A playroom can be a fun, lively environment for children. It can act as a great spot for them to play with their toys, enjoy art & craft or play video games among many other activities. Before creating a play area, it’s vital to consider any safety requirements. Potential hazards include dangling electrical wires, window blind cords and plastic or packaging. It is best to keep these out of reach. As for the likes of toys, magnets, trampolines and art supplies, you should check whether they are suitable for the ages of your children and decide if they are safe enough to feature in a playroom.
You also need to choose a location with enough space. Even a small spare room could prove suitable if enough furniture, items and appliances are cleared out. Children storage units and canvas boxes are easy and useful ways to store items in a playroom. You don’t want units that look too out of place. Picking colourful storage units can add to the playful appearance of the room. A laundry basket or a wooden chest could be used for storing toys.
Painting the walls with bright, vibrant colours can provide a juvenile backdrop to the room. Primary colours are especially suitable since they have been proven to stimulate the development of children’s brains and eyesight. Another interesting combination is black, white, pink & yellow as is aqua, fuchsia & lavender. Soft greens can also offer a vibrant and refreshing look to the room.
Other ways to redecorate the room include hanging up posters such as those of your children’s favourite movies and cartoons or/and any of their drawings. In terms of the flooring, one of the best options is a suitably coloured carpet. The price for fitting carpet is around £100 to £200 for a single room.
There are many ways you can light up a playroom effectively. This will ensure that the bright colours of the room are really brought to life. Bright LED ceiling lighting is one of the best and most obvious ways this can be achieved. Lamps and modular lights are also some worth considering as additional lighting options. You also want to think about the external appearance of the lights. To name a few, cloud lamps, balloon pendant lights and cartoonish ceiling lights are some examples of how lighting designs can fit in well in a playroom.
Additional instalments that would suit a playroom include bean bags, children’s desks & tables, children’s wardrobes and a play tent.
