How to create a stylish playroom without breaking the bank

It’s not an easy choice to dedicate a whole room in your house to the kids and their toys, but it certainly can be a great way to keep all the clutter and mess in one room (behind closed doors). However, just because the room belongs to the kids, that doesn’t mean you can’t introduce a few stylish finishing touches that the kids will love just as much as you do. Here’s how to create a stylish playroom – without breaking the bank.

Scatter cushions
Scatter cushions are a great way to inject some colour and fun into the space – plus the kids will love sitting and napping on them after playtime. Choose playful prints and fun trims like pom-poms and tassels for texture and to enhance their creativity. We love the range of scatter cushions at Arlo & Jacob, including this bright pom-pom trimmed cushion by designers Safomasi. If you’re looking for some stylish storage, Arlo & Jacob also have a range of blanket boxes and storage footstools that make for excellent toy boxes and secret hideaways.

Beanbags are almost a playroom essential, and this bright patterned number from Nobodinoz brings a little Scandinavian chic to the room. Ideal for jumping, playing, napping and curling-up on, they’ll be a welcome addition to any little one’s playtime. These beanbags can be purchased at Scandiborn, along with a delightfully youthful range of teepees, toys and other stylish playroom pieces.

Speaking of teepees, we can’t resist this colourful and oh-so-cute little number from Cult Furniture. Fill it with cushions, and you’ve got yourself a make-shift den that’s ideal for hide-and-seek or movie nights with their little friends. We guarantee, that if you lose track of your kid’s hiding place – they’ll probably be in here every time! Failing that, it might also become your favourite hiding spot for a few minutes peace and quiet.

Whether you’ve got a carpeted or wooden floor, a fun and colourful rug should never go amiss in a children’s playroom. We’ve gone hopping mad for this cute little character by H&M Home, and it’s very affordable too. Made from 100% cotton, it’s a great choice for children’s delicate skin, plus it has genius little anti-slip protectors on the back.


Available in grey and pink, these cute little townhouse bookshelves from Great Little Trading Company, will make tidying up just as much fun as playtime. They’re stylish and smart, but still have the quirky design that makes them ideal for your little one’s playroom. Whether you use them for books or toys, they will certainly be a fun and whimsical addition to the room.
