You spent so much time getting the baby room just right. But now they’re getting bigger. They’re growing and their needs are different. They want to climb and explore, to touch and create. That means it’s time to ditch the crib and create a space that nurtures their growing minds and bodies. We at Unique Home Building care about your family and want to help you in exactly the way you need it!
So enjoy these helpful tips so you too can remodel your nursery into the perfect playroom.
A child’s playroom is a place of creativity and imagination. It is exciting to envision endless design possibilities as you plan the space, but it is also necessary to consider more practical matters, such as storage and layout. Rather than feeling limited by the many pieces of the playroom puzzle, view the experience as the ultimate design challenge! Creating a space that inspires kids to experience the joys of play is an amazing opportunity for whimsical decor choices. The juxtaposition of children’s motifs with efficient organization can create breathtaking results. As you begin your playroom design quest, don’t forget to consider the interests of your kiddos. Their ideas may spark the inspiration for a winning decor concept, and under your guidance, the room will take flight. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Storage & Layout
As you plan the layout for your playroom, pay attention to the space involved. Is the room large? Will it be shared by multiple children? Or perhaps the “playroom” is a section of the child’s bedroom, making compact living a must. If space is no issue, consider placing storage and seating pieces along the wall and leaving the center of the room free for creative endeavors.
Explore & Discover
Include plenty of table space, as children use tabletop surfaces for activities ranging from arts and crafts to small block building, as well as sensory activities such as play dough.
Rest & Recover
If the play area will be a part of the child’s bedroom rather than a separate room in the house, there are plenty of layout options to ponder. For example, with the bed taking up a portion of the wall space, there may not be room for tables along the edge of the room. A table in the center of the floor is a wonderful alternative. Additionally, you might consider having another corner of the room just for reading and relaxing. Perhaps a rocking chair, some pillows, a rug and a book shelf would be good.
Those are some simple ideas. Start there and move on to decor and accents. This is a fun time and we want you to have the best.
