Looking for girls playroom ideas? Here are 5 tips, inspired.
Pick a theme. What does the girl the room is being designed for enjoy? Is she sporty? Artistic? A music-lover? Princess-in-training? Enjoy adventure and traveling? Find your inspiration and design your playroom around that concept. See how beautiful Cinderella’s coach-inspired bed and canopy look! If you don’t find your girls playroom idea there, then how about a room inspired by arts & crafts? Or fashion design? Have more than one idea? Fantastic! Look at the photos and see how textures and materials are used to create multiple spaces within the playroom — for example, a kitchen area in one corner and a mock classroom in another.
Create a usable workspace. More important than anything, a girl’s playroom should be functional and should have at least one dedicated space for her to sit and read or do activities and play games. A table and chairs is most common but there is no limit on creativity. See the different tables and chairs in the photos as well as the additional seating and activity spaces? The tables and chairs serve basic functions but note how the shape and color also impact the visual appeal and flow of the room. Play houses, bean bag chairs, teepees and canopies are playroom favorites and can add a wow factor plus serve a useful purpose. Tip: when designing a toddler playroom, consider a round or oval play table versus a square or rectangle to avoid undesired run-ins with sharp corners.
Storage and organization are key elements to any girls playroom idea. See in the photos how bookcases and shelves are used to neatly house everything from books to toys. They are also creatively used to define separate spaces within a larger space. Storage bins can be added to keep items organized and for visual appeal. For example, use brightly-colored storage bins to add a splash of color to a monochrome space for visual pop, or try monochrome bins in a multicolored space to create a sense of consistency and uniformity.
Splashes of color, texture and pattern make an eye-catching impact. See how different fabrics, patterns and textures are used in the different photos to highlight and draw attention to a particular space as well as add a layering appeal to otherwise flat spaces.
Display special collections and artwork in attractive ways. Use shelves, display cases and walls to showcase items of particular interest or focus.
