We offer two services regardless of location. The differences between the options is how much you need our Smart Playrooms team to be on-site and how much you need our team to be involved with the actual buildout of the space.
E-Design: Custom design and we send digital files, including 3D renders, clickable shopping lists and CAD drawings for build out.
Bespoke Design: Custom design and we work with you every step of the way. Measuring, designing, purchasing and project managing. This option also includes ongoing consulting via phone or on-site and design revisions.
Both of our SMART playroom services are specific to your space and your children's ages, interests and needs.
The signature Smart Playroom's Bespoke design process is an immersive and collaborative design experience that our clients adore. Our experienced and talented Smart Playrooms team will handle all steps in the design process: measuring the space, choosing all furnishings, wall decor, and equipment, being available for ongoing consultations by phone or email, space planning and layout, overseeing the installation process.

The Smart Playroom Difference
Former Teachers are our Playroom Designers
Unlike other interior designers, all of our designers are former teachers with MASTERS DEGREES IN EDUCATION. We understand how to engage children in purposeful play. All of our smart playrooms become in essence the THIRD TEACHER and organically give your children exactly what they need just by how we design the space.
Development and Sensory Needs
Our spaces are designed to stimulate all senses, focusing on touch, sight, hearing and movement
Our playrooms integrate organizational systems that all kids and adults can easily maintain
Playrooms are organized and designed to encourage independence and a LESS IS MORE philosophy
We design all spaces to engage children NOW and for the next 10 years. Our expertise and years of experience are incorporated into every design. We understand how kid's interests will change over the years.
Reggio Emilia Approach
Our layout and where all materials, equipment and furnishings are purposefully placed so children play for longer periods of time and become completely focused in their play

If you have ever heard the term EDUCATIONAL DESIGN you have our Founder Karri Bowen-Poole to thank. The idea came to her in the middle of the night, and after 12 years of teaching in elementary classrooms as well as several years as a mom observing her friend’s poorly designed playrooms, she knew she was on to something. As the Founder of Smart Playrooms, Karri has spent the last 10 years revolutionizing the way children learn and play with her kids’ playroom design services.
"We were thrilled to have Smart Playrooms advice in organizing and executing an efficient space that made playing, reading, crafting and learning together comfortable and fun."
"We loved working with Smart Playrooms in Mendocino, California!! Karri and her team helped design an incredible playroom for our 4 children. From the initial meeting, to the design process to the finished installation, it was an absolute pleasure working with Karri. She was super friendly, very knowledgeable and we trusted her vision throughout the process.We highly recommend Karri and her team for any Bespoke hands on project.
