Do not overthink and overdesign, but make sure it is functional for a child. And what does it really need? Keep storage containers low and easy to access. And give everything a dedicated spot to make it easy to get tidied up.

Invest in multifunctional furniture

Every little thing can make a big difference in a small room. And some pieces of furniture can actually do several jobs. A desk can be a bedside table and a stool can include a storage function for example.
A bunk bed is the best space saving thing there is for shared rooms. But, not only. It can also be very useful for small rooms in general. Underneath you can create a desk area or play corner, creating more free space for the rest of the room. Elevated beds with built-in storage are excellent as well. Or how about a set of String furniture that you design in any way you want and can give you a set of shelves and a desk all in one?

Make the most of the height of the room

All you want in a kids room is to have some floor space so the little ones can play. Keeping your room simple, investing in multifunctional furniture are two important steps. Next: Go up!
Put shelves all the way up the wall, there is always something you do not need every day and can be stored on the top.
Again, keep things simple and do not overload your shelves. Or the room will look cramped and unorganised, not something your child will feel inspired in.
