If you have the space for it, a dedicated playroom is a great way to encourage children to play and explore all kinds of creative activities. Kids love colors so one way to make a playroom stand out is to pick out a vibrant color palette and decorate along that theme. Nowadays, there are so many options to add pops of colors, while on a budget too.

Choose from removable wall decals or colorful poufs, lights or wall art. Feature your kids’ favorite colors and boldly display their beloved play toys and things. Getting your child involved in the design and planning process can also be fun and rewarding for them. Take a look at these bright and colorful playroom ideas for some inspiration along the way!

Modern Primary Colors (via Houzz) Sometimes primary colors can seem too “kiddish” but here, they converge into bright modern lines in this contemporary playroom.

Two Colors Playroom (via Houzz) This bright clementine and gray playroom shows you can combine just two colors to make a lively statement and still keep the interior bright.

One Colorful Wall (via Apartment Therapy) This is a fun example of how you can focus on just one wall to really make it stand out and pop by painting it a bold color.

Colorful Toys (via Pinterest) Here’s a way to make your kids’ favorite toys and play items the main attraction. Visually display the most colorful pieces around and you’ll instantly have a fun and inviting playroom.

Bright Decals (via Pinterest) This playroom just pops, largely due the bright vibrant tree decal that sets the stage for all the complementary furnishings around it.

Fun and Colorful (via Decor8) This playroom’s filled to the brim with colorful inspiration. From the teepee to colorful walls with additional colors from the inlaid bookcases. There’s lots here you can pull from to add some color to your own play space.

Colorful Poufs (via Bodie and Fou) Here’s another idea of using a colorful teepee to make your room more lively. What I also love are the colorful poufs and hanging pom poms which are small pieces of accessories that add big pops of fun.
