Playroom Design | Organization
Having a room dedicated to playing is a good idea for your kids and your home organization!
It will be less messy in the living room and your kids’ bedroom. Nevertheless, your kids must know that it is better to keep it as tidy as possible. Playing doesn’t necessarily have to be messy or stressful.
The environment should remain minimal so that it is enjoyable for everyone. Here we give you our best advice on how to organize your playroom well.
The playroom in a few words
To start with, you should understand that there are indeed differences between the kids’ room and the playroom! Without beds, desks, the playroom is a full space dedicated to playing with toys or instruments. The main aim of a playroom is to play, to relax.
That’s why this room must be organized, thus favoring a calming and resting atmosphere. Moreover, your home playroom can sometimes be used not only for kids but for the whole family. Adults can play instruments in the playroom.
For instance, the family can gather to play games, solve puzzles, play videogames, watch TV, do some drawing, painting, sewing…
It should be a place where each family member can find their pleasure, source of happiness, and relaxing time. It must be a secure room in your house to enjoy family time and play safely.
The playroom: a creative room
Because your kids will spend a reasonable amount of time in the playroom, with a family member or by themselves, the playroom is very important in terms of creativity and security. Besides, you must adapt the room to every step on the way. That means that the playroom should remain appropriate to your kids’ age and in favor of your kids’ imagination.
To make the playroom as creative as possible, we recommend that you include a table for art, DIY… Also, it should consist of cupboards, shelves for books, and family games.
But be careful not to fill this room too much, to keep it clear! Scientific and psychological studies have proven that having too many toys reduces the quality of playing. For example, toddlers with fewer toys concentrate more and play more creatively.
Organizing the playroom
To increase creativity, imagination, quality of playing time, you have your role, but be sure to involve your kids and family members in the process too. The first thing to organize the playroom is to agree on which toys, games will be removed from the play area. As for the other rooms in your house, start to empty the playroom. Make a space for every category: games on a side, instruments on the other, etc. Put the broken toys, objects in a trash can. Moreover, ask your kids which toys that are still in good condition they don’t need anymore. You will give them to friends, family or charity.
Once you have kept only the essentials, set an organized system for the playroom. Have labeled cupboards, clear bins, big boxes for the toy. When the playroom is full, there is no need to add more items. Maybe you can keep the extra toys and games in a separate cupboard, space, and regularly do a turnover. But to keep the playroom tidy and organized, your kids will have to remove other things first. Try to empower them by adopting good habits and minimization. At the end of the day, items must be where they belong.
Minimizing the playroom
Finally, we genuinely recommend you to have a clear and minimize playroom. Indeed, reducing your kids and family members playtime makes them less greedy, less selfish. Having an organized, tidy playroom helps them to take care of more of the toys and items they do have. Moreover, they should this way be encouraged to read and playing more outside. All of this process helps your kids to grow positively.
There are many ways of organizing the playroom in your house. Everyone has responsibility in the process.
