10 Cool Industrial Style Kid’s Bedroom Ideas May 17 2014, 1 Comment
When you think of industrial style bedrooms, a kid’s bedroom might not be the first thing that comes to mind. After all, kid’s bedroom decor is usually soft, colourful and warm whereas key words for industrial design are more often along the lines of rough, bare and worn. However, the truth is that this style needs warm elements to truly bring it to life and when it comes to kid’s bedroom decor, this is especially true. Add to that the imagination of a child and industrial design can get truly inspiring. Let us share with you some industrial kid’s bedroom ideas to show you what we mean.
This kid’s bedroom decor has got some quality industrial vintage pieces in it. The bed and end table / storage trunk have a cool, rough look because of the metal locks, bolts and hinges. However, the wood in these pieces makes them a bit more welcoming and friendly looking. Another thing is the colour. Dark army green is a popular industrial colour to choose, but by adding more bright green coloured furniture and accessories, this room better reflects the energy of the young kid that sleeps and plays in it – The apple green wardrobe gives off a real zing! The industrial high bay light adds to the finishing touch.
One of our favourite kid’s bedroom ideas, this one has cleverly incorporated the cool of industrial with the cool of little boy’s favourite games. A typographed army tent which can double as an Indian tipi, sports balls stowed away in metal baskets and various other toys housed in bolted open bookcases. We love it!
This industrial girl’s bedroom handles the contrast between cool & warm especially well. With soft pinks everywhere and lots of warm materials such as wood, fur, fabrics and woven baskets, this room is cool and cosy at the same time.
Industrial style bedrooms for kids can also be sleeker, as the example above shows. Teenagers might prefer a bit less colour, but the vintage industrial style will still fit. Items like the metal desk drawers, vintage storage trunk, whiteboard and black, metal pendant lights add a bunch of character to this bedroom that your teenagers will love.
Vintage Marquee Letters are an undeniably cool industrial accessory, and it’s also the perfect way to let kids personalise their bedroom decor. Paint it in their favourite colour and let them choose the words. The result will be all the better.
It’s the accessories that make this room special. The personality of a kid can be seen in their toys and prized possessions. A tennis racket on the wall (Grandpa’s?) a map on the other wall (Exploration? Inquisitive nature?), a red telephone... it all reflects the small occupier.
Children’s industrial style bedrooms are great when they have a theme. In the image above, the child is the star of his very own circus. Lots of colour meets worn industrial furniture and bare light bulbs. Imagination has all the space it needs here.
This industrial kid’s bedroom decor gets its warmth from fabrics. Lots and lots of fabrics. Colourful bunches of pillows (perfect for playing), throws and rugs – this room is soft to the touch. Meanwhile, the caged desk lamp, letters and wood-and-metal side table amongst others lend the room its industrial charm.
Lastly, this more neutral coloured industrial kid’s bedroom decor still has a warm feeling to it because of the wooden floor. Stuffed toys and fluffy furs make sure this place feels friendly and welcoming to its inhabitant.
