One that fits perfectly with your interior! You can find stylish cupboards for toys, with good storage compartments in all shapes and sizes. Try to think a little 'outside the box'!

A trendy closet on the outside, stuffed with toys inside; But then nice and out of sight!

I like open bins for easy tidying, which can be detached to take it to the toy rather than 10x up and down with toys to the closet. That's why I have this colorful Kidkraft cabinet at the top (trust me, you'll thank me for those loose bins).

You will get some nice ideas in this article and you will see that a toy cabinet does not have to be boring or unattractive, on the contrary!

Enough exciting and classy storage cupboards for your home!

How can you properly organize a toy cabinet?

Bring order to the toy chaos by grouping items. Do not put everything next to each other, but sort the same kind of items in small groups.

Books with books, stuffed animals with stuffed animals, and so on. If you have a lot of small accessories, collect them in one basket. The use of color plays a role in an open cupboard.

Preferably sort all the items you want to show by color. Let the colors come back in different shades for a 'ton sur ton' effect. Make sure you create a 'calm' color palette.

Alternate different heights. Stacking is also a great solution to create a difference in height. You don't necessarily have to use every plank.

By leaving a compartment or part of a shelf empty, you keep the cabinet organized.

Why clean up?

Your children will certainly appreciate it if their bedroom or playroom is tidy! It gives them the peace of mind to be able to play there.

In a messy room they cannot easily find their toys and it is not pleasant to play.

Many parents say that by tidying up, their kids rediscover what toys they really like and how many they actually have.

Sometimes toys are no longer suitable for them and another child can probably still enjoy them a lot; Explain this to your child.

It is therefore very important to show your kids how 'nice' tidying up is and how they should tackle tidying up.

What do you have in your toy closet? Fun board games to play with the family?

How do you teach your child to tidy up?

Pick an appropriate time to start. Take your time and make sure your little one isn't too tired. So preferably not at the end of a busy day or just before going to bed.

A good time is possibly at the weekend. Tell your child why you are going to clean up together: If your child knows the reason, he or she will be more motivated to get started.

Offer a reward: Have a drink with a treat, play a game together or read a book.

Give you small clear and not too long tasks:

'We're going to clean up your toys together. Do you want to put all the cars in that basket? Then I'll put all your stuffed animals in the other basket '.

Compliment your child while cleaning up; "You can say that well, done very nicely!" And enjoy the result together: 'Now you can play nicely in your tidy room again!'

A tip: It is best to ensure that dangerous toys are placed as high as possible and non-dangerous toys as low as possible.

Here's child and family with a video about tidying up together:

How do you make a closet child safe?

Which child doesn't want to open a drawer or door to see what's behind or to get toys? Children like to explore and that often happens when you are not there.

Doors can close unexpectedly and your child's fingers can be caught in between. Even more dangerous is that they can get to things that they can put in their mouths, for example.

Do not take any chances and place dangerous toys as high as possible in the cupboard, or use a child lock on the cupboard doors and drawers.

By placing these locks, your child must first perform an extra action before he or she can open the cupboard or drawer.

However, the lock can be opened in such a way for adults. You can also protect the corners of the cabinet; before you know it, your child runs into it without looking.

Fortunately, there is also a simple solution for this, namely corner protectors.

Conclusion

Hopefully we have cleared your doubts and answered your questions about purchasing a toy cabinet for your kids!

You have seen that, with a little imagination, you can use most cabinets with shelves for storing and arranging your darling's toys.

There are a lot of cool, multifunctional cabinets for sale in many different styles. So there is always one in your style. Industrial cabinets and country cabinets in particular remain popular.

The industrial cabinets are often in black or pallet wood and the country cabinets mainly in white wood or softer colors. The soft gray color also works well.

Make it easy for yourself by not only focusing on 'real' children's toy cabinets! Broaden your view; You will undoubtedly make a good choice!
