Modern Design Tips for a Kid’s Bedroom That Doubles as the Guest Bedroom

If you have a small home and your child’s bedroom is also used as a guest room then you might want to consider some of these helpful, modern design tips to make every guest and your child comfortable.

Consider getting a furniture set that features a neutral look, not too “kid like”, but not too over the top sophisticated either. Choose a neutral colored bedding set and wall color to create a room that adults and kids will feel comfortable in. Then let your child get some funky, fun accessories that express his/her personality and spread those accent pieces around the room. Accessory suggestions include: decorative, colorful throw pillows, throw blankets, lamps, plus colorful fabric that can go over a valance to add splashes of color above the windows. Your child might also want to get some stuffed animals or photos of friends and put them on shelves and dresser tops.

Make sure that whatever accessories you get can be easily stored away when guests come to town. This way, when grandma and grandpa visit, your child can put the funky things in the closet and the grandparents have a comfortable place to sleep for the week without feeling like they’re intruders in their grandchild’s bedroom.

Below are four beautiful kids furniture sets that any guest would like and any child can accessorize to create the perfect kid’s room and guest room all in one. You’ll find images of the following four kids bedroom collections below: Z Bedroom Collection by Powell, Versa Collection and Cakao Collection by South Shore and the Basecamp Collection by Young America.

South Shore Furniture is a Favorite

South Shore Furniture is a popular brand found in households all across America. They’re known for their innovative furniture designs and quality construction. This is furniture that can remain in your home for decades of use.

Below you’ll find a collective review for three of South Shore’s popular collections, so you can hear what customers are saying about this trendy, long-lasting furniture to see if it’s right for your home.

South Shore Summer Breeze

South Shore’s Summer Breeze Collection is a classic, modern favorite that customers love. The shipment arrives quickly and the new owners are pleased at how heavy and sturdy the Mates Bed is. Assembly is another plus; one couple said their 6yr old put together the drawers of the Double Dresser nearly by himself and that it took two adults just 2 hours to put together 2 Mates Beds.

Customers are happy the bed works for young children’s “big kid” beds, as well as, a comfortable piece of furniture for one couple’s 200lb teen boy! The 5 Drawer Chest even passed the durability test of a 6yr old rowdy child who climbs and jumps all over his new furniture and everything is still in good shape. The design looks great and we hear the Denim Blue finish in particular really brings life to a bedroom.

South Shore Popular

The simple, traditional South Shore Popular Collection fits with any child’s bedroom set-up or design. Customers have been very happy with the Bookcase Headboard and how great it looks with the child’s bed. One parent said it suits her child’s needs perfectly and that the piece of furniture was easy to assemble, not many tools were needed. The Loft Combo Storage Unit was put together easily by a single mom who used this piece behind her child’s twin bed instead of a headboard and was very pleased with the final look. A customer bought the Night Table for a 3 year-old child’s room saying it was extremely easy to put together, feels nice and sturdy and looks great with the rest of the set.

South Shore Little Treasures

South Shore’s Little Treasures Collection has a classic design that’s perfect for young kids. Customers are always telling us how heavy and well packed the Mates Bed Box comes and that it’s very easy to assemble. Once the bed is set up in the child’s bedroom, parents love how much extra storage the easy-gliding drawers within the bed frame provide and the design ensures kids can’t just shove everything under their bed! The 5 Drawer Chest is a favorite because it’s easy to set up and the nice design looks like realistic Country Pine in kid’s rooms. The Double Dresser is another option for storing cloths and customers say this piece of furniture is beautiful and very easy to put together. One customer said that although it recommends two people for assembly, they were able to set it up themselves.

Room Magic is Award Winning Kids Furniture

Room Magic is a kids’ furniture collection with superior design quality targeted specifically for young children. The American Association of Furniture Designers (AAFD) honored this furniture line by giving it the coveted Pinnacle Award. Now that’s impressive!

Room Magic was created by Karen Andrea of Santa Barbara, CA. With a graphic design background, Andrea started designing furniture simply because her 5yr old daughter needed a bedroom set and she was unable to find any children’s bedroom furniture sets that matched the personality of a child: bold, fun, bright and full of imagination. She didn’t want a furniture collection that just looked like pint-sized adult bedroom furniture with common color choices and classic designs.

Andrea took matters into her own hands using the creative ideas of her daughter as her muse and began developing furniture that would infuse a child’s bedroom with fun and magic. The result is a Matisse inspired furniture line with lively, playful “cut outs” of kissing fish, whimsical lizards, tea cups and more, all of which are bright in color and finished naturally in birch wood.
In total, Room Magic offers seven different kids’ bedroom furniture collections, each with a unique theme for boys and girls. Each collection includes furniture, accessories and bedding, so a child’s bedroom can easily have a designer look.

Check out some of these fun and fabulous bedroom furniture sets below and visit to check out the entire Room Magic Furniture line today!
