Storage Bins & Bags: If you are in need of toy storage but not looking for a large piece of furniture such as a toy box or bookshelf, storage bins are also an option. While they usually don’t provide as much room for toys, they are very functional. Often storage bins or bags sit on top of a dresser or night stand and can be a place for the toys your kids use the most. The bins are an excellent place to put their favorite toys in the rare event they aren’t using them. Wayfair carries top brands like 3 Sprouts and Winsome to help you find the storage bins you need in your kid’s room.

See the Room From Their Point of View Adult-sized furniture doesn’t always work well for folks who are smaller in stature. Instead, use furniture specifically created for kids to ensure they can get to all their stuff and will be comfortable and safe too.

Curtains are easier to open and create a fun opportunity to introduce more color or pattern into the space.

From cubbies to cabinets, this is a great spot to pack in a lot of storage while keeping favorite books and stuffed friends within arm’s reach at bedtime. Design by Dan Vickery Clip It Up Instead of displaying photos, “A+” homework assignments or your child’s latest masterpiece in frames, use clipboards to show off accomplishments. Clipboards keep things looking spiffy and it’s a breeze to swap out papers. Image courtesy of Ashley Corbett Campbell Organize From the Ground Up The toys and belongings that are used most often are best stored in lower drawers or on lower shelves while breakable keepsakes and seldom-used items can be stored higher up. That way, a favorite teddy bear or book is easily accessible while fragile stuff is neatly displayed up and off the floor.

Use picture labels for younger children who can’t read yet and a mix of pictures and words for early readers. Photos or drawings of shoes, shorts, blocks and bears are a fun way to remind your child where things go. Design by Sarah Boyd It’s Curtains for Clutter If keeping bookcases and shelves organized is just too much of a challenge, simply conceal them with fabric that coordinates with your child’s bedding. Tension rods and premade drapery panels will make short work of hiding the mess when company calls.

This will help teach your child to store like items together while creating a tidy, creative space where items are easily identifiable. Image courtesy of Lindsey Cheney

Having useful toy storage in place is helpful for growing toddlers and equally as helpful for pre-teens and teens that begin purchasing other toys. For toddler girls, you might be tired of stepping on dolls or stuffed animals, while boys might leave little Legos, trucks, and trains on the floor for you to step on. When you have the right storage for toys, you can begin teaching and educating your child on the importance of putting them away. As your children grow older, it might be puzzle pieces and board games that need to be stored somewhere when not in use. You have a lot of options from toy boxes to organizers in addition to bins. Regardless of your preference, Wayfair definitely has you covered! Let’s look at some of the different types of toy storage for your kids’ bedroom, the living room, or the basement.

Sometimes smart storage is small storage. That was certainly the case in this shared bedroom, decorated by L.A.-based interior designer Sarah Barnard for two young sisters. Large wall units would have crowded the space and overpowered the sweetly subtle design Barnard created for the girls, so instead she added “islands” of storage. Her favorite: the green tea table in the corner. Barnard knew the shape, open shelving and rotating base were perfect for this space, but the piece only came in a stiff mahogany finish. She ordered it anyway, and customized it using an eco-friendly, low-VOC paint from Dunn Edwards. The tiny table went from blah to blissful, and works beautifully not just for tea time, but for anytime.
