When you have kids, it’s normal to see a lot of toys strewn all over the floor. But it shouldn’t be like this when they’re done playing. Here are some easy storage solutions that can help you and your kids combat the mess and stress: 

1. Keep your kids’ toys in stackable, plastic containers.

This way, it’s easy for them to see the toys they want to play with. Stacking your storage boxes also helps save on floor space. 

2. Keep the toys that your kids play with often in open storage chests.

This way, it will be easy for them to get and return these toys, which they will probably play with again soon. 

3. Go for bespoke storage solutions.

In this little girl’s bedroom, the stairs leading to the loft-type bed are made up of shelves that house her toys. A chest in the middle of the room also serves as additional storage. 

4. Provide pretty shelves for your kids’ toys and belongings. 

Open shelves can also make it easier for your kids to get and store the toys they often play with. Just make sure the shelves aren’t full of a lot of toys to avoid clutter. Shelves with attractive designs might also motivate them to put back their toys after use. 

5. Have a customized bed with secret storage.

A bespoke bed with storage underneath can work well even in a small room. Have a sliding cabinet door to protect your child’s toys and shoes stored underneath from dust.
