We’ve all been there: your beautiful living room has been commandeered by the little minions living in your home. Toys run amuck throughout the house and no space in the home is available for a short reprieve. Wrangling your home back to a place for adults as well as kids can be tough, but the addition of a playroom can help with the task. Although you may not have an existing room that is ideal for your child’s palace, there are many custom room ideas that can easily help create a segregated space for your children to go wild. Take back your home with some of these great custom playroom ideas for your Memphis home.
Are you really using your attic for storage? Many easily forget that most attics have either been created to be a storage area or additional space. Create a cool stairway up to your attic (even a retractable staircase!) and focus on creating a small haven for your children with lots of storage. Install drywall, connect HVAC and put down some tough flooring for your kids to have their own little spot in the home. Use insets in the attic for storage and create extra hideaway areas for the stuff you do actually store in the attic.
Split the Basement
Does your home have basement space? Even if your basement was not originally built to be an additional living space, with a little bit of custom design and a weekend of construction, your basement can become a haven for you children to play! If you have a large enough basement, you can consider installing a faux wall downstairs so you can have a space for your washer, dryer and other necessities that is seperate from the craziness of the playroom.
Are your kids older and able to be more independent. If you have a carriage house on site, this can become a teen cave easily by removing some interior walls and updating some of the design within. This will keep the clutter away from your home and give you the peace and quiet you deserve!
Are you just plain out of space in your home? Adding an addition to your home may be a better option than living in clutter or moving into a new home. Work with a local contractor like MH Akers to determine how an addition can be integrated into your home without damaging the design and flow of the home. This can not only give you the ability to have a children’s space, but possibly even a new space of your own.
