The principles of modern playroom design
Tarina’s approach to playroom design is simple, following three core, tried-and-tested principles that deliver great results.
“When we receive a brief, we consider functionality, versatility and sustainability of the design,” she explains. “We consider what the children are interested in and how the family will use the space. Then, we can design a room that will meet their needs now and into the future.”
To meet the functionality needs of a playroom, Tarina says that it’s important to consider your storage requirements so everything can be neatly stowed away. Likewise, with versatility she suggests using decor that will complement the space.
As for the principle of sustainability, Tarina explains that this is about ensuring longevity of the space.
“We want to introduce as much of the child’s personality as possible,” she says. “But then we also consider that their interests and hobbies will likely change over time. So, we keep things fairly neutral so they can be utilised no matter the age of your children.”
Along this vein, Tarina also suggests making mindful purchases for the playroom, rather than chasing the latest trends.
“If you purchase with quality and longevity in mind, you’ll get more use out of the product,” she explains. “It’s always best to stick to your style preferences rather than what is currently trending at the moment. Then you’ll create a space that really reflects your children and their personalities.”
