On afternoons and weekends, the multipurpose room is occupied by both boys and their playmates. Since young boys are known for rambunctiousness and running around endlessly, they're kept at bay safely thanks to a Dutch door installed at the room's entry. To keep the kids contained inside, the bottom half of the door usually remains closed while the top half remains open, allowing parents to keep an eye on the kids from a distance.
On the other side of the upstairs space, another bedroom serves as the children's space. A blue and white rug grounds the room while complementing the bedding and artwork. A cast-iron stove climbs up the wall bringing an industrial flair to the space.
"We wanted something that would be fun for the kids and spark their imagination," said interior designer Carrie Maniaci about this birch forest bedroom. Custom murals and materials make this room come alive while the custom built bunk bed really sets this space apart.
Consider desks or bookcases that hang on the wall, which allow for more flexibility in your space planning. Take advantage of vertical wall space—floating shelves don’t require a lot of room and offer an additional place to corral clutter.
This small white desk is the ideal work space for a 10-year-old's bedroom. The inspiration started with the colors blue and purple, adding them in to look nice and girly without being too overwhelming.
Piles of small toys and picture books can overtake a child’s bedroom quickly, so it helps to create a home for these items. Free up floor space by using hanging wall organizers with pockets to sort and store thin and small-sized toys. Group the pieces according to type, so finding a favorite toy becomes an easier process.

Basic white shelves are a perfect platform for showcasing a beautifully curated collection of toys, art, even a houseplant. The fact that enough space is left between items to really see them keeps the wall from feeling cluttered.
