Back when we were kids, our dreams were related to kingdoms, castles, bands, and superheroes and we used those as our room themes. Things didn’t change much since, as long as we exclude the vast array of products and designs that make themed rooms a piece of cake.
If our princess bedroom décor consisted of pink walls and several Barbie dolls, nowadays princess bedrooms are full of amazing details and unlimited accessory choices. As a parent, you can find tons of breathtaking princess bedroom ideas, be those tree wallpapers, tents, or canopy beds. Whatever the princess wants, you can make it happen!

There is rarely a little girl out there that wouldn’t like feeling like a princess, namely being surrounded by pink walls and fluffy objects and wearing a large ball gown, which is why they all fantasize of the room that would be a part of their fairy tale. Luckily, designing a princess themed room has never been easier, and we are here to show you how.
Most of the details will simply impose themselves, in particular large princess beds, pink and pinkish walls, castle wallpapers, ivory satin, furry pillows, and tones of stuffed toys.
The challenge here is to select accessories the princess won’t be bored with or overgrow after few months, and that refers particularly to larger beds and closets, homework desks, and book shelves whose usability will last.
The more you invest in the future of the room the less there will be to think about later, so try to make all due considerations. Next, we are going to invite you to check several awesome princess room ideas and design practices we collated from all around the world.
Your princess’s bed
Beds should be your priority, having in mind that they are the centerpiece of every room, and that accompanies by a princess theme they’ll probably never go out of style. Princesses were and will be girls’ role models and symbol of perfection, which means that having a fairy tale castle will make them just as happy as you want them to be.

You can turn their dreams into reality by turning their room into a fantasy haven, making sure they will have all the things necessary to feel good inside. It may take a while to achieve that, but it is totally worth of your time.
As we mentioned before, the princess bed is the centerpiece of the room, so begin redecorating by choosing a fairy tale-inspired element. You can go with an amazing, over sized trundle bed which gives the room just as much Parisian flair as it takes to turn it into a castle.
A solid green and striped pink bed crown will add the room the regal touch it needs without necessarily breaking the bank. Attach those behind the bed’s headboard, and your little princess will love it!

The logic of princess beds is the larger the better and that makes bunk beds a great idea. Thanks to the extra space, your little girl can hug her toys while sleeping. Now, tell me about the princess that would refuse that!
Disney has a lot to do with girls’ perception of princesses and castles, so why not starting with a Disney-inspired theme? Do some research to find out who your daughter’s favorite character is, and put large wallpaper with it for her to enjoy.

The fun room
Children’s room simply wouldn’t make sense if they were not enjoyable, so make sure there is enough playing space and plenty of the toys your girl likes. For instance, you can add a slide or a small trampoline to make sure her and her friends will love spending time there. Note, however, that extra toys and gadgets require extra storage space, so add few hidden drawers in case.

With the budget and the time needed to create an imposing princess room, you could also consider a genuine castle bed. Designers offer many creative pieces, including such that have two towers on the side to use as shelving systems and nightstands, and an overdone headboard that will immediately attract attention.
A castle bed doesn’t always have to be large – if you handle the details with care, your princess won’t mind the size.

The best thing about castle beds is that they are all unique, and there is an unlimited array of structures, shapes, and sizes for you to choose from. They are also offered on two levels (a bottom and a top bunk connected with a slide/stairway), or genuinely belong to a small, semi-open castle the princess can use to play.
Every kid’s bedroom will be a successful project if you can guess what the kid genuinely wants, which is why we have nothing against bold and striking bedrooms for active and creative owners. For instance, you can attach black-and-white rectangular canopies on the ceiling, with a tufted headboard soaring up to meet them.

It is a very modern solution, but you can ‘soften’ it with a couple of traditional, tied back drapes (preferably white).
It is not difficult to guess that little princess like to play in doll houses, but how about giving them the chance to live inside one? This will be easy to achieve with a bunk bed, where the girl will have an upper bank for sleeping, and a lower, daylong one to play on and to store toys.
This type of beds is always unique and turns into a girl’s favorite memory, which is why it usually stays in the family for generations to come.

Classic canopy beds
There is something extremely feminine and romantic about canopy beds, both in the case of creative girls and dreamy ladies. Plus, these beds are commonly associated with elegance and sophistication, and they never go out of style.
There are many ways in which you can transform a classic canopy bed into a princess one, but most of the time it will be enough to attach a small canopy to the wall, and to decorate it with pink ribbons.
To keep the décor cohesive, make sure the canopy matches the curtains, or at least resembles them. Still, try to preserve some diversity in the room, as children appreciate this way more than they appreciate balance and perfect order.

Your little girl’s room is where here entire Disney-related fantasy comes to life, so make sure you accessorize it with all necessary details. Make sure her favorite dolls are at her fingertips, with all dresses and accessories for her to make them perfect. Few beautiful wall hooks will also help decorate the room, but also organize her clothes.
Who said that princess rooms are exclusively pink? In fact, they can radiate several colorful vibes to make the princess cheerful, and to support the girly and perky note of her small kingdom.

Shared princess rooms
If decorating a room for two girls, balance the space with matching beds, and add extra storage. The same as before, try to make the place look chic and glamorous, paying attention to details both girls would prefer.
Princess themed rooms are vintage by default, and that’s due to their architecture just as it is to your good taste. Thereof, if you have a rounded room or one with a high, valued ceiling, you’ve got yourself a winner.

Little princesses who love going to the beach deserve a coast-inspired room to enjoy. Plus, beach-inspired rooms don’t take extra time or cash to make – all it will take is to hang white drapes on the canopy frame, and anchor the sides with swaths of pink to add the princess vibe.

With the right ideas, princess inspired rooms don’t have to cost much, at least for those who have playful designs in mind, the right motifs for the theme, and the right tools to complete their mission. Most girls would be perfectly satisfied with playful and chic details such as pink walls, stuffed toys, and frilly beds.
Remember – your choice is unlimited, and you get to change everything including the classic color palette. Think of what the girl really likes, and half of the work will already be done.
Princess rooms will never go out of style, at least not for as long as girls identify themselves with Cinderella and dream of living in a castle. It is because of this that you should give them a fantasy room with a whimsical touch, where they can sleep, play, and dream at the same time.
