Finding the space to store all our children’s toys can be a challenge. They seem to multiply every single day and every item takes up space in our homes. There’s only so much room under beds, on top of wardrobes, in cupboards and many of these spaces can be awkward to store regularly used toys.
We can’t count on our kids to tidy away their own toys, but what if there was a way we could get them excited about putting their toys away at night? And what if there was a way we could have efficient and easy to use storage that fits perfectly in our home?
Self-storage experts, Storebox, may just have the answer. They have scoured the internet to find the most unique and easy to create toy storage solutions. To help you find storage that perfectly suits your needs, they have put together the infographic below, to show you what your toy storage is capable of.
To find the perfect storage solution, it may just be a case of jazzing up the furniture you currently have in your home. You may have a bookshelf filled with books you never read or stacked high with DVD’s that are gathering dust. Why not take these items to a carboot or sell them online in order to make a bit of extra cash, then renovate your bookshelf into handy toy storage?
Bookshelves can be used to store and display toys including action figures, Barbies and stuffed animals. To keep stuffed animals in place, simply attach bungee cords to the front of the shelves? This keeps the toys secure and easy to access when needed.
Recycling old furniture can also be a great way to create your custom storage. Use furniture you’ve been keeping in the garage, furniture that you’ve purchased from charity shops or even garden items like planters, that you never use. Even if something is slightly broken, there is always a way to DIY them and bring them a new lease of life.
Getting creative with space
Have a look around your home and start to plan where you could possibly put your storage. Think about how you can utilise small corners or cubbies and try and think about what type of storage could fit in nicely.
You may find that you don’t have the floor space to put larger pieces of storage and wall storage may be your best option. Once you’ve established how much space you have to play around with, then you can start to get creative with designing your perfect storage.
The infographic below gives you a few ideas of unique and creative toy storage ideas to get you started. These are just a handful of the ways you can create effective storage for your kid’s toys and if you enlist their help in creating it, they may be a little bit more excited to use the storage they have helped craft!
