Storage solutions for a clutter-free playroom

Kid's at play also means kids making messes. Some how the kid's cleaning up part is always the challenge. Parents have to do their best to set-up the playroom with enough storage space for every toy and game, to combat the clutter monster. Taking inventory of all playroom items is the first step. Then youíll need to select storage pieces to fit everything. Also, don't forget to measure your space and decide if you want items to be completely hidden in drawers or cabinets or if you'd rather have toys on open shelves, in bins or baskets. Either way, organization is the key. You might even consider labeling shelves, bins and baskets with types of toys or games. If your youngster can't read you can even take pictures of the toys and tape the picture on the drawer, shelf or bin.

Designated storage spots are the way to go. If there's a place for everything then everything can be put back in its place. Below weíve compiled a list of storage units that are perfect for every playroom.
