For many parents, bedtime can be a battle, involving long negotiations with the little ones. You can make bedtime a little easier by decorating the kids’ bedrooms so they would love to climb into them anytime.Plan your kids’ bedrooms around their personalities so that bedtime can be easy and fun.

As kids get older, the bedroom is usually the only real space that they can call their own – it’s a place for them to feel at ease and to be themselves. So why not skip the cookie-cutter kids’ furniture and go for something that reflects their interests and personalities instead?

Here are some creatively decorated bedrooms for five different child personality types. See if you can spot your little one among them.


The future F1 driver

Toy cars are a staple in any child’s toy box from a young age. When that love turns into something much bigger, it’s time to consider a car-themed bedroom for your future race car driver.

Make bedtime awesome with a bed designed just like a race car, complete with a “trophy” cupboard for those toy cars amassed over the years. With these beautifully painted bodies and life-like wheels, climbing into bed will surely be irresistible to car-loving kids – and it could get their engines going each morning.

Parenting pro tip

Car-themed beds are great for teaching kids the concept of ownership. Just like how daddy and mummy send the family car for regular washes, it is important for your child to take care of his “car”, too. Encourage him to make his bed every morning and keep his space neat and tidy.


The fairytale princess

Always found with her nose in a fairytale story book, or watching Frozen for the umpteenth time, your child is always absorbed in a fantasy magical kingdom of enchantments, sparkly gowns and true love.

Let that imagination run wild with this carriage bed set-up that also makes the perfect stage for bedtime stories. Complete with pink wheels and a crown to top, it’s a unique princess bed fit for royalty.

Teach your little princess about the courtly values of hospitality and grace by having her show visitors around the house and take care of their needs. For special occasions, Harvey Norman Millenia Walk Flagship Superstore has age-appropriate kitchen appliances and tableware so she can also host a royal tea party.


The little fire fighter

The sirens as the big trucks zoom by on the road always hold a fascination for kids, and may even spark ambitions from a young age.

Let them live the dream with a great fire fighter bed frame that will have them dreaming about bravely scaling the ladder, putting out fires and saving lives. It even comes complete with a gas station which doubles up as a storage space.

Parenting pro tip

Nurture your child’s kind heart and upright spirit by teaching him about the sacrifices that fire fighters make to help others. Suggest that they contribute to the household with simple chores, such as helping mummy hang the laundry or helping daddy with the vacuuming, to inculcate a sense of duty.


The world traveller

Watch out Big Ben, these kids are coming through! If your child seems to have inherited your wanderlust and simply can’t get enough of your travel snaps, a travel-inspired bedroom just might tide her through till the next holiday.

Dream of adventures in another land with these London-themed bedrooms. The cute double decker means siblings can have twice as much fun – in the driver’s seat one night, and up top as a passenger the next. There’s even a telephone booth cupboard for hours of make-believe fun.

Why not equip your travel-loving child with a camera the next time you go on a holiday? A hardy action camera will survive falls and capture most of the action in the frame. After the trip, visit Harvey Norman Millenia Walk Flagship Superstore’sPhotoCentre where you can personalise and print out the photos at fun photo kiosks, and create a scrapbook of your holiday memories.


The sophisticated kid

If your child is an old soul who’s more interested in Sherlock Holmes than garish cartoon characters, or devotes her time to honing her musical, artistic or dance skills, then it’s time to get one of these stylish beds.

These bedrooms have a simpler but ultimately timeless design, which means they can last into your child’s teenage years. The perfect place for your little ballerina, detective, writer or musician to pursue those evolving interests, it will grow together with your child.


       

Parenting pro tip

A neutral bedroom is the perfect canvas for children to unleash their creativity and decorate according to personal interests. You can take the opportunity to teach them basic financial management skills by having them propose a “project budget” and sticking to it while you shop for materials and room accessories together.

Children are not all one and the same. So, rather than take a one-size-fits-all approach, the children’s furniture at Harvey Norman Millenia Walk Flagship Superstore is thoughtfully designed for kids of all ages and personalities. Workmanship, safety and quality are also paramount – you won’t find sharp edges or parts that fall apart after a bit of roughhousing. Only the best for your little one!
