35 Colorful Playroom Design Ideas

Whether or not you decide to include a playroom into your home’s design is something that depends on several aspects. But if you have the space then it’s a wonderful idea. Kids need to have a space where they know they can play and do whatever they want. But designing and decorating the playroom is something that the parents have to take care of. So here are some ideas that might inspire you.

You can design the playroom just like any other room of the house: with one accent walls, functional furniture and lots of storage. Just keep in mind that kids love bright and vibrant colors and they love to have lots of space at their disposal.{picture by Pat Sudmeier}.

This playroom has lots of great features. But the most interesting one I’ve noticed is that small table. it has a chalkboard top and it’s wonderful for kids because they get to draw and write using chalk and then they just wipe everything off.{found on davidblog}.

Even though you should use bright and bold colors in the playroom, you don’t have to use them in excess. Here, for example, the room is all white but the furniture and that slide all feature vibrant colors and they cheer up the décor and the atmosphere.

It’s important to have lots of storage space in the playroom. Kids need to be able to organize their toys after they’re finished playing with them. Also, try to save as much space as possible. For example, notice here that the stools are hidden under the table and they free up floor space when not used.{found on iheartorganizing}.
