5 quirky and cool children’s bedroom furniture pieces

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. Some of these furniture ideas are perfect for creating a nursery space if you’re sticking to a gender-neutral theme, or even just to add some substance to what can become a chaotic part of the home. 

Read on for some stylish children’s furniture suggestions…

1. Read the room

Make your little ones books easy to access to make storytime simpler with these simple shelves (from £124, Tidy Books). They’re perfect for encouraging reading from an early age. The simple white design means it fits into any space and can be upcycled and altered as children get older.

2. Style spotter

Encourage your child to get involved with picking their outfits by swapping the boring wardrobe for this lovely white wooden clothes rail (£49, JoJo Maman Bébé). 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.

3. Superior set

Furniture that is multipurpose is a godsend when it comes to children’s bedrooms, especially if you’re short on space. This fabulous furniture set (£750, Little Folks Furniture) combines a top bunk bed with a chest of drawers to store your little ones outfits! The bed also comes with a desk on wheels (ideal for moving around if you want to put it into another room), and a chair.
