As we welcome in another new year, The Kids Bedroom Company takes a look forward at trends which will be current for children’s bedrooms and playrooms in 2016.
One key trend which is going to carry on through to 2016 is the use of functional design – products that not only look great but are practical too. We will also see plenty of multi-functional design in both toys and furniture. In particular there will be a real emphasis on products which can grow with the child, whether that be a highchair that converts into a stool or a cot that becomes a desk; it seems we are moving away from a throw-away society and instead investing in quality items that are built to last.
"It seems we are moving away from a throw-away society and instead investing in quality items that are built to last." Katherine, The Kids Bedroom Company.
There will be a number of key trends and themes that will emerge in 2016, including a magical and enchanting trend, the use of stars and clouds in artwork and bedroom design and with a focus on dreams. The colour palette will encompass deep purples and blues and contrasting light pinks and greens.
Another key trend which will be prominent in 2016 is tropical jungle, plenty of elephants and lions will emerge and the use of strong patterns and contrasts with bright bold greens.
Natural fibres and materials are also key with visible use of wood, metal and natural fabrics being seen in a number of designs. Natural products are very tangible and encourage a child to explore their surroundings. The use of woodland animals has been very much on trend over the last few years and is set to continue into 2016 but in a more tactile, natural and rustic manor.
Whichever design you choose for your child, the important thing is that it is somewhere they can feel comfortable and relaxed. Creating a calming and tranquil haven for your child is important to help enable them to ‘hopefully’ get a good night’s sleep. However bright and vibrant a room may be during the day, when you draw the curtains and turn off the light at night, their room needs to encourage sleep and not stimulate the child. Using a nightlight or fairy lights is a nice way to create a gentle glow, something appealing to the child which acts as a comfort without being too bright and disrupting their sleep and looks great too!
