Want to make your kid's bedroom have some longevity?  It's hard to pick just the right furniture and decor to grow with your son or daughter.  Take a look at these kids rooms we have done that can easily transition to the next stage of life...

 The loft bed shown here and in the photo at the top of the blog is from CollegeBedLofts.com.  It came disassembled and unstained.  We could stain or paint whatever we wanted.  There are added features that we didn't choose like a desk  or bookshelves.  We placed a PBTeen sectional underneath for hanging out or sleepovers.  This set up works well from middle school through high school.  It can be made feminine by the paint color, bedding and art.

 We decorated this room for a 2nd grade girl.  The dandelions on the wall are custom, and can be re-positioned or removed very easily.  They mimic the dandelions in the shade fabric ( Duralee  Fabric).  With a few tweaks (stuffed animals) this room can easily take this young lady through her middle school years.

 These headboards (made from skis my client no longer used) can go in a boy's or girl's room.  They are fun for any kid who skis, no matter what the age!

 These built in daybeds are ready for any preteen and can take them all the way through high school.  The built in shelves have a charging station (you've got to keep your devices charged!) plus a dimmable night light (for those afraid of the dark...come on, you know who you are!)  The grey and orange paint can be made more masculine or feminine with pillows and bedding.

 This is definitely a young girl's room.  But, remove the Raggedy Ann dolls and it can work for a middle school or high school girl.

 Here we are back at the 2nd grade girl's bedroom.  Her desk is a bit small for an older child, but the lamp, desk chair and book rack can transition nicely as she gets older.  She'd definitely need new art work, though!

How have you created your kid's room to grow with them?  We'd love to see your pictures!
