Playrooms can mean a room where there are a bunch of toys on the floor. Or it can be a room that literally is a toy! It’s easy to add some decorating accents on the walls of a playroom that can double as activity centers for your little ones to play and learn.
Ideas to excite your children’s imagination and burn up some of their energy include:
- Replacing a carpet with an exercise mat to prevent skinned knees. Not only that, but it’s easier to wipe up spills off a mat than a carpet.
- Install a mirror so they can check out their dance moves as they rock out to some tunes from Julie’s Jukebox.
- Make it easy for your kids to get to their toys—and to put them away. Lower the shelves and cabinets so your little ones don’t have to stretch.
- Try creating a theme room based on your child’s favorite interests. Have fun with it and let your imagination go wild. For instance, if your kids love firefighters, hang a ladder horizontally on the wall to create shelves or hang hubcaps on the wall and use red paint to create a fire truck look.
As you’re creating the walls of your children’s playroom, allow them to make some decisions so they get a real feeling of ownership of the room. And also keep in mind that kids grow up, so you’ll want to choose decorations that can be easily changed.
