Designer Justine Sterling transformed a low-ceiling basement space in a 1920s Colonial to create a studio. It’s a walkout basement with two windows providing decent light, but it was very ugly with exposed pipes, a horrible acoustic tile ceiling and old sticky vinyl flooring. At roughly 450 square feet, there was a good amount of space to create a project room for the children. The room is now a lively children's workspace.
Elevated, built-in storage cabinets offer plenty of space for kids to store their art supplies and artwork in this modern art room. Multicolor stripes add fun color and pattern to some of the storage cabinets, and there's ample room to create art at the kid's table nearby.
This space was located at the basement of the house and was originally dark and unorganized. By adding bright sunshine-colored paint to the walls, a fun fabric sofa and framed kids' artwork, the room becomes cheery and inspiring!
A bulletin board hangs by the door, allowing the owners to display their kids' art and report cards or leave behind encouraging notes. With its metallic finish, the piece also makes the space feel a little more sophisticated.
If youâ€™re looking for a spot to express your creative side as a family, your coffee table may be the perfect place. Protect the surface with a table cloth or a large flat weave rug by placing a drop cloth or roll of craft paper beneath it. Next, lay out painting or crafting supplies with a cohesive color scheme among vessels.
While mattes are an important element of framing original art, they're not always necessary for dressing up children's pieces. To ensure the intended effect of children's drawings or paintings is achieved, remove matte inserts to keep the full surface of each piece showcased properly.
This small, wooden table and chairs is the perfect place for kids to be creative. Thin stones are stacked to the ceiling surrounding the glass fireplace. A thin bookshelf finishes the wall next to a white sliding barn door.
This space is all about creating an imaginative, fun and plush space for the kids to dream. The art room by extension was all about the same interactive touch and feel aspect. Creating a space for the kids to create was the base of the vision.
Storage space allows this play area to stay organized, keeping this family room open and inviting. The white and yellow walls create a bright atmosphere and allow the bright colors from the toys and kid-themed art to pop. Beige carpet softens the floor next to the lovely light wood hallway.
Designer Tawna Allred created this delightful kids' bedroom for her two daughters. Allred used her extensive background as a professional oil painter to repaint her daughters' drawings onto canvases for a personalized touch.
This modern kids' playroom features frame-patterned wallpaper and an art desk with a pair of apple green chairs. The top of the desk slides forward to provide extra storage while allowing for plenty of space to draw, paint or read.
