Creative Storage Solutions for the Playroom

by Lauren Busser The House Designers’ Editorial Director

Does your new home have a space that you want to turn into the perfect playroom for your child? Keep these design considerations in mind as you select the perfect furnishings for your child's playroom. When designed with these concepts in mind, you can easily turn a playroom into a space that your son or daughter will love for years to come.

The Land of Nod Adjustable Hi-Fi Play Table

For a play table that will grow with your child, check out the Adjustable Hi-Fi Play Table from The Land of Nod®. This play table can be easily adjusted as your child grows up with the purchase of additional 7" leg sets.

Choose Appropriately Sized Furniture

Trying to teach your child organizational skills can be difficult when their favorite toys and games are out of reach. If they can't reach the drawer they are likely to pull the entire drawer out and leave its contents on the floor. Keeping drawers, shelves, and other items at eye-level will make it easy for your child to find their favorite toys and put them away.

The Land of Nod, Storagepalooza

Storagepalooza is a popular storage option from The Land of Nod® and comes in a variety of rich colors. Inspired by vegetable bins, it provides a practical solution for toys, books, and games. With The Land of Nods® 18-year warranty you can be sure that Storagepalooza is sure to outlast everything your kids throw at them.

A Place for Everything

Keeping toys in a sloping box or using different storage bins will help keep your child organized and make cleaning easier. Freestanding open bins are a great way to get your child to clean up after themselves. You can color code and label the bins for specific items to make it easier to put them away.

Pottery Barn Kids bookcase

The Cameron Creativity Storage System with Art Cubbies and Chalk Cabinets by Pottery Barn® Kids is perfect for the budding artist in your family. With a vast array of components, this well-made collection will last your little one for years to come and keep all of their toys and art supplies organized.

Keep Favorite Toys In Reach

When it comes to creating the perfect storage space for your kids, you want to make sure that you use every inch of available space. Be sure to keep favorite items in reach. If you use shelving, remember to place books and toys on lower shelves and memorabilia and collectibles up high and out of reach.

The Container Store elfa White Kids Workstation

The White elfa Kid’s Workstation by The Container Store®is the perfect place for your child to create and play. Solid shelves provide ample storage space for craft supplies, toys, books and games while a spacious desk area sets the stage for artistic creation. The elfa Mesh Drawers prevent small items from falling through. What makes this system great is its flexibility. What was once a craft area for a preschooler can grow into a study area for a teenager.

Select Furnishings That Grow With Your Child

Just like you can purchase an adjustable bedroom set, you can also purchase an adjustable desk or workstation. These systems can be easily modified or removed as your child grows up.
