Your Child’s playroom may get a life of its own. Here are some Tips for Organizing your Playroom and helping keep it looking nice.
Tips For Organizing Your Playroom
If you own a playroom you will know the never-ending task that is keeping it tidy and organized. Keeping the playroom clean can feel like the most thankless task. That said, there are some simple hacks for putting it back together again in almost as little time as it got pulled apart. Follow these simple steps to help keep your playroom orderly and organized – even after a busy playdate.
Choose easy access storage
If you want to encourage your children to put their toys away after they’ve been used, or rather once you have nagged them, then ensure the storage options you choose are easy to use and easy to access for their ages. Storage bins can be a great option for younger children as they can easily reach their toys when they want them and better yet, easily dump all of their toys in them when they’re finished. If you have older children consider multi-shelved or drawer units. A chest of drawers or storage units with multiple drawers or shelves (hidden behind doors) are great for housing and organizing, everything that would otherwise be left on the floor, cluttering up surfaces, or dumped in boxes.

Label your storage
Putting lego away with the dolls or crayons and pens in with the console controllers will just cause chaos. Nobody will be able to find anything and your children could even be put off of playing in their playroom altogether. To help keep it organized and user-friendly label storage bins, boxes, drawers, and units with the items that are to be kept inside. This will make putting things away a much quicker and simpler task. Remember to keep things child-friendly, if you have children who cannot yet read then get inventive with your labeling and use pictures instead of words.
Use your surfaces
While you may want to keep the rest of the surfaces in your house clutter-free the playroom is the one room where you have free reign to fill the surfaces. Use every space available. Perhaps your children have lego structures they are proud of, made a paper mache pot at school, or have artwork they want to hang on the walls. Then the playroom is the place for it. Fill the walls and surfaces with trinkets and homemade goodies and display them in their space with pride.
One of the best ways to keep on top of a playroom is to declutter it regularly. Children’s toys are constantly being replaced at birthdays and Christmases and these new items all need a place to live. If something isn’t being played with or used anymore then get rid of it, donate it, or if you can sell it. You want to keep your storage available for the things you actually need to store.
