If you’re looking for inspiration for your playroom, take a look at the following rooms we found on Pinterest. Each one has at least one brilliant idea that could transform your playroom in just a day or two. With winter just beginning, take the time now to invest in a room that will get plenty of use! We even sourced some similar products and DIYs to get you started.
Get Clever with Storage

This room is all about clever ways of organizing toys. Hang creative hooks along a wall to hang basket or buckets of toys. The modern organizer on the wall by Vitra is a cool way of keeping tools handy. Try Land of Nod’s I Could Have Been a Container Wall Organizer for a similar, less pricey look.
Try Land of Nod’s Up Against the Wall Bin as a similar low shelf for easy to reach books, toys or crafts.
Decorate the Ceiling
This room is transformed by whimsical polka dots on the ceiling and a fanciful message on the chalkboard wall. Buy polka dot wall decals available in a variety of colors or use Sadie Jane’s Polka Dot Stencil tutorial in the above photo.
Paint the Room White and Add a Chalkboard

An all white playroom lets all the other colors in the room pop. Once again, an extra large chalkboard wall gives kids ample room to be creative.
Toss in Pillows

Everyone loves to lounge on pillows but kids also find ingenious ways of playing with them. (When I was a kid I would take all the pillows off our couch and jump on them. Our couch would have lasted longer if my parents got us a few pillows of our own.)
Dress-Up Closet and Stage

If you have a little performer, give him or her a stage and a dress-up closet for costumes. Don’t forget comfy chairs for the audience since you’ll be the audience! Furniture is from PBTeen.
There are a lot of Dress Up Closet DIYs on Pinterest, but I love this one from Busy, Beautiful and on a Budget because you don’t have to build the closet. She used an old bookcase, painted it, used wrapping paper for the back, added a dowel rod and voila… a dress-up closet worthy of a princess. (I love the wrapping paper she chose and the fun color of the dowel rod!) Use a shorter bookcase if you want your child to be able to reach the clothes herself or just give her a step stool.
