Most children love having a place to play aside from their bedroom. If you have an extra room, it’s a smart move to give your kids a space to play. Decorating a playroom for your kids can be a lot of fun! But you still have to put in some important considerations for the playroom to be child-friendly not only when it comes to design and decor.
When decorating a child’s playroom, you have the freedom to do a lot of fun stuff, especially that children do not need expensive pieces to enjoy. This means you would not be going beyond your budget to give your kids the playroom they’ll cherish their whole childhood years. If you’re looking for ideas, here are some of our suggestions:
Safety always comes first
The first thing to consider in your kid’s playroom is safety. No matter how old your kid is, children can get very rowdy – making way for some accidents. Your job is to prevent these accidents by taking the proper steps for precaution. For young kids, do not forget to child-proof outlets, cabinet doors, and stay away from lead paint. For your storage, look for soft storage boxes. Your furniture should also be sturdy. If possible, secure your cabinets to the walls.
Give your kid the freedom to choose the color palette
Remember, the room you are working on is a playroom, so one of the primary things you should think about is whether or not your kids will like it. To make sure of this, ask for suggestions from them and work on that.
Make sure there’s enough storage
When it comes to furniture, the one basic piece that a playroom needs is sufficient storage for toys. Next up is a good set of chairs and tables for all of your kids’ activities such as drawing and tea time. Make sure these furniture are durable and child-proof. Pick tables and chairs with rounded edges.
Display your kid’s artworks
Instead of hanging the usual painting and photograph, start framing your kid’s artworks – even the doodles – to make your kid feel that the room is his/hers to use. Not only will this look extra cute, it will also boost your kid’s confidence even at a young age.
