Top Tips for Decorating Your Child’s Outdoor Playhouse

As a parent, you want to make your little one’s childhood as magical as possible. An outdoor playhouse is the perfect way to do this as it can capture your child’s imagination and enhance their play.

If you have already made your little one’s dream come true by surprising them with a brand-new playhouse, then you might be looking for tips and ideas on how to decorate it.

Here are our top tips for decorating your child’s outdoor playhouse.

Colourful curtains

Nothing hinders a child’s imagination more than a lack of privacy. Let your child release their creativity in private by adding some colourful curtains.

Colourful curtains can also help to enhance the look of an otherwise dull playhouse, turning it into something much more lively and exciting.

Additionally, curtains are very useful for controlling harsh sun rays during summer.

Miniature furniture

While playhouses are small, they should be big enough to accommodate miniature furniture.

This is your chance to get creative and transform a plain wooden playhouse into an enchanted wonderland for your child. Make sure to ask your child what games they would like to play most in the playhouse as this can help guide you into picking the right furniture for the playhouse.

Perfect for tea parties with friends, why not add kitchen furniture with a few miniature tables and chairs? Or, add a small sofa for them to lounge on or a reading nook for reading sessions. There are so many options to choose from so get creative!

Soft furnishings

To make a playhouse even cosier, it is a good idea to add soft furnishings such as blankets, cushions, beanbags and pillows.

This can also help to add warmth to the playhouse and offer a cosy spot to curl up and nap, watch films or read a book.


A playhouse isn’t a playhouse without lots of toys, so it is a good idea to add some storage options for storing all of your little one’s favourite books, teddies and games.

Shelves are a great way to display all of these toys while also transforming the playhouse into what looks like an actual home.

Not only this but shelves can help to keep your little one’s playhouse neat and tidy in between playtimes.
