Children's rooms - Small changes for big impact

Children's rooms are my favourite to put together in our home, I just love creating a gorgeous yet practical space for my girls to play in or sleep in. We've recently added some wonderful items from the new confetti range from Great Little Trading Company to the girl's rooms which have made a huge difference.

Childrens rooms - small changes for big impact

Some small changes and additions have completely changed the look and feel of the rooms without us having to decorate. Ellie and Phoebe share a bedroom which we've added a new rug, a beanbag and some more toy storage to, all of which have made the room a much more inviting space to be in. 

Great Little Trading Company Confetti Spot Rug

The Confetti Spot Rug has made the biggest difference to the room and I absolutely love it. The carpet in the girl's room, although neutral, isn't what I would have chosen and is due an upgrade. The generous size of the rug (120W x 180L) means that along with the coverage that the furniture in the room gives there is now very little carpet on display.

Made from 100% hand tufted wool it's unbelievably soft to walk on, sit and play on and even lie on as Ellie and Phoebe have taken to doing! It feels and looks so luxurious.

It's colourful enough to inject some fun into the room for the children but neutral enough to feel part of our family home and would work with most colour schemes due to the accent colours of the confetti spots. It's really lightened up the space and also serves a feature for the middle of the room which with the girls beds in opposite corners of the room had left a bit of a no mans land previously. It's such a simple change with a really big impact, I couldn't believe how much difference it made literally in minutes.

The addition of some stackable toy storage has meant that the girls now have somewhere to keep some toys to play with when they wake up in the morning or while we're getting ready for bed. The boxes are large enough to fit things in but small enough for them to be able to lift themselves. You can use them either stacked up to two boxes high or just singularly, they are just so versatile.

They are such high quality which is really important when toys are constantly getting taken in and out of them and really sturdy. The have a cute little blackboard on the front to either write your child's name on or able up the box with what it houses such as blocks, books, cars, dolls etc

I like the girl's bedrooms to feel calm when I put them to bed. The boxes have really helped tidy up the space and are just super handy and easy to move around to where you need a bit of extra storage. We have them in confetti spot but they come in lots of other patterns too.

Lottie's room is the smallest room in the house and with her cot and wardrobe in the room there isn't space for much else. I wanted her to have some toys in her room too so we have added the Poppins Toy Chest with the Confetti Spot seat cushion to the end of her bed.

It's a great bit of furniture for a children's room and works as a three in one - it's a seat, chest and also has a drawer. It has a really good safety hinge so I don't have to worry about her trapping her fingers in it and the drawer has a soft close mechanism. It's a really unobtrusive, well made piece of furniture but with loads of space to store toys.

The drawer is perfect for things like puzzles or games and smaller toys while the main chest can accommodate bigger things. You could use it for lots of other things besides toys, storing things like nappies blankets and towels in. The seat cover is a lovely addition and Lottie loves hopping up onto it to read a book or play on top of it.

The seat cover is machine washable and zips on and off really easily. I love that it's 100% cotton too. Again this has been a really simple change which has altered the feel and functionality of Lottie's room and also freed up space in other parts of the house as we've been able to move some of the toys from downstairs upstairs.
