basket storage for kids toys

Coming up with ideas to keep your kids’ bedrooms tidy can be a real challenge these days, especially when you consider the sheer number of toys they manage to amass. If you’re searching for a new way to cut the clutter in your kids’ rooms, then search no more. There are literally hundreds of different storage solutions out there to minimise mess and maximise playtime style.

While it’s good to have the occasional clear out of “stuff” from their rooms, it’s important to have a good storage system in place to maintain the things that you do decide to keep. Nowadays there are hundreds of products out there for you to choose from.

A good chest of drawers for storing toys is a great idea. With the latest design innovations there’s something to suit every style of bedroom, from beautifully crafted, traditional wooden items to more modern, colourful pieces. You might decide to incorporate a drawer system into a bed or cot, to make an attractive feature of them. Alternatively you could use woven baskets or lidded boxes if you’re struggling with space under the bed.

In terms of box storage, there are some gorgeous designs around to suit your kids’ every need. Lego have a charming range of giant bricks of varying design that clip and stack together just like their smaller counterparts. The Jack and Jemima painted pine toy chest would be a darling addition to a more traditional bedroom, while Little Ella James have a set of three charming, stackable pirate suitcases for any wannabe Long John Silvers out there.

If you’re having trouble finding somewhere to keep their books and CDs, the Guidecraft Moon and Stars Media Carousel is a really lovely space saver. Made from rubberwood, this is a hard wearing piece available with co-ordinating products available.


For kids who are a little more creative, why not purchase some plain wooden boxes and allow them to add their own personal mark? You could use any number of materials, such as paint, glitter and fabrics, and who knows, if they’ve had a hand in decorating the boxes, maybe they’re more likely to use them when it comes time to tidy up!
