With winter closing in and your kids being forced to play indoors, having the perfect playroom to enjoy themselves and express their creativity might be the best option for your family. It can be hard to keep children entertained without letting them explore and make a mess. These simple tips and ideas are open for suggestion and can be used to create the best playroom that fits your family’s style!
Choose a Theme Or Design For The Playroom
Having a theme or color palette for your playroom allows your children to thrive in an environment they feel comfortable in. A theme or color palette could be based on your child’s interests, such as outer space, superheroes, or, simpler yet, your child’s favorite color(s). If the room is used for more than one child, try to find a theme that suits the needs of both kids. Perhaps a jungle theme or under the sea, where multiple children can easily relate to the design. It also helps them with their imagination and lets them have some creativity and choice in their home.
Take Advantage of the Space
Depending on the space you have, it’s essential to use the entire room to your advantage. Perhaps the walls could be covered in chalk paint so the kids can scribble and write on them whenever they want, or you could install a small climbing wall to get their energy out while staying indoors during the Minnesota winter.
Use furniture that can also be used as a stabilizer for a fort, or have a couch that doubles as a bed for the many sleepovers your children will have. Storage shelves are your best friend in these situations as they can keep the cluttered space more organized and can hold all of the toys your children play with. It also can teach your children how to clean up their own space and easily find it again the next day.
Make The Space Adaptable for Growing Kids
As your kids grow up, your playroom should grow with them. Make sure to get furniture that is easily suited to many different spaces and looks. Your kids might want a change of theme or paint over the years or possibly even want to design the space for themselves. Keep the space open for creativity!
Have a Floor That Will Last
A playroom consists of exactly what it sounds like, a lot of playing. This can lead to your floor taking a beating.
