Playrooms are a kid’s sanctuary. They have the advantage of separating clutter from a sleeping space. It also allows your child to have personal space in their bedroom and play space for their friends and siblings to share. Not only that, kids’ rooms get destroyed within hours and it is difficult to keep up with. Do yourself and your kids a favor and isolate the chaos, design a playroom.
Open the Floor Space. To maximize the play area, put the furniture around the outer edges of the room, preferably against the wall. This helps to remove tripping hazards as well. The floor will clutter quickly. Bulky furniture in the way makes the clutter seem to appear faster.
Bean bags save space and add comfort. Bean bags can really add some funk to a playroom depending on the patterns. They are also super easy to move in and out of the way without needing to call for help. Bean bags won’t hurt if you fall on or into them. I remember having a blast barricading my playroom door with bean bags. A crazy rug is a must with bean bags.
Small Scale Furniture is a cherished addition to your kids role play. Scaled-down furniture comes in almost any appliance or piece a regular home has. Kitchen sets, drive-thrus, forts, tunnels, stages, and vanity sets provide for almost any scene at playtime. These props will help enrich the imagination and elongate the games. Your kids and their friends will appreciate it.
Reading Corners are important additions to a playroom. This will probably turn into another imaginary game, like school, or the library. It is a smart way to trick kids into learning for fun. Just caution that books need more care than most toys. This can be the section where the beanbags and rug are, but a sofa will work in this area. A bookshelf and lamps will warm this corner up. Reading corners also provide timid playmates a comfortable transition into playtime and their environment.
Suspended Play Tents are an adventurous room addition that creates dimension and a truly whimsical touch to a playroom. Play tents are light fabric, narrow and hang from the ceiling. These provide areas for secret missions and meetings at playtime. They are great for hide-and-seek and base games. They are lightweight, so non-dangerous to your kids and your ceiling.
Art walls are your best bet for having a functioning wall in a kids room. This can be achieved with chalkboard paint or by giving your kids freedom to paint on the wall. This isn’t as insane as it may sound. Chances are you will need to repaint eventually anyways, and Kilz will cover anything.
Have fun with your kid’s playroom design. Get silly and experiment with new mediums. With some of these room renovations, you can create an entirely nurturing kid zone.
