Playrooms are all about fun, but crafting a space that they love doesn’t have to mean compromising on style. Using colour and pattern, you can create an expressive space that will enhance, not fight with, their toys.
1. Get creative with colour
Bold colours on walls create a confident base. We love this unisex, geometric wallpaper from Murals. Its simple design means that it can easily grow with them and mixes effortlessly with their toys and furniture.
2. Mix it up
Relax the rules. Kids respond to variety and having different areas where they can explore their skills in different ways. We love mixing soft and more structured seating. Beanbags are always a great choice for kids, but so is somewhere more formal where they can sit up to read, play or craft. We have a range of tables and chairs to suit all sorts of decor - from Scandi and minimal to mid-century or upcycled.
3. The fun factor
It’s not a playroom without the play. Display their favourite toys on shelves and mantles, ready for them to grab and play. Pick out bright colours and fun faces to catch their eye. Open-play experts Grimm's make beautiful wooden toys that would grace any shelf, while this Chatter Phone from Fisher Price is bold, eye-catching and adds a cool nostalgic edge.
4. Super storage
When it comes to storage, make it accessible so that kids can pull out and put away their own toys. We’re loving the Olli Ella Luggy Basket which can stow teddies or books but also be used as a toy. Baskets always look great on a shelf, or in the corners of rooms and storage bags can look cool while also helping to make tidying up more fun and less of a chore.
