Moving Tips: Creating a play area for children

Creating a play room for kids first may be best after moving in.

Creating a play room for kids first may be best after moving in.

The packing and moving process can be difficult, especially when you have young children. If you want to remodel the home when you move in, it is important to keep your kids out of the way of the work being done. By prioritizing the creation of a playroom for the kids, you may have an easier time getting larger projects done alone.

It could be a good idea to put a large number of the child's toys in the room, as this could lessen the chances of the child leaving everything around the home. By telling them that this room is where the toys belong, it could be a positive experience. If they like watching movies or playing video games, a television in the room may help keep them occupied and help them really enjoy their extra space.

Keep the room childproof. If you can't keep an eye on your kids playing in there, you may want to be sure they have nothing that can be climbed on or torn from the walls. Hanging low pictures and curtains may be a bad idea for this room. However, items such as toy chests and a couch could be great to ensure they aren't doing anything they shouldn't.

It is important to not just think about the present, as your kids will grow up. While you may want to paint the room an inviting, kid-friendly color, it could be a bad idea to cover it in wallpaper fit only for a smaller child. Not only will your kids likely complain about it as they get older, but when they don't use it any longer, you may want to make the room into something everyone in the family can use, such as an office or computer room.
