Well-Designed Play Areas

Well-Designed Play Areas

Children go from crawling to walking to dancing, jumping, and building; and it all happens so quickly! They need a space where they can experience active play but also enjoy quiet play. A well-designed play area gives boundaries while providing space for independent and peer play. 

A Place to Sit and Play 

An essential part of a play area is a place for kids to sit and play independently or with a friend. The P’kolino Little Modern Table and Chairs is perfect for this. With built-in storage, a chalkboard on one side, and moveable dividers, this set is the perfect addition to your playroom design. 

A Place For Creative Play 

A well-designed play area will give children visual cues of what type of play is where. A table set up suggests one should sit and play with small blocks, puzzles, and drawing tools. A cozy tent in a corner with throw pillows might suggest a place to read or play with a truck.  Another corner may hold a workshop outfitted with pretend play tools or a pretend kitchen complete with the accessories needed for creative play. By setting up these separate areas of play, you help give boundaries while letting them using their imaginations. 

Everything In Its Place

Everything has a place and teaching that at a young age will help in the later years.  A good storage system in the form of shelves, cubbies, or toy boxes is essential in a child’s play area design. The Oeuf Mini Library allows easy access and high function and is perfect for those looking for a larger piece of furniture with a duel purpose. The Oeuf Toy Store, on the other hand, is perfect for small spaces. With multiple sized cubbies, this is the perfect shelf for kids to learn to help to pick up since they can easily see where everything goes.
