When it comes to helping your teenager to navigate through life there are a number of things that as parents and carers that we want to ensure we share with them.

If you have been struggling to work from home whilst you have children running around under your feet, maybe bow is the time to create a playroom for them. Playrooms are a great way to keep large toys and games, as well as providing your children with an ideal environment to play in, whatever the weather – where they can make as much noise as they like!
The first thing to do is to find the room to add a playroom. The chances are, you don’t have any spare rooms not in use just hanging around, so you are going to have to create a room. Whether you choose to extend or maybe to add a conservatory for use as a playroom, you want to make sure that the room is large enough for kids to play in.
Converting your garage to a playroom is the perfect solution – if your garage is just a junk storage room at the moment, then this is a great way to add a useful room to your home without having to build a whole new extension – a good clear out and new doors such as these from this garage door are a good start.
Decorate the playroom according to your child’s interests and ages, as well as considering practicality – a wipe clean floor is a much better idea than a carpet for example, but you could add kids playmats which you can easily put in the wash if they get dirty.
Remember the main aim of the room s to create a room where your kids can play and let their imaginations run wild, whilst also being practical and safe.
