The children’s room is the most creative corner of your home in the USA, its interior being the most difficult to design. Free up some space in your kid’s dwelling with the help of a bunch of easy to arrange storage ideas for items that are the most abundant in the room: toys, book, and clothes.
Unusual Toys Storage Ideas.
Toys often seem to jam-pack the children’s room over the waterline. If you feel that the hush of toys is going to cover you up to the hilt, try applying one of the following ways to tidy up the space.
- Containers and boxes stuffed with fluffy toys often appear too clumsy and unrepresentable. Try storing the cuddle items in an on wall multi-level swing set. You can hang the structure on the door, on a cabinet wall, or suspend it from the ceiling.
- A hammock for toys is truly an unusual, interesting and out of the box idea. Adjust its height so that the child can reach the toys and put them back comfortably.
- A parking hive is an idea for storing your child’s impressive collection of toy cars. It’s a multi-level structure of cardboard tubes glued together in the manner of bee’s cells. The idea works for girls as well, because the hive suits perfectly for storing hairpins and doll’s accessories.
- A magnetic stripe is another variant for keeping metal toy cars in order. Just attach several stripes to the wall and place the cars on them.
- A dozen of plastic baskets forms an unusual and quite capacious multi-level container for toys. Put them on the side against the wall, and brace them together in the shape of a pyramid. Hint: try also using the structure as a target while playing ball games with the child.
