Designers seem divided on the dilemma of theme rooms for children. On the 1 hand, they’ll probably outgrow the theme in a couple of decades. On the other hand, they are SO MUCH FUN until they do! Themed rooms for kiddos aren’t limited to bedrooms; playrooms, rec rooms, finished basements and playhouses can all take a theme too.
