Gone are the days of plastic furniture in exclusively primary colours being the only choice for children’s bedrooms. Thankfully, there’s now an abundance of more quirky and uniquely designed pieces that boast a more neutral-toned finish.
If mini plastic chairs give you the chills, then these alternative children’s bedroom furniture ideas are sure to be right up your street.
With its sleek design, mature inky blue finish, and satin lacquered oak top, this sturdy toy box would make a sophisticated storage choice for a child’s bedroom. There’s plenty of space for storing toys and games, and we love that the chunky lid has been equipped with strong, slow-close hinges in order to avoid trapped fingers. A versatile piece, it also doubles as a handy bench!

Encourage your child to get involved with picking their outfits by swapping the boring wardrobe for this lovely white wooden clothes rail. As well as hanging space, there’s storage room at the bottom for blankets and toys. We also love the idea of using this rail to display all your child’s fancy dress outfits, as having them visible will encourage more imaginative play.

Crafted from natural pinewood and MDF, this set includes a smaller and larger side table. Use the larger one as a bedside table for placing a clock and a water beaker, and the smaller as a mini drawing or play table. With their white, cloud-shaped tabletops, they’re sure to encourage a playful atmosphere.
