Project New Home is one of life’s biggest turning points, when we can turn our Pinterest mood boards into reality and let our daily lives start afresh. Exciting as it sounds, parents, and even parents-to-be will tell you that this milestone takes a deeper definition for them.
True enough, having young kids in the picture sure does raise the stakes. Because it’s the home where your little one will be spending their formative years in, it’s all the more important that it’s not only kid-proofed, but that they have a space within that is cute, cosy, and decked to their fancy such that it is their no. 1 comfort zone.
To get the ball rolling, here are 7 online home and decor stores for kids in Singapore that parents can peruse around for ideas to beautify their kids’ room.
1. Piccolo House – Teepee bunk bedsImage credit: @piccolohousesg, Piccolo House
Many families would have camping – or glamping – on their list of school holiday activities, until a good handful of them ditch the idea for fear of its lack of comfort and convenience.
Without breaking a sweat, bring the experience home with the help of these Forest Teepee Bed (from $700) from Piccolo House. To help tap into vertical space, consider the Single Loft Bed ($1,500) option which can free up space underneath for storage, or even a mini play area.

Sharing is caring, and siblings get to start young by sharing a bunk bed together with the Natty Bed collection ($1,499).
Unlike the typical configuration where both beds are arranged vertically atop each other, this collection allows you to arrange them in any way that best maximises space. You can even add a bedside shelf to the top bunk to display any bedtime storybooks or mini decorative plants.

2. FLEXA Singapore – Scandi-inspired desks & matching play sets
It’s no secret that Scandi decor blazes the court in many homes, especially for those with youngins in tow. Apart from its minimalist aesthetic that rests easy on the eye, FLEXA Singapore is one brand that designs furniture that is highly functional and safe to use – crucial factors when there are children in mind.

FLEXA Singapore understands the assignment; their Evo Study Desks (from $1,200) can have their height, as well as their tilting angle adjusted in any way that best suits their comfort and task. Pair it up with their ergonomic Novo Study Chair ($890), which is also height-adjustable, and comes with lockable wheels that work on most flooring.

The masak-masak phase is a rite of passage to most of our childhoods, which is why FLEXA Singapore has matching playsets like The Kitchen ($399), and even The Workbench ($499) for future Handy Manny’s out there.

3. Kuhl Home – 4-in-1 themed convertible beds
As parents feel more exhausted by their responsibilities, one thing that’s music to their ears is when they come across products that are multi-functional. And Kuhl Home doesn’t just stop at your usual 2-in-1, or even 3-in-1.
In fact, their Lifetime Kidsroom themed beds ($1,790) are nifty 4-in-1s; by adjusting the height of the ledges and making use of it to connect more compartments, you can easily convert a single bed into a bunk or loft bed.
It’s even possible to add storage shelves to the top bunk or make the frames taller, simply by buying the respective parts when you need them. This makes the design sustainable, as you can easily switch things up when your child grows, or when their needs evolve.

4. Deer Industries – Colourful wall decor, rugs & duvet covers
iPad time ideally includes educational Youtube channels and cartoon shows, so it’s no surprise if your child grows to be obsessed with Paw Patrol, Peppa Pig, or any other animal character. If your child wants to bring that into real life by turning home into a zoo, parents can turn to Deer Industries with their animal and botanical-inspired decor.
Their 3D wall decor and sculptures from Studio ROOF ($34.90) not only match well with kids’ bedrooms, it can also be hung at different parts of the house to make it look more fun and vibrant.

5. Decordinary – Pretty wallpaper & mini rattan furniture
Kids love it when their room is painted in their favourite colour, so you can imagine their excitement when they see a pretty mural painted on their wall.
Even if you can’t style a room to save your life, purchasing a wallpaper can help you jazz up your space effortlessly, like the Classic Dino Wallpaper ($193.50) or the Classic Jungle Mural Wallpaper ($420) from Decordinary.

The home reno process can leave you with a bunch of pet peeves, with the presence of awkward gaps being one that frustrates many. It’s too big for your bed or desk, yet too small to fit a new piece of furniture in. That is, until you see these Maxtrix Corner Beds (from $2,612).
Perfectionist parents need no longer worry, as you can tailor your kids a bed that will fit the dimensions of their room to a T. You get to specify what size you’d like each bed to be (single, super-single, or queen), and whether the frame should be panelled or slatted.

The Cleik Convertible Baby Bed ($499) is another proof of the store’s versatility. All you need to do is remove one of the cot’s panels to convert it into a toddler bed. Plus, there’s a mini cabinet fitted into the bed, making it a convenient place to store your baby essentials, or toys.
