Children's rooms are the most colorful spaces in any home - colorful pictures and posters hang everywhere, shelves and cabinets are decorated and pasted, and the cuddly toys pile up in a corner. That's not bad, because a child's life should be colorful too. Here we reveal creative decoration ideas that your children can implement and make their own home to make their own four walls even more individual.

The room of a child is like a little kingdom unto itself - the little ones among us love to present, decorate and shape all their belongings. With these simple ideas, you can inspire your children even more - the great thing about it: you can do so much just yourself.

Carpets for the children's room

An important part of a children's room is the carpet. Of course, this is not really possible on a large scale. But choosing the right rug is crucial to the well-being of the child - whether it's a smaller runner or the complete rug. One thing is certain: it has to be robust, easy to clean and, of course, colorful. There are numerous designs and patterns: Animals, figures, carpets on a specific theme such as pirates, cars or maps, man does not fret or the classic with city and streets to play. Among other things, you will find a selection of children's carpets at Knutzen-Wohnen.


Then comes the wall design - the walls, as far as you can see them among all the pictures and posters, should not be made too dark. With wall tattoos or painted motifs you can set individual accents. So it does not always have to be painted completely with one color. For example, handprints from the whole family and friends are a fun way to spice up white walls in the nursery.
