I love playrooms today. I don’t remember having one as a kid; we all played in our bedrooms and in the backyard, so how lucky are our kids to have that bonus room, basement or attic conversion found in homes today. I frequently am asked to help with these spaces and the No. 1 need is storage and zones for all the activities and “stuff” that can clutter up a bedroom (and the family living room). It’s a room that should be devoted to imagination, color, fun and a hiding place for all the plastic toys we love to hate. Basically it’s a room for stuff and lots of it.
Depending on a child’s age, interests and activities the one constant is the color and usually a lot of it. There are a rare few that will amp up our family rooms to this extent, so go nuts in the playroom.
