playroom design.

The playroom is first on my list for the one-room-at-a-time decorating plan. We bought this house for the kids and I’m so excited for them to have a beautiful and inspiring playroom all their own. If you are following along, you know that the dining room is the kids’ playroom. It is right across the kitchen and gets really nice bright light from the huge windows that look out to the side yard.

Here it is today:

To do:

1. Change carpet to hardwood, tile or laminate floor. (hardwood is lovely, but the scratches drive me b-a-n-a-n-a-s! We have laminate in the bedrooms and I see *zero* scratches, even after moving around heavy furniture. It is making me reconsider laminate flooring (aka “hardwood’s ugly brother”).
2. Kitchen island removed.
3. Current dining light fixture changed to a kid-friendly fixture that’s flush on the ceiling.
4. Buy and build shelves for toy bins and books.
5. Hooks/mini-wardrobe/chest for dress-up clothes and accessories.
6. Hang mirror at kid height so they can see themselves dance, in costume, giggle, whatever. This is especially important for Daughter.
7. Window treatment. (thinking paper garland hung vertically)
8. Acquire tables/chairs for drawing, writing and eating snacks + lunch. (regular or kid size?)
9. Build train table in time for Son’s birthday.
10. Crown molding – this does look pretty easy. Hehe.
