A child’s environment is known to have profound effects on how he or she grows into an adult. One of these environments is their playroom. Thus, being a family with kids, you should consider transforming an extra room into a dedicated space where your child can safely play and explore their imagination.
If you consider having a playroom for your child but have no idea how to decorate it, here are some design tips and tricks you can take advantage of to build the playroom he or she will enjoy.
#1. Make use of soft mats or padded carpets for flooring.
It’s all about protecting your kids from injuries brought by accidental trips or falls. It’s also a safe landing spot and encourages playfulness, balance, strength, coordination, and flexibility among children.
#2. Utilize bright, playful paints and add colorful pieces of art.
Kids want to see more colors, identify more solid hues, and increase the brightness of the playroom. Art pieces can also invigorate space and create a sense of playfulness in children.
#3. Install a swing.
You can use net swings, typically padded wood swings, and bungees to help kids with their sensory integration and stimulation.
#4. Organize your kid’s stuff in storage bins.
While it allows you to locate your kid’s stuff, it also protects them from choking, especially with storing their toys, and avoids unwanted accidents brought by unorganized kid’s objects.
#5. Arrange and organize kid’s toys and materials.
Let your kids know where they can find their toys or materials that they can use. Organizing them will also encourage cleanliness and orderliness in them as well.
#6. Take advantage of child-themed modern furniture.
Aside from its playfulness, child-themed modern furniture pieces add aesthetic appeal to their playful and encourage kids and parents to bond together. Upholstered lounge chairs also protect them from scrapes or injuries too.
#7. Install fixtures for physical playrooms.
It encourages mobility in children and develops their bone and muscle coordination through physical activities offered by bungees, ceiling monkey bars, wall climbers, and even ladders.
#8. Give it access to the outside environment.
While we wanted our kids to stay safe inside our homes, they also need the outside environment to develop cognition, physical coordination, and a sense of respect and appreciation for the environment. If the playroom is located on the first floor, add a door that leads to the backyard or a sandbox.
