After revealing the entire playroom I wanted to do a dedicated post for the under the stairs playhouse. This playhouse is a playroom all in itself and it’s too good to lump together in one large post. SO here is our under the stairs playhouse tour for you! 

 

Playroom Reveal 

If you missed my previous playroom reveal you can see it HERE. OR you can see a glimpse of the whole space and the design process behind it on our youtube channel below.

The main playroom space is designed for movement. That area is for them to move about and get their wiggles out. So I knew when it came time to set the inside of the under the stairs playhouse up I wanted to make the focus on pretend play. I also wanted to make the space very similar to a real house. That thought track inspired each of the following elements of the space. Together the whole playhouse incorporates every kind of pretend play a kid could dream of! Then once you leave the playhouse you enter our playroom which again is supposed to resemble the “outdoors” with the playset!

Modern Play Kitchen

The play kitchen is one of the main focuses of this space. I love this Ultimate Corner Play Kitchen by KidKraft because it is big enough for two kids to play. It also stores all the playfood easily. The selling point for me was the pretend washing machine. This really had all the fun “pretend” aspects to it in one corner piece which makes for the best use of space.

Kids Table And Chairs

We put this Delta Children’s Kid’s Bistro Table and Chairs under the loft to create a “kitchen table” feel which compliments the play kitchen. This table is also where they can do puzzles or even play with their Educational Insights Talking Globe. 

 

Inside Play Fort For Kids

As if the playhouse needed to be any cooler, there is an actual loft inside! Right over the play table there is a loft. It is here that we have our Malia Mu knotted raft for extra comfort as well as their knotted pillow. This space is meant to create a cozy feeling space to relax or read in. Similar to a bedroom in a house! See, I really did think of everything (HA!) I have a feeling the boys will claim this fort as their own someday but for now the girls are loving having it to themselves!

Mommy/Daddy And Me Pretend Play

Towards the back of the under the stairs playhouse we have a kind of awkward space as the ceiling gets quite low. I specifically asked them to go as far back as they could with the flooring and while the guys laying the floor may have not liked it, I love having this extra space! I decided to use this space for the baby doll accessories that my kids love! We have a cute little toy baby crib and toy baby changing station (which we store all their baby clothes, bottles etc inside of!) Then we added this adorable  Cubino Loveseat by MonteDesign and it is the perfect size for the playhouse!

Dress-Up Storage

 

Shown in the video above we have this Guidecraft Dress-up Carousel  in the corner for the kids to store all their dress-up gear. It spins and is perfect for space saving which we needed for this space!

All together this playhouse creates the perfect space for all of our kids’ imaginations to sore! We all love how it turned out and we are so excited to have it for years to come. What is your favorite part?

  • This is Montessori
Not a toy cleaning set. 
Montessori is a step stool so they can reach things in the kitchen. 
Not a play kitchen with fake food. 
It’s peeling oranges and chopping vegetables. 
While we have our fair share of pretend play toys that my children do love to play with, just know that Montessori happens right here. It’s practical life from an early age. It’s letting them be involved even if it’s messier, takes longer or totally messes with your own OCD. I’m noticing a trend of more brands labeling their items as “Montessori” toys as it becomes more popular of a term. So consider this a tiny PSA or at the very least a reminder that children are WAY more capable than we give them credit for sometimes. So hand them a broom. Have them put their dishes away. Get them involved. They’ll remember ✨ #thisismontessori #earlychildhoodeducation
  • I’m sorry but Beau is TOO DARN comfortable holding that rose and giving cheek kisses...well, excuseeee me Casanova child 🥰 🌹 (swipe for reference!) He was born a lover! They all were, it’s that Italian blood 💗 Happy Valentine’s Day from my loves to yours! #valentinesday #mylittleloves #heartbreaker
  • Valentine’s Day cards are all done for their classmates and love is in the air around here! Lo can’t help but smuggle us all in her kisses and it’s our favorite thing to look forward too 💗 These adorable ‘Lettuce Edge Top & Leggings Set’ are by @chloeandcami 🎉
  • There are days I don’t even walk in to our playroom. Days like today actually, when I know the mess behind the doors is more than I have the energy to deal with. With 4 young kids this room can turn upside down in a matter of minutes, and honestly...that’s what it’s there for. While I sure do feel a lot better when it’s cleaned, I also know at the end of the day 4 tiny humans had some fun in here and their mess is the proof. I’m not sure if you need to hear it or not but close that door, save the mess for another day and try not to stress too much about it because having a perfectly polished home and a house full of little ones isn’t exactly an easy task 💗  There will be a day when this room won’t be filled with toys and I’d rather enjoy the chaos now then long for it later! ...Maybe this is just my excuse to not clean tonight 🤣 #playhouse #buildingcasabryant
  • Do you know what day it is?! (Nope, not hump day 😂) It’s the digital release day for @disneyfrozen 2 and we’re celebrating with an outside movie night using our @cinemood_usa ❄️ I have to say thanks to our amazing friends at Disney for sending us this fun filled Frozen 2 package including the blue-ray DVD and a bunch of fun #FrozenFanFest extras ☃️ The girls want to have their friends over soon to throw a real viewing party but until then they’ll be dancing around here in their @miniandmeofficial Elsa & Anna dresses matching their dolls, watching Frozen 2 on repeat and singing ALL the songs! This CINEMOOD really brought us the cinema experience right in our own backyard (or technically our screened in lounge area bc ya know, bugs🤣) Pretty sure I’d be forever happy with nights just like this ❄️ /Digital release is today and blue-ray DVD is Feb 25th! Are you excited to grab your copy!? /AD/ #Frozen2 #cinemood #ilovecinemood
  • “A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.” If there was ever a perfect quote to represent how this weekend felt this would be it! 30+ bloggers getting together could have gone two of which ways but every single one of these girls was just simply amazing! I came back from this trip with more confidence in myself, my blog, the community I want to foster and it just simply feels GOOD! Get yourself a crew that makes you feel like this, when women support each other amazing things can happen! I have a full blog post up now (linked in bio) with a run down of our girls trip, where we stayed, what we did and all the yummy eats! Check it out!! Also double tap if you see what is so special about this picture!! #Noelle #alltidesrisetogether #RRNashville2020
