Having kids can either be a blessing or a nuisance sometimes. You worry what will become of your kid when they play outside. The people and environment they are exposed to. You are very concerned about their safety.

Say, if you have an extra room in your home, would you consider changing it into an entertainment room that is kid-friendly? Even if you do not have an extra room to change into one, doubling your kids’ room into a bedroom and a playroom works too.
Here are some entertainment rooms that are worth looking into. Recreation rooms that are worth incorporating into your home.
Turn your kids’ beds into clubhouses
If your house or apartment is one of those that lacks space (read: minimal rooms), try turning your kids’ beds into clubhouses. Scour the internet for clubhouse ideas.

Bed clubhouses does not need to be super expensive. WIth the right budget and a bit of time investment, you can easily make a fort that works as both a bed and a playspace.
Get creative with your bedroom clubhouse ideas. It don’t necessarily look like a fort. As a matter of fact, it can look like a jungle gym.

Your kids can enjoy all that fun, all within a space.
Did we mention it’s convenient too? You may not need to see toys strewn across the living room. Or see toys in any other parts of your home.
Get a bedroom clubhouse. Solves a good chunk of your rowdy and messy kid problems.
If you fear your kids’ safety be compromised, why not use material that is kid friendly? Use material made of wood, such as Kompacplus to build your kids’ clubhouse.
2. Incorporate “playground” elements into your kids’ bedroom
Kids are super active anyway. You may as well bank into that point by incorporating playground elements.
Get creative by including swings, slides, and monkey bars.

Coming from point 1, let your kids have a bit of fun in their own bedrooms. It’s a quick and convenient way to let your kids be really active in the bedroom.
The only downside is that you will have to expect some accidents happening in the bedroom. If you want to mix fun and rest in the bedroom, there’s bound to have some kind of accidents happening. Take prevention measures to avoid having accidents in your kids’ bedroom if you have to.
3. Game & Entertainment Room
Let’s focus less on the bedroom for a bit.

Assuming your home has an extra room that’s sizeable enough, try turning it into a stereotypical entertainment room. An entertainment room that isn’t just family friendly, but an easy place to host your guests for any parties.
Most modern entertainment rooms come with all that amusement arsenal. Pool tables, table tennis tables, bowling lanes, you name it. Heck, throw in a mini theater section for your dedicated relaxation room if you like. Some entertainment rooms even have indoor swimming pools and spas!
For more creativity, include a fish tank in your entertainment room. Its size can be anywhere from the entire length of your room to a centerpiece as a statement decorative piece. Pretty much up to you if you want a fish tank in your recreation room or not.
If your kids are of legal age, go ahead and have a section just for liquor. Kids not yet of legal age? No big matter. As long as you push for parental supervision around your kids drinking liquor, it should not be a problem.
Or you can put your liquor in storage spaces, out of reach and sight of your kids. It may attract less problems in the long run, but keep in mind accidents do happen.
4. A Recreation Room that Doubles as a resting room
Some people turn that extra room into their hobby room. It can be anything ranging from a library, to a painting room, to a music room.

While a hobby room is nothing new, why not throw in a bed or a hammock for you to rest on when you are tired?

If it’s a hobby room specifically made just for your kids, place a few colourful bean bags just for them. Bean bags have whimsical and playfulness attached to it, hence making the environment look and feel less adulty. Not forgetting to mention they are super comfy and easy to shift around.
Or upcycle that old sofa into a “new” sofa bed by customising it. Works well for your hobby room too, anyway.
5. Theatre Rooms
If you have the budget to splurge, why not just dedicate a room just for your theatrical needs?

Theatre rooms are nothing new, it has been around for so many years already.
All you need to do is to invest in a good screen, a great audible and theatre set, and some sofas.
It’s a great idea for a weekend family time. Instead of having to bring your whole family to a cinema to watch a movie with (sometimes unruly) fellow cinema-goers, you can stay in for a film.
Use heavy curtains to block the sunlight (or moonlight) from coming into your theatre entertainment room. For more extra protection, drape or hang it on either side of your theatre system for that cinematic look.
Just look around for the perfect heavy curtain sets for your home cinema. There are plenty of options to fit your needs in the market.
In all honesty, you can more or less go ahead and have any kinds of entertainment rooms in your home as long as you have the budget for it.
There are ways to make your entertainment room more child-friendly as long as you are willing enough to do that research and incorporate the ideas. Most entertainment rooms are child-friendly nowadays, so it shouldn’t be too much of a headache for you.
As long as you and your family are able to get together and have quality time in the premises of your own home, it’s great.
