No matter what I do, all our toys seem to end up in the living room, so I’ve been on a mission to find toy storage ideas for the living room that actually work for my family. If you’re working with a small space, toy storage and organization can be a bigger challenge.
If you don’t have a playroom or you have minimal space in your child’s bedroom, finding toy organization ideas for the living room may be your only option.
However, I’ve found a number of ways to make my living room kid-friendly by both creating a toy corner and finding hidden toy solutions in the living room. Creating a toy rotation system has been a game changer in my house. It’s the perfect idea for a living room, because you can use decorative baskets in them to sort, store and hide toys.
This is such a great idea if you are trying to store toys in a small living room too. Multifunctional furniture is the key to making any small space work!
In a perfect world, we would have clean ups where every single item goes back to where it belongs – but just isn’t a reality in my home.
We do clean out the baskets and put the toys back where they belong a couple times a week. We use this storage hack under beds and cribs, but if your living room furniture allows, try using shallow baskets to store toys! If you’re short on room, a great hack is to utilize vertical space.
Tall bookcases and armoires are great pieces to invest in for extra storage. You can also hang baskets on decorative hooks to store toys like the blogger from This Lil House did!
