Kid’s Playroom Design (part II)

Following up on last week’s post on design for a kid’s playroom, here are some fun, funky and vibrant seating options.  Modular, upholstered seating works best so you do not have to worry as much about children getting hurt on the furniture while they are playing.  It’s nice to have accent colors be on the accessories or toys, rather than the walls, especially if they are the ever popular pink or baby blue, so that you do not get too tired of looking at it.  To make it more fun you can mix and match patterns, textures and colors.

It’s good to start with the base colors, i.e. neutral grays or earthy colors, and decide which accent colors you would like to incorporate.  The color options and patterns for kid’s furniture can be overwhelming.  Toys can always be stored and accessories changed, whereas repainting a kid’s playroom is more of a chore.  With the right design it is possible to have the playroom fit into the overall style of the home or apartment, so that is not just a door you shut when guests come over! These are the three options we’re considering for a playroom where we have an earth toned vintage moroccan rug.  In the first photo below the tufted, rounded shape of the sectionals is what makes this a fun choice for a playroom.  In the second image the flexibility of being able to move the seating around and re-arranging the color combinations and patterns create a youthful look.  The third image is a sectional from Lignet Roset, the Confluence by Pierre Paulin.

Kid’s playroom design

Kid’s playroom design should integrate two essential elements, modularity and functionality.  Kids love to move things around, assemble and re-assemble, and be able to do a number of different activities.  Space permitting it’s a great idea to have separate areas for reading, playing with toys, watching tv and an open area.  Storage is key as well, many toy manufacturers now offer multi-functional toys such as letters that are storage boxes and seats with openings for toys.  If you have a playroom in your home or apartment, and would like it to serve as additionally as a guest room, it’s helpful to consider if you are putting the room together in a way where most of the toys can be hidden when guests visit.

Custom built-ins with enough drawers and closed cabinets, as well as bunches and toy chests, are helpful to accomplish this.  Bookshelves (out of reach of tiny hands!) can easily be swapped out between books and toys.  Fluffy carpets and cushy sofas like these togo sofas from Lignet Roset are a great place to start.  Here are some inspiration images to help you get started!

Kids Rooms Design Ideas

Bedrooms are very personal spaces that provide a place for rest and quiet.   Privacy, scale, lifestyle and functionality are factors to be taken into account when designing a children’s rooms. The design can incorporate children’s beds, twin beds,bunk beds, daybeds, trundle beds, nightstands, storage units, desks and/or chairs depending on the size and the various activities that the interior space will serve other than sleeping. Designing kids rooms with light/neutral colors and accent bright colors/elements is a great way to have the design flow with the overall design of the residence without overdoing it with colors such as light pink and baby blue typically found in children’s rooms.
