All parents will know how important it can be to keep their kids occupied. Most of us only get to spend weekends together, and as a blended family that can become every other weekend. We are currently looking for a house that has enough space for all of us. The girls and I spend countless hours on Pinterest looking for ideas for the perfect twin playroom. There are certain things that we have in mind, that I wanted to share with you.
Buy a custom bunk bed with storage
While you could design a custom bunk bed yourself, it’s often cheaper to purchase a mass-produced solution. It all comes down to how much effort you’re willing to exert, and how much cash you have to spend. I love the idea of having a bunk bed, because it will mean that whatever the size of the bedroom, there will be a lot of room left to play. There are so many options for bunk beds now a days ranging from metal, wood, storage, no storage, and in between. So much so that it’ll be interesting to see if the twins can come to a compromise on what they choose for their shared room.
Paint cartoon characters on the walls
If you’re a homeowner, then this one’s for you. The idea of painting your child’s favorite Disney characters all over the walls can be quite appealing for some. Just don’t worry too much if you have the artistic skills of a crocodile. There are lots of products on the market today that could help you to achieve the desired results. You should also buy toys and other items to fill the space. Maybe you should purchase stencils to make the painting process easier? If you do that, you won’t have to worry about getting too creative. You could even sack the paint idea altogether and opt for wall stickers, which is what I am sure we’ll do. It all comes down to the aesthetic you want to create, and how much money you can afford to spend.
Turn the floor into a comfortable seating area
It stands to reason your kids will spend most of their time sitting on the floor. So, you should aim to make it as comfortable as possible for them. Buy lots of large pillows and bean bags, so there’s always somewhere suitable to sit. Comfy Sacks and similar specialists know about the best items on the market today. Indeed, retailers of that nature sell bean bags designed for adults that could swallow your kids whole. Just make sure you shop around and don’t pay over the odds. At this time of the year, most stores are running amazing deals because consumers are still broke from Christmas. So, they have to drop their prices to maintain turnover. That means you shouldn’t hesitate when buying products for your kid’s new playroom.
There are lots of other things you might like to consider, but I just wanted to point out the most important. So long as you decorate the room accordingly, provide a fun bed and lots of artwork, your little ones are going to love their new space. Now is the time to create your plan and work out how much it will cost to turn that idea into a reality. In most instances, I shouldn’t imagine you’d have to spend more than a couple of hundred quid to create something fantastic.
