Project Title
Jungle Animals Theme Room Design For Kids
Project Description
Looking to completely re-design this rather boring bedroom in our new home. Besides finding a great space that are now toddler can transition from a crib to a bed into, we are looking to start a primary goal in our house which is rid of all the browns and make it a little more stylish. We have a hard time coming up with this on our own and need some help with direction so figured Decorilla would be great to try with this. Everything with this room - flooring, walls, trim, doors, fixtures is fair game to change.

Our son is currently just over 2 years old. He is fascinated with cars, trucks and construction equipment. Also likes animals, not really any in particular over the others. He likes blues and greens but I don't think he has a really favorite color. Right now he is still in a crib. Will probably transition to a toddler version of his crib in the next few months, with longer term looking to transition to a small bed (probably nothing larger than a twin, if that, for now).

Our style is typically modern/contemporary. Glam/eclectic certainly have an appeal, just not how our house is laid out.

But I find that my general idea of a kids room is to be fun so maybe it doesn't really need to follow a specific style. It does seem though that a lot of the toddler rooms I find online seem to be of one style - I attached a few pictures of stuff I liked, but overall was a little disappointed on the boys side. More feminine/girls rooms seemed cooler from a style perspective :/

It's not a big room, so I wasn't expecting to spend more than 5-10k but I also have only a very general sense of what it should cost. If it means a cool room, we are certainly able to go higher. I am not including any paint, flooring, etc. in this budget - I find those to be essential and will pay whatever it is.

I want this room to feel more masculine/feminine/neutral
Masculine
What type of sunlight does this room receive?
Morning light
What do you currently dislike about the room?
Almost everything - it does get great light in the morning facing east. Great for around noon (nap time) as it darkens but it is a little too dark during the rest of the day due to the positioning and also lack of big windows. Currently have a single overhead light source, which is inadequate (we have an old lamp seen in one of the pictures to fill in - not attached to this). The brown also does not help with making a "bright" space and the color tones are probably what we like the least about this room - from the trim to the doors to the carpet - it is all brown and just makes it feel even more blah. That's not saying a dark color couldn't be used - just not the way it is currently set up. We are looking to change everything about this room (trim, doors, wall color, carpet)
What pieces of existing furniture, lighting, art or accessories do you want to keep in the design?
We just moved recently and have little furniture that we are attached to or that probably would work in this room as our boy grows up, so not attached to anything.
Are you open to changing your wall colors?
Yes
Do you have a preference for either paint or wall covering, or are you open to both?
Open to both

Which type of flooring do you prefer?

Additional comments to designers
Little disappointed by photos out there for boy's toddler rooms but I uploaded a few that either had layouts I liked (reading area in the corner) or a picture of a girls room that had a neat idea for a desk/builtin (I think it was from Decorilla website). I generally found a ton of themed rooms (nautical, race car, Star Wars) but I think that might cause his room to be a little dated as he grows up and changes his interests so fast. Sure, a few themed objects/ascents would be cool but we are not looking for a room completely filled with trucks everywhere.

One comment on flooring - we certainly would like to get rid of the current carpet. We otherwise have hardwood just about everywhere else, so figured it would be easiest to just replace with some other carpet. I don't think I would want to match our current hardwoods (dark stain - almost identical to the trim) and I figure that using a lighter hardwood might be strange? Haven't seen that executed before to define a room. I mean we're up to anything but that was my thoughts.

On colors - I just picked some tones/general colors I like. But not limited to those specific colors by any means.

I am happy to answer any questions you have for me. I think I have a hard time getting started imaging this room my input may not be of much help. That is why I am turning to you.

Nursery:

Since your room is smaller using a light and pale color will enhance the light and the space in your room

For your main color, we chose to use white/off-white as it offers a fresh, clean, feel to the space. White and off-white colors are often a favorite for walls because they are light, neutral, and match most color schemes. They are known to make rooms feel more airy and spacious.

Use an eggshell finish paint which has a very light touch of shine (similar texture to an eggshell as implied by its name). This finish is very often used for walls and is more durable and easier to clean than matte finish
