Must-Have Children's Playroom Furniture

If you have a spare room in your home, you may consider turning this into a playroom for your little ones. There is no denying that providing them with a space where they can keep all of their toys and play together is a brilliant idea and you can guarantee that they will love it too. No matter what size this spare room may be, you will be able to create a fun and inviting room that your children love to spend time in. Whilst you may have lots of ideas when it comes to decor and accessories, it isn’t uncommon for parents to get stuck when it comes to knowing what furniture they should have in this room. Of course, unlike other rooms in the home, a playroom is incredibly versatile in this regard and you can adapt it to meet the needs of your little ones. However, to help parents who are looking for some inspiration, we have put together a list of what we would call ‘must-have’ children’s playroom furniture.

Toy boxes

Arguably, this is one of the most important pieces of children’s playroom furniture. You may find that you need a couple of big boxes for toy storage, but there are plenty of incredible designs to choose from nowadays. As well as having classic hard-top toy boxes, you may want to consider soft fabric toy bags as well, depending on what you're storing, it can be good to mix and match.

Bean bags

Whilst this doesn’t technically fall under the category of children’s playroom furniture, there is no denying that a big bean bag or floor cushion takes up a fair bit of space, so it is worth putting on this list. A bean bag is a brilliant alternative to a small sofa or seating area and it will help to create a cosy ‘chill out’ vibe in the room. You can guarantee it will get lots of use.

Desk and chairs

Many parents choose to have a children’s desk and chair in their little ones’ playroom and it is undeniably a brilliant choice for this space. This piece of furniture will come in very handy for lots of fun activities like painting and drawing, but it can also be used for things such as homework too as your children get older. Often, a children’s desk and chair will be considered a staple.


This is a commonly found piece of furniture in children's playrooms. Aside from the obvious, using a bookshelf to store books, you will be surprised how versatile this piece of furniture can be. You will be able to display lots of other bits and bobs, such as board games, here too and even use it to display some of your children's favourite items.

Tipi tents

It is no secret that children love making dens and a tipi tent can provide them with their own little hideaway. There are so many beautiful play tents on the market these days and they really are a brilliant addition to any playroom. You can simply pop them in the corner of the room and make a den area. Of course, it will stop them from causing havoc by making their own dens too.

Chest of drawers

Whilst commonly associated with clothes storage, having a chest of drawers in a playroom is actually a brilliant idea. These drawers are the perfect height for your children to be able to get things out of them safely without needing your help. Of course, you can use the top of these drawers for more storage or even for decorative items as well.

Purchasing children’s playroom furniture

There is no denying that any of the items mentioned above will be brilliant in a playroom. When deciding what to purchase, remember to think carefully about not overloading the room. It is important to have free floor space for your children to actually play on, so consider which items are most suitable for the playroom you’re creating and your children’s needs.
