Furniture for Kids Room & Decor

DIY Kids' Room: Poster on Wood

A room isn't a room without some furniture pieces. What's great about choosing furniture for a kids room is that because kiddies are small, you can choose small pieces of furniture and therefore save space!

Since this is your kid's room, create a collage of wall art that they've colored or drawn for you or decorate the walls with they're favorite movie posters. If your child is the next Pablo Picasso, having a chalkboard wall is a must-have in the playroom.

Rather than having your children plop down on the floor, have them snuggle up with their favorite book in a DIY bean bag chair.

Tip: Keep the funriture to a minimal.
