A child’s room should be a space is which they blossom and grow up having beautiful memories. With this in mind we ensure that the rooms we design are very safe, fun and adventurous for children. The spaces have interesting features like rock climbing walls, swings etc which make them like play areas along with sleeping and study zones. Colours used here also reflect the character of the kids and the finishes used are extremely maintenance free so there is no damage caused. Floorings are usually soft laminated wooden floors or hardwood floors so that it is a protective layer to ensure no injuries. Study areas are practically designed keeping in mind a growing child’s needs and requirements for storage with a big desk and yet making it practical and aesthetically pleasing. We also make sure that the room has a lot of bookcase space and corners for a child to record his memories and notes.

The kid’s bedroom is a white base with a pale yellow niche which holds the toys and complements the wall with hot air balloon graphics. The blackboard painted elephant makes an excellent surface for kids to scribble on. The refurbished bunk bed forms a mini-house for the kids which they relate to as their own little haven.

The child himself inspired us for his room. He was an only child and usually had weekend sleepover nights with friends and cousins. The space is designed to accommodate three children. The lower part of the bunk bed has a trolley which doubles up into a double bed and the upper level sleeps one. The stairs leading to the level above are used as a storage for his toys. There is a study space that seats two. The child’s love for animals is depicted in the form of framed illustrations on the study wall. The customised curtains were made to merge into the perfect white and blue concept of the house. The bay window is the child’s most favourite space as that’s where he sits gazing at the stars and reading a book.
