For the Kids: Crucial Forts Inside

Children spend a lot more time indoors this time of year, and they need their own space. My brother and I left our own secret fort beneath our basement’s staircase when we were children. All it required was a carpet remnant on the floor, a lot of paint to decorate the backs of their risers and a notebook to record our secret meetings and create plans. For what, I have no idea, however, we had been outside of our parents’ hair. Here is how designers are creating some clever secret forts for children today.

An individual needn’t feel as though they need an amusement-park-worthy tree inside to keep children happy. A tent-like canopy above a bunk bed or loft is actually all it requires.

Grownups like secret temples also, which is what makes this layout by LabExperiment and Aldea Home for Dining by Design a lot of fun. It shows us how much we can create with cardboard.

Over Thanksgiving and I watched a friend make a fort for his 3-year-old son in the box their brand new TV console arrived in. He did it using an Exacto knife in about 10 minutes. Shortly after he cut a doorway , the astute toddler was inside, ordering up a window and a skylight.
