Storage Ideas for Kids' Toys

Reduce the clutter in your child's room or the playroom with these smart storage ideas for kids' clothes, toys, and more.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Window Seating

      Create the look of a built-in window seat without the expense. This freestanding bench nestles perfectly beneath a window, offering comfy seating that doubles as storage. Three cubbies below the seat cushion are easy for kids to access and provide plenty of space to store games, books, and plush toys.

    • Make Use of Niches & Nooks

      Take advantage of every inch of available space in your child’s room by outfitting odd bump-outs and corners with built-in shelving systems. The lower shelves of this niche offer storage space for books and small toys, while the upper shelves display collectibles and decor.

    • Window Nook

      Window nooks are the perfect way to create a spot for reading and dreaming. A thick upholstered cushion and plenty of pillows make it comfy for adults and children alike. Drawers below the window seat provide a spot to stow away games and extra blankets.

    • Corner Cubbies

      A freestanding cubby system outfits a corner of this playroom with plenty of storage and style. Wicker and wire baskets corral items such as toy cars, crayons, and other small playthings. Open cubbies display colorful books, games, and larger plush toys. The top of the unit offers display space for whimsical tree cutouts and collectibles.

    • Desk Unit

      Built-in desks can be expensive, yet the expense might be well worth it considering the heavy use such a unit can withstand as your child grows. Closed drawers provide space to store items that tend to clutter the desktop, such as paper and pencils. A tall bookcase showcases books and stuffed animals now but can be used to display collectibles later on.

    • In the Bin

      Temporary storage solutions, such as these fold-up storage bins, are a colorful solution and provide lightweight storage in a playroom or child's bedroom. Color-code the bins for specific purposes, or label the front of each to make cleanup time a breeze for little hands.

    • Built-in Solutions

      Built-ins offer a grand solution for storage and display in a child’s bedroom. Two tall, narrow bookshelves flanking each side of the bed in this room hold everything from books to collectibles. Baskets on the lower shelves store small items such as dolls and paperback books.

    • A Place for Everything

      This armoire has been repurposed into handy storage for a child. Shelves outfitted with storage bins and canisters house a variety of toys and games, while magnetic doors offer display space for family photos, dry-erase boards, and kids’ artwork.

    • Corral the Clutter

      The inside of doors -- whether on a closet, shelving unit, or armoire -- can be a boon to organization. Hang a calendar, memo board, or corkboard on the back of a door in your child’s room to hold the never-ending array of school assignments, invitations, and artwork.

      Hanging Storage

      As with any other room in the house, it’s important that your child’s bedroom storage solutions offer both function and style. This hanging quilt was outfitted with pockets that provide storage space for plush dolls, art supplies, dress-up beads, and more. Consider repurposing a shoe organizer for over-the-door -- and off-the-floor -- organization.

      Schooled in Style

      Bold and imaginative, this sturdy metal locker unit gives a semiindustrial feel in a boy's bedroom or playroom. The locker fronts include numbered labels to make identifying the contents of each bin a snap for little ones. The bins offer stow-away space for everything from art supplies to toy cars to books.

      Under the Bed

      Storage space can be found high and low in a child’s room. This custom-made bed boasts handy underbed drawers, which are a terrific spot to stash specialty items such as out-of-season clothing or bulky sports equipment. Shelving units built in to each side of the bed house storage bins that help corral smaller items, such as school supplies and books.

      Toy Trunk

      Organize a toy chest by specifying it for a certain type of storage. This bin provides a designated place for dress-up clothes. Other uses include stuffed animal storage, linens and bedding, and floor pillows. As a child grows, shift the usage to holding photo albums, school papers, and cherished mementos.

      Mobile Storage

      Corralling small items such as toy cars and block sets is an important step in keeping your child's room or playroom neat and clutter-free. This handy bin organizer offers space for up to 12 plastic storage bins that can be easily carried around the room when it's time to play and quickly replaced when it's time to clean up.
