Nest: Tips for creating a playroom for your kids


Every kid deserves to learn through play. Creating the ideal little playroom in your home will help your little ones unleash their imagination in a safe, fun space which is dedicated to them alone. With clever organisation and lots of storage, a playroom can be an inviting space – and will also house all those toys and crafts you have been finding all around the house.

Here we share some top tips for creating a functional play area with lots of appeal:   Add a rug Incorporate a beautiful yet functional rug into your child’s playroom. Now only will this look and feel great but it could also serve a practical role in helping to diminish noise in the area and aid in protecting the quality of your floors. Area rugs can also easily be replaced and washed after they get soiled by little feet. Fun interactive play mats and vibrant rug designs are available to suit every décor need – look for a style to complement the overall look of the room. Kid-friendly furniture Choose sturdy, durable pieces for the playroom. Opt for materials that can easily be wiped clean and stay away from furnishings that readily collect dust and stains. Opt for plastic or wooden kids’ furniture that are the ideal size and height for your little one.

Dedicated zones Divide your room into areas to accommodate different forms of play. Table and chairs may be a great spot for crafts, but be sure to have enough open floor space for playing with puzzles, cars and other toys. You could also create a quiet little reading nook with bookshelf and cosy couch. Think of what your kids would love to do and how you can incorporate this into the space.

Storage and organisation How did one little person accumulate so many toys? I think this is the question most asked by parents around the globe. Do not fret. Now that you have a dedicated play area in your home, ensure that the room contains a variety of storage options for all the different sizes of toys and crafts you may own. Plastic containers are great for all your craft supplies and smaller toys. You can also choose in include cabinets, lockers, chests and crates – there are so many innovative storage solutions available today to ensure that every little toy has a home of its own.
