Toy Room Organisation Inspiration

This Monday, I shared the toy room makeover for the first winner of the Kia Australia ‘Win The Organised Housewife For A Day’ competition. Keeping toys organised is one of the biggest issues around the house, so I’ve collected a few more ideas to help your space too.

Dress ups hanging storage

Is your dress-ups box overflowing? Add a tension rod between two shelving units to create a small wardrobe space at their height | Chaos In My Casa


You might have a few too many cars to use these for all of them, but using a magnetic knife strip is a fun way to display a few favourites!

Chalk play table

Repaint your train table so that the kids can draw their own landscape and maps to play on | A Pocketful Of Me

Over 40 different Lego storage ideas!

Expedit window seat and toy storage

Use an Expedit to not only add storage but also create a cosy window seat | Apartment Therapy

Komplement toy storage

Ikea’s Komplement hanger is also great for all those small stuffed toys | Return To Home

Corkboard frames for displaying kids art

Decorate the toy room walls with the kids’ own art by painting old frames and putting cork inside | Shannon Makes Stuff

Soap box card storage

Get rid of the torn card game boxes and pop the cards into a travel soap box | Shady Tree Diary

Children's books storage

Using little shelves like these for books is nothing new, but for renters, adding them to the side of a dresser is great wall-damage-free option | On The Banks Of Squaw Creek

Great ideas! I store card games in Sistem storage containers, almost identical to those soap containers! Readily available at woollies and a great range of colours! (I store the cards in see through ones!)

what did you use as the top over the trofast units from IKEA in the costume storage picture?

Hi LL, That particular image isn’t one of my originals. Although IKEA do sell a wide range of desk tops.
