Regardless of the age of your child, it is likely that they will benefit from a playroom. This will mean that all of their toys are in one place, making it far easier for them to play either on their own or with friends. It will also make it far easier to tidy up. Of course, getting them to tidy up is a habit you want to encourage; otherwise, you will find yourself tidying up after them until they move out.
However, when creating your kid’s perfect playroom – especially when they are young – there are some factors that you may want to consider.
#1 Incorporate plenty of storage options into your design
Although you have set aside a designated room for your kids to have a playroom, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you will be ok with it looking like a bombsite when it is not in use. In order to promote tidying up time, you should incorporate a lot of storage into the room.
Having bookcases and designated storage facilities for different toys or dressing up outfits could make it far easier for your kids to tidy up. If you make tidying up a game, it can be combined into part of their fun time.
#2 Invest in soft furnishings
With your kids running around and having fun, it is important to invest in soft furnishings. Bean bags are the perfect option for a playroom as there are no hard edges and can be dragged around the room as need be. Also, another practicality of the bean bag is there are plenty of removable and washable covers for bean bags in an array of different colors.
This makes it perfect sense for a room where sticky fingers and mucky fun, such as finger painting, will take place.
#3 Provide a tactile environment
A lot of kids enjoy a tactile environment, learning through touch as well as sound, sight, and smell. Providing your kids with plenty of different tactile fabrics and materials around their playroom will enhance their enjoyment of it. If you include areas that will make a sound when pushed, squeezed, or stepped on, you will see your kid and any friends exploring every nook and cranny in order to discover them all.
#4 Add plenty of color to décor
In order to help with the visual aspect of the room, you should make it bright and cheerful. These colors will stimulate your kids’ minds. Don’t stop at just the walls, either. Remember that there is also a ceiling and a floor that can be utilized to make a fun and colorful space. If you would rather keep it calm, include color in your kids’ accessories or their storage areas.
When planning your kid’s new playroom, you will have to ensure that you are catering to their requirements. Adding storage for all of their items will help them learn to tidy up. Introducing textures will enhance their experience of the room and even more so if you include sounds in various areas. Ensure that you furnish the room with soft furniture that can be easily cleaned and add plenty of color to make the area fun.
