12 Indoor Kids Play Areas
To Keep Them Busy and You Sane
Winter where we live gets cold, and can seem to drag on for months and months. We have had so much fun playing outside this summer and fall that we don’t know what we are going to do when we are stuck inside for most of the day. The mall and fast food play places can be nice for burning off some energy, but wouldn’t it be nice to have a super awesome kids play area right in your home? Dream with me and gather some ideas from these 12 great playrooms! (featured image via 551 East Designs)
Remember to hop down a bit and link up your home and DIY projects at the weekend Remodelaholics Anonymous party for a chance to be featured and pinned!
What child hasn’t dreamed of living in a fairy tale castle? Check out this playroom castle on Aprill Aprill.
Cheri from I Am Momma Hear Me Roar built this great play area for her “big boys”, complete with a giant wall pegboard, a Lego table, and custom art canvases of their favorite toys.
See how Play Live Love brightened up their basement and turned it into a cheery play area — on a budget and without doing major renovations.
I love this play house that Joy2Journey shared here on Remodelaholic — adorable inside and out!
The bright colors and casual play areas of this awesome room by Kate Jackson Design (via Houzz) are perfect for younger kiddos and can easily be changed up as the kids outgrow it.
A reading loft is such a fun idea for kids, and putting it in the closet is smart use of space. The bold colors and built-in shelving of this playroom by 551 East Designs will grow with your child right up until they move out. And you have to see her DIY wood shim art!
We made this cottage play kitchen with so much love for our girls, and they loved it just as much as we did! Get the details to build one of your own here.
If you have young kiddos, what better use of a second family room than as a play area to run, jump, and play? Fun At Home With Kids put together an amazing space, complete with a rock climbing wall!
Any kiddo will love a room with all the love and details that The Busy Budgeting Mama put into this lovely play area — a kitchen and cafe with an awning, handmade felt food, a felt board, and plenty of storage space!
The beautifully carved trim on this attic playhouse was salvaged from another home, and it adds just the right magical touch to this space by Lynn Lee and Steve Skaggs, via Design Sponge.
Who says that a tree house has to be in an actual tree? A corner nook in your home could be transformed to create this fun play area, via Design Sponge.
We’ve all dreamed of a playroom from The Land of Nod, and Kirsten from 6th Street Design School used some of my favorite pieces — the teepee! that polka dot rug! — to put together a beautiful and functional room for her kiddos to learn in and explore.
