Five décor trends for kids’ bedrooms in 2023

Whether you have toddlers or teenagers, kids’ bedrooms go through a lot of wear and tear so it’s important to choose comfortable yet durable flooring which will last for years to come. 


Luckily, there’s never been more options available to suit every little personality – whether you’re looking for a stylish, easy to maintain space for your pre-teen, a cosy sanctuary for your little one to rest, or something a little more adventurous to encourage your child to play. 


Flooring Superstore’s Merchandising Manager, Craig Smith, shares his top tips on flooring trends for 2023 when it comes to your children’s bedrooms, which are sure to stand the test of time.

Calm and uncluttered

“Less is definitely more when it comes to creating a calm and peaceful space and kids’ bedrooms are no exception. 2023 will see minimal, organised and uncluttered environments be at the forefront when it comes to children’s bedroom design – providing ample floor space for play.


“For a durable choice and a clean aesthetic – look no further than wood effect flooring. Its hardwearing properties and wood-like finish makes it a perfect choice for parents looking for a stylish addition to their child’s bedroom, without the hefty price tag that hardwood can bring. Importantly, it’s easy to clean and scratch resistant – which is essential for little ones’ bedrooms. Experiment with rugs to add warmth and softness to the room.”

Bringing the outdoors in


“Jungle inspired bedrooms are a popular choice and continue to be on trend for 2023. A great gender-neutral option, kids are sure to be excited about a safari theme featuring all their favourite animals. Opt for bold animal prints and botanical patterns on soft furnishings and complement theses with natural colours on walls and floor for a truly botanical feel. For younger kids, choose carpet for extra cushioning and support for endless hours of crawling and playing on the floor.

Scandi Style


“Scandi inspired décor shows no signs of going anywhere and we’ll see the trend continue into children’s bedroom design. Think neutral colours, wicker storage and minimalist aesthetic for a truly Nordic feel. Be sure to inject some fun and personality into the space with animal inspired artwork or wall murals of their favourite characters.


“There’s no better way to tie together a minimalist Nordic space than with wood effect flooring. With advancements in technology, it’s often difficult to tell from the real thing yet you have added durability to future-proof your flooring for years to come.”

Cosy spaces


“Creating a cosy refuge for your child will be big in this year’s children’s bedroom design.

Think bunk beds, cosy reading nooks and bed canopies to create a peaceful haven from the world where kids can rest and recharge. And what’s better to tie a cosy space together than a luxurious deep pile carpet? As well as being comfortable underfoot it’s a great heat and sound insulator.

To be truly on trend look to the experts at Pantone who have named Viva Magenta – a crimson red – as the colour of the year 2023.”
