Whether they are tiny babies or towering teens, you can make a compact bedroom work for a child, providing you plan it right. And these five ways to make a child's bedroom more spacious will ensure that you really make the most of your kid's bedroom.
1. Make the most of the space under the bed
To make a child's bedroom feel larger and function better, opt for a bed with storage drawers, shelves or a guest bed beneath it so that there is no dead space under the bed. This funky four-poster bed from Cuckooland is available with a storage drawer and is height adjustable, so it will literally grow with your child.
2. Include a desk with storage
Whether your child is a toddler or a teen, a table top in the room will be invaluable at every stage in their childhood. It can first serve as a nappy changing station and later on become a desk and maybe even a dressing table, just make sure it comes with storage. Lift up the top of this Nidi Secret Desk and reveal a host of storage compartments and even a mirror – it looks great open or closed.

3. Utilise every inch of space
When space is tight, you need to make the most of every little bit of it. Alcoves, window sills, nooks and crannies, make it all work hard. Here the dead space above the bed has been filled with modular shelving, which is fixed to the wall. And, being able to see a little under the bedside table and bed as here, also helps to make a child's bedroom feel larger.
4. Work those walls
You might not have a great deal of wall area to play with in your child's bedroom, but you want to make sure that what you do have, that isn't covered by a bed or furniture, is made to work hard. To make a child's bedroom feel larger, use the walls for storage hooks and shelving. This Umbra concealed books shelf makes books appear to float along a wall, injecting a little piece of fun into any scheme.
5. Keep the floor clear
While you can cram the walls and sides of your child's bedroom with storage, a bed and a desk, keep the central floor area clear. Not only will this ensure that the room looks and feels more spacious, it will also give little kids room for imaginary play with their toys. While older kids can have a space to hang out with friends.
