Kids will love these fantasy play areas designed just for them.
A tent takes advantage of an angled ceiling to create a permanent "campground" for little ones. Paint tic-tac-toe and checkers gameboards right onto the floor for the ultimate in easy game setup.
A playroom is the perfect place to go wild with color. Create a playful grid by taping off even rectangles and painting them bright, coordinating hues.
Mounting a large, framed chalkboard on the wall can turn your playroom into Picasso's studio. Another option is to turn the entire wall into a canvas using chalkboard paint.
Pink, black, and white make this a glamorous spot for play. Unconventional flooring says, "It's time to have fun!" while lots of storage and floor space keep things tidy.
A large-scale mural hints at the dangers that lurk just outside the windows of a deep-sea submarine. Thankfully, there's nothing to fear in the cozy interiors of this fantastic playroom.
Got creative kids? Then you know organizing art supplies is a must. Try these ideas for organizing, storing, and inspiring from designer Ayse Boneval of The Container Store in Rockville, Maryland, who designed this family crafts room for a local showhouse.
Designers of this child's bedroom took one look out the treetop windows to come up with a hot-air balloon theme. The themed fabric is used both alone and cut into patchwork squares used with coordinating fabrics. And the sheers? Why they're balloon shades, of course!
Soft seating, cozy rugs, and ample storage make this a playroom as popular with kids as it is with Mom. Chalkboard paint runs around the perimeter of the room above the chair rail, offering an opportunity for kids to actually write on the walls to their heart's content!
Inspired by a Scottish castle, this bed and playhouse combination includes bunk beds, secret hiding places, and a book nook in the ladder-accessed turret. Fashioned from stone-look laminate, the castle has no back walls, so mattresses can be moved in and out easily.
This second-floor playroom is filled with toys, yet the main attraction is the authentic brass fire pole that lets kids zip down to the first floor. Two half-circles of plywood act as a safety lid, keeping the access covered until it's needed.
Have a less-than-beautiful basement ceiling? These homeowners stapled fabric panels to exposed floor joists, creating a fun tented effect. Sheet vinyl flooring cleans up easily after art projects or tea parties and has a smooth surface conducive to games and play.
Multipurpose areas like this one let different activities occur at the same time so everyone can be in the room together yet do their own thing. The armoire holds games and toys at the ready.
A wicker play table and cozy bench seat are two of the girls' favorite spots to play and read.
