There’s nothing quite like a classic treehouse to give kids a taste of adventure and excitement. You may think you need to have a big sturdy tree in the back garden to give your kids the full treehouse experience but you can easily incorporate the essence of this wonderful childhood favourite into your child’s bedroom.
Don’t panic, I’m not talking about bringing a tree into your home or even incorporating an outdoor treehouse; all it takes is a creative mind and a bit of determination. Here are some simple but effective bedroom treehouse designs to choose from:
Soft and Cushioned
All kids love treehouses and would adore having one in their own bedroom. For younger kids however, you may wish to stay clear of hard surfaces and opt for a softer alternative. You will need a soft and comfortable mattress that you can find right here and various coloured cushions to decorate the room. There are plenty of treehouse or leaf style cushions that are made from soft materials and these will be best suited for younger kids or those prone to scrapes and scratches. A softer treehouse in their bedroom means that they can enjoy the addition without getting themselves in trouble.
Bunk Bed Treehouse
Bunk beds are ideal for transforming your kid’s bedroom into a treehouse inspired room because there is already a featured ladder with the beds and all you have to do is build the structure around it. This option is perfect for siblings who will be sharing the treehouse. They may fight over the top bunk but at least they’ll have a secret place to visit when they need to go and rewind after a long hard day of being a kid.
If you only have one child to cater for Midi Sleepers work well as again they have a leader, they are not massively tall and the underneath can be transformed into maybe a forest floor!
Inject colour into your kid’s room by incorporating a colourful treehouse maybe even a large wall mural or wall stickers to create the effect.
You can take it to the next level and install a hanging chair. According to House and Garden, a hanging chair is one of the most ‘failsafe options’ for decorating a child’s bedroom. They can use it to play games on, read books and even to complete their homework. The only problems with this idea is that you probably won’t be seeing much of your kids after installing it that is once you have managed to get it installed!
Pirate Themed Treehouse
Pirates of the Caribbean is a huge favourite for kids around the world. If your child is into the whole pirate theme then you’re lucky because creating a pirate themed treehouse is incredibly simple. It involves lots of treasure chests and a classic pirate flag flying on top. Bored Panda recommends this idea and shows an example in which the designer incorporated a kind of tight rope hammock, which would be ideal if you have a large room to decorate and plenty of space to use up, if not what about some hammocks for holding stuffed toys??
