First when creating a playroom evaluate the available space and think about what you would like to create within that area. Whether an upstairs attic, a finished basement, bonus room in newer construction; you can have a great space for the kids to play.
Next would be deciding on a theme and color. A neutral gender friendly room is always a plus when creating a playroom. You may create areas within the area to make gender specific toy sections. Always start with a washable good quality paint and color that will compliment the brightness or therefore lack of sunlight in a room. Consider painting the closet as well since in some cases it can be used for open storage of toys and videos. Next would be the floor coverings; some like Berber carpet while other clients love the look of wood flooring with kid friendly area rugs. I personally like to use wood flooring with different area rugs for appropriate sections if the space allows.
After the paint and wall colors have been decided and completed; now it's time to bring in the fabrics on the windows. Consider choosing a child friendly shade or curtains that could just be pulled over to one side at night or in the case of bright sunlight. When picking out lighting for the room; one might opt for a ceiling fan with a light kit. Another item to think about when designing a playroom is shelving. Shelves installed on the upper portion of a room are great to not only provide storage for once played with beloved dolls, etc but for decorating purposes as well.
