So your little one is looking to get his big boy bed and you have an Ikea Kura in mind due to its price point and sleek design. You are looking to make his room something he will like in an effort he will have fun in his room and leave you to have a lie in the morning!!!
Here are my collection of super cute Ikea Kua Bedrooms that are so beautiful and simple to make. Its surprising but with such a blank canvas you can create such different looks. Just decide on a theme, keep it consistent and run with it.
Theme: Black white and grey.
Staring with coordinated bunting that can be secured from one side of the bed to the other and paring with black and white coushin. Keeping the Kura as is and bringing in the pine look with matching wooden shelves.
A few fun accessories bring this enough fun for a little man but keeps with the tone of the bedroom. The elephant on the wall and soft elephants on the shelves.
The main focus of a jungle bedroom is to have a big jungle mural on the wall. This makes you feel like you are in the jungle and your little man will love the aniamals, he will quickly learn the names. Coordinate with wall art, check out the caption in this following example! :
Theme: Black & White
I´m loving the bold statement that is all black and white. Its a timeless colour theme that will grow with your boy. Quickly change up the Kura bed by painting the wood black and using sticker decals on the white area. The following bead has created the roof top montisorri style, but this would work without it if that seemed too much work! The black and white super hero bedding just makes this look.
Theme: The Cubby Hole
If its one things little ones like to do its make cubby houses. It doesn’t matter it is the sheets of the bed, the mattress over the sofa, your child will love houses. Imagine the fun when they have their very own cubby house under their bed. This following example has create just that. Actually there are many quick and easy ready made covers for the Kura Turing your bed in to a happy hiding place.
I´m yet to meet a little boy, mine included that doesn’t like dinosaurs! These decals are so easy to stick on to the Kura and whats more they have the names of the Dinosaurs your little man will know in time. The steps up to the bed will be something your little one will take full advantage off and give them something to play. I love how in this example they have stuck dinosaur footprints going up the stairs. Check out the little cubby hole under the bed also.
Theme: fire engine
Ask you little one which bedroom he like best, chances are it would be making his bed in to a fire engine. I mean who wouldn’t was to sleep in a fire engine? These easy decals stick on making an instant transformation. Accessorise with red wooden matching toys.
Create your very own fortress under the bed with the perfect doors, easily added to your bed to make it in to a Castle. Can be closed from inside also making your very own little house. Clearly the slide attachment is a fun attraction.
Theme: Dark Blue
Paint one focus wall dark blue and contrast with all white accessories. The blue and white theme is a classic combination that will grow with your child. In the following room they have painted the Kura all white and accessorised with black and white prints. I love keeping the bedding all neutral and a little bit of bohemian chique with the dream catcher on the wall.
The planets hanging from the ceiling definitely make this bedroom. My little boy asks so many questions on space, having a visual of all the plants in order on his bedroom ceiling is a definite learning experience. I always like glow in the dark stars when the lights are turned off.
In the following room they have turned the Ikea Kura to a bunk bed and kept a focus wall green and coordinated with orange tones, staining the Kura to give it more richness.
Theme: Black, grey and white
Painting the Kura black gives it a dramatic view. I love how the brown have been used to break up the colour which a teddy pillow and big hanging monkey. Tasteful toys have also been displayed on the wall, the horse in a cage is a nice touch.
Creating a mountain scape on the wall is not as hard as you think. Simple tape of the area and paint the desired colours. I see more and more people experimenting with painted feature walls and it relatively cheap, but the results are stunning.
This has killed it with a brilliant blue mountainscape making it the header for the bed also. The bright colours make a feature for the room. Curtains have also been used to make a den, keeping with the colour scheme.
