Playroom Declutter

Lately our playroom has felt a bit cluttered. In the past when it felt cluttered I added more storage. But I realized that hasn’t helped much.

Here are the photos:

This photo is take from the entry way into the playroom.




I have switched the couches around to give more room for play. I cleared out underneath the train table     

This  photo is from another door. You can see our storage bins straight ahead. My goal was to go from 3 storage units to 1. (plan changed later).






I cleared all the clutter from the top of the shelves,

Here is the art corner before:




I moved the plastic storage to my upstairs supply closet. I moved all the art supplies into a red bin on the first shelf, so that visually it is much less cluttered.

Here is our train table, which also has storage underneath.


You can’t tell from this picture, but I combined some storage bins in order clear out underneath the table. Here you can really see the change in the corner of the room though.


What I really wanted to accomplish was to make the room feel less cluttered. I wanted less visual clutter. I also wanted more space to play. The room was just feeling so dark and over crowded.

I am really happy with the result. Monkey even said “Wow Mommy, I am so proud of you!”
