Houzz contributor Michelle Gage looks at nine design elements that can transform any room into functional playroom for kids in years to come.
- Be sure to use appropriate surfaces for all imaginations and types of play. Include a table for coloring, but be sure to leave enough floor space for building blocks and other surface toys. While carpets can provide a cozy atmosphere, they are prone to stains and involve a lot of upkeep. Suggest to your client that they use area rugs throughout the room as they are easier to replace.
- Tapping into a child’s artistic creativity, suggest leaving an empty wall for your client’s children to display their artwork. This element adds a personal touch to any playroom.
- Design the room with dedicated zones for specific tasks like a reading nook or a table for doing homework. Sectioning off a playroom like this can accommodate siblings of any age.
