Deciding your bedroom's style is your first consideration when decorating for your boy or girl. Wood furniture for more traditional decor palettes work best.
Wall color is another consideration. Ideally, choose a hue that's similar to your bedding. A shade or two lighter works great with darker bed sets. With paler bedding, any shade lighter or darker works well for contrast.
Loft beds like these incorporate a fun, energetic ambience for kids' bedrooms while keeping to a traditional theme. Colorful bedding in like colors will build upon your color scheme and add to the room's excitement.

My only regret with fun furniture like these castle beds is they weren't around for my twins.
I can think of few furniture pieces that promote imaginative play than these low loft beds with slide. Imaginative play is crucial to toddlers learning appropriate social skills they'll need come their first day of school. I'm a huge fan of toys and furniture pieces that play a dual role in teaching.

Grounding Your Space with Rugs

As in the model room, here bold rugs help define your toddler's playspace while rounding your decor. Rugs warm the room and lend to the space's cozy, restful look while adding a soft element in the bedroom.
Where space is limited, placing a rug at an angle (diagonally) creates the illusion of more room. Simply tuck the rug under the bed at its (the rug's) corner n watch your space 'grow.' Choose a lively-color rug or a fun play rug with roads or other design kids can play a game on.
With a loft bed and slide, adding a rug will cushion the landing if you've hard flooring. Too, you'll be nearly finished with your decor.

While toddler and little kids' furniture can be costly, especially substantial pieces like this cutie on the flip-side, you'll have the option of selling the bed to recoup some or most of your investment.

This castle loft bed has plenty of visual interest and sports the slide you want. With the bed soaking up all the attention with admiration, little else need be done to finish off your decor. Isn't this castle bed darling?


When Only White Will Do - White Loft Bed with Slide for Toddler Boys & Girls

White Wood Finish Low Loft Bunk Bed with Slide

White can be a great option for your toddler's loft bed. White affords you the choice of unlimited color of decor and bedding.
I do recommend you paint walls in color pulled from your child' bedding. Even a smidgen of color from a bedding set's design can make a statement when mirrored on your wall. Allow the bed to be your room's biggest asset by pairing it with highly contrasting, bold color everywhere else.
While this gender-neutral loft bed is 'plain' white, the possibilities are endless. And that's more power to you.


Metal Junior Low Loft Bed with Slide and Pink Play Tent

Budget-Friendly White Metal Junior Low Loft Bed with Slides


Often times when decorating, I've been tempted to buy that 'gotta-have' chair or piece of art, so I can empathize with those who've made that purchase only to regret it later. I did just that with a painting and could never enjoy it, as an 'invisible dollar sign" seemed to block my view!
The good news, though, is there's always a look-alike somewhere that projects the same value you're pining for.
These metal low (junior) loft beds have the same qualities relating to shape, size and function. Plus they've a fun, colorful slide--just like their pricier cousins but without the heftier dollar sign.


Wall Art & Your Low Loft Bed with Removable Play Room Underneath


Brown Wood Finish Junior Low Loft Bed with Slide & Camo Play Tent
Wall art for bold pieces of furniture like these loft beds needn't be large if you aim to hang it above and behind the bed. I recommend long, rectangular art work or several smaller pieces hung a row, much like you see in the model rooms, here.
For a great way to save on wall art, buy a calendar in your child's bedroom theme and use cheap, black frames for a finished look costing much less, otherwise.
Look for pieces around your home than can be repurposed to decorative pieces. Or, cruise the aisles at a dollar store for ideas. I find when I'm thinking 'outside the box' while out and about, I can find a lot of possibilities.
These loft beds make a big impression alone and little else is needed around them. Less is more when decorating around these attractive beds.
