Up, Up, and Away!

As kids, we all dreamt of having the ability to fly. This airplane bed puts a fun spin on that fantasy. Fully equipped with a ceiling covered in clouds, suitcase storage and a world map mural, this bedroom prepares kids for any adventure they might dream up. Design by Dahlia Mahmood

Rustic Retreat

This amazing barn-style playroom is sleepover heaven. The space houses six built-in bunk beds with ample room leftover for games and entertainment. The design uses the original home's farmhouse background for style inspiration; the frame and rails of the bunk beds were made from antique barn beams.

This Room Rocks

Welcome to the bedroom every kid (and many a grown up) dreams of having. Decked out in cool contemporary style, the space features a gray and white palette with graphic print wallpaper, bold lime green accents and — wait for it — a climbing wall.

Crafty Converted Attic

Every inch of space was creatively used in this converted-attic playroom. In addition to clever designs like built-in desks and efficient storage solutions, this 8-foot area of dead space was transformed into a felt activity wall.

Secret Fort

In this inventive kid's room, a tucked-away loft serves as an exciting (and peaceful) hideaway to work on homework or art projects.

Whimsical Playroom

Chango and Co. created every child's dream play space in this expansive playroom. Floor mattresses line one wall and are topped with playful throw pillows for crashing, a teepee provides a place for dreaming, and rope swings hang from the ceiling for extra fun. A bold Swiss cross pattern livens up the walls, and black trim highlights the architectural features of the room.

A Pirate's Life

This pirate-inspired room has everything necessary to set a course for adventure — from a treasure map mural to a rustic pirate-ship bed. Design by RMSer chelly32

Fit for Twin Royalty

These twin cribs look like they came straight out of a fairytale palace. The ornate wood details and elegantly draped canopies put other cribs to shame. Image courtesy of PoshTots

Private Pink Lofts

Sharing a room with a sibling can be a drag. But these vibrant pink and orange loft beds give two girls their own getaways. Courtesy of Nicole Feliciano, of

Movie Magic

Inspired by the Disney film Finding Nemo, this room surrounds kids in a sea of beloved characters. It even includes a bed that resembles the film's surfer-dude turtle, Crush.

Welcome to the Jungle

Make Room for Muppets

This kids bedroom from HGTV Dream Home 2014 is inspired by the Muppets. While sticking to a sophisticated color palette of red, white and black, this room bursts with kid-approved details like Muppets accessories, a curtained-off play area and a TV for each bunk!

Enchanted Forest

With a whimsical tree, a carriage-shaped table and a custom castle bed complete with a slide, this bedroom feels like it's straight out of a fairytale.

Castle in the Clouds

By lofting this bed, the rest of the room is free for playtime. To add another element of fun to the castle-shaped loft, kids can come and go via ladder or slide. Photo courtesy of live from IKEA FAMILY

Draw on the Walls

Behind the bookcases, a secret hiding place in this little girl's playroom is the perfect escape to let creativity run wild. A chalkboard accent wall allows endless possibilities to draw and decorate.

Twice the Teepees, Twice the Fun

This handsomely paneled playroom is all decked out for fun. If the party runs late — and if the parents say it’s OK — the lighted teepees will accommodate a sleepover.

Storybook Nursery

With a crib modeled after a carriage, this storybook nursery is perfect for a princess-in-training. The room includes other charming touches like wallpaper with a toy block motif, quilted carpeting and an adorable woodland mural. Image courtesy of PoshTots

Space-Saving Secret Bed

Hiding a bed beneath a trap door is a fun and unique idea for a kid's room. Doing so takes advantage of every inch of space and allows the bedroom to double as a playroom. Photo courtesy of live from IKEA FAMILY

Groovy Tween Room

With a touch of English inspiration, this bright bedroom and its psychedelic mural will stay cool well into your kid's teen years. Design by Christine Thompson

Vibrant Girl's Room

Who wouldn't love to spend hours playing in this beautiful and vibrant bedroom? (Fun fact: The garlands, bed skirt, and wall art are made out of duct tape!)

Under the Sea

No detail was spared in transforming this media playroom into a deep-sea adventure. From the shell-shaped chairs to elaborate mural, this room caters to a kid's dream of living beneath the waves.

It's Showtime!

You little one's inner star can emerge on this petite stage. It's the perfect setting for any performance a child could dream up and the nearby dress-up closet is handy for pre-show prep.

Fun in the Forest

This vibrant woodland playroom is designed for hours of fun. Between a slide, activity desk, and swing suspended from a funky column-turned-tree, this room encourages playfulness and creativity. Co-architects: Juan Manuel Rodriguez and Jose David Jimenez.

Pretty in Pink

A mini tent serves as a cute clubhouse and venue for indoor campouts. Plus, it beautifully coordinates with the sweet pink tones of the bedding and hanging birdcage.

Candy Colors

A giant painted gumball machine pops against the vibrant orange walls of this lively playroom. Along with the wall color, the artistic paper lantern fixture, chevron rug, and art table are enough to inspire hours of creative play.

Indoor Treehouse

Both kid-friendly and sophisticated, this bedroom from HGTV Green Home 2014 brings the outdoors indoors. The many green-toned accents are meant to look like a lush landscape from the birds-eye view of this lofted hangout. A handy bucket makes snack deliveries fun and convenient.

Cute and Bubbly

The open floor plan of this shared bedroom means ample room for siblings to play, hangout and swing in their futuristic bubble chairs.

Rainy Day Escape

This island playroom offers space to gather with friends or take a nap. Anchored into the ceiling, the twin beds are designed to gently sway as coastal breezes blow through the space. A Ping-Pong table and a flat-screen TV are perfect for passing the time on rainy beach days.

Reading Room

Playoffice, a design firm based in Madrid, created this "Reading Net" for kids (or adults). Here, the net is suspended in a luxurious two-story library.
