Designing the right children’s playroom can be a tricky affair at times. There are several different ingredients that you need to get right to create the perfect playroom. Obviously, every parent wishes to create that magical setting that they can proudly call the world’s best playroom. Yet, in reality, creating the perfect kids’ playroom is not just about the ‘wow factor’ alone. Safety goes hand-in-hand and creating the right blend between activity spaces and plush seating is a challenge in itself.

Creative Themes and Vibrant Colors
The playroom is a lot more than just a place where kids spend a few hours in the day while you are busy with your chores. It is a space that allows them to tap into their energy, creativity and imagination. If you ever do spend some time with them in the playroom, you will quickly realize why this little nook is so essential for their complete development. The playroom is one place in urban homes where kids are allowed to be themselves without any hindrances! Make sure that this space is as creative and beautiful as possible.

There are a variety of themes that you can choose for the playroom. These can vary between the cool nautical approach to a Disney princess-themed room that your little girl would adore. Irrespective of the theme you have, make sure there is ample color around at all times. Combine vibrant shades with chic geometric patterns to usher in a fun and playful vibe.

Maximize Storage and Shelf Space
Storage space is an important aspect of the kids’ playroom. If you are not careful about providing ample space to tuck away all that mess and those mountains of toys when your little ones are done with them, then you are in big trouble. Always add a lovely shelf to the playroom with plenty of space. Modern bookshelves are great in this regard. Fill them with colorful containers or even cool woven wicker baskets that are both elegant and efficient. Custom-designed benches with hidden storage compartments and sleek storage ladders tucked away in the corner also seem appropriate for the playroom.

Make sure that every addition is secure and safe for the children to be around. Do not hang anything precariously or stack baskets in a fashion here they can be toppled. Play items that double up as storage units are a fun way to teach the kids about the virtues of putting stuff away in a neat manner. Closed cabinets allow you to turn the rooms into an additional guest space or bedroom when needed at some point in the future.

Combinations of Spaces and Zones
Planning for the playroom should ideally start with its placement. This aspect is far more essential if your kids are very young. One of the wonderful ideas on here is a home gym that allows you to keep an eye on your little ones as they have fun in the playroom. Open playroom designs and floor plans are becoming far more popular as they are both safe and easy to incorporate. One can use multicolored rugs, carpet tiles and a special ceiling to demarcate the space and make it feel far more special than the reminder of the house.

If you are going for an exclusive playroom, use the height of the room well by placing a climbing wall, or a series of ladders that are safe for the kids. Creating various activity spaces and using the space under the staircase for a stylish playhouse also make the playroom a lot more fun. In case your home or apartment is too small, then combine the playroom design with the kids’ bedroom in an ergonomic fashion.

The most essential component of it all though is the input offered by your kids. Talk to them before you get started with the playroom. Incorporate colors, themes and activities that they want the most while adding your own safety and storage solutions to them. At the end of the day, the playroom is primarily their space!
