Kids' rooms can be tricky--how do you plan a room that has to constantly evolve along with its occupant? Not only does it have to be age-appropriate and functional, but it also has to be child-friendly (no toxic materials), safe (no sharp edges and low railings), and inspiring enough to rouse their developing minds (read: not boring). Where to begin?

A kid's room should be nurturing, playful, holistic, relaxing, fun, educational, durable, and flexible. Incorporate these into your child's bedroom, and you've got an ideal environment for your precious little ones.

From infancy to pre-school age to the tween stage, this gallery will make it easier for you to come up with a room that embodies all these characteristics and that will grow together with your child.
