How to Design a Playroom Space With Custom Cabinets and Floors

Posted November 25, 2021

Are you thinking about designing a play space that your kids can enjoy for years to come? If your home can spare a dedicated space for kids’ toys and art projects, it’s worth the investment. Thoughtfully designed playrooms have plenty of benefits for the average family. They keep toys and clutter in one room, and if guests arrive, all you have to do is shut the door. Problem solved!

When designing a playroom, it’s important to give attention to the storage and flooring as they will influence the aesthetics and functionality of your space. Let’s learn more about these features and how they can promote safety and organization.

Custom Cabinets for Toy Storage

At one point or another, most parents wonder how their child got so many toys! According to this article, the average child receives $6,500 worth of toys in their lifetime. The average household owns 71 toys, and one in ten households owns over 200 toys!

So where are you going to store all of these toys? Rather than dumping them into a toy box where they’re bound to be forgotten, you can organize them in clear containers. The containers can then be stored in the cabinets for a clean, coordinated look.

With custom cabinetry, you can also incorporate shelving for puzzles and games, hooks for hanging jackets and a bulletin board for displaying pictures. Another benefit is that you get countertop space, which can be used for drying art projects or displaying Lego sets.

Kid Friendly Flooring in the Playroom

With cabinets organizing the toys, the next thing to give attention to is the flooring. In a child’s play space, you need flooring that’s durable, comfortable and resilient. Two of your best options are luxury vinyl tile and laminate. Both are durable and resistant to water and scratches so you don’t have to worry about leaky sippy cups or toys dragged across the floor.

Laminate and luxury vinyl tile flooring are also good options because they are soft on little hands and knees. Kids spend a lot of time crawling and playing on the floor, so it’s important to have a warm and cozy surface for pretend play. If you need added comfort, invest in interlocking foam tiles or colorful area rugs.

The best part about investing in a playroom space is that it will last throughout your child’s lifetime - and more! As your kids grow, you can turn the space into a video game room or arts and crafts room. Then as the kids leave for college, you can use this space for your own hobbies and interests. It will be well deserved!
