Stellar Hideaway

In this contemporary girl's room designed by Randy Weinstein, you can read a book in the hanging bubble chair, put up more pictures of teen idols or climb a ship's ladder to your secret hideout. The cozy space tucked above the closets has lights and a small window. Next slide: The other half of the room

Double the Fun

On the other side of the room, sliding doors open into a sister's bedroom, creating additional playspace.

Indoor Hoops and More

Thanks to this garage redo, RMSer carlaschmidty's three sons can take plenty of practice shots, work out, listen to music and watch a game. "[Our] boys are very active," says carlaschmidty. "We never parked in our garage so we wanted to make that square footage work for us."
A happy discovery after the makeover was completed: When the garage doors are open, the black and white stripes complement the home's black shutters and white trim.

Hangout for Teens

Painted tin ceilings complete the look for this 1950s-flavored arcade, designed by Nancy Mikulich. In the next room, a cozy theater awaits.

Space That Grows With the Kids

Video games, artwork and TV watching can all happen here in this efficient contemporary space, designed by Ann Grasso.

Labor of Love

For a boy who loves fire trucks, this must be heaven. Built by RMS jcmcclure77 for his son, this fire truck bed has plenty of playspace inside, a bucket loader in front for toys and stuffed animals, and steps up to the bed.

Tropical Treehouse

Bamboo thatching, a custom slide and oversized "foliage" are the finishing touches for this amazing playspace in a boy's room. Posted by RMSer 8666045

Good Knight, Kids

Bedtime in this castle room must seem like a dream. From the recessed built-in bed, plus top bunk and slide, the view encompasses a knight- or princess-perfect castle decor built out of lightweight concrete. Design by Troy Beasley
