Tips for Designing Your Custom Playhouse

You’ve decided to invest in a custom playhouse for your little one.  Now what?  You try to remember what it was like to be a kid in an adult world.  What was fun back then?  Where did your imagination take you?  For some of us, the idea of transforming into that time may suddenly seem difficult to recreate.  What started out as an idea for an exciting new project has now turned into one more stressful item on our adult to-do list.  But, good news—it doesn’t have to be.

Lilliput Play Homes, a recognized leader in the design and construction of children’s playhouses, has the time, experience and skilled craftsmanship to work with you on creating the most magical memories for your child. Working closely with the team at Lilliput will not only help you to create a one of a kind playhouse for your son or daughter, but will make you feel like a kid all over again.  From cozy cottages to princess castles to pirate ships and kids’ clubhouses, our intricately detailed playhouses have been making children’s playhouse dreams come true all over the world.  Before you begin the magical journey into your child’s imagination, we suggest the following:

Involve Your Children in the Design

Consult your own little customer—they know how they like to play best! Involve your children in the design process.  Not only will you come closer to their dreams of the perfect playhouse, but it provides a special time to bond and create magical moments with your little ones.  At Lilliput Play Homes, we provide a custom playhouse design service in addition to offering several pre-designed playhouses.

Incorporate the Likes of Your Children into the Play Home

Encourage your children to be the interior designers of their playhouse and incorporate their likes in every aspect.  Should you include stairs, steps, a loft, multiple rooms or a play area? For those interested in a customized playhouse are looking for ideas, consider some of the following we have created:

  • Batcave
  • School
  • Pirate Ship
  • Lighthouse
  • Rocket Ship

If your children can dream it, we can make it happen.

Make Color and Style Choices that are Kid and Neighborhood Friendly

Even though playhouses are designed with kids in mind, we understand that outdoor playhouses can be visible to many.  Our beautifully crafted playhouses are designed with colors and style that are inviting to children and aesthetically pleasing to adults.  Some homeowners have even chosen to create a playhouse that is an exact replica of their house!   Some of the most common style choices include:

  • Tudor
  • Spanish
  • Colonial
  • Federal
  • Contemporary
  • Victorian

Incorporate Accessories

Last, but not least, incorporate accessories to transform your child’s house into a home. Giving a child the freedom to choose the artwork (or make it!) or select a cozy bed for their favorite doll lets them make it their own.  Looking for furnishings to complete your home decoration project?  Lilliput Play Homes has a variety of beautiful accessories to complement any style playhouse, which include:

  • Arm Chairs
  • Custom Kitchen
  • Fireplaces
  • Diner Booths
  • Chaise Lounges
  • Antique Stoves
  • Dining Table and Chairs
  • And Much More
