just as great in their first apartment as in their childhood bedroom. So, you’ll really get a lot of life and use out of this furniture style.  Mid-century modern is also a style that mixes well with other design styles. So, as your child’s style evolves, their room can evolve with them, without needing to completely change the furniture and contents of their room. Mid-century style mixes really well with minimalist, rustic, glam, and industrial styles—but can truly complement and work with pretty much any design style. Once you have the furniture in place, add some modern art pieces and personal touches with objects that your child loves. Because your child’s room should feel personalized and special, so that it’s a place they love to spend time in. And using mid-century modern style as the foundation will truly make your kid’s bedroom a stunning place to be!  Want some mid-century kid’s bedroom design inspiration?
