15 Ingenious Kids Table Set Ideas – The Perfect Place For Homework, Art Or Play!

As a parent, it’s really important to support the creative side of your children and create that one corner in their room that’s designed for playful and artistic activities. But with the overwhelming amount of kid’s room furniture options, it can be overwhelming in financial and time-related terms to research and eventually buy the right type of product. With that in mind, it’s important for parents to know which product to invest in order to avoid long-term frustration, so we’re going to try and focus on some of the most ingenious kids table set ideas that money can buy without putting parents through too many financial efforts.

Kids Play Space Design Ideas

Even when you come across furniture pieces that you feel would be suitable for your child’s room, it can be confusing knowing how to put all the elements together to create a space that they would actually enjoy being in. Getting the creative juices flowing can be difficult at any age, so we wanted to show you some inspiration that might put you on the right path to knowing how to decorate the living space for your kid to work on whatever creative activities they fancy being engaged in at their age.

#1: Art Room

One of the greatest things that your child can learn to do at a fragile age is learn how to play an instrument. From a psychological point of view, knowing how to play an instrument is something that creates discipline, helps children learn new information faster and teaches them hand-eye coordination from a young age. As you can see in the image example, this room is centered around the idea that instruments can play a great part of a child’s life, but it doesn’t neglect the playfulness that one must have in a room dedicated for children.

The miniature piano and the drummer’s set occupy their rightful places, but there is also a play table with a miniature town set, and also a creativity table where the little one can sit down and do everything from homework to painting pictures, play with blocks, or do puzzles.

#2: Princess-Style Bedroom

For older girls, we have a suggestion for a bedroom setup that’s fit for a princess. With warm purple tones intertwined with white elements, this is a bedroom for the true girl dreamer. The elements are carefully chosen: from the crystal-like chandelier that’s fit for a royalty bedroom to the fluffy throw pillow that rests upon a lilac-colored comforter. The activities table isn’t missing in this example either, as everyone needs a creativity corner in their room, regardless of their age.

#3: Colorful Children’s Activity Room

You shouldn’t feel overwhelmed when you look at rooms filled with children furniture and toys, as you can set up a room just like this one without having to spend near as much money as you’re imagining right now. You can let go of some of these toys in favor of others, so try to focus on the big picture instead of the individual pieces found in the room. We have a seating area that’s covered in colorful throw pillows because every child’s room needs drop of color scattered here and there.

The letter carpet is the perfect addition to a room that needs a personalized item. The activity table can be purchased for a lot less than you imagine (and we have some good product examples later in this article) and the kitchen set can be replaced with some other toy that’s more suitable to the interests of your child.

#4: Reader’s Corner for Children

Teaching your child to love books is invaluable, as reading helps spark creativity and teaches the little ones concepts about good and bad, about what it means to be a leader or a dreamer, and basically offers plenty of life-related knowledge that might serve later in the future. As you can see from this particular room example we’ve chosen, it really doesn’t take too much to create a cook-oriented corner for your child.

The large shelves are made from wooden boards that can be repurposed and painted, if need be. The center activities table is actually cheap if you know how to look for one. There is also a storage shelf stand that will provide your little one with space for keeping their art instruments. The most important thing in this room is actually the lighting, so if you have the possibility to set up a child activity room somewhere where plenty of natural light comes in every day, that would be an amazing thing to do.

#5: Basement Repurposing

If you don’t have that much available space in your home to set up an activity room for your child, know that it’s not that complicated to repurpose your dusty basement and turn it into a lovely and intimate corner for your little one to practice creativity, have endless play hours with their friends, or just focus on the activities that bring them pleasure. The large blackboard mounted on the wall is an excellent idea from plenty of different points of view, especially since it’s a way for your child to draw without getting anything dirty and the fact that it can be erased basically provides them with an unlimited canvas to draw over time and time again.

The indispensable activities table set has found its way into this room as well, making sure that your child has a spot where they can do homework or unleash their creative side. There’s also plenty of room alongside the walls for placing all kinds of toys and other types of children’s room furniture.
