40+ Clever Playroom Organization Ideas For Boys


Today I wanted to take some time to talk about playroom organization ideas for boys specifically. I have a pretty popular post on playroom storage ideas, but I always feel like it’s easier to find decor ideas that are geared towards girls or very neutral.

So I thought I would share some of the awesome research I’ve been doing on getting some ideas for the boys!! I recently redesigned my kid’s playroom, you can find it here, but its very neutral because I have a boy and a girl. So below you will find the best boy room ideas πŸ™‚

Whatever the size of your space; today I’ve collected all kinds of awesome ideas for how to tackle kid toy clutter and get your home’s play space organized and tidy once and for all! Also stroll on over to check out my kid’s homework station post as well.


I personally love to see my toddlers being creative and imaginative.  I love to see them with books, experimenting, playing , or just running around. So hopefully the list below will inspire all of that!

If you are looking for even more kid’s playroom ideas, then check out my Pinterest board on Playrooms! (also follow me on Instagram) For bedroom ideas, be sure to read my post on kids bedroom storage.


Playroom Design Tips

Before we get started, remember to keep these tips in mind. You will see examples of these tips in storage ideas below!

1.Designate areas for siblings. Kids love have personalized areas. Make it fun!

2. Use bright colors.

3. Use chalk board paint. Whoever came up with this deserves an award. Chalk wall? Yup!

4. Wall decals. These can add so much to a room with little effort.

5. Use cleanable and wipe-able materials. Paint, tables, floors, whatever. The easier to clean, the better. So much less stressful than expecting my kids be be clean all day.

6. Label your storage. This will change your life lol

7. Use a larger table for crafts. There are so many little small tables out there for crafts but my kids can use up an entire dining room table easily. Opt for the bigger tables if you can spare the room.

8. Integrate Furniture with Storage. Tucking toys inside the ottoman where they can’t be seen literally keeps me sane.

9. Try make-believe corners. I corner for a play house, grocery store, or princess dressing room means entertainment on an ongoing basis. Check out some examples below!

10. Incorporate Fort/Tents. There is not a kid on earth who wouldn’t love this. find a way or a corner to include it!

11. Include a Reading area. A nook for chill time is essential! Make it super inviting for your little one!

    Wow, you put together a cool selection, I discovered so many new things for myself, for some reason I especially remember the carpet with a map of the USA, it seems to me that this is very cool for a child! And in general, as a father, I would like to do something from this list with my own hands, I hope that something will come out to do. And it seems to me that every child would be happy with such novelties in his room, thank you very much for that! Very useful, now it remains to decide what exactly my child needs and what he will like))

  • Alice

    These are very valuable ideas, thank you for sharing! I like it when the cabinet is supplemented with glass doors. It looks amazing, but most likely for your bedroom, not the nursery πŸ™‚
