Now, more than ever the spaces in our homes have become fluid spaces. Almost everyone is living, learning, playing, and working all from the comfort of their own home. As we embark on the journey of homeschooling during a pandemic, creating a playroom for kids is a must. Young children learn through play thus creating a space in which they can express themselves is of utmost importance.
Factors to consider:
Playrooms can be found in the most unlikely of spaces. In other words, not all homes come equipped with a large room out of the way of visitors for playrooms. Sometimes, converting an extra bedroom, dining room, office, or another unused space into a playroom is our best option. One of the caveats of doing so is that often these rooms are in plain view of guests. Thus finding pieces that are sleek, modern, and elegant is important. Pieces that don’t feel as much as gaudy toys but more complementary to your decor style.
There are such a wide array of decor styles to consider when designing a playroom for kids, luckily websites like Scandiborn create a wide variety of toys that fit with any decor style. Here you can find everything from farmhouse looks to modern. We love the look and simple, natural color scheme of the Kid Concept Play Kitchen. The design and neutral tones promote flexibility and thus makes this the perfect kitchen for all. This piece is intricately created with an all-wood design that blends perfectly with a variety of decor.
Learning Through Play
Children create, learn, and explore through play. Providing spaces that encourage exploration and play is important. Through play, children learn vital concepts about the world by simply doing what is natural. Blending the ideas of everyday activities such as cooking with play, our children develop skills for the natural world. The Kid Concept Play Kitchen in Natural/White is simply beautiful and encourages hours of play for all ages.
