Furniture from other rooms often finds new life when repurposed for use in children's rooms. Here, a console table previously used in the adjacent hallway was reoriented as a kid-sized desk. It's paired with a modern chrome Bertoia chair, a piece that can be used in any room of the house. The floor lamp that used to sit beside the living room sofa is now a desk lamp that's the perfect height to provide overhead lighting.

When it comes to lighting, consider replacing basic, contractor-grade fixtures. In this bedroom, a 4-foot-long white plastic pendant helps ground the space, but it also adds plenty of overhead lighting. Additionally, the white plastic diffuses the light, giving off a flattering glow.

While paint is the fastest and most cost-effective way to add color to a room, it lacks texture and, for the most part, warmth. An excellent alternative is grass-cloth wall covering. It wraps a space with warm, organic texture, yet also introduces color.

A sense of history in a child's room helps honor his or her family's past. To add personal touches, it's nice to mix old with new. Above the bed in this children's room is a handed-down embroidered art piece. It not only serves as a nod to older generations but it carries the accent color, orange, throughout the room.

As children grow to become kids, then tweens, then teens, they gradually become more interested in their appearance, making a mirror a must. To incorporate mirrors in an age-appropriate but designer-caliber way, it's smart to choose decorative styles that are also large enough in size to be used for getting ready for school.

When choosing accent fabrics, such as pillows and bedding, look for prints that are fun and bold, yet don't limit a child to a particular theme. Not only will this save money in the long run, but also it offers parents the potential to rotate accent pillows into other areas of the house.

Custom furniture doesn't always require a large price tag or materials too delicate for kids. The daybed in this children's room was custom-made with affordable pine, constructed in a modern design by installing 1- by 4-inch planks horizontally. This achieves an architectural style parents can enjoy, as well as a fun, painted finish perfect for kids.

To add longevity to a room's design, consider using a daybed. Twin mattresses turned parallel to the wall save valuable space in the room and allow beds to double as lounges. During tween and teen years, lounge spaces quickly become the best hangout spots in the house.

As kids grow, their taste in activities changes. To ensure the most bang for your buck when choosing furniture, always consider multipurpose pieces. This grassy-green steel occasional table is currently being used as a side table between two armless chairs, yet it was built for use as a stool.

Active children often need their rooms reoriented as their choice of activities change. To make life easier for Mom, Dad and the little one, choose furniture on casters. This comes in handy for moving things around quickly and easily.

To spend money on kids' room upholstery wisely, choose colorful, graphic fabrics that are fun and vivid enough for a child, yet classic, timeless and sophisticated enough for parents. To ensure durability, consider having the fabric treated to be stain-resistant.

Parents and children often spend time reading together just before bedtime. To ensure a comfy spot for all, incorporate a small seating space. Choosing armless chairs takes up less visual space and gives the illusion that the room is slightly larger than it is.

To give the children's bedroom pizzazz that's colorful and bold enough for kids, but chic and mature enough for parents, the windows were dressed with orange-and-white-toned botanical print draperies. Paired with woven wood blinds, the window coverings add privacy and filter out the strong California sun.
