Sprucing up your home for your children can seem a daunting task — how to create a safe space that can entertain your child while also facilitating creativity and learning? First off, no matter how old your little one is, it's best to find decor without sharp corners. Plush furniture is a great option — your children can lounge, jump around, or have friends over without worry. Another ideal look for a playroom? Colour. Using lots of colours not only looks fun and fresh, but it's also a great way to inspire your child to be creative. Finally, don't be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to your child's playroom. Adding forts, rock walls, or trains will entertain your child for hours so they never feel bored.


Are you ready to take a look at some inspiration for the best playroom? Let's jump in and see sixteen of the most popular and fun decorations for playrooms.

1. Maps and cushions

Simplicity shouldn't be overlooked — adding a map for your child to check out, a few photos for colour, and a patterned cushion for reading and lounging make the ideal playroom.

2. Rugs and toys

To keep the space clean, add buckets or baskets for your child to put toys in — it'll teach them to be responsible and clean up when they're done playing! And bringing a rug in can help to cushion any falls and add some colour.

3. Wild playground

If you can't have a treehouse outdoors, why not indoors? It's safer because it's closer to the ground, but it's also very cute to add some colour like this purple!

6. Ball pit
