Designing Your Child’s Dream Bedroom/Playroom

Child's Dream Playroom

We all want what is best for our children. We want them to be forever happy, to make lots of friends, to dream big, and to succeed in everything they attempt. Of course, this is easier said than done. The world can be a nasty place, but they’ve learned that home is where they are safe and loved.

A child’s home should be their safe haven, where they have nothing to fear and are free to conjure up their big dreams. These big dreams will later morph into their aspirations and shape their character.

Enclosed areas -including lofts, niches, spaces under the bed, or reimagined closets- are an amazing outlet for children.

While adults may see these in their simplest terms, children see them as hidden, mysterious, and –most importantly– full of possibilities.

That little niche can become a cave, a castle, a cottage, a home.

It could be a hiding place from the ogre they’re attempting to slay or a the fairy cottage they’ve been combing the forest for.

If you have observed that your child has an obsession with a certain genre of make-believe -for example pirates, racecars, fairies, medieval knights, etc.

A fantastic way of securing that love for fantastical adventures can be to transform their room into another land.
