Playfully yours: spaces where kids feel at home
Looking for a just-right mix of fun and function? Here's a few ways to make your home equally playful and practical for the little ones in your life.
Rooms to grow with
Setting up your child's first room is exciting, but its not something you want to have to do again in a few short years, just because they've grown up a bit. Here are a few ideas to make a room that is fun for the littles, that also can last a little longer.
Big enough for the two of us
For an explosion of creativity, play and family dynamics – simply add a sister or brother! Siblings sharing a room may be a challenge at times, but also a source of joy. While some compromises are likely needed, a lot can also be personalised, like having separate wardrobes and storage units.
Let the fun begin
Above all – play! Make it easy for your children to move, explore, and express themselves. Let toys, games and watercolour-fresh art on display add to the mood of the room, and give rise to new ideas and activities.
Playfulness knows no boundaries
While there's often good reason to concentrate play to kids rooms, it's equally important to encourage it elsewhere. With easy fixes, workspaces, bathrooms and kitchens can be both child-friendly and safe environments.
