When it comes to designing children’s rooms, we want to make sure they are perfect. While there are no hard and fast rules, there are a few elements you should include in order to create a child’s room that is both functional and pleasant! For junior room decor you should include elements that bring comfort, fun, memory making, and discovery. Here is a list of the objects that every Canadian kid´s room needs:

Cozy blanket or quilt:

No kid´s room is complete without a cozy blanket or quilt! This is the perfect spot for your little one to snuggle up with a good book or take a nap. A soft, cozy blanket will make any room feel more inviting and comfortable.

Something glowy:

A night light or twinkle lights provide comfort and warmth. They can also help your little one feel safe at night.

A place to hang out:

Every kid needs a place to call their own, whether it´s a teepee, fort, or playhouse. This is a great spot for them to use their imagination and have some fun. Also, for bigger kids is a great idea so they can use this place to read,  listen to music, or just relax.

Pics of them doing something they love, or with their family:

Pictures are a great way to personalize any room. They also help your child feel connected to their loved ones, even when they are not with them.

A place to put their stuff:

Kids have a lot of stuff! Make sure you have enough storage for all their clothes, toys, and books. This will help keep their room tidy and organized. It can be a book bin, a shelf, or even just a basket.

A clock:

Children can benefit from having a clock in their room, even if they are unable to tell the time. Clocks help establish, understand, and maintain a daily routine.

A place to sit:

Whether it´s a bean bag chair, rocking chair, or just a comfy spot on the floor, every child needs a place to relax. This is their space to unwind after a long day of playing.

An essential oil diffuser:

A diffuser is a great way to add a pleasant scent to your child’s room. It can also help them relax and feel calm. Choose an oil that is safe for children, such as lavender or chamomile.


Something to read before bedtime is a must in any kid´s room! Reading is a great way to wind down before bed, and it can also help your child develop their imagination. Children’s imaginations and intellects are stimulated by books. Make them available and set a good example, and you’ll have someone who reads for the rest of his or her life.

Bluetooth speaker for music, audiobooks, and podcasts:

Listening to audiobooks, music, and podcasts is a great way for kids to relax and unwind. It can also help them fall asleep. Choose a speaker that is durable and kid-friendly.

A wall for writing:

If you have a child with an artistic side or is constantly drawing on every wall they see with their favorite marker, this room would be ideal for them! You may assure there’s always a chalkboard paint area by dividing the entire wall into sections. It’s also a fantastic location to draw a masterpiece for your child if you’re an artist yourself.

Something Handmade: 

Handmade items in children’s rooms help create a sense of family and love. Items that the child has made him or herself are extra special and should not be forgotten.

A treasure box:

A treasure box is a great way to store all of your child’s special things. It can be a place for them to keep their favorite toy, a picture they drew, or even a shell they found on the beach. This is a great way to help them feel connected to their belongings and make sure they are safe.


As you can see, there are many different elements that you can include in your child’s room in order to make it both functional and comfortable. By including some or all of these items, you are sure to create a space that your child will love!
