Today is about designing asmall child’s bedroom, ages 2-10 years old. This can be very challenging whenyou consider the fast pace at which children are growing up these days.
All home design deals with form and function; your child's room will work  by creating a pleasing environment through interior space manipulation and planning.  
You reconfigure a space to make it more functional and more pleasing.

Whether the room is for a boy or a girl keep it simple, light, cheerful and kid friendly! 
Here are a few tips to keep things simple:

To help your kids stay organized,keep things at their height. Closet storage, benches and coat racks will all beused more often if kids can get to them easily.

Drawers are easy to reach.
Easy to reach desk and cupboard.

Kids are collectors, so makecollecting easy. Pictures and postcards don't always have to be stuck to acorkboard. Try hanging them from strings in front of a window or clipping themto a string along the wall to create an interactive border in a room. Or provide lots of shelving.

Cork boards do work!

Bedside lamp is important!

Be sure to include multiple kinds of lighting in a kid's room. Overall lighting is a necessity but so is a reading light. It may even help them find the bathroom in the middle of the night. 

 Remember that white is for any sex and any age. The accessories will make it age and gender appropriate.
