In a little girl’s room, it’s usually most common to use a twin bed. However, whether you want an option that she can grow into or space to accommodate the occasional overnight guests, using a queen size bed in Bedroom for Kids Girls may be an ideal option. It’s not without its issues, though. If you choose a queen bed for your little girl, you’ll need to decorate her room around a much larger piece of furniture, so you may need to make a few adjustments to your decorating plan.

Choose Right Colors
With such a large bed, your daughter’s room may feel a bit cramped. To make the space feel larger and more open, choose the right shade for the walls. Pale colors reflect more light than dark shades so they can make a small Bedroom for Kids Girls appear more spacious. A basic white, cream or ivory can work well alongside a queen size bed. However, you don’t have to go with a neutral if your daughter has a favorite color that she’d like to feature — just use a pale shade from the color family. Baby pink, peach, sky blue, mint, butter and lavender are all light enough to keep from closing in the bedroom.

Keep It Whimsical
A queen size bed can make your daughter’s room look pretty grown-up. To keep the overall look age-appropriate, add kid-friendly touches that express your little girl’s interests. Use stencils to create a border at the top of the walls — flowers and butterflies work for a garden theme, but you might also use a heart, star, tiara or teddy bear stencil to customize the border. Use blackboard paint on a portion of a wall, so your daughter can create new pictures each day. To dress up the windows, use twinkling string lights in your daughter’s favorite color to create a faux valance.
Make the Bed Grand
Given its size, your daughter’s bed is naturally going to dominate the room. Instead of trying to fight it, play up the bed’s presence by giving it a look fit for a princess. While a traditional canopy bed may be too large for the space, you can add a canopy ring to the ceiling above the bed, which allows you to drape a gauzy sheer curtain over the bed. Pair it with an embroidered bedspread — a floral or butterfly pattern works well. Add some throw pillows in luxurious materials like silk and satin to really give the bed a glamorous look. If a headboard or canopy ring takes up too much space in the bedroom for kids girls, create an accent wall by using stencils or wallpaper to add a fun floral, polka dot or stripe pattern to the wall behind the bed.

Since the bed takes up so much room, you should opt for space-saving pieces in the rest of your bedroom for kids girls. If she needs a desk, go with an L-shaped style that fits in a free corner. Use under-bed storage boxes for folded clothing and shoes. Instead of a traditional toy box, opt for a padded bench with storage beneath the seat that can double as seating when your daughter has friends over. If the bedroom has a closet, try placing the dresser inside to free up space in the room. Wall-mounted shelves are also an ideal storage option since they make use of vertical space to store toys, stuffed animals, books, DVDs and decorative items.
