    Color is critical when designing a creative play area that kids will love. Paint the wall with their favorite colors, or consider a chalkboard wall, an underwater theme, or a hand-drawn design in your child’s bedroom for an eye-catching accent wall. Neutral colors are also an excellent idea for those looking to style up a modern playroom and are not ready for bold colors. Include some pizazz with a radiant floor covering.

    Opting for floor tiles of soft fiber is a smart idea for play areas. If you’re looking for playroom flooring ideas that won’t break the bank or require much renovation, try carpet tiles or interlocking rubber tiles. Consider something that is easy to wash and care for.

    Adding comfy seating

    No matter what playroom design you go with, seating that’s comfortable and easy to lounge in is essential. Please keep it simple with a few small bean bag chairs and fur rugs, or incorporate various fun pieces like floor cushions, a couch, or large stuffed animals.
