Do any of your rooms in the house serve a dual purpose? We have a Dining Room/Playroom, it came about mainly because the kids have too many toys and we still need a place to eat!
It’s currently painted all white which was a quick fix to brighten the room up (as it was previously our bedroom when we gave our room up to little man and I decided black and purple was a good idea!!! Not sure why and it was a pain to paint over), but it’s boring and not coping well with kids! So my idea is to make it colourful but stylish…
I want to tear up the carpet and put carpet tiles down something like this:
Undecided as yet to the pattern I want but the zig zags are pretty neat and will have to go and look at the colours available to me locally.
For the walls – horizontal stripes on the bottom half in hardwearing coloured paint to match the carpet colours like:
With a clear corner protector on the wall to ensure it stays there as that corner always gets bashed with toys and the hoover!
This will then put me in need of new tablemats, glasses and a dining set – such a shame! I’m really looking forward to setting the table properly to match the room:
And finally some funky art for the walls and kids storage boxes such as these:

Thinking the kids could paint a couple of canvases and loving the idea of wooden storage boxes that could be painted to co-ordinate with the walls & carpet tiles!
I’m so excited and can’t wait to start (I think I might be addicted to decorating! Our current bedroom next!)
Would love to hear about dual rooms in your home…
