The playroom (or bedroom) of a child is the center of their universe for the first part of any child’s life. And while technology undoubtedly has the bulk of their attention these days, there’s a few ways to add intrigue and creativity to your child’s mind using none other than their bedroom or playroom door.
- 1. Chalkboard Door. There’s something fun about chalk, despite being able to paint in all the colors of the rainbow on a tablet or iPad, most kids cherish the opportunity to use chalk on a sidewalk. The texture, noise, and colors are hard to imitate with an iPad app. So bring the fun inside using chalk paint on the interior of your child’s bedroom door. In three simple steps: prep, prime, and paint, your child could be on his/her way to creating a whole new world right on their door.
- 2. Art Gallery. If your door has panels or other symmetric spaces, you can use those spaces to display schoolwork, art or photos. An 8-panel door is really just eight places for family and friend pictures. And if you use easy-remove adhesive, you can rotate the pictures with relative easy, keeping your child’s space an every-evolving photo gallery of his/her constantly changing world.
- 3. Storage. A child’s room can become cluttered with bulky toys and books, but creating a simply DIY storage on the back of the door can increase the square footage available in your child’s room for actual play space. If a secure closing option is included on the door storage, clean-up time becomes a safe and easy process. Stores like Ikea and Target have lots of over the door storage options, or you can create your own storage system with the help of online sites like Pinterest and Houzz.com.
