Wall Murals

One kid-friendly favorite interior design option is to hang up a stunning wall mural or wallpaper. These murals are the perfect kid-friendly option as they are generally not printed with the toxic chemicals older decor used to have. They can be hung easily and are scratch and rub resistance. They can take all the wear and tear of a rambunctious child, and if they ever get extra creative and take a pen or marker to them, you can easily wash them with a rag and gentle soap. There are so many lovely options to pick from to perfect your kid's room interior.


Tepees have become a really big trend in interior design, and you can see why below! They’re so sweet and quaint and are a perfect addition to a nursery, playroom or kids bedroom. They can be used as a sleep space or as a play area for a child. You can buy one or do it yourself to make it just the perfect size for the room you put it in. Decorate it with a fun garland and pillows and a cute rug underneath. It will become the perfect play space to cozy up with a book or a doll or two. It's one of our favorite interior design ideas for kids!

Garage Storage

This interior design kid-friendly option might seem a bit boring to you or not so much a design thing, but trust us it is! How you organize your child’s playroom or your garage can be done in such a way that makes it extremely good to look at. Find baskets to hold balls in, hang bikes from the ceiling, and create a special place all for your kids in an area that may feel like it’s just for adults. It’s not, though! The garage can be the perfect place for them to run in and out of to grab their toys and making it easy for them to grab exactly what they’re looking for quickly.

Mud Rooms

A mudroom is a perfect interior design option for your home. Kids and adults alike love to go out and have adventures, but sometimes those adventures bring back dirt, mud, or sand, and a mudroom is just the ticket. You can install it close to the laundry room or a bathroom so that when they come back from swimming in the pool or playing out in the yard, they can quickly wash off any dirt or dry off without tracking it into the rest of the house. Here's some decor inspiration for mudrooms!

If your home has the space for it, a playroom is a wonderful interior design idea for kids. You can set aside a space for all things kid-related. This can help keep the rest of your house free of piles of toys or other messes—plus, if designed right, you can turn it into a perfect little space for them to create and play make-believe in.
