Kids Rule Interiors

There are great storage ideas here, I think we should remember that the storage needs to be flexible and adaptable as collections and interests wain as your children develop and their interests change. Think outside the box and buy pieces that you love that are not necessarily designed for toy storage.

I joined a toy library rather than buying bulky and soon forgotten items. I bought things that didn't take up much room, i.e. books, jigsaws, listening books, board games, bricks and Lego, and outdoor games. Their bedrooms had desks since they had homework assignments from the age of six. As we live in the French Alps, the playroom at the top of the garage soon became a waxing studio and is where skiing equipment is stored - that was 15 years ago and is what it remains. The takeaway is limit how much stuff you accumulate and remember their interests and needs change rapidly.
