I think you will agree with me when I say the living room is a part of a house that requires a lot of attention. It can be difficult to keep this space clean and organized, especially with small children. Well it turns out, you can easily keep your living room clean and organized with a few simple additions or adjustments. Toy storage ideas for your living room are the perfect way to keep things tidy and child-friendly at the same time.
Here are some things you should keep in mind before getting started with your toy storage in the living room.
Toy storage in the living room-things to consider
– Sort through the toys first before buying toy storage. This is to avoid buying an unfit and incorrect type of storage. Buying containers you cannot use will only create clutter. I suggest you sort through the toys with your children as they are their belongings. You do not want them having tantrums after you throw out one of their favorite toys. Also, this could be a perfect opportunity to teach your children the habit of sorting their toys.
– Avoid using lids. It is just another reason for your children to not clean-up. Also, it is easier for your kids to look for the toys they want to play with next time. It might just make more clutter if they keep opening lids trying to look for a toy. I assure you they will not make an effort to put that lid back.
Do not use cardboard boxes. Aside from the fact that it does not look pretty, it will be such a cozy place for cockroaches.
Keep in mind that the toys should be hidden but highly accessible.
If you are designing a playroom, it is a general notion to have storage that is bright and appealing to children. However, when designing for toy storage in the living room, this is not always the case. You would not want your living room to look like a kindergarten classroom. Here are some practical toy storage ideas for your living room.
