Lead architect Patrick Ahearn designed the kids’ bathroom across the hallway from the kids’ bedroom for privacy and convenience. Cheerful décor continues throughout the bathroom through duplicated patterns and colors.
This kids' bedroom features a design with plenty of room to grow, featuring a light gray color palette, elegant wallpaper ceiling and dark hardwood floors with comfy, white rug. The room is also spacious enough for lots of stuffed animals and a play area with tent.
Children are encouraged to draw on the walls in this bedroom space, thanks to the easy-to-clean chalkboard painted wall. Red stripes frame the chalkboard space, matching the energy of the room's young occupants and relating the feature to the boldly colored furnishings in the space.
The play space in this kid's room, part of the second-floor addition, was expanded by going up! A loft was created underneath the dormer window with the potential to be just about anything (daydreaming nook, pirate ship, secret hideout). A barn door hides an expansive closet.
This work space area offers a place for the Fuchs children to do their homework on the floating desk suspended by steel cables. Before the renovation, this area was the kitchen, as seen on Fixer Upper.
Colorful artwork and accessories pop in this all-white kids room. The built-in desk provides a place for two to sit and do homework. Above, modular shelving holds books, personal treasures and a small TV.
Stop sifting through clothing that no longer fits. Professional organizer Darla DeMorrow suggests keeping a box labeled “too small” for items your child has outgrown. When you have time, donate or pass down.
Designer Justine Sterling transformed a low-ceiling basement space in a 1920s Colonial to create a studio. It’s a walkout basement with two windows providing decent light, but it was very ugly with exposed pipes, a horrible acoustic tile ceiling and old sticky vinyl flooring. At roughly 450 square feet, there was a good amount of space to create a project room for the children. The room is now a lively children's workspace.
Bring new life to your old household items. Amanda of A Lovely Place to Land transformed an old wooden thread rack into a clever storage solution for kids' shoes. Display the rack on a dresser or mount it on a wall to save space. Arrange shoes by type and color to make it easy to find what you need.
The center of this great room is designated as a holiday gathering spot for kids, complete with snacks and interactive crafting ideas. With kids occupied, parents can enjoy a more formal dining experience in the adjacent room.
