As everyone with kids knows all to well, they come with a lot of stuff! I do not have the extra square footage to dedicate a space solely for my children to take over. Therefore my children and their accessories have taken over every room in my house. I enjoy the design challenge of incorporating these little people into my home. Children's furniture, toys and storage is a market all in its own and many companies have fashionable solutions to hide and organize everything that is baby and child. Truly look at your organization style and your personality and form a storage solution. If you are a person (and your children are also) that will keep everything organized with bins and labels, and things will all get put back in there place at the and of the day, then by all means go crazy on pinterest and create areas with labeled compartments that separate legos and barbies by size, shape and color. I am not, and just have to lean into the madness. I find the most attractive storage that I can throw everything into at the end of the day. I love storage bins and laundry baskets that fit toys of all sizes and are easy for my one year old and seven year old to take things out, and put them away. Baskets with lids or boxes are great if you have a little one in diapers to keep wipes and diapers on the first floor. Storage furniture pieces with doors are great to store board games and larger toys as well as dvds and video games. Creating stations that keep art and homework supplies all together for easy access encourage kid to have thier own space that they are responsible for in shared living areas. This works for us, we do have kid stuff all over the house, but it can be quickly hidden. We have to constantly rotate toys and we donate things monthly to keep the clutter down.The kids live here too and probably use the house more than my husband and I do. One day I imagine we will be rid of the clutter and finally purchase furniture not based on its ability to hide dirt or wipe clean, but the house will not be nearly as fun. After all, there are only so many years we get to have a teepee in our Living Room.
