Playrooms are an amazing place for children to get creative in a welcoming and safe environment. They also allow children express themselves and encourage imaginative play. Most kids love having space all for themselves, other than their rooms. If you have a spare room (or a corner!) in your house, playrooms are great for keeping children busy and neat.
There are so many great ideas on how you can decorate and finish a playroom. One of the easiest ways to make sure kids will love it is to get their opinion. You don’t have to break the budget and choose fancy designs; playrooms just have to be fun. Here, we have gathered 5 simple playroom ideas that you just have to try.
1. Wall storage
Whether playroom theme you choose, one thing is certain – you need a lot of storage space. And if you don’t have enough space for cupboards, here is a simple idea of how to make the most of the available space. Hang hooks and shelves so vertical space is used, too. Consider using soft containers instead of heavy buckets that can cause an injury. All furniture over the knee high should be secured. If your child tries to climb onto the furniture it can easily tip and injure your kid.
Wall storage is a compact and safe way to store toys and books that children can easily reach. Even teens will love the wall storage, so you don’t have to worry about redesigning the playroom in future.
2. Small Tables and Chairs
Even though kids love playing on the floor, they need a table and chairs for drawing, painting and other fun activities. The furniture you choose should have a purpose, so start with the basics. Most kids love to color and write amongst other activities. That’s why they should have ergonomic chairs and tables where they will create works of art. Choose furniture in white or beige, and you will fit into any interior.
3. Funky Wallpaper
Playrooms are a great opportunity to go bold. Children love bright colors and patterns and this is a place where you can go crazy. Do you know what can be better than bright colors? Educational yet fun wallpapers! There are plenty of designs featuring alpha numeric patterns that help kids learn counting and alphabet. If you go for crazy wallpapers, choose a contrasting background and bold furniture.
Children are great explorers and they love adventure, especially when they grow a bit older and start examining the world around them, making discoveries. Turn a floor in a playroom into a place they will want to explore with a themed road mat – it is a perfect item to play with car toys. Encourage this behavior, but don’t forget about safety – unlike rugs on the floor, a playmat gives a safe space to make discoveries and play.
Playmats are convenient because they can be rolled up and stored when you don’t need them. You can also use them as rugs. Add small tables and chairs and the kid will spend hours playing in his playroom.
5. Picture board
Of course, you can stick your child’s paintings everywhere but we think that picture board is a more practical solution. There are different styles of boards and you can choose the one that matches the room decor. Picture board is a great way to make the room more inviting and you can take the pictures off the wall later on.
