HOW TO DESIGN THE PERFECT PLAY ROOM

A kids play area needs to be a multi-functional play room that’s cosy, colorful and a play space that kids will love to be in.

Indoor places for kids

A well-designed playroom (that’s a special kids play area) needs to be a multi-functional play space with an emphasis on child skills development.

A child needs an indoor play area where they feel safe and free to explore… where they can be creative and express themselves by trying new things. The perfect modern playroom is free from clutter and old worn-out toys and furniture.

Kids play places

The home play area needs to include educational toys for kids, learning toys and soft play equipment that is both fun and safe to play on.

The indoor play space can be a special kids play zone where there are lots of learning toys for toddlers, encouraging various indoor children’s activities… improving a child’s skills development, especially fine motor skills in infants.  Early learning toys are essential for a child’s mental and physical development.

Designing a Child's room for Play

INDOOR PLAY PLACES

Indoor play places need to include an enjoyable happy play space that encourages kids to explore, read books, paint, and draw. A well-designed playroom needs to help develop a child’s imagination and encourage creative skill building.

It also needs to stimulate and strengthen a child’s thought processes, to ultimately expand their knowledge and understanding of why and how things work. A well-designed playroom prompts kids to expand their abilities, as well as promoting or strengthening their thought processes.

THE MODERN PLAYROOM

Perhaps the old playroom needs a fresh coat of paint and some new and up to date furniture with an emphasis on educational toys and skill development.  The ideal playroom environment stimulates a child’s inquiring mind to solve problems through exploration and play. The modern playroom needs to help develop the fine motor skills in infants and older children, to extend themselves through play.

The playing room needs to help develop a child’s creative skills through play, enabling them to learn about color, texture, balance, shape, and sound, helping kids to develop organization skills and stretch their imagination.


Setting up Indoor Places for kids

Indoor places for kids need to allow them to experiment and develop their imagination.

A soft play area is important in a kids play space, where kids can listen to music or experiment and develop their imagination by building a tee-pee tent or an indoor cubby house… or cuddle up with cushions and rest a while, sleep or read a favourite book.

Indoor places for kids might include an under-stairs playroom.  Another fun playroom feature might be a kids’ jumping place or be set up as a fun kids indoor playground, using wallpaper trees with cushions for rocks to climb over. You could create an imaginary kids playground jungle using soft play toy animals.  Or you could set up a special playroom as a kids indoor park, with wallpaper trees and indoor climbing frame.

Child skills development

Fun play places need to stretch a child’s imagination with varying stimuli to grow and develop their newly emerging thought processes, increasing their learning skills and independence.

Social development for children

Social development for children is important and safe places for kids to play with friends help to develop their emotional and social skills. Why not invite a few of your child’s friends over to also enjoy your child’s playroom?

How to Modernize your Play Room

What do children need?

We need to get back to basics. A child needs stimulation by using color, sound, feel, shape, texture, patterns and taste. Creativity thought patterns can be stimulated using music, words, environment and the exploration of many other areas.

It’s important to create a safe room where children can sit, stand, jump, lie down, crawl and feel free, whilst doing an activity. They need a designated room or area that is both creative and changeable… a room to play, express themselves, relax, read books and explore different experiences. It needs to be a totally technology free zone.

It needs to be a dual-purpose room. You need good design with both space, functionality, color and different zoned areas. These zoned areas are distinguished by colorful floor mats, seating areas, activity and relaxing areas, both stimulating and functional.

Discovery areas need color, texture, pin-up board areas and storage for books, games, pens and paper, instruments, soft toys and a chalk board.

7 Features of a Modern Child’s Play Area

1 An Open-Plan kids play area needs to be light and airy and not overcrowded.

2 The perfect play room needs to be a multi-functional safe play space.  It needs to be easily accessible, according to a child’s height, to encourage indoor play for kids. And it should provide for different places for kids to play, i.e., different kids play zones that are very flexible for play and relaxation.

3 Kids need to develop organization skills to keep the play room tidy.  Suitable storage in a play room is essential for organizing all the educational toys, books, toys, soft toys, and paints.  Colorful baskets or clear buckets with labels are a great way to store the different indoor children’s activities, learning toys and soft play equipment.  Use either clear buckets or colorful baskets that fit in the storage unit to separate the different indoor children’s activities and games.  

4 A kids play zone needs child-safe tables and chairs to use as a work space.  It also needs a chalk board or pin-up board or easel for kids to create or paint in the indoor play area.

5 The indoor play space needs to include the all-important soft play area by utilising colorful rugs, cushions, pillows, and soft throws to create a cosy play room where kids can rest, read, or snuggle up with lots of soft play toys and perhaps go to sleep.

6 Rotate educational toys.  Do not have too many toys in the play area.

7 For child skill development, the kids’ play places need to be enjoyable, colorful and constitute a fun indoor play space to be in.

A child needs an area where they can feel safe and free to explore their most creative side and express themselves freely. It needs to be an environment where it is fun, exciting and stimulating. Creativity can so often be stunted by merely sitting watching television, computers or other devices where their whole being is not being stimulated.
