Lately I (we) feel like toys are everywhere! We don’t have a designated playroom, although I wish we did so the toys are in our family room. What I do enjoy about this is that the kids are in our sight. The downside? When company comes over they also hang out in the family room which means the adults, kids, toys, noise and MESS are all in the same spot. My husband thought of relocating the toys to the living room. At first it was a big fat no to me because our living room is located right at the entrance of our house, and I didn’t want it to look like a kid zone and a toy mess! After thinking about it, I thought that if we put the toys in two Expedit shelves from Ikea behind a wall that isn’t noticeable when you walk in – it would be ok because at first glance the room would still look “grown up”, it wouldn’t be until they walked into the living room that they’d see the Expedit shelving.
Here is how the toy situation is now for us
