Organize a Playroom on a Budget

Updated: Jan 27

I love this playroom organizing project for so many reasons, but mainly because the space will stand the test of time and will easily evolve from a 7-year-old playroom to a teen hangout. The goals for this organizing project were to clear the clutter, give everything a home and allow for learning, exploration, and creativity. And also not break the bank.

We created three functional zones for creative play, homework, toy organization, and hanging out with friends. The organizing solutions and systems we put together are simple for maintaining and ensuring the clutter does not take over.

  • Art & homework zone

  • Reading zone

  • Toy & build zone

Since we needed the playroom to evolve over time, we chose to use all white furniture and incorporate more colorful accent pieces for the decorative accents and art pieces. This way, instead of replacing bigger ticket pieces, the client can add changes using less expensive items.
