Since we’re currently working so diligently on Joe’s dream room, we thought we’d send a few tips for children’s rooms your way! Finding the perfect balance between child friendly and fabulously stylish can be tricky. To make the process a little easier, we’ve collected 5 Tips for Creating the Perfect Play Room inspired by Elle Decor.
- IMPLEMENT EASY-CLEAN UPHOLSTERY
Continuing on with the keeping-clean lifestyle, we encourage using fabrics and upholstery that is breathable and as stain resistant as humanly possible. Check out our custom fabrics in our boutique to find some inspiration!
Save the neutral hues for your guest suite. Kids love color and we love it too! When collecting inspiration your play room select your favorite bright-colored palette or, better yet, go for the full spectrum.
Where there is a child, there is usually a toy. Creating a space that can fit every trinket into storage is difficult to do without the right tools. Take advantage of spare corners, space under furniture, and be sure to stock up on storage bins that allow for a quick and efficient cleanup by little hands.
- AMPLE FLOOR SPACE
Kids love having space to run around! Not to mention the fact that Houston weather can be a bit unpredictable sometimes. Giving your child a space that’s both livable as well as play-friendly will make them feel like they can have just as much fun indoors as out.
- ACCESSORIZE MINIMALLY
Antiques, collectables, one-of-a-kind furniture and dainty accessories are so wonderful – but not anywhere near a playroom floor! Put your “fun to look at, but don’t touch” items up on high shelves or in wall-hung shadow boxes. Your kiddos will love to look at them and you can add to them over time.
