01 | CENTRALLY LOCATED
Place a table right in the middle of the room so the toy pile doesn’t end up in the middle of the floor every day. It will make clean up easier if toys and projects are on top of some surfaces versus always on the floor.
02 | ONE PROJECT AT A TIME
Help keep kids focused on one project at a time by creating a corner work station. Keep it light, simple, and add pops of personalization to make them really feel this is their space.
03 | THE RIGHT STORAGE
Whether you have a full playroom or not, you can still carve out space for kids to be able to manage their toys better. Cube style storage is a great solution to help round up toys and books and keep things organized.
04| FARMHOUSE INSPIRED
Metal shelving for books, wire baskets for toys, and wicker bins for storage. The more available storage containers you have available the easier it will be during clean up time.
05 | BRIGHT AND CLEAN
Bright white furniture helps keep this playroom feeling clean 24/7. Add a pop of color to add some fun to this neutral space!
06 | PICTURED LABELS
One large storage unit can transform the room from toys everywhere to one major command center. With all toys located in one place clean up will always be a breeze.
07 | KIDS LIBRARY
A simple cube cabinet lined with woven jute baskets makes hiding toy clutter easy while maintaining a clean and organized look.

08 | PLAYROOM SHELVES
Organize toys neatly on shelves and choose a few vintage toys to display on their own.
09 | TEXTURES & PRINTS
If the idea is to eliminate having so many toys then jazz up their playroom with a bunch of textures, patterns, and prints to bring life to a more minimalist playroom.
10 | THE PERFECT READING NOOK
Every minimalist playroom needs that perfect little reading nook. Easily beat book clutter by installing shallow shelving at kid-friendly heights.
11 | WILD WALLS
Minimalist playrooms do not always have to have white walls. Keep everything in the room simple and create unique walls to keep the room from feeling stale.
12 | ONE TONE
Pick your kids’ favorite color and create a mix and match of that color to help create subtle uniformity to the playroom.
13 | PICK A THEME
Pick a theme that will spark some life into a minimalist playroom. Wooden crates help keep this theme of the mountains relevant while providing much-needed storage.
14 | UNDER THE SEA
Make a smaller space fun by keeping everything neutral but add colorful touches, like artwork or a rug. The trick to keeping the smaller playroom organized is to limit how much stuff you actually keep in it. If something does not have its own place then create one or think about donating some toys.
