Creative storage solutions and decorating ideas for a boys playroom?
I’m looking to turn our guest room into a playroom for my 3 year old son. I was thinking about painting the room blue and using primary colors to decorate it. There is a neutral laminate on the floor which is great in case my son who loves to paint gets messy. Wondered though if you had any good decorating and storage ideas as well as other items to include in a boys playroom that are age appropriate?
I have some great age appropriate decorating ideas and storage solutions for a boys playroom that incorporates both colorful storage bins as well as gives the room a theme. Primary colors are a great way to organize and decorate a boys playroom.
A nice shade of blue will give your son’s playroom a pleasing backdrop. I’d suggest using Mythic Paint as it’s an environmentally friendly low odor paint ideal for kids rooms. Click here to learn more about the benefits of Mythic Paint. To select a kids paint color check out The Land of Nod Collection of Mythic Paint Colors.
I suggest opting for a shade of blue you love and goes with a variety of different things. If the playroom is on the small side, I would advise you opt for a lighter shade over a darker one. Loving the paint color will also help it stand the test of time as your son grows.
Once you have your paint color selected, I’d recommend you explore the variety of wall decals and peel and stick kids murals available to dress up your son’s playroom. The main benefit of using kids wall decals and mural stickers is that you can easily update the room again without having to repaint. For a good selection peel and stick wall decor ideas visit www.kidswallstickers.net and www.childrensmurals.net.
In addition to kids wall and mural stickers, consider peel and stick chalkboard panels or purchasing a wall easel for your son.
A kids bookcase or a stable shelving unit (one that is secure and won’t fall on your child) is a great place to start. Add in a few storage containers for keeping smaller items organized and grouped together. You can organize your son’s toys by color-coding (e.g. the blue toys go in the blue bin) or by labeling storage bins and baskets with photos or illustrations. As he gets older you can replace the images with words. Smaller storage boxes inside of bigger ones help keep like things organized and contained in one main area.

Keeping toys and books accessible is key for children of this age. You can encourage independence by having your son put away anything he takes out. One idea would to limit the number of playthings he is allowed to take out at one time. If he wishes to play with something different, he first has to put away the toys he currently has out (unless of course, they are meant to be played with together).
Supplying a collection of lightweight kids storage containers will make toys and playthings just as easy to put away as they are to take out. Keep favorite toys on a height appropriate shelf and infrequently played with items can go on higher shelves. If your son has too many toys and has a tendency to be overwhelmed with too much selection, you may want to consider packing some up and storing them away for a month of so and then reintroducing them. It’s a great way to give old toys a new life.
A great way to decorate a kids playroom is by selecting fun yet appropriate toys and furnishings like an easel and cozy chairs, cushions and bean bags. Adding in a kids rug is a great way to bring in more color and/or bring a playroom theme together. For more playroom furniture ideas please visit www.buykidsfurniture.net

Pretty storage containers and decor ideas for a girls bedroom?
I’m in the process of making over my daughter’s bedroom. We just purchased a nice white girls bedroom set complete with a dresser, desk, and tall bookcase. She loves pink and lavender. I am hoping you can point me in the right direction for some pretty storage containers and girls bedding that would match as well as recommend a good kids paint and paint color(s) to use? And, if you have any good girls bedroom decor ideas please share those too.
Pink and lavender are two nice colors to combine in a girls bedroom. When it comes to kids paint colors, kids decor items and storage containers that coordinate, I’d recommend The Land of Nod. It is a great online company that features a great line of quality products for decorating and organizing kids rooms. Above are a few kids storage ideas. Below are some girls bedding sets in pink and lavender. Please click on the individual girls bedroom photos for details and pricing.
As for kids paint colors, I recommend Mythic Paint. It’s an environmentally-friendly low odor paint. The Land o Nod has it’s own personal collection of paint colors to coordinate with their kids bedding and decor accessories. Below, you’ll find some of my favorite pink and lavender paint chips. For a complete list of Land of Nod paint colors, please visit Mythic Paint.
I suggest you pick one main paint color and then add in a secondary color using accessories. Or, create an accent wall by painting one wall, a coordinating color and using it to feature collectibles and keepsakes on a bookcase or decorative shelf.
Your daughter’s bed can also become a focal point depending on the bedding set, headboard and throw pillows you select. Your options are as limitless as your imagination.
