Are you looking for some good playroom decoration ideas? If yes, here are some unique and interesting ideas that you can use to decorate your children's playroom.
The playroom is akin to a recreational room for kids where they can play, read, and relax. It is a room in the whole house that kids can call their own. 
One thing that stops parents from setting up a playroom for their children is lack of space. Though having an extra room in the house that can be converted into a playroom is quite convenient, it is not always necessary. One thing you can do is to divide your child's bedroom and convert half of it into a playroom.
Another great idea would be to convert your attic or may be your basement into a playroom. Once you have chosen the place for the playroom, the next step would be to decorate it. So, if you want to build a playroom for your children, here are some ideas that you can refer to.


The most important thing that has to be kept in mind while decorating the playroom is the child's safety. Everything right from the flooring to the furniture should be child-friendly. 
Before you start thinking of ideas for decorating playroom, do not forget to ask your child's opinion. Children usually have some creative ideas in their minds, which you can incorporate in your playroom-planning agenda. Let's take a look at decor ideas for both boys and girls.

Themes for the Playroom

Decorating the playroom on the concept of a theme would be a great idea. Some good theme ideas for a playroom are animals, cartoons, characters from a particular story, etc. 
If your child loves animals, you can decorate the playroom with a jungle theme where you can decorate the room with green color paints, trees, bushes, wild flowers, pictures, or paintings of animals, etc. Some of the best themes for a girl's playroom would be that of a princess or Barbie doll.
Alphabetical and numerical wall ornaments accompanied with other educative d├ęcor accessories would make a great theme for the learning kids. However, there is no need to stick to a particular theme. Rather, it is also fine to decorate the room in a simple yet creative way.

Flooring and Painting

One of the most important things that has to be decided in the initial stages of interior planning is the type of flooring that should be used. 
Never use flooring that is too slippery as children tend to run around and a slippery floor can lead to accidents. The best type of flooring that you can use for the playroom is vinyl or ceramic tiles or parquet flooring.
To make the room more interesting, it would be best to use tiles of different colors and patterns. This variety can help you in dividing the playroom for various activities. For instance, you can have different colors of tiles for the play area, reading area, painting and sleeping area. This can give a unique look to the playroom.
Once you have decided the flooring of the playroom, the next thing you have to choose is the color on the walls. If you have a theme for the room, this becomes an easy process. However, if not, you have to choose the colors very carefully. 
Children love bright colors and some of the best colors for children's playrooms are red, pink, blue, green, and yellow. You can either use shades of one color on all the walls or a combination of different colors.
Other than using paint, you can also opt for wallpapers that are available in various colors and patterns. The color of the wall should also go with the flooring. As children tend to be messy while playing, it is important to choose a paint that can be easily cleaned when dirtied.


The next on the list comes the furniture for the playroom. There are a variety of options available in the market as there are many companies who have come up with a separate section for kids' furniture. 
Though wood furniture gives the best look to the room, it is always advisable to get plastic furniture for children's playroom. 
Some of the furniture that you can have in the playroom include shelves, hammock, toy boxes, bean bags, comfortable couch, children's tables and chairs, etc. A small shelf which can hold books can be set in the corner of the room where your children can read and relax.
One important thing that you have to remember is to color-coordinate the furniture according to the colors on the walls.
