Roundup: Older Children's Rooms

Roundup: Older Children's Rooms

Now that the crib is gone, or the family bed is a thing of the past, creating a bedroom for your older child is an adventure and excursion into unknown lands where *gasp* your child actually has input in what the room looks like. When it was our turn to transform our son's room into a "big boy" room we took our ideas, his suggestions and came up with some fun results.

If you're coming close to the older child bedroom remodel, here are ten rooms we've gathered up which feature spaces for older children -- ranging in ages from 4 to 19. It's an eclectic group that shows us there is no definitive way to decorate an older child's place but one constant is certain: fun!
