Today I’m sharing my tips on how to organize your child’s playroom. With the new year here, I’ve decided to get organized, and my playroom is first on the list.
I am sure many of you are overwhelmed with the amount of toys your kiddos received this holiday season, and wondering where to store it all.
When we moved into our house, I knew I wanted a super fun space for my boys to play with all of their toys. We had a “sitting room” that we transformed into a playroom. Anyone with kids would agree this type of room is wasted space. We live in 1.5 story house so the boys bedrooms are upstairs. Since I had 2 kids under 2 years, I wanted to keep them on the first floor during the day! I thought, why not create a space that they’d love. Here are all my finds and tips on how it stays so organized, even with two busy boys.
First off, storage is KEY to staying organized. I found this six cube organizer at Target.
These storage bins from Target hold a ton of stuff and keep a clean look! They’re sturdy and even collapse if you want to take with you somewhere.
It think its also important to have a comfy spot for littles to hangout where they can play on the ground. Just by adding a rug can help create a warm and cozy space.
I love our the train table because it too has a drawer that pulls out for more additional storage. You can find the train table here. I have a system that I try implement to stay organized.
Here are a couple things I ask myself when the declutter process starts…
- Has the toy been played with this month
- Is the toy missing pieces
- Do your kids think it is super special
- Is it broken
- Will a younger sibling play with it
Once I’ve asked myself these questions my playroom seems to stay organized enough to where I am not driving myself crazy with a mother overload of toys!
I also love any type of basket, storage bin, etc. where I can keep all of my kiddos stuffed animals. You can find my gold storage bin here.
I fell in love with this kitchen because it can also be used for storage. You may think it’s strange to buy my 2 boys this, but they love it and who doesn’t love a man that can cook 🙂 It received the 2016 Parents’ Choice Toy of the Year award.
Last but not least a couch that isn’t super fancy because we all know popcorn and movie nights are a must! I found this couch at World Market and love it (see similar one here). The fabric is very durable and I can easily wipe away a snack or a spill 🙂
Some of the things I have are sold out, so I linked similar items below.
What is your favorite use of storage in your playrooms?
