Decorating youth rooms is not always easy. Especially for children and they begin to need not only more space but also their space. Their bedroom is no longer just a space where they sleep, over time, it becomes their refuge. For this reason, when meters are scarce, it is essential to use ingenuity and, many times, custom-made furniture to convert a few centimeters into practical solutions that, otherwise, would not be used.

A ROOM WITH TWO BEDS THAT DISAPPEAR

A ROOM WITH TWO BEDS THAT DISAPPEAR

The key to this bunk bed is that it is folding: during the day it closes vertically and leaves plenty of free space for the children of the house to play. The railing is brought to the side and, where you saw a bed, then you see a closed closet.

WITH A BLANK STUDY AREA

The decorator Elena Eyre took advantage of the space next to the beds with a small desk, also in white, which seems to be part of the structure of the bunk bed thanks to the upper shelf that runs along the entire wall, integrating the bed and study area.

MINI AND WITH THREE BEDS

MINI AND WITH THREE BEDS

Putting three beds in this youth room was a real challenge for the Barn Design studio since the space was mini and narrow. The solution was a loft bed and two “L” beds at the bottom. And, to give it that extra point of warmth that a mountain house asked for, wainscoting of horizontal white slats was designed, which also protects the walls.

WITH TWO SHELVES AS A BEDSIDE TABLE

WITH TWO SHELVES AS A BEDSIDE TABLE

Two shelves in the corner serve as a bedside table for the lower and upper beds, respectively. In addition, it has a chest to store bedding. In youth rooms where space is lacking, a floating shelf can be a good substitute for the nightstand.

A SMALL YOUTH ROOM BUT WITH EVERYTHING

A SMALL YOUTH ROOM BUT WITH EVERYTHING

Mini but nothing is missing. The key? Custom-made furniture that fits the space like a glove, not giving up an inch. Thus, the decorator Marta Prats planned a loft bed that she completed with a flown shelf as a desk. This idea is also great for children’s rooms.

WITH ROOM FOR TWO

The height of the bed has been used to integrate a trundle bed and a row of drawers to keep everything from clothes to toys in order. Everything in white helps make the room look bigger and brighter.

AN INFORMAL YOUTH ROOM WITH TWO L BEDS

To alleviate the fair meters of this youth room, the interior designers Laia and Marina Reguant devised a set of “L” beds on a lacquered platform with drawers, which complement the built-in wardrobe storage under the stairs.

A MULTIPURPOSE SHELF

The decorators also took advantage of the space under the window with a matching shelf that serves as a headboard and a bedside table. And, to give it a casual point, they took a risk with blue, which works very well with the color of the wood. The wainscot, being made of wallpaper, protects the walls from friction and blows.

A WELL-USED YOUTH ROOM WITH A TRAIN BUNK

A WELL-USED YOUTH ROOM WITH A TRAIN BUNK

The decorator Meritxell Ribé has optimized the space of this small youth room to the maximum with a custom-made train-type bunk, which takes advantage of the entire length of the wall. In fact, one of the handicaps of this type of bunk bed is that you need a free wall of at least 300 cm.

WITH A COMPLETE STUDY AREA AND A VERY CAPABLE CLOSET

WITH A COMPLETE STUDY AREA AND A VERY CAPABLE CLOSET

The decorator devised a custom structure in parallel to the bunk that integrates a closet, with little depth to fit the free space up to the window, and the study area, with a shelf on top.

WITH A DRESSING ROOM INTEGRATED INTO THE TRAIN BED

WITH A DRESSING ROOM INTEGRATED INTO THE TRAIN BED

One of the advantages of train beds is that you can take advantage of the side with a complete wardrobe or drawers. Here, the decorator has enabled a dressing room designed so that you can enter inside, hence it has a bench to sit on.

SMALL, WELL USED AND WITHOUT FEAR OF COLOR

SMALL, WELL USED AND WITHOUT FEAR OF COLOR

A youth room should not be white because it is small. And this one, with a wall covered with dark gray wallpaper, proves it. The space was so small that it was marked by the location of the bed, which was reserved under the window because if you turned around, there was no more useful space for anything else.

A DESK AREA WITH A BRIDGE STRUCTURE

A DESK AREA WITH A BRIDGE STRUCTURE

To gain more storage space in the closet, the decorator extended it with a bridge-type structure that reaches up to the desk with a module with less depth to visually integrate it with the desk. A great idea for youth rooms where space is at a premium.

IN BLUE AND WITH A BED WITH A SOFA VOCATION

IN BLUE AND WITH A BED WITH A SOFA VOCATION

Bed at night and sofa by day. The decorator Begoña Susaeta planned the decoration of this youth room so that the bed can be used even during the day, as a relaxation area, to read or to play with the tablet. The key is the upholstered backrest, which also serves to protect the wall from friction.

WITH AN ORIGINAL STUDY AREA

WITH AN ORIGINAL STUDY AREA

The decorator has taken advantage of a recess by the window to create a bright study corner, with blue as the link with the bed area. It consists of a mini chest of drawers and, on another level, the flown shelf that serves as a table.

A MINI ROOM WITH TWO BEDS AND A STUDY AREA

In this room, a lot of ingenuity has had to be used to make the most of the space. The Dröm Living team decided to design a loft bed, which fits into the space of the window, thus freeing up the lower part so that it could house an extra bed parallel to the window and a small study area.

A DUAL-USE DESK AND AN INVISIBLE CLOSET

A DUAL-USE DESK AND AN INVISIBLE CLOSET

The desk, being next to the lower bed, also serves as a makeshift bedside table. And the gap that remained between the upper bed and the wall has been used with a wardrobe as it adjusts its height to the bed, being able to use the upper part of the wardrobe as a bedside table.
