Cabinetry isn’t just for the kitchen... cabinets can solve storage issues throughout the home. As a parent, I find my largest storage struggle is finding convenient places to store and organize my children’s belongings like homework supplies, toys, games, art & craft supplies, etc.

If you too find yourself struggling with where to store your vast supply of kid stuff, I’ve gathered a few ideas.

Think about where your family commonly works on homework or dives into craft projects, is it the living room? Dining room? Kitchen island? Consider a Shallow Roll-Out for keeping these items organized nearby and prevent them from cluttering the rest of your drawers and cabinets.

Another option to consider for extra storage is a Toe-Kick Drawer. A Toe-Kick drawer is a handy storage feature in any room; it’s hidden, yet easy to access and adds additional storage in an under-utilized space.

The same idea can work in the living room to store gaming accessories under the entertainment center.

Consider using cabinetry to create a platform bed for additional storage in a kid’s bedroom. This bed was created using one of Dura Supreme's Boot Bench cabinets as a platform for the mattress. The drawers add plenty of new storage for toys or could even be used as a dresser.

A wall bookcase cabinet was used to create a headboard with additional storage for books, toys, an alarm clock and even the family cat!

If there’s a space in your home where toys seem to accumulate but there is no accessible storage nearby, consider creating a nook in the space. A boot bench or banquette seating can be used to create a fun and useful nook for your family. Not only will it add new storage for toys and games, it will also serve as a new space for your children to play, work on homework, enjoy a book, work on an art project and more.

I love the design of this casual styled nook! It's the perfect place to have a family game night with plenty of storage in the seating to tuck away toys and board games. Using bootbench cabinetry to create a seating area, this multi-purpose space can be used by adults and kids alike.
