How to Create the Perfect Playroom for Your Kids


While children may not be interested in the finer details of your home renovation plans, there is one room that is guaranteed to pique their interest; the playroom.

Incorporating a playroom into your home is an excellent idea and one that the kids will love.

Introducing a playroom to your home takes it to another level.

Instead of being just a family home, you will create a home that is designed for the whole family.

The difference being the fact that it is a space that meets the needs of every member of the family unit, and improves the functionality of your home.

While you may be committed to the idea of creating a playroom, you may feel uncertain about how to go about designing one.

This is where the skills of architects who are experienced in playroom design become a considerable asset.

Working with an architect will help you to bring the ideas that you have floating around and develop them into a cohesive plan.

Here are some pointers to help inspire you on your journey to creating the perfect playroom for your kids:

Avoid Fads

Does your child have a cartoon character that they are obsessed with right now?

Most kids do, which makes it all the more tempting to create a playroom that is decorated floor to ceiling with your child’s favourite character.

This is fine if you plan to redecorate the room every six months because as all parents know kids grow out of one favourite character and move onto the next in the blink of an eye.

Avoiding characters and novelty type room accessories will ensure that you have a playroom that the kids won’t get bored of, and really want to spend their time in.

Make Practical Choices

While a playroom may be designed to incorporate lots of fun, it also needs to be practical.

You want to keep the playroom looking good for as long as possible, so there needs to be some practical choices made to keep the room looking at its best.

You may choose to install a wooden floor rather than a carpet, to minimise any damage caused by paint, colouring pens, and food and drink spillages.

Essentially, the playroom needs to be designed to look great, be easy to maintain, and ensure that your kids stay safe while they are playing in it.

Don’t Skimp on Style

If playrooms make you think of loud primary colours and poorly painted murals on the walls, it is time to re-think your idea of a playroom.

Nowadays, playrooms can incorporate stylish features which enables them to integrate with the rest of the house seamlessly.

There are many gorgeous playroom options out there that combine fun features with natural materials such as wood.

These designs make for a fun, yet design-led interior that every member of the family will love.

Creating a perfect playroom is all about marrying together fun and a stylish design that will grow with your child over many years.
