On the hunt for some stylish girls' bedroom ideas? Whether you are decorating for a toddler, a seven just old who's going on 17, or an actual 17 year old, these rooms are sure to give you some inspiration. When it comes to decorating any kid's room, we always say make sure they are involved too, get them to look through ideas with you, pick colours out and decorations. Sure you might have to vito some things, a slide that takes you from your window into the garden might not be that realistic, but getting them to pick a paint colour will at least make their space feel their own. 

If you are not sure where to start, go and get your child and have a look through these ideas – don't worry there are only five, so their attention span can just about cope, and get planning! PS. these room ideas are obviously not just for girls!

Loving the soft colour scheme in this girl's bedroom! And that wall mural is perfect for adding in even more of those rosy hues. You can DIY this look so easily too, all you need is some masking tape and some paint. Just create your mountain shapes with masking tape and paint in between the lines – easy peasy and you can go with what ever colours you and your child like. To add some stars, just pick up a a really cheap stencil if you don't trust your freehand skills. 

2. Pick a neutral colour scheme that will grow with them

Just because they said they love Minions today, that doesn’t mean they will love them next week. So to avoid constantly having to repaint the walls or strip off blue and yellow wallpaper, opt for a scheme with staying power. Obviously listen to their suggestions, but always keep one eye on the future by picking a neutral colour that will serve as a blank canvas to more decorative accessories, and the ever changing preferences of the room's occupant. The other plus side? Light neutrals make small kids' rooms look larger, too.

3. Incorporate a workspace into your kid's room

Looking for girls' bedroom ideas for once they start school? As kids get older they are going to need a space to get homework done, or at least pretend to get homework done. Finding space to squeeze in a desk can be tricky in a smaller bedroom so look for neglected spaces that could be put to good use – alcoves are perfect for this – then install a small desk or even a shelf and you've got a work space. 

No alcove? No problem. A wall mounted drop down desk with a few wall shelves will create a mini workstation and won’t take up too much precious square footage. 

4. Put a clothes rail in a teenage girl's bedroom for easy access

Teenage us would have killed for this kind of set up in our bedroom. So much easier than rummaging through hundreds of clothes in the wardrobe, the makes all your kid's fave outfits really easily accessible. Plus we think this actually looks really cool too, and would be a great feature in a girl's bedroom. This is the Turbo rack from Ikea and is only £35. 

5. Add personality to a girl's bedroom

H&M is a great place for picking up these kinds of pieces that are both kid-friendly and actually really aesthetically pleasing, so have a scroll through and get your kid to pick out some bits for their bedroom.
