Redesigning Your Kid’s Playroom

A playroom is where your child spends most time in the early stages of growing up. Maintaining a neat and clean playroom is of utmost importance for the healthy growth of your child. Keeping the playroom orderly would be a mammoth task if it is not designed properly, and your child would not be comfortable there. Listed below are a few ideas to keep a playroom tidy and well maintained.

Planning the room

The first thing you are required to do is to clear the room completely of all furniture, wall hangings, fancy clothes, toys etc. It would indeed be very difficult to organize an annoyingly littered room. Once the entire room is empty, you can think of ideas for rearranging all your kid’s things.

Having your child by your side when you redesign the room would be great because your child would feel more attached to the room if involved in the setting up of the room. Repainting would make the room look new and bright; let your child choose the colors for the room and mix them up a little to suit taste and appeal.

Optimizing the room space

Before you put back all the toys and furniture into the room, you need to make a few adjustments. Throw out all the old toys that your child rarely plays with, or put them in the attic if you feel that some of them may have sentimental value. Having a mix of closed and open storage would save a lot of space.

For example, toys can be kept inside a drawer that closes into the bed, and books can be arranged on shelves that are easily reachable to your child. Having books in the open and toys stashed into drawers would make the room look bigger and brighter.

Floating shelves can also be added to the room to house books or a few toys on them. It would give the room a unique look and help the child have easy access to playthings. An expert remodeling contractor can suggest great redesign ideas for optimal use of space available in the room.

Organizing the room

Arrange artistically all the toys, other playthings and furniture in the room, but make sure that you do not ‘over fill’ it. Have a diverse mix of shelves and furniture in the room and make them all child-friendly. You could have there adjustable play tables, bean bags etc.

Wall hangings of your child’s favorite cartoon characters or food items would make the room even more appealing. The main objective of redesign is thus to make your child feel secure and comfortable in the playroom.

The cost of the redesign depends upon the extent of modifications of the existing design. Customized tables and shelves will cost a little extra but a reputed and much experienced remodeling contractor will always give you the best available options and rates. Should you hesitate to spend a little extra to make your child smile brighter and have greater fun?
