Having a Children’s Playroom Not Disrupt Your Sense of Style
When you have children, particularly small ones, you give up your ability to do a lot of things including taking adventurous vacations, working long hours, and simply having significant amounts of time for leisure. One thing that you don’t need to sacrifice is having a well decorated home, even when you are struggling to find order in your home. Maintaining balance in your home starts with a well-decorated and organized play area for your children that doesn’t overflow into the other parts of your home. Here are some tips on achieving that.
Maintain Space in the Playroom
Many people, despite the popularity of the open concept in homes, still like cozy and well packed areas. The playroom should be a neat and tidy room with plenty of room for your children to run in and create their own adventures. Cluttering up a playroom with entertainment for your children is a common mistake. You are better off creating areas that they can repurpose (which makes it more eco friendly) and use for whatever toy they are using at the moment. Other than a small desk and chair, there shouldn’t be much in the way of hardware for décor. Just a rug to protect them from falls and some well-maintained toy chests and closet spaces where they can extract, and return the things that they are playing with at the time.
Maintaining a Theme and Mural
Children’s imaginations are often invigorated by a theme for their room, whatever it may be. Even if you aren’t aware of your children’s future interests, you can try to design a room to capture it, such as having a room designed as a safari themed space or with an ocean theme. Children love to play in well-decorated areas and they can be calming as well. Keep the theme and mural simple and tactful and don’t overload it with too much detail. Use removal stickers, but by no means let your children apply them on their own.
Keep the Playroom Open but Confined
A playroom should be expansive for your children but not take over the rest of your home. Keep the playroom an independent entity and don’t let it take over the rest of your home. Have strict rules dictating it and make sure that you remind children of the importance of keeping things neat and organized.
Having children doesn’t mean the end of enticing home décor. Focus on designing a playroom that is varied and has plenty of room for imagination and don’t let it creep into the rest of your home.
