Before having kids you probably had dreams of keeping your house organized when a little one showed up on the scene... you dream big! You certainly wouldn't be one of those moms with toys EVERYWHERE. But then your friends threw you a baby shower, and your kid had a few birthday parties and all of a sudden your minimalist home is over run with primary colors. Every year more toys seem to show up and you panic a little more (or a lot more if you are anything like us, we own our anxiety!)
We can tell you 10 things to get rid of to help make things not so chaotic but if having a playroom fits into your floor plan then give those kids a room of their own and ban the toys from your chic living room (you didn't really need an office anyway...) Organizing a playroom doesn't have to be hard or require you to buy much more than you already have at home.
We recommend starting with a neutral palette that will grow with your kiddos - they hate purple today but will be begging you to paint the whole room next month. Throw in a few places to sit and LOTS of bins and baskets - they make clean up time so much easier.
Here are a few of our favorite playroom essentials to get you started. We have no doubt your kids will handle adding the toys!
