6 Easy Ways To Organize Your Playroom

If you’re like most parents to young children, then you might think that organizing a playroom might be a little pointless. Especially if they use it nearly everyday, then what’s the point of cleaning it up when they are just going to mess it up again? Though yes, family rooms and playrooms might get the bulk of the mess in your home, improving the organization of these spaces can help you cut down on the clutter and help you streamline your cleanup efforts. If you’re ready to organize your playroom, we’ve got some helpful tips to make it easier. 

We know a thing or two about organization, and when it comes to playrooms, the key is to create an easy to clean up space to encourage kids to keep things picked up as they play. We think that it comes down to strategy, creativity, and fun. Here are some of our tried and true tips to keep your playroom clutter-free and organized for longer.

How To Organize Your Playroom This Summer

Organizing your playroom this summer doesn’t have to be a hard chore. When you properly organize your playroom, you can make cleanup a breeze and create a better space for your kids to play and grow. Read on for our tips on creating a space your kids will actually want to keep clean.

Clean Out The Old and The Broken Toys

The first thing you should do when it’s time to organize your family room is to get rid of all the clutter. Any trash, broker toys, puzzles with missing pieces, and anything cheap that you KNOW the kids don’t play with – toss in the trash bin. If your playroom is like most, your kids will never miss those broken toys and tiny pieces that they never play with anyways. Here’s a pro tip: throw it all away when your kid isn’t around. They might make a fuss if they see it going into the trash, but you know what they say – out of sight, out of mind.

Also, don’t forget to periodically purge. It helps to set a time frame to occasionally sort through your toys and either keep, toss, or donate. Definitely toss out the broken and worn out toys, and donate the toys they’ve outgrown or never played with. If you make this a habit, you can keep the toy and craft collection down to a manageable size. 

The 10 Best Kitchen Storage Solutions We Could Find

Use Clear Bins

A tip we learned a long time ago is to use see-through containers when picking storage ideas for playroom organization. If your kid is always on the hunt for a specific toy, a clear container can help them locate it without having to dump them out (the source of most playroom messes). Need another pro tip? Ditch the lids. Your kids won’t like them and they’ll just end up in the pile of clutter. Lidless and transparent containers will make for a much faster and simpler clean up at the end of the day.

Install Kid Friendly Shelving or Built Ins

When you work with Dayton Designer Closets, we can help you install beautiful custom builts in that provide the perfect storage solutions for your children’s play area. You want it to be child friendly and accessible so that they can help when it’s time to clean up. 

Cubbies are great for easy organization, and having cabinet doors can help hide the clutter when you want to hang out in the playroom without the mess. Especially if your family is doubling as a play area, you want shelving and built-ins that make clean-up time easy. 

Set Up Zones

If you need help with ways to organize your playroom, then you should definitely set up “zones” for all the different categories of toys your children possess. Stuffed animal zones, toy cars and mechanical items, and more, create a space for each of your children’s toys so that it’s easy to find when it’s time to play. Plus, when each toy has a “home,” your children will have an easier time remembering where things go.

Have A Plan For Smaller Pieces

Especially as your children get older, you need a designated system for legos and other toys with smaller and easily misplaced parts. Maybe that means just one large container for storing legos and building blocks, or maybe it means several containers if your children like to organize by color or size. 

Either way you slice it, having a designated organizational system of containers will make it easier for your children to find and also easier to clean up.
