A toy chest is a great area for your baby’s toys and can give the baby their own special area. Toy chests come in many colours and material such as wood and plastic so you can find an option that fits your décor.
For a more up-scale version of a toy chest, choose a large decorative chest or trunk. This will allow your space to still feel ‘grown up’ but also offer you a place to hide toys your little one regularly plays with.
An entertainment centre is the area in which you house your television and electronic components. You can also use the entertainment centre to store your children’s toys. Use the storage cubbies of a unit or add baskets to the top to hide toys or unwanted clutter.
Another great option is to create a baby area. Choose a personal photo of your baby from the Light Republic Baby Gallery and create a gallery so your baby knows it is their area. Then keep the toys only in this space. Do not allow your baby to move the toys to other areas of the living room. You can include baskets to keep the toys off the floor.
It is best to create a clean-up method that will allow you to quickly arrange the living area for comfort. By having extra laundry baskets or storage containers, you will be able to quickly remove the toys from the area, making it easy to enjoy time with your guests.
If you have enough space in your living room, you can create bench seating. With an empty corner, you can add an L-shaped storage bench, which you can use to hide toys and unwanted items. This is a great way to add extra seating in the space that looks great and is useful.
