If you have a child with a mental or physical illness, disability, or development issue, you will want to give them the best chance to play and develop. As a parent to a son with ADHD and autism, I know that it can be challenging to keep little ones entertained. Below you will find a few tips on how to decorate your child’s playroom to make the most out of the space and create a safe sanctuary.

Make It Inspiring

Whether your child is interested in cars, trains, or princesses, run a theme through the room. You can create an indoor tent in the shape of their favorite animal or object to encourage them to play in there. Avoid dull and boring, and add vivid colors. If your child gets mood swings or needs time out, they will enjoy the environment that allows them to focus on something new and interesting.

Make It Interactive

There are great interactive toys designed for small kids that stimulate their senses and improve their imagination. If your child suffers from autism, you might want to get some specialist toys and building blocks that will keep them focused for longer. They might not enjoy sorting through different colors, but hate jigsaws. Find something that interests your child and keeps them occupied and focused for more than just a few minutes.

Add Music

It is also important that you stimulate the senses of your child through music. You can get old mechanical music equipment or modern features with added light and mood lighting. Check out Vinyl Vintage for the perfect addition to your child’s playroom. You might get some musical toys, talking pictures, but nothing too scary.  Get some drums so they can experiment safely, or a xylophone to help them make some noise when they want to release excess energy.  

Keep it Safe

Safety should come first, no matter if your child is playing in the room alone or with friends. When choosing playroom furniture, you should avoid sharp corners and hard surfaces. Instead of wooden or tiled floor, you might want to install some foam padding in the room, so  – even when they are jumping around- you can avoid accidents. You must also keep all the plugs blanked off, unless they are used. Alternatively, you might place them high up where your child can’t reach.

Craft Together for Decoration

To customize the space, you can sit down with your child to design the room decor. Whether you are choosing the wallpaper, make the canvas pictures together, or paint a picture, you can have loads of fun and make sure that your child’s ideas are included in the design.

If you would like to make sure that you are creating an inspiring and an educational playroom for your little one, you will have to pay attention to the details and the interactive features. From retro music features to themed decoration and mood lighting, you can add personalized features that will make the room feel safe and homelike.
