Kids have a lot of toys: it’s a fact. Regardless of your intentions before your children are born, toys just seem to accumulate. From 1st birthdays and parties to shopping trips and some very generous friends and family, you’ll ultimately end up with a house full of toys. Somehow they’ll spread all over your house. And if you’re short on space, it’s unlikely they’ll be room for a playroom. It’s time to invest in some storage solutions to keep your place clutter-free and kid-friendly.
Keep your living room as a place for relaxing and less like a playroom with some of these brilliant pieces from Great Little Trading Co.
