An open play space with plenty of storage is key to making a child’s playroom fun for the little ones and practical for parents. Places to store plush toys, books, crayons and all the other kooky kids’ stuff required to stir a child’s imagination are essential.
A chalkboard wall gives your budding Picasso a place to color on the wall that isn’t permanent. Waypoint Satin Nickel Cup Pulls with magnetic strips work well for holding chalk on a magnetic chalkboard.
This built-in bench with open storage (shown in 750 Maple Rye) works well with baskets to store stuffed toys and board games.
Alternating placement of wall cabinets creates a playful feeling and avoids an imposing wall of doors. Ample shelving in between cabinets is ideal for today’s most popular children’s books.
A playroom isn’t all fun and games. Encourage downtime with a variety of designated places to recharge for more fun. Beanbags, soft sofas, oversized stuffed animal and floor cushions make nap time dreamy.
Pops of color create a fun, festive atmosphere. Don’t be afraid to mix and match.
Think beyond the books. Use bookshelves (shown in 720 Painted Linen) to add a dash of personality with framed photos or your favorite trinkets.
