There is so much of our house that I haven’t shared here. Today I’m going to share our playroom because if you remember, we are getting ready to move a lot of the playroom down to the basement. I should be able to share the basement next week, but for now, here is our current playroom. I do love this room. We just have too many big toys that won’t work in here at this point, so we would like to keep some toys up here but move a lot of them to the basement which will be dedicated completely to kids!
I love so much about this room. I love the windows, the fireplace (its a double sided fire place), and I love that we have two living spaces right next to each other.
Now HERE is why we want to move most of the kids stuff to the basement:
I love that we were able to make this room cute even though it was full of toys. Here are some of our favorite accessories for hiding toys (when we actually put them away 🙂 ):
- Land of Nod storage baskets: Our stacking chevron baskets are no longer available, but they have tons of great options. These baskets are much higher quality than what you would find at Target. We have several of their baskets and also some from Target, and the Land of Nod baskets have held up MUCH better.
- The chevron storage ottoman: We bought this on Joss and Main several years ago. Here is a link to something similar and for a great deal on overstock.
Do you have any tricks for keeping toys in check? We will definitely be editing toys as we move them to the basement. Somehow we end up with a bunch of little things that don’t seem to have a home. Every couple of months I like to go through the toys and donate a few things and throw away random things that don’t seem to belong anywhere. I’d love to see other people’s playrooms and hear your tricks for keeping things in order.
Future plans for this room:
- hardwood floors
- new tile around fire place
- trim out windows
- possible moldings above fireplace
