Getting your kids a playroom in the house will be one of the greatest gifts you can ever give to your children – a playroom is not merely a room where they get to have stupid fun; it can be so much more than that.
For starters, the playroom could enable them to develop their essential motor and coordination skills and help them find their hobbies and strengths that they could use later on in life.
Your kid will only be a kid once – you will be shocked as to how fast they grow up, so if you’re going to build them a playroom, better do it right at once.
So, if you’re currently thinking of building your kids’ their dream playroom, start by painting it the right way.
No matter what you do, children will be children – and nothing is more dangerous to your walls than a kid armored with a pen or a crayon.
So, to avoid the heartbreak of seeing messy, vandalized walls, consider getting paint with a glossy finish, which will be ideal for your kids’ playroom as any marks can easily be wiped clean.
Additionally, the glossy finish can help draw your attention away from any imperfections on the surface, and it just looks shiny and glimmering – perfect for your little kids’ liking!
Your kids’ playroom will be that room in your house where they will feel free and safe to express themselves, so the playroom ideally has to feel like an intellectually stimulating but also equally fun and productive environment.
You could play around with so many color schemes, but traditionally it would be good to stick with light colors, since you want your playroom’s space to feel as bright, airy, and spacious as possible – which light colors do best.
Additionally, a personal tip would be to maintain your playroom as a gender-neutral space so everyone can feel like they can join in and belong in the playroom.
Since your kids are surely going to be in the playroom all day, it would be ideal to incorporate a chalkboard in there using chalkboard paint.
By doing this, you are hitting two birds in one stone – you’re letting them have their fun while making sure that they are kept right on track with their academics, with the help of the chalkboard in the playroom.
This is learning made fun, so you may want to consider this creative and convenient solution.
Since the playroom is essentially for your kids, it would be a good decision to involve them in the process of painting their playroom.
Ask their opinions about which colors they’d like to see, what vibe they like to have in the playroom, and what other elements they would want to have in their very own playroom.
This is a great practice for developing their critical and decision-making skills, and you could even strengthen your parent-child bond in the process – yay for good parenting!
Most commercially released paints nowadays emit low-level toxic emissions in the air, known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which pose a huge risk for your children’s health.
It is good that more companies have now been releasing a much safer alternative, which is paint that has lesser-to-zero VOCs.
So, when you’re shopping for paint to use in your kids’ playroom, have a chat first with paint experts about your best options in buying paint with less to zero VOCs.
