Copy that – seven kids’ bedrooms you’ll love

Classy colour palettes, clever storage, discrete spaces – rooms your kids will never want to leave

 

1. Feminine feel

Painted floorboards and a subtle pink trim on the woodwork inject a feminine feel without being over the top. 3 Vesey Place, Monkstown, Co Dublin. Price: €2.4m

2. A perfect haven

A clever decal, recessed lighting and a custom-built wood framed bed, with integrated storage and matching stylish wooden panelling, create the perfect haven for a boy in this small two-bedroom house. 47 Oliver Plunkett Road, Monkstown, Co Dublin. Price: €385,000

3. Growing up

Smart styling and muted shades make this a great room for a child moving gently into adulthood. 72 Tritonville Road, Sandymount, Dublin 4. Price: €1.2m

4. Timeless

Bright styling and feature wallpaper on one wall are smart ways to lift a bedroom in a standard redbrick period terrace. The cast iron fireplace, polished wooden floor and ceiling covings are bonuses that will survive the test of time. 101 Connaught Street, Phibsborough, Dublin 7. Price: €595,000

5. Light and roomy

Space has been cleverly thought through in this upper level bedroom. The porthole window, skylight, double height ceiling, fitted wardrobe and corner desk unit make it light and roomy. 1A Lower Albert Road, Sandycove, Co Dublin. Price: €1.435m

6. Classic 1950s

Light floods this classic 1950s home. The addition of small but effective touches including cheerful curtains and a pink lampshade and chair soften the look. 15 Richview Park, Dartry, Dublin 6. Price: €2.25m

7. Down below

This basement-level room has folding French doors out to a patio area, and smart use of a recessed wall as a vanity corner, while a day bed creates greater space. 3 Vesey Place, Monkstown, Co Dublin. Price: €2.4m
