Boy’s playrooms are great places to keep clutter and toys contained and provide a fun and entertaining place for your children to stay. Your child could spend hours a day, especially on rainy or cold days, in the playroom so designing it for play, as well as, the function is important. Things to consider putting in the playroom are listed below.
Storage is important everywhere in the house, but in the playroom, it can be especially important. Clutter is common in a playroom and for your children to learn to pick up after themselves; they need to have somewhere to put them. Storage options include shelves, bins, baskets, closets, boxes, benches, and even tables.
What you choose for seating depends on the uses you intend for your playroom. If it’s strictly for play, a couple of chairs for adults to supervise may be all you need. Bean bags and kids’ chairs are other good options. Buying stools and benches that also act as places for storage are other good options. Mats are good places for children to sit and play.
Small, child-sized tables are good in playrooms for play dough, art, and snacks. Small chairs that fit with the table will make it convenient and functional. Other tables that may be included are train tables and other tables designed for specific uses.
If you plan to have a TV in the playroom, a sturdy cabinet anchored to the wall is the best option, as TVs sitting on furniture may be turned over. Dry-erase boards and chalkboards on the walls are good substitutes for easels that sit on the floor. Play tool benches, furniture, and puppet stands may also find their home in the playroom. You may also design your playroom around a theme which may include additional furniture options.
