Living Room Toy Storage Ideas
Somehow, every parent’s living room becomes the defacto playroom — even when you have a playroom. During playtime, the toys walk themselves out of the playroom and into your family room (It definitely wasn’t the kids. They tell us so!). You’re probably asking yourself, “How do I keep my toys organized in my living room?” Instead of fighting the tide, find a living room storage solution that works with your home decor. You can have a beautiful home, even with kids.

Keep toys in your media console to hide them from plain sight. Your kids can easily access their toys, but you don’t have to see them all the time.

Storage Solutions for Small Spaces
When you have a small home, just a few things out of place make the whole space feel cluttered. Bulky storage solutions can add to the problem by taking up precious space. These home organization enthusiasts share how to make the most of your small space.
In your small space, you are bound to already have existing storage. Take advantage of what’s already there for storage. Do your kids have a play tent? Hide toys in there! Do you already have an ottoman with built-in storage? Put toys in there. Look around your small space and see what you can use to store toys.
Use the storage built into your small home: closets! Choose one closet as the toy closet. Organize toys using baskets, and storage boxes, or even repurpose a shoe organizer to keep toys grouped correctly.
Toy storage ideas for small spaces can be difficult. Keeping your home clutter-free with toys everywhere seems impossible if you’re living in a condo or a small house. With this Montessori table, toys are all contained within one storage solution.
Use the toy rotation method. Keep toys contained in baskets and storage containers, grouped by activity. Rotate toys every 2-4 weeks, and keep the toys that are off rotation in a storage closet that the kids don’t easily access.
