Playroom Inspiration

Since before I had Logan, I would dream of all the amazing things I would do for my kids. I would think about all the cool imaginative spaces I would create for them. Now that I have Logan, those dreams have gone into over drive! As a parent you just want to give your child the most incredible childhood that they will remember for the rest of their lives. I want to make sure that Logan has the best memories with his family and enjoys playing in our home.

We have a 5th bedroom in the basement that my husband apparently has big plans of knocking down the wall and extending his “MAN CAVE” to create a bar area – however, I have put those plans on hold with the argument that Logan might want his bedroom down there once he’s a teenager… 😉 But either way, I think it will be the perfect playroom once Logan is a little older and we have more kids. But for now – we are keeping the “play space” on the main level since Logan isn’t big enough to be playing downstairs by himself. Luckily we have a second family room that we use as the child friendly play space 🙂 I still have a few more things to do, but once that is done I will take some pictures and share with you 🙂

We also have a little cubby under the stairs in our basement that Adam & I are currently turning into a playhouse for Logan’s first Birthday! We are having so much fun doing it and I can’t wait to share it with you once it’s complete. I got the idea off pinterest of course, and here are a couple ones we love…

I think it’s so important for a child’s development to have a space where they use their imagination and can pretend play all day long!  Now although I have a little boy – I really try and keep most things gender neutral so if we have more kids in the future it won’t matter! Pinterest is the best place to get creative ideas – and since I am totally addicted I have put together some inspiration for all you parents (or soon to be :))

I love that these spaces are transitional throughout your home, and even if it’s in a main area you can still tie in your own home decor.

Stay tuned for our UNDER THE STAIRS PLAYHOUSE reveal 🙂
