The Nordic style has everything you need to decorate your children’s bedroom. Children are like miniature whirlwinds, albeit whirlwinds that like jumping on beds, playing 24/7 and putting your furniture and decor to the test. The good news is, the Nordic style is famous for its strong, functional furniture.

If you’re thinking about creating a Nordic style children’s bedroom, you’ll find everything you know in this article. Plus, we’ll also show you two of our favorite examples so that you can see just how beautiful and practical the results can be.

The Nordic style: characteristics

Natural elements are an important element in any Nordic style children's bedroom.

Before you start decorating in this decorative style, it’s important to know its main characteristics. Next, we’ll tell you all about them, and show you two examples of how you can use them to create a fantastic Nordic style children’s bedroom.

  • Straight, simple lines: Nordic furniture is well-known for the simplicity of its designs. They are created with functionality in mind. The result is simple, practical furniture composed of straight lines. Best of all, this beautiful furniture is easy to clean, with none of the little nooks that tend to gather dust.
  • Fabrics – must-have materials: Every children’s room needs fabrics, whether it be curtains, carpets, cushions or bedding. They help give the room a warmer and more welcoming environment.
  • Geometric shapes: Nordic decoration is very similar to minimalism. It uses a few key elements to decorate the room without going overboard. One good way to do this is to use geometric shapes. Whether in paintings or other decorative elements, delicate geometric patterns in light tones often decorate the walls
  • Natural elements: This decorative style takes its inspiration from nature. Pale woods, plants, ceramics, or wicker are common features.

We have fallen in love with Nordic style nurseries. The colors, the decoration, and the materials are perfect for creating a warm, pleasant and welcoming environment for your newborn. Next, we want to take a closer look at this room so that you can recreate the look in your home.

It goes without saying that wood is the star material in this room. It is painted in white tones to give it a warmer and more relaxing look.

To stop the room from becoming monotone, the designer has used decorative elements to incorporate other colors. Plus, the simple lines of the paintings on the walls give this room that all important fun look that is perfect for kids.

There is also a rug in the center of the room, which helps to create a contrast with the main colors and materials. This is the only element which isn’t pastel colored. In theory, it shouldn’t even work the rest of the decor.

And yet, it is the perfect finishing touch to the overall look, helping to break with the simple, minimalist lines throughout the rest of the room. At the same time, it is practical and comfortable, allowing your baby to play on the floor.

Simple, practical furniture is essential in a Nordic style children's bedroom.

This second example of a Nordic style children’s bedroom would be great for older children. In this case, it has been decorated according to the Nordic style – the main focus of this post – but it is also heavily influenced by minimalism. The result is a practical and functional bedroom that is perfect for everyday life.

The designer has used pastel tones to decorate this room, with no additional elements to break with the overall theme. This is a really interesting design, with plenty of free space where your children will be able to play comfortably.

It’s important to remember that play is an important part of early learning and development.

As a result, toys inevitably hold an important place in Nordic style children’s bedrooms. All of them are made from natural wood. As well as being great toys for your children to play with, they also play an interesting role in the decoration.
