RL Picks: Hardware Finds for the Kids’ Room

From wall stickers to fun games – you’ll never run out of items to add to your tots’ personal space


Head out to the nearest hardware store for simple yet charming finds that you can add to your children’s room. Who said that the hardware is a place for adults only?

“Depots can be a one-stop shop for your home and the good thing is that there are great finds and a variety of brands that you could choose from depending on your budget. They actually carry quality materials for interior finishes…but you really have to scour everything.”— Rod Lascano, interior designer

Picks by Paula de Guzman, Dagny Madamba, and Tala Singson. Photographed by Louie Aguinaldo, Kurt Alvarez, and Dairy Darilag.
