funny standard pillowcases How to create a play space for your kids that's easy to keep tidy sofa pillow covers

The modern playroom is a space for imagining, learning… and making mess. Lots of mess. Create one that inspires, delights and is easy to keep tidy. Here are two we dreamed up

A bookshelf or cube unit is an easy, compact way to store lots of items. Boxes, baskets or mini suitcases are perfect for housing small toys and figurines. Ensure shelves are fixed to the wall for safety.

Baskets and crates are ideal for soft toysfunny standard pillowcases, dress-ups and larger toys; choose ones with lids to keep the contents out of sight. Stackable crates are another good option.

A traditional toybox looks the business and is a great catch-all option. However, it’s not always easy to find what you are looking for without emptying everything out!

Wooden or metal cabinets are great for storing flat objects such as board games and puzzles and are also good for more precious items. Metal lockers are a fantastic option.

Tub storage makes it easy for kids to find what they’re looking for and put the tub back when they’re done. This method is great for messy items such as Play-Doh, felts, crayons and pencils, blocks, plastic animals, small books and so on.

Get creative – patterned gift boxes are cheap and readily available, large jars are super-useful, vintage suitcases make great dress-up boxes… the options are endless.

Instead of a bulky bookshelf, install picture rails at a kid-friendly height to display books facing outwards – this looks beautiful, makes it easier for kids to find the book they’re looking for, and is simply to keep tidy.

A fail-safe approach for any kids’ space is to choose a neutral colour for the walls that allows toys and decorative elements to take centre stage. A beautiful wallpaper on one wall can also be a great way to add an extra element of fun.

A durable carpet is the best option for a playroom as little ones spend so much time on the floor. However, a plastic mat under the arts and crafts table is a must! A large, soft rug will do the trick on wooden floors.
