Toys - Storage and decoration.

Toys - Storage and decoration.

With their enthusiasm and imaginative ways, children bring joy to our lives and make us smile. But they can also cause a little chaos in our homes- especially when it comes to toys. As much as we love our little ones, we don’t necessarily like the clutter of toys competing with our beautifully designed living spaces.

 

What’s the solution to this problem? Combine necessity with style by choosing toy storage that works with the decor in your home. Let’s take a look at some toy storage ideas sure to please even the poshest of design enthusiasts.

1

While organizing and storing toys is easier when they’re limited to the playroom, some families like the flexibility of having playtime in any space. Consider keeping toys your children play with the most in a mobile unit, like these wooden crates.The antique dynamite crates are perfect for little hands to wheel around, and chic enough for you to keep on display

Canvas bins are perfect organization tools for shelving units. They’re available in a variety of sizes, so be sure to choose bins that are at least two to three inches shorter than the shelf opening. That way, they’re easy to slide in and out. Bins that feature the color of the shelving unit in their design, like these blue and white bins create a seamless look.

Don’t worry- you don’t have to go out and buy a special storage unit just for toys. Consider using furniture that’s a little easier to find, like a dresser. Dressers are simple to customize to compliment any room design. With convenient pull handles, they’re also easy for kids to use. And the best part? When your children get older, you can swap out the toys for added clothing storage

If you happen to have built-in shelves in your home, you already have a great starting point for toy organization. Aside from their beauty, built-in shelves help maximize storage potential by allowing you to house toys all the way to the ceiling. Separate toys into plastic or canvas bins and place them on the lower shelves for kid-friendly accessibility. If you plan to use the shelves for more than one purpose, use the higher shelves for books, delicate decor, or anything you want out of easy reach

5

If you like the idea of additional seating, but plan on keeping toys in your child’s bedroom, fun design elements like chalkboard paint make bench storage more appealing to younger tastes. Personalize the bench with your child’s name, or allow them to use their creativity and change it up with doodles or poems

6

Life is unpredictable, and you never know how your storage needs may change. The addition of more children to your family or a move to a different home may call for a reconfiguration of your toy storage system. That’s why a shelving system like this one is ideal. Its flexibility allows you to use a single cubby unit, or stack a few to create custom storage.

With more and more products appealing to savvy and chic homeowners, you no longer have to choose from plain, solid storage bins. There are now an abundance of colors and patterns from which to choose. In a room that features a neutral palette, a pattern like these polka dot bins can add some visual interest
