We take a look at some trendy toddler room ideas that can transform your toddler room into a delightful haven, including toddler bedding for sale, furniture and decorating ideas.

In many cases, trendy Mums choose neutral colours when selecting toddler fashion for bedrooms. Discreet, understated colours are ideal for furniture, bedding and walls. Why? They go with everything!

Classic Toys

Want to be on trend when it comes to whimsical bedrooms for toddlers? Include classic, well-made toys into your child’s décor. Simple, classic toys encourage your children to use their imaginations and engage in creative play.

There’s something about a soft, handmade or carved toy from wood that makes us get all nostalgic and think about the good old days. You can help your child create wonderful memories of their own by adding toys like these to their room:

  • The La De Dah Kids Crochet Monkey, made in an understated grey with a jaunty scarf tied around its neck, a crocheted monkey, the perfect stuffed toy to perch on a bookshelf or to decorate a toddler bed.

No stylish toddler bedroom is complete without classic wooden toys. Timeless, durable and elegant, wood toys have been gracing children’s bedrooms for years. Parents who want to provide their children with quality toys that last should include these sturdy playthings in a toddler’s room.

  • Great for boys or girls, the wooden push toy Moover Baby Truck is perfect. The cool thing about this particular wooden toy is that your child can play with it in two ways. Push it along or hop onto the seat and take it for a spin. Created by Childplay, this is a good choice for any stylish parent seeking quality wooden trucks for a toddler.

Building with blocks helps your little toddler develop language skills as well. Consider purchasing Soopsori Giraffe & Domino Blocks. Crafted from wood and rubber bands, these eco-friendly blocks are treated with linseed oil to stand the test of time.

  • Forget Superman, Spiderman and all those other superheroes people fawn over. Your child just may agree with us when they take one look at La De Dah Kids Super Max.

Soft and huggable, his muted colours complement the understated and sophisticated décor of any toddler room.

  • Any time is teatime when you include Make Me Iconic Bickies into your toddler’s room. Wooden toys that pay homage to Australia’s most iconic biscuits, these ten cute “biscuits” will help your child imagine they are hosting a tea party or whipping up something scrumptious in the kitchen. Numbers are included on the back of each biscuit to help your toddler learn number recognition. When they’re finished “eating” or counting the biscuits, they can pack them away in their own little tin.

Rugs and mats

Rugs and Mats

A trendy rug or mat can pull an entire room together. It’s also nice to have one on a cold winter’s night when your room has a hardwood floor! Take a look at these options:

Wall Art

Add some personality and colour to toddler walls. Today’s market provides fashion-conscious Mums with a wide variety of art to decorate a child’s room, such as:

  • Little Pop Studio Messy Mouse Wall Art may be just the artwork you need to brighten up a child’s room décor. Little Pop Studio, located in New Zealand, created the original, but you can own a high-quality replica of the watercolour painting.

  • Decorate a toddler’s room in black. It’s elegant, crisp and oh-so-stylish. The Homely Creatures Felt Petal Bunting in black will serve as a striking accent to any child’s room. Hang it across the wall, suspend it from the ceiling or drape it across the bed. Handmade by women in Nepal, it’s created from 100 percent New Zealand wool felt.

  • Spice up a bare wall with stickers. What child doesn’t love them? They plaster them on their hands, their faces, their notebooks. Why not plaster them on walls? But don’t use just any stickers. Try these stylish ones — Sack Me! Green Mob Wall Stickers. These fun little veggie stickers will decorate the walls and just might encourage your toddler to eat their vegetables.

  • The Dark Knight and his sidekick Robin are back. But this time, they want to hang out on your child’s walls. That’s right — Little Pop Studio Bat Boys Iii Wall Art. It’s a reproduction of a watercolour painted by Little Pop Studio, and it’s printed on the same type of texturized linen paper Little Pop Studio is known for. Your little one will sleep peacefully beneath the watchful gaze of these two iconic superheroes.

  • Maybe you prefer your art to be functional. That’s okay. Try the La De Dah Kids Fox Timber Clock. This wooden wall clock with a fox face will add a modern touch to any child’s room. It features Quartz movement and arrives at your door ready to hang on the wall.

Cradle Rock and Snowpuppe Lamps

The right type of lamps can increase the elegance of any room, including the room where your precious toddler sleeps. Look for these options to add functionality and style:

  • Keeping with a sophisticated theme, try adding the bronze Cradle Rock Toadstool Lamp to your child’s room. It’s whimsical, fun and provides a fairytale flair to the décor.

  • Is it art? Is it a lamp? Maybe it’s both! You be the judge when you include the Snowpuppe Moth Gradient to your child’s room. It comes in grey and will add a dramatic, artistic touch to your child’s bedroom. Folded from special FSC paper, the delicate folds issue forth a soft, comforting light. And isn’t that what you want when choosing lamps for your child’s room?
