Playroom Boasts Colorful Pillows, Patterned Rug

Neutral walls were a smart choice for this playroom, as they'll age well with the kiddos. Meanwhile, patterned pillows, poufs and rugs ensure that the space is colorful and full of interest -- without the long-term commitment!

Blue Boys' Playroom with Durable Furniture and Materials

The goal for this space was to create a room that both adults and children could be comfortable in. With the homeowners' two small boys, the space would need to contain durable fabrics and materials, so designers chose a sectional that could easily be wiped clean with lots of multicolor pillows for comfort. Then, they had a stylish, nylon carpet installed that won't stain and would match the aesthetic of the room, while remaining practical.

Multicolored Playroom With Slide

Kid art all over the walls, a loft and a slide (yes!) fill this playroom with whimsical energy. The loft also maximizes use of the space as beneath it, there's enough room for a play kitchen and storage.

Bold Colored, Geometric Playroom

These homeowners needed a fun space that both their little boys and little girl could play and feel welcome in, so designers created a space full of bold, gender neutral colors and a design that focused on gender neutral, geometric shapes. With plenty of storage and toys for boys and girls hanging on the wall, this playroom is perfect for the pair of brothers, their sister and their parents to enjoy.

Whimsical Playroom

Spell out words with personalized pillows and turn photo cubes into counting blocks. Capture your little artist’s drawings in pillows and desk plaques. A wall decal of the U.S. makes a fun learning activity, too.

Dream Playroom Features Teepee, Rope Swings and Floor Cushions

Chango and Co. created every child's dream play space in this expansive playroom. Floor mattresses line one wall and are topped with playful throw pillows for crashing, a teepee provides a place for dreaming, and rope swings hang from the ceiling for extra fun. A bold Swiss cross pattern livens up the walls, and black trim highlights the architectural features of the room.

Black and White Playroom Designed to Encourage Joyful Play

Designed to encourage joyful play, this expansive play space is packed with fun features that will lift the spirits of all who enter it. The crisp white walls boast a Swiss cross pattern and are trimmed in black to highlight the architectural details of the room. The highlights of the space are the expansive stretch of cushions topped with colorful throw pillows and ceiling-hung rope swings.

Tree With Hanging Chairs Offers Fun Seating in Playroom

Hanging chairs at varying heights transform this load-bearing beam into a "tree" for swinging. Because the branches are made out of metal, they can easily endure twists, pulls and other roughhousing.

Transitional Playroom With Striped Wallpaper

The top floor of this home is Kid Land with bedrooms for the family's two boys and this playroom in between them. The playroom gets a peppy personality from its striped wallpaper and blue and orange palette. There is toy storage, a tv and sofa, and space to do homework or play games.

Colorful Kids Room Seating Area

This little pink corner in the kids room offers lots of comfy seating in crushed gray, fun framed art and a painted mural on the wall. The bright area rug also provides a soft place to play games or read books.

Plenty of Texture in Eclectic Girl's Bedroom

Fun meets sophistication in this eclectic girl's bedroom, outfitted in shades of blush, neutral tones, and lots and lots of texture. She can hide out in the indoor teepee, atop a faux fur rug layered over the pink and gray patterned area rug, or curl up on the upholstered window seat among a sea of throw pillows in varied textures.

Navy and Pink Playroom

The beautiful navy sofa accompanied by lustrous vinyl gray ottoman creates a neutral base for this playroom to come to life. Bursts of hot pink throughout the space-from the artwork to the accessories-bring in a lively, feminine feel, while orange zigzag poufs bring out the orange accents in the artwork, adding to the dimension of the room.

Cottage Entrance to Playroom

As pretty as a picture in a fairy tale, the entrance to this enchanted playroom is a gray shingled cottage complete with window boxes.

Climbing Rope in Little Boys' Playroom

To complete this totally cool boys' playroom, a climbing rope was installed next to the playroom to give the boys a constructive place to burn energy indoors.

Neutral, Versatile Boys' Playroom

Whether it is play, story telling, music or reading, this versatile boys' playroom has a space for everything!

Contemporary Playroom With London Scenes

This creative playroom mixes high style with pure fun! The chalkboard wall was custom painted with scenes from London to honor the family's travels.

Whimsical Playroom with Reading Corner

On the other end of this fun playroom, designers created a reading area for these busy boys, complete with a great collection of children's books on a modern book rack, blue bean bags and something to climb on. More storage lines the right wall in the space, and large, glass front doors allow mom and dad to be able to check on their kids at all times.

Rustic Playroom Features Baseball Theme

Whitewashed cabinets, hardwood finishes and distressed accessories keep the rustic atmosphere in this baseball-themed playroom.

Cheerful Playroom With Outdoor Access

Kids can enjoy both the indoors and outdoors in the playroom. Sliding glass doors offer access to outside, where kids can drive their power wheels and play house. Bean bags scatter the room to provide a place to sit, and a cushioned bench doubles as toy storage to keep the space organized.

Playroom Desk With Yellow Chairs

To make an art and homework station in this happy playroom, designers added a wooden countertop (in eye-catching cherry red) that rests atop two sets of built-in drawers. Hanging metal bins hold pencils, notebooks and more for clutter-free imagining.

Contemporary Playroom With Striped Rug

To maximize seating, the window seat stretches from wall to wall. Underneath, there's cubby space to store toys, blankets, books and more.

Bookcase With Colorful Reading Pods Keeps Playroom Organized

A huge shelving unit spans the length of the wall, with different cubbies to keep books and toys organized. Bright orange and blue pods are built into the design, too, so that the kiddos can read in comfort.

White Children's Playroom With Teepee

Colorful children's artwork and books add whimsy and interest to plain white walls. The tall white storage cabinet keeps toys and art supplies neatly tucked away.

Playroom Comes With Wide-Open Floor Plan

The wall-to-wall shelving unit ensures that the playroom floor is free for games of tag, tumbling and other activities. Once they've had their fun, the kiddos can kick back on comfortable foam furniture -- and maybe even create a fort.

Playroom With Fun, Pastel-Colored Furniture

Upstairs, a playroom gives the kiddos their own space to stretch out. With a sitting area for reading, a table for tea and a desk for crafting, they have everything they could ever need.

Multicolored Eclectic Playroom With Green Lockers

A set of lime green lockers is perfect in the playroom, storage with a bold dose of whimsy! The wild style goes on with a black and white fireplace, blue velvet chair and colorful rug.

Pink and White Transitional Playroom With Bench

The goals for the playroom design? Practicality, lots of comfy seating, clutter control and flexibility (the owners wanted a room that could be adapted as kids get bigger). A cozy built-in bench handily solved two of the needs, upholstered in performance fabrics for better durability and easy cleaning.

Colorful Eclectic Playroom With Turquoise Leather Sofa

A quirky turquoise leather sofa makes lounging look stylish. Dark doors and trim give off a dramatic yet warm and cozy vibe. Comic book pages cover the walls for a playful, unique look.

Neutral Eclectic Kid's Bedroom With Playhouse Bed

An industrial black chandelier adds a mature element to this kid's bedroom but a fun playhouse bed balances out the "grown-up" details. Classic black and white striped curtains won't have to be changed when the little one gets older.

Cheerful Modern Playroom With Multicolored Floral Accents

This colorful playroom features multiple floral accents, including a red, orange and white upholstered sofa with coordinating throw pillows. White and yellow cube shelves offer a spot for storing kids' play things, while a white faux fur rug sits atop the neutral carpet.

Sophisticated Black Playroom With Chalkboard Wall

Lime green cantilevered chairs pop against solid black and gray walls and a white desk. Patterned carpet in complementing tones makes a subtle, but stylish statement. The chalkboard wall allows imagination and creativity to run wild.

Black and White Contemporary Playroom With Chalkboard

By using a black and white color scheme for the walls, carpet and furnishings, this chic playroom lets the accessories bring in the color and character. Shelves with children's books brighten up one wall. On the other, a rainbow of magnets leap out from a chalkboard.

Fun Playroom with a Space for Everything

The playroom for these girls has it all! In one corner, there is a cozy place to read. In the center of the room is floor space for play and a group table for puzzles and games. Finally, there is a space where each girl has her own desk and bulletin board.

Child's Black-And-White Playroom With Accent Wall, Roman Shade

This child's black-and-white playroom features a large, white Roman shade, striped rug, custom-painted accent wall and a daybed with a rail.

Fun & Colorful Playroom With Custom Scrabble Board Wall

The perfect place to learn and create, this playroom uses fun colors and patterns that kids of any age will love. Next to the multipurpose wall that stores games and supplies, the art table features rolled, white craft paper to keep the area neat and tidy in between projects. A custom-designed, life sized Scrabble board is the star of the space.

Give Everyone Time Out

Just like adults, a child needs downtime. Susie Fougerousse, a mother of four and owner of Rosenberry Rooms, a high-end retailer in Raleigh, N.C., says every room should have a special place where the child can go relax, read or play. Consider a seating area by the window, a tent or teepee to create a hiding space, a comfy chair in the corner with a basket of books or a big floor pillow. If you give them the space, they'll use it, enjoy it and give you some downtime, too.

Make a Color Splash With Resilient Flooring

Instead of carpet, wood or tile, try something new for your pre-teen girl's room: laminate or fiber flooring. Today's laminates and fibers come in colorful patterns that fit well with kids' tastes. Your pre-teen might like, for example, her retreat decorated with pretty pink bubbles, like the Bubble Fun design from Tarkett Residential's FiberFloor Easy Living Fun Collection.
