Designing the perfect playroom for your kids takes time and planning, but once it’s done it will bring you hours of quiet time in the rest of your house.
Isn’t that worth it! There is an actual formula you can follow to make sure you create an environment that entices your kiddies to want to play and play and play.
This doesn’t necessarily have to cost an arm and a leg. This can be done by choosing the right kid’s furniture first, then getting the fun stuff at discounted rates at flea markets, garage sales or thrift shops and setting up the room in just a way that your kids will want to spend hours in there.
Write a List of your Kid’s Favorite Hobbies: Does your child like to draw, paint, play music, do puppet shows, play board games, do puzzles, play sports, watch TV and play video games etc… Make this list very extensive to include everything your child enjoys doing.
Now that you have a list of hobbies and things that match, it’s time to consider your child’s comfort. First, assess the room size. If it’s large then you can create specific play stations around the room which is actually the best way to set-up a playroom to really encourage lots of playtime. If the room is a little smaller, be creative and create a few separate play areas combining several hobbies. In a larger space, make one corner dedicated to art, another to music, another to reading, another to puppet shows and entertaining and so on.
