Whimsical Indoor Tents

I feel like one of the most important aspects of being a kid is using your imagination. I can remember my siblings and I all making forts in the living room using blankets and chairs, and throwing all of our pillows into the tent. Sure, it actually looked like something only a homeless person would spend their time in but to us it was better than our actual bedrooms. But as soon as we woke up in the morning my mom would make us clean it all up and refold all the blankets. Obviously that’s a killjoy and we would have loved to keep it up year-round, right in the middle of the living room.

I thought it was really cool to see that some parents are adding tents into their kids’ rooms so that they can have a fun little hangout spot to just get creative and use their imaginations. I’m not big on camping, but if I do go, the sleeping in a tent aspect is always pretty major for me. Of course you have to have the most comfortable sleeping bag and tons of pillows. One time my sister and I camped with just one blanket and pillow each and we were freezing. It was the saddest thing ever but we just figured out that we’re more of the “indoor camping” sort – and s’mores better be included!

I’d totally have an indoor tent even to this day, although it would have to be more of a “grown up” indoor tent (or not). Some of these more “mature” designs use the ceiling of the room to create the illusion that it’s a tent and some of them look really cool. Other ones I’ve seen have used little reading nooks or alcoves with curtains or some kind of drapery to create an intimate space. Who wouldn’t want to just read or nap in one of those cozy little hideouts?

So what do you think? Yay or nay on the indoor tents?

    I vote yes for an indoor tent. Those tents have personality and are very cute. Even in the living room, it adds a bit of personality to the room. I would not have one in my room.

      Thanks for reading Shelley! Permanent tents in the room isn’t for everyone but they sure do look amazing in pictures :)
