The twins had such a superb Christmas this year, for they are at such a magical age (3 years old). And they were very, very spoiled by us and by all of our family. They have been so lucky and received some amazing presents from our loved ones. Including new bikes, a 6ft dinosaur, tablets, tracy island and a crying baby Annabelle. To name but a few! However, since that lovely, special Christmas Day we have since been drowning in toys. No joke. And all I have been able to think about is the need for more storage in our home, like the one shown above (source).
We have a superb box-unit, similar to the one shown above, except ours is from Ikea. Which currently sits in the playroom of our new build home. It keeps all the toys hidden away when it is tidy up time and is very practical! But this isn’t quite enough for everything these days. Because since Christmas time, we seem to now own every toy and game going!
We require some more boxes and tubs to store all the various games, toys, books and puzzles. And so I have been scouring the net for some new pieces. There are some gorgeous ideas and lovely furniture out there to add to the twins bedrooms and their combined playroom.
I really dislike boring plastic storage – even though it is practical and cheap – and so I want something a little more sturdy, that goes nicely with their decor. I love white, and also like colours and patterns too.
So here are my 6 favourite picks from the internet from some superb children’s home and interiors shops:
1/ Canvas tubs by the Great Little Trading Company, £25.60 (each)
2/ White bookcase by Jo Jo Maman Bebe, £75
3/ Storage box & tubs by IKEA, £50.50
4/ Flower toy box & desk by Wayfair, £92.99
5/ Kids roaring dino box by Dunelm, £19.99
6/ Storage cubes by A Place for Everything, £62
These canvas tubs (1) are exactly what I am currently searching for. The colours and textures are ideal, and they would add some personality into their rooms. Great for throwing toys into at the end of a busy day! The white bookcase is also exactly what we need for the playroom (2) as they have received so many classic books this Christmas.
These storage tubs from Ikea would be great for the hall (3) – for all their new shoes, wellies and slippers!
I love this pink desk for Lottie (4)! It is perfect for her and doing all her drawings. And Harry is dinosaur obsessed at the moment so this tidy up box (5) would be ideal for him. He would love it.
And then finally these storage cubes would be great for their bedrooms (6) for keeping their teddies and books in, by their beds.
So there! Some amazing storage solutions here and all very reasonably priced too. These items will definitely help me win the war on space! Go Mum!
