We have a toddler who follows us around everywhere, and so has toys strewn all over the house. Do you have any tips on how to tastefully handle this situation without confining every single plaything to his bedroom?
The expert answers:
Find an attractive yet practical storage system. As a mom, this is exactly why I designed our Charles and Audrey storage systems! Such pieces are intended for toy storage but disguised as furniture you happily welcome into a living room, family room or playroom.
Your home should be a family environment, and keeping toys nicely hidden in a room you all use allows for fantastic interaction, keeping your children involved in your day-to-day home routine. Having storage he can call his own will make him proud to show off his toys to family and guests and gives him a sense of accomplishment when it comes time for clean up.
