Gbeke Omosebi of Simplicity For Designs renovated her children’s playroom with the help of The Home Depot. These simple and inexpensive touches added a great sense of personality to the room for her kids.
The reveal of our kids’ playroom is here! Completing this playroom has been on our to-do list for awhile. Our kids are growing and we knew it was time to work on this project and have it functional for them.
Transforming the Playroom
I’m excited to share this transformation with home decor products from HomeDepot.com. Not only does our kids’ playroom feels casual, comfy and modern, but there is so much functionality. Best of all, it’s become our kids’ favorite hanging out space!
The playroom is located on the second floor in our home. It’s a pretty large area and I knew I wanted to do something unique with it. On the walls, we added shiplap planks vertically and painted it white for a timeless, airy and modern feel to the space.
Creating a Space for Multiple Uses
We wanted our kids’ playroom to be relaxing yet beautifully styled. The playroom is a space where they should feel safe to play and be creative. We can also use it for family movie nights and for playdates with friends.
We looked for a sofa that was family-friendly, durable and modern. I found this gray upholstered fabric sofa that consists of straight modern lines, and we chose a shade of grey that is perfect for hiding stains. The cushion covers are also removable and machine washable, a must-have feature for a family with little ones.
Picking the Perfect Color Palette
Sticking with a neutral palette, this white kids’ play chair is a great find on HomeDepot.com. They are sturdy and easily wipeable.
Finding the perfect rug for the playroom was a tough one because there were so many attractive options on HomeDepot.com. We also had to have this navy blue striped rug to round out the space. We love the simplicity of the pattern and the bold color won us over.
Finding the Perfect Decor Accents
Friends! Are you like me and love a good set of pillows? We found a great selection of accent pillows at HomeDepot.com. Some of my favorites include this white and black striped pillow, off-white and grey accent tassel pillow and grey squared with tassels pillow.
Every room needs cozy and comfortable throws, and I found this textured throw at HomeDepot.com, too. I love to drape throws on the arm of the sofa for easy accessibility.
To add warm tones into an all-white playroom, I knew I wanted brass light fixtures. This mid-modern brass light fixture was a perfect find at HomeDepot.com. I like the frosted globe to prevent the kids from accessing the hot bulb.
Storage and Organization
In a playroom, the goal is to have adequate surfaces to keep things organized. I installed this floating shelf to organize the children’s stationery.
We all know that a must-have in a kids’ space is adequate toy storage. I found this huge storage basket which was the perfect storage solution. They are durable and flexible so they can accommodate a lot of toys.
Our kids have a lot of artwork that we wanted to display. I found these simple matted frames at HomeDepot.com. I like to mix different colored frames and textures when putting together a gallery wall. Here, I mixed wood frames with white frames and black frames for contrast and in different heights for interest on the walls. Instead of hanging the frames on the shiplap wall, I used this picture ledge shelf (available in multiple lengths) to group and display their artwork.
The ceiling fan was also updated in the playroom to this modern, streamlined and wifi-enabled smart ceiling fan found at HomeDepot.com. We love that it’s simple yet easily controllable by smart devices and the instructions to install it were straight forward but always consult an electrician if you’re unsure of the wiring steps.
We love how our kids’ playroom turned out, with every corner furnished and styled with home décor pieces that fit our style. The space is still kid-friendly, casual and functional. We’re truly excited that our kids can express their creativity in a space they love.
I hope our kids’ playroom inspires you to create a functional and comfortable space for your kids. You can shop all these home decor products on HomeDepot.com.
