Nowadays, kids love to stay indoors for a long time, especially during the chilly winter or wet rainy days. In fact, it seems that kids today are all about the indoors activities. And following this trend, parents around the world are turning towards exclusive playrooms to implement them with a dedicated space 100% kids-friendly. Therefore, Kids Bedroom Ideas‘ editors have gathered some great tips on how to transform your basement into a colorful kids playroom. Let’s play around!
Seating and Lighting
While plush seats for the kids are a given in the playroom, also add a cool ottoman or a simple couch that will allow the adults to sit comfortably in the room. This will encourage you to spend more time with your kids and get a bit more involved in their playroom fun.
Stretching Out the Storage
Basement playrooms mean that eventually some of the toys will find their way back up into the main house. When it comes to kids’ playrooms, you can never have enough storage.
One thing you do need to settle on before designing the playroom is the theme of the space. Playrooms with specialized themes do look amazing and will surely put a giant smile on your kids’ faces for days to come.
Carpeting and the Walls
While wall-to-wall carpeting is often the preferred way to go in playrooms, consider square carpet tiles that allow you to localize and clean up any mess with ease. When it comes to the walls, you should choose colorful wallpapers and beautiful wall decals instead of an extensive and expensive paint job.
Making a Grand Entrance
The basement playroom is the perfect place to add a slide along with the regular staircase to make it even more fun and appealing. Unlike many of the other expensive additions, this will not set you back by a fortune. Besides, even the adults in the house can have some fun!
Kids and Adult Spaces
Most kids want to be around their parents as much as possible, and there is no way you are going to tie them down to the basement if you are in the kitchen upstairs all the time. Plan for a small entertainment area, a home workspace or even a laundry room next to the playroom.
Getting Past the Basic Checks
Turning the basement into a functional space is not just about the aesthetics. Make sure there are no leakages in any of the pipes and ensure that the ceiling is completed before you start thinking about the playroom. Check whether your basement is indeed good enough to hold a playroom along with an additional adult space.
