Have you already got young children, or are planning on starting a young family? Creating a playroom can help to alleviate parental stress and organise the kids mess. It is a fun retreat which the kids can call their own, and a place parents can keep childish belongings tucked away. Playrooms can be used everyday of the year, when company is visiting, and especially on those cold and rainy days. By designating an appropriate room or space, and having the right sort of organisation, you can make a delightful playroom that is both functional and fun!
Choose a room, preferably with a window. Make sure the room is bright and cheerful by providing adequate lighting. Recessed lighting would be a great choice, and the main focal light could be a stylish pendent light.
Provide shelving, for books, games and toys. Place the most favourite items within easy reach. Drawers and baskets are great organisational tools for a playroom, helping the children to keep things tidy.
Provide a table and chairs for the children to work on their arts and crafts. Extra seating such as bean bags or a couch is great for creating a reading nook.
Pick a nice bright colour scheme, be creative, remembering that the room is meant to be FUN!!
Carpet or foam tiles are great for kids because they are soft and the can be changed out if stained.
