Whether you have a newborn or a teen, a child’s bedroom should be a space where they feel secure, comfortable and inspired. However, creating a well-thought-out bedroom that will last them a decade or more can be a huge challenge.

Sticks and Wombat’s auctioneer Daniel D’Assisi always advises to be conscious of the longevity of your design: If you plan on staying in the home for an extended period of time, selecting styling elements that can grow with your child into their teen years is important and will save you from having to restyle as quickly as your child grows up.

Here are some common mistakes to avoid when it comes to planning your child’s space.

If, like the contestants on the Block, you foresee yourself selling in the near future, Daniel D’Assisi recommends focusing solely on saleability: It is important not to polarise potential future purchasers by styling your bedroom in an obvious gender or age specific fashion to maximise the suitability of your property to a cross section of families and in turn improving your potential sale outcome.
