We don’t just want to create a room for the now, we want a room he can enjoy and use for years to come Browsing through Pinterest, Etsy and online stores we have come across some truly awesome and inspiration products to turn his room in to a room fit for a sassy and growing four year old boy. I want to share with you my ideas in the hope my space saving and decorating tips will provide you and your family the inspiration you need to create a truly fantastic space for your little monster.
ShelvingWith Christmas and his Birthday fast approaching we would love to get hold of shelving that can be used for both holding his Lego figures and essentials; money boxes, picture frames and artwork. We don't really have the space to add in extra storage so adding stuffing to the walls is a must do.
The image of the right provided me with some ideas on how we would like something that versatile. We could potentially look at up-cycling an old wardrobe by cutting one of the sides in to three halves and placing them on the walls. With each panel having different length of shelving, thus creating a considerable amount of room for the lego and clutter!

In a bid to free-up more floor space we have been looking at children's mid sleeper cabin beds. We think that by getting rid of his current unused bunk-bed, we can gain that much needed space for storage boxes or even a little desk where he can work on practising his spelling and drawing. The mid-sleep above retails for £180, a reasonable price for a fun, safe and comfortable place for your kids to sleep. Especially when you think that my three year old could have that bed for at least another five years!
You could always look at hammocks reviews to find a suitable one for your kid as another space saving option.

I really like the idea of up-cycling old lockers to use as storage. I came across the above image on Ideal Home's website and i the array of bright shades, such storage would add a unique stamp on the space. In reality finding and fixing one-up would be tough, but i think it would be worth it spending around £100+ on it as it a feature piece that can be used for years to come.
Thanks for reading folks, if you have had any design inspiration for your little ones bedroom please do share with me your thoughts and pictures.
