An ideal playroom is a bright, energizing place, filled with color and lots of light. It should also reflect your children's interests and personalities. Think about the colors and activities your children gravitate toward and use them as a basis for your design. Whether your play area is part of a larger space, such as a family room or kitchen, or its own room, make it a vibrant spot for growing and exploring.
Even if your play space is a section of your living room or kitchen, paying attention to your children's interests will make it feel special. Your children's favorite interests and activities – whether games, fairy tales, animals or adventure stories – can work as inspiration for the space.
Maybe a favorite family pastime, such as sailing or biking, will lead you to a theme. A mural, a giant world map, or stenciled letters and numbers are all great ways to add a playful dimension to the walls. Reinforce your theme with art and accessories.
