How to Create the Perfect Playroom
Bigjigs Toys have been creating perfect playrooms since 1985. If you have a baby on the way or simply want to overhaul your little one’s nursery or playroom, stay tuned for the best nursery and playroom design ideas.
1. Choose A Theme
Whether it be nautical, safari, space or beach themed, choose something that reflects your child’s interests and unique personality. Themes can also be adjusted with a lick of paint and a change of decor at a later date when your little rascal grows up. You could play it safe with a good old neutral white or grey shade if a colourful theme scares you!
2. Chill Out Zone
When playtime is over, having a comfy spot to relax in is as important as having your child’s favourite toys in their playroom! Opt for a soft chair or beanbag and add plenty of snuggly blankets and squishy cushions.
3. Secret Den
No playroom design is complete without a secret den! For a den assembled in minutes, our FSC Certified Teepee comes with wooden poles that easily slot together. Complete with curtains, our adorable teepee tent is everything your kids needs to make an instant den in their nursery or bedroom.
4. Toy Storage
Cupboards, shelves, alcoves and toy chests are your best friends for keeping toys safely stashed away. It’s good to consider a workspace for a playroom too, as this can also act as additional toy storage. Children’s table and chairs can store stationery and arts & crafts toys on top of it, with teddies and plush dolls stowed away on the seats.
5. Cosy Reading Corner
Reading time is a chance for children to bond with their parents whilst it’s also a key part of their early development. Choose a light corner and place lots of easy to reach books on a bookshelf. You could stick wooden letters on the shelf to organise the books from A-Z. This can also help kids to grasp the alphabet by physically seeing the letters in front of them.
6. Chalkboard Wallpaper
Drawing on the walls is every parents’ worst nightmare, but with chalkboard wallpaper, it can be every parents’ dream! Little hands can write and draw on the walls with chalk without the need for them to be torn down. It encourages creativity and is a unique design element that keeps memories alive forever. If chalkboard wallpaper is a step too far, opt for a classic art easel instead!
Wooden Toys That Make Great Playroom & Nursery Decor
A playroom and nursery can be both stylish and functional! We’ve picked our favourite wooden toys that kids will not only love to play with but can also be displayed as decor when playtime has finished.
Rainbow Stacking Toy
Made from solid wood, our Natural Rainbow Stacking Toy has 11 wooden arches with soft warm hues. Display it on a floating shelf, chest of drawers or bookshelf to add a natural touch to any room.
Noah’s Ark Toy
The animals went in two by two, hurrah! Our beautiful wooden Noah’s Ark is a showstopping piece to have on display in the nursery or playroom. It comes with Noah and his wife plus 10 animals - why not have a bit of fun and set up a lovely scene of the animals boarding?
An iconic staple of playrooms and nurseries around the world, our cord and wooden Rocking Horse is ready to trot (or should we say ‘rock’) off on an adventure with its favourite little rider. It comes with a removable safety guard to adapt to the needs of your growing tot and would look right at home in the corner of the playroom.
Wooden Number Blocks
A perfect addition to a playroom or nursery shelf, our colourful FSC Certified Number Blocks are perfectly sized for little hands. Arrange in numerical order from 1 to 10 to show off the different colours and bold patterns.
