When you’re preparing your toddler’s playroom, know that you don’t have to hire an interior designer in order for the room to look absolutely gorgeous. The key is that you’ll need to become intentional about incorporating visual interest to the aesthetic. There are tons of ways you can make this happen. Consider these four concepts.
1. Add wallpaper.
Look online for different patterns and prints for your wallpaper. Wallpaper is an easy fix that’ll impact a room. Consider the size of the room and how much wallpaper you want to use. You might decide that you just want to create a statement wall and cover the largest wall with the wallpaper. If you really want to make things even more interesting, add the wallpaper to the ceiling. No one will expect it, and it’ll immediately enhance the aesthetic in the room.
2. Install fun lighting.
If you’d like to try a subtle option, hire an electrician to install recessed lighting throughout the room. If you have a little girl who is a princess, consider hanging a glass chandelier. If you don’t want to do a glass option, there are tons of interesting textures to choose from. Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box with the lighting. Even though you’re preparing the room for your child, it’s okay to add a few sophisticated elements to the room.
3. Set up unique furniture.
Visit different furniture stores to find unique options for rugs, ottomans and gliders. When you’re picking out floating shelves, bookshelves and seating options, look for sturdy yet stunning furniture. Instead of purchasing a small couch to sit in the corner of the room, consider using a daybed instead. Decorate the daybed with plush pillows and beautiful blankets. Purchase an indoor toddler swing for the times when your toddler wants to swing and relax at the same time.
4. Stick to a theme.
Sometimes, it’s helpful to set up a specific theme. If you choose a princess theme or a Cat in the Hat theme, it’ll help you create a great foundation and a focal point. You can build on a theme with different creative ideas and concepts.
