Tips and ideas for cool kids’ bedrooms

For part five of our “Essential facilities we know guests love” series, we focus on cool kids’ bedrooms. The days when bedrooms were just for sleeping, and so, therefore, required little planning, are long gone! 80% of OVO Network bookings include kids. During school holiday periods, that percentage increases to virtually 100%.

In this post, we showcase some of our favourite kids’ rooms, which have been cleverly designed to make good use of the space whilst maintaining a fun atmosphere for younger guests. Take a look at our top picks…

Chalet Alti: Three single beds at different heights

Cool kids' bedrooms: Three beds and the play space at Chalet Alti.

With games, books and toys supplied by the owner, this bedroom at Chalet Alti has plenty of room and toys to keep little ones occupied. The space underneath the bunk bed also doubles up well as a great play space or room to store suitcases and bags.

Chalet Charmar: Triple kids’ bedroom

Chalet Colombine: Bespoke fitted beds with storage

The owners of Chalet Colombine have made clever use of the space provided in their kids’ rooms.

Overlapping bunks as shown on the left create a fun and playful structure, with in-built cupboards for storing personal items.

The dorm shown on the right is a great example of how to create a sociable space for younger guests, whilst adding separating walls for privacy.

Chalet Manoe: A dorm room pull-out beds
