When you have children you may be familiar with the fact that toys make their way all over your home. Even when you child learns to keep their toys in their room, it can be difficult to have easy and neat storage options.

As a parent, it can sometimes be a difficult task to find a proper place for all those toys. But it’s not just about putting them away; you also want to have your child’s toys organized in such as way that they can find what they need and easily put them away.

The first thing you need to think about when it comes to toy storage ideas is organization. The more organized you are, the better your entire plan will go. Put some time into organizing the toys and the room they will go into. This is also a great time to get rid of any old toys, broken toys or items they just don’t play with anymore.

Next, you need storage bins of some type. There are many types of toy boxes and toy storage chests available on the market but another inexpensive option is plastic bins. You can find plastic bins with tops in a wide variety of colors and sizes.

Whatever you use, it is a good idea to label it so that you know what is what. This also makes it easier for children to put away their own toys and keep things organized the way you have taken the time to place them.

Place items that are used on a regular basis someplace where they are easily obtained. Other items, such as keepsakes and heirlooms can be put up on display instead. Try placing them on shelves or hanging them on the wall.

These simple and easy to follow tips will help you make more room in your child’s room and can help get them organized and keep it that way.

Have you ever thought about what your home décor says about you? Some of us put more thought and effort into our home décor than others but even those who strive to have a great home may not put much thought into what it really says about them.

There are so many different home décor styles- neither better nor more impressive than the other. The home décor style you like really comes down to your personality and what styles you like and feel comfortable in. You shouldn’t decorate your home the way you think someone else wants it to be, but instead in a way that makes you feel good. After all, you will be the one spending the most time there.

There are as many different styles out there as there are people and this is what makes each home décor style so unique. From Western, Asian, contemporary, elegant and more- there are styles for everyone. Which style you choose isn’t the most important thing.

What’s important is that you choose something that suits you and that expresses who you really are. When people come into your home, they should feel that they are in your personal space. Your home should reflect who you are and may also reflect other people who live in your home as well.

For example, if you are a single female, you may decorate your home in a more feminine style than you would if there were others living in your home. Shabby chic is a good theme to go with in this case. Asian themes can be good for most anyway, country is good for a real “homey” feel and some people prefer a modern décor.

Whatever you choose for your home make sure it’s something that you like and feel comfortable with and also consider what it will say about you to people who visit your home. Make sure your home décor is saying what you want it to.
