Storage tips for the kids’ playroom


The playroom can be one of the most enjoyable and amusing places for your kids to have fun and express creativity throughout the day. As a parent, however, it can seem like a disjointed mess that’s just waiting to burst at the seams. If you get anxiety every time you enter or simply walk by the playroom, keep reading.

Organization is key for any recreational living space, but especially the playroom. Every toy, trinket, puzzle piece and stuffed animal deserves its own space, and the right storage options and arrangement methods can ensure this remains true.

With the holiday season on its way, now’s a great time to reorganize before the next haul of presents meets the playroom. Here are a few storage tips for your kids’ favorite living space:

1. Start with a clean slate
The key to reorganization is creating a clean foundation for the rest of the room to thrive. Take some time to go through all of the toys with your children and decide what stays and what goes. This is an optimal opportunity to donate the items your kids haven’t touched in months – another great gesture around the holiday season.

2. Invest in multifunctional furniture
No matter the size of your playroom, less is more is a wise phrase to follow when it comes to furniture. That way, your children have more room to roam and have fun. Multifunctional furniture allows you to achieve this by giving your children a place to play and relax while also working as a storage space. For instance, a hollow ottoman is a great space to lounge while it also stores toys and other items.

3. Consider new storage options
Beyond your new and improved multifunctional furniture, there are plenty of other storage options to consider. Customized storage systems can be installed in your home based on the size of the space, your style and your overall objectives for the playroom. Wall storage always comes in handy as well – the right set of shelving allows you to utilize the vertical space while also adding some personality to the walls.
