The Kids’ Playroom Reveal

I’ve shared a few times on social media over the past month or so that I’ve been working on creating a fun playroom for Blake and Four. We finally put the finishing touches on it recently, so I decided to do a kids’ playroom reveal in case you’re looking for inspo for your own home or just want to snag a few of the items we used for playroom organization.

My main goal for this kids’ playroom was, of course to make it fun and safe for the kids. But my momma self also needed a space that was easy to clean up quickly and organize. Basically, everything needed to have a home. Before I updated this room, I felt like there were toys stacked up everywhere and nothing had a designated spot.

The first thing on my list was to find a place to put all of our books. We’re big readers in our home, and between both kids, we’ve accumulated a lot of books over the years. I wanted a way to display them so they’d be top of mind for my kids and easy for me to grab. Plus, I honestly just love the way books look when they’re displayed — almost like art!?

What We Use to Display Books & Toys

Amazon

Acrylic Floating Shelves

This is a great solution if you have a lot of books and want a cool way to display them! You can choose from several different sizes to fit your space too.

These acrylic shelves were an absolutely perfect solution for the space. They come in several different sizes (I did the 36 inch shelves), so you can adapt for the amount of wall you have. These would also be cute for layering photo fames!

Amazon

Hot Wheels Shelving

Okay so technically this isn’t just for Hot Wheels, but it’s worked perfectly for that too! And it’s got 110 spaces, so we’ve got plenty of room to grow our car collection. This is Four’s favorite part of the room!

Those of you who follow me on social media know that Four is absolutely in his car and truck era. We’ve already collected a ton of toy cars, and instead of dumping them all into a basket or plastic bag, I thought it’d be cute to display them on this toy storage case. It’s actually my favorite part of this space, and Four loves that he can easily grab any of his toy cars off the shelf.

My Toy Storage Solutions

Amazon

Toy Storage Bags

I use these storage bags for everything. They’re a great solution for keeping toys organized and easy to grab when the kids want to play with something specific.

When it came to all of the toys, I knew I needed a way to separate them, but also make them easy to grab for the kids. I found these plastic bags on Amazon and voila! The only thing I don’t love is that there isn’t really an easy way to label them, but you could totally write on them with a permanent marker or even use a sticker of some sort.

IKEA

Playroom Shelving

I don’t have much IKEA furniture in my home, but this felt like a great solution for the playroom. It looks nice, but I’m not worried if the kids accidentally ding it!

The shelving unit and toy organizing baskets I found at IKEA. Since I knew the kids would most likely dink up any furniture I put in this room, I needed something affordable that would do the job. For the shelving, I bought two of the units to go side by side.

Our Playroom Furniture & Rugs

Arhaus

Playroom Sectional

When it came to furniture in our playroom, I knew it needed to be durable and basically stain-proof. But I also wanted it to look good so it could be used in other rooms down the road. This sectional has been better than I even imagined!

Furniture was one of the hardest parts of putting this room together. It was important to me that the room feel cozy and livable for us, but I also wanted it to feel nice and like it flowed with the rest of the home. I found the best sectional on Arhaus that have been extremely durable, comfortable, and still give the room a great aesthetic IMO.

Amazon

Table and Chairs

This table is the perfect size for young kids! I’ve definitely sat on these little chairs before too. ;) Love that the table top is paintable and erasable with water based paint!

How cute is this small table and chairs? Both are adjustable, so the setup can grow with the kids. You can paint and erase the table top if you use water based paint, and it’s easy to wipe down!

Amazon

Foam Jigsaw Play Mat

I was on a mission to find a play mat that was easy to clean, comfortable for my kids to play on, and actually looked good in the playroom. This checked all of the boxes!

A play mat was also a must for this room. I really liked the look of this jigsaw mat, which comes in several different color options. You can also choose a smaller size. It’s made from foam, so it’s easy to wipe down, and I love that it’s actually pretty thick.

All of the artwork I used in this room is from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Home. I pretty much love anything they make!

SHOP OUR FAVORITE TOYS FOR THE PLAYROOM

Amazon

Our Playroom Toy Collection

I have all of our toys (or at least as many as possible) linked in my Amazon storefront. Be sure to check out both the boys and girls collection!
