Playrooms for Toddlers

Safe Bunk Beds

A playroom for a toddler has to be catered to the specific needs and inclinations of a child that age. You should ensure that everything that can be reached is interactive as that will help stimulate their minds and imaginations. At the same time you have to ensure that it is safe, as toddlers are very vulnerable to injury, especially when they get excited and rambunctious. However it is possible to create a play area that is fun, secure, and which will help your child develop and grow.

The first thing that you should do is empty the playroom completely. By taking all of the items out of there you will ensure that nothing dangerous gets left behind. Once you have a blank slate to work with you can start reintroducing furniture pieces, and then toys, games, and other items that will fill the bulk of the environment.

Playroom FurnitureThere are a number of furniture items that can be useful in a toddler’s playroom. Storage is important, and the use of large bins, dressers, and chests will help to keep the area organized and tidy. Choose organizational products that are easy to use so the child can start helping with cleanup time when they are ready. It may also be useful to have a couch, rocking chair, and other seating options in the space. These can act both as comfort items and fun padded toys that your kids can interact with.

Flooring is often overlooked in a playroom but it can be very important. If possible you want a soft surface that will not hurt if your toddler falls on it. That’s particularly important when they are first learning to walk. Carpet is a great option, as is rubber, and vinyl or linoleum with cork underlayment padding. If you have a harder surface in there already like hardwood, consider using thick rugs to coat the area.

Many parents choose to include a bed or sleeping area in a playroom, as rigorous activity can quickly turn into sleepy exhaustion. Beds are also great as they give the child a place to crawl, fall, bounce, and jump, all on a surface that is soft and springy. If you want to be whimsical you can purchase a novelty bed that is designed to look like a dollhouse, a race car, or an explorer’s tent.

A toddlers playroom can be an excellent space to let your kids be excited, energetic, and just have fun. Because it is an environment you can control you have the ability to eliminate elements that might otherwise be dangerous to them. You can also instill the space with toys that will stimulate their minds and motivate them to learn, create, and grow.
