Designing Your Children’s Playroom

You’ve heard that good things come in small packages, but when it comes to flex space, we think that the best things come in the largest rooms… If you remember the fun of playing with your favorite toys when you were a kid, then you’re going to love the flex options available in many of our homes to design a beautiful playroom!

At Beacon Homes, we build the bones of your home, but you create its heart and soul — with a playroom specifically designed for your children to make some of their best memories, your home becomes brighter each and every day. Are you ready to surprise your children with their very own oasis? Below are a few of our favorite designing tips to make this room the happiest place on earth!

Kids Playroom Design Ideas

Toy Storage: First thing’s first, the star of the show: TOYS! Of course, no playroom is complete without storage for all of the games, art supplies, and stuffed animals that your children love. Storage options that can be placed against the wall maximize space (while also looking super cool and modern)! An ideal sectional has a lot of cubbies or bins for keeping everything organized.

Fun-Sized Furniture: The only thing cuter than the sight of tiny children’s furniture? The sight of your children sitting there! Make sure to search through low table-and-chair set that you know your children will find comfortable. For added relaxation, a cozy mini sofa, beanbag, daybed, or even large pillow with blankets work great in corners (and are great for encouraging them to read or settle down for naptime)!

Chalk it Up: If you have fond memories of writing with colorful chalk outside, take the magic inside for your children to enjoy no matter the weather! A chalkboard wall is an irresistible addition that lets your children’s imagination run free. Whether you use it together to make homework a little more fun, or they pick up their favorite colors to draw their next greatest art piece, this wall will provide endless hours of entertainment.

Get Artsy: There’s nothing like a wall that pops! From wallpaper and wall decals to photos and posters, there are so many ways to make this room memorable. If your kids are interested in geography, try a large map decal! Do they love animals? Look for animal prints, a jungle scene, or photos of their favorite creatures. And of course, words and numbers are a great way to encourage reading, writing, and even new hobbies.

Snug As a Bug: Just like vibrant walls, a fun rug adds so much life and happiness to a playroom. Whether the design you choose goes along with a theme or incorporates a certain color, make sure that it’s soft and comfortable (after all, it’s going to be holding tiny feet for a long time!) Not to mention, a good rug helps with noise as well as keeps the floor in pristine shape.

From all of us at Beacon Homes, happy designing!
