If you’re a parent, sometimes you need to get a little creative to make sure your little munchkins have enough room to play and do the things they enjoy. When your yard or living room area just isn’t enough, you might consider revamping your basement just for them. Here are a few tips!

Keep It Comfy

Your kids will likely spend a lot of their time playing with various games and toys on the floor so you want to give them a nice surface to do so. Install materials like cork flooring, rubber or foam mats, or synthetic carpet tiles, like nylon or olefin, that are cost-effective and easy to install.

Get Creative with Color and Décor

Because your basement is hidden away from most guests, this room doesn’t necessarily need to align with the décor and color scheme you’ve chosen for the rest of your home. By choosing bright or unique colors, you can help open up the room and create an exciting space for your children to be creative. Don’t rule out wallpaper either! It can be a great way to incorporate your child’s favorite animal, movie, color, and more. You may want to hang family photos in this area too.

Separate the Space

If your basement is multi-use and the playroom will share the area with your man cave, downstairs bar, or laundry room, consider installing a divider to keep those areas separated. You can invest in installing a sliding door or curtain system or opt for a simpler choice like a folding screen or bookshelf.
