Think as if you’re designing your home when decorating your child’s playhouse.
Find a piece of cloth, for instance, colourful fabrics, then dress up the windows with it to add privacy and prevent strong sun rays from entering. By adding some home-made curtains, this also will make your kids feel at home.
Tip: Choosing a fabric is a fun activity to do together with your kid. Give them the freedom to pick their favourite colour or patterns.
4. Log Cabin Playhouse: Spruce Up the Lighting
Whether your child is into storybooks or you’re struggling to get them to find reading enjoyable, giving them a small reading nook as an addition to the interior of the playhouse can help them foster the habit of reading!
Allot a comfy space which is just large enough for your little ones, and allow them to exercise their imagination by adding basic bench seating. A simple bench can be their designated spot where they can lay back and read their favourite books.
You can either purchase a bench from a retail store like Garden Buildings Direct, or take the DIY approach!
6. Log Cabin Playhouse: Storage. Storage. Storage.
To keep your children’s playhouse clean and neat, don’t forget to add storage! You can use industrial wire baskets or any other kind of container, and put them below the bench seating to save space.
What’s good about having organiser storage is that it’ll give your little ones easy access to their favourite toys while at the same time, keep everything concealed and in place.
7. Log Cabin Playhouse: Go for the Basics with Flooring
Playhouses are meant for playing, so there’s no need to spend too much money on some fancy flooring. Instead, our experts suggest opting for the basics.
By basics, we mean opting for a vinyl sheet flooring in a graphic pattern like stripe or checkerboard. Or, you can choose between plain and bold colours – whichever style pleases your children.
8. Log Cabin Playhouse: Consider Adding Craft Spot
Other than role-playing as princesses, knights or superheroes, children love to draw and do some craft activities. So make sure to provide them with a chair, e.g. repurpose an old coffee table, so they can do their crafts and have their own workstation.
Choose round tables, since they’re safer than the traditional rectangular/squared shape table, as they’re free of sharp edges.
You can also add chalkboard paint on top of the table to create a built-in drawing surface. This is a great way to remind your kids not to draw on the wall surfaces!
Other than playhouses, if you own a shed, you could transform it into a hobby room for your little ones. Alternatively, you could provide them with homeschooling essentials such as a study desk and chair, whiteboard or chalkboard stand.
