4 Creative Ways to Store Toys

4 Creative Ways to Store Toys
  • Opening Intro -

    You might have an idea of how you want your house to look, but kids are rarely interested in preserving your decor.

    Children view space less as a decoration theme and more as a playground.


Since you know the kids will play with their toys, finding a toy storage solution is a necessity for your household. Here are several tips to help store the toys creatively.

Under the Bed

While movies might make jokes about kids’ rooms where all of their possessions are found under their beds, the fact is that a well-organized underbed storage solution is a wonderful way to use space efficiently. A drawer under the bed gives an extra piece of furniture to load up, but even if you can’t afford that, there are other ways to use the space. Consider getting a set of long Tupperware containers and sliding them under the bed. For extra fun, let your kids decorate them how they want, building in visual cues about which toys go where in the process.


Walls often get overlooked. If you are seeking to make the most of your living area, however, it is a good idea to think about how you can make use of those surfaces. There are many kinds of projects you can use hooks for around your place, as long as you are ready to put the work in, including hanging toys where they will be in full sight of your kids’ visitors. Look over your hook shopping options to find the ideal hardware to customize your house.

Toy Shelves

Another way to highlight the more decorative side of toys is to set up a shelf with carefully arranged items. This lets your children have easy access to their favorite playthings, while also presenting an organized and decorative space. It is hard to get your child to keep the toys in their proper place; as such, you might think about stenciling guides to what goes where on the display. You can also include your children in the process by asking which of their possessions they use the most, making sure that the commonly used toys are in easy reach.

Cubbies and Curtains

One relatively low-cost storage solution is to use cubbies, where your children can pile their toys. You can put them on nearly any type of shelf, but some, like lower-cost metal shelves might not look great to visitors. Covering these furnishings with a set of curtains transforms them from an eyesore into an integrated part of the decorating scheme, especially if you can find a fabric that matches the rest of the decor. Be sure the cubbies are on a level where your children can easily access them, or your kids will need to constantly call you in to get their favorites.

Getting your kids to keep their toys picked up is a constant struggle. However, having a room with adequate, creative storage is a good first step to improving things. Look at your space and resources and find what works the best for you.
