It’s always a little bittersweet; the moment that you realize your little one is ready to upgrade from a nursery to a toddler room. As a mom of four, I’m all too familiar with the feeling and I also know just how much fun it is to create a space that matches their blossoming personality!
Creating a toddler room means designing a space that can help encourage them to transition to their own space and embrace independence. There are a ton of different ways to decorate a toddler room. Even with your toddler’s unique traits and interests in mind, it can be hard to know how to create the perfect toddler bedroom for them.
With this in mind, I’m sharing ideas that will hopefully inspire you to decorate your toddler’s room and design a space that they will love.
12 Toddler Room Decor Ideas
Pretty Pink Toddler Room
This is such an adorable idea for a toddler who is into anything and everything pink. Embrace your little one’s sweet and girly side by designing the ultimate pink bedroom. You can stick to one shade of pink or incorporate several different shades.
Some adorable decor items for a pretty pink toddler room include:
- Double-layer pink curtains
- Pink/white alphabet rug
- Pink area rug
- Hanging bed canopy
- Pink ruffle bedding set
Sports-Themed Toddler Room
Is your toddler already showing an interest in sports? Why not lean into their love of the game with a sports-themed bedroom? Whether it’s baseball, basketball, soccer, football, hockey, etc., there are countless ways to design a toddler room they will love.
To decorate a sports-themed toddler room, incorporate some of these items:
- Sports throw pillows
- Football, basketball, and baseball bedside lamp
- Basketball storage bin
- Round sports rug
Whimsy Toddler Room
Think of a whimsy toddler room as one that is excessively extravagant but in a playful way. It incorporates a lot of fun and fancy details that, together, create a space straight out of a children’s book.
To create the ultimate whimsy toddler room, start with colorful wallpaper. Wallpaper like this foral-inspired one or nature-inspired one would be perfect, especially with a board and batten wall. I especially adore this whimsical toddler bed!
From there, you can add whimsical decor pieces that catch your eye (or your toddler’s). Consider items such as:
Boho Toddler Room
Boho decor is really popular right now, especially in modern home decor, and it works great in a toddler room. It uses a more neutral color scheme and incorporates a lot of muted tones and natural elements.
Like the other toddler bedroom themes on this list, there’s no wrong way to decorate a boho-themed room. You can start with a big kid bed like this rattan twin bed, then add boho pieces like:
- 7-Piece Flat Rattan Wall Basket Decor
- Ivory and Rose Distressed Area Rug
- Macrame Stuffed Animal Hammock
- Tufted Toddler Bedding Set
Planes, Trains, & Automobiles Toddler Room
How adorable are those decals in the picture above? If your little one is into vehicles, why not dive in with a planes, trains, and automobiles theme for their bedroom? In addition to fun wall decals, you can add the following pieces to make a space they’ll love:
- Car Rug
- Transportation-themed laundry basket
- Window Curtains: Transportation Theme
- Transportation Bedding Set
Zoo-Themed Toddler Room
Does your toddler go wild every time they visit the zoo? Why not bring the zoo to them? There are so many fun ways to bring this adorable theme to life!
Some of my favorite zoo-themed decor pieces include:
Rainbow Toddler Room
The key to pulling off a rainbow toddler room is to use more muted colors, rather than bold, bright hues that can be overwhelming in a small space.
Some great ways to decorate the walls in a rainbow toddler room are to put up a large rainbow decal or pick one color for an accent wall, then add fun elements such as:
- Rainbow Hopscotch Rug
- Flush Rainbow Cloud Ceiling Light
- Rainbow Curtains
- Comforter Bedding Set – Rainbows
Vintage Toddler Room
Do you have a love for all things vintage? Consider creating a vintage toddler room! There are a ton of different ways to decorate a vintage-themed bedroom.
To really “set the mood,” I’d start with off-white paint for the walls or maybe add some wallpaper. From there, you can add some antique furniture and other vintage elements you want to pull the whole space together.
Some great vintage-themed decor pieces you can use in a toddler bedroom include:
Rustic Toddler Room
A rustic toddler room combines boho and vintage elements to create a theme reminiscent of a countryside estate. Farmhouse decor is really popular right now, so this is a great way to welcome the aesthetic into your toddler’s new space.
To decorate your toddler’s room with a rustic theme, consider using some of these pieces:
Book-Themed Toddler Room
If your toddler loves to read (or you want to encourage them to enjoy books as much as you do) consider a book theme for their new bedroom!
There are several fun ways to use this theme. You can cover the walls with bookshelves and add a reading nook, or you can decorate the space with characters from their favorite books. Remember, the idea is to create a space where your toddler can feel comfortable and inspired.
Some decor ideas include:
- Reading Will Take You Everywhere Decals
- Cool Kids Read Books Wall Hanging
- Wall-Mounted Book Shelves
- Freestanding Bookcase
- Tell Me A Story Area Rug
Nature-Themed Toddler Room
Does your toddler love spending time outside? You can bring the great outdoors inside by creating a fun nature-themed toddler room. Consider using a color scheme that incorporates different shades of green and brown, then add fun decor pieces such as:
Space-Themed Toddler Room
Up, up, and away! A space-themed toddler room is a great idea for any enthusiastic little explorer! This theme is pretty easy to pull off too. Just paint one or more walls dark navy blue, then add space-themed wall decals.
Add a few of these neat decor pieces to create a space that’s truly out of this world!
