How to Hide a Mess in a Play Room

Toys have a habit of exploding all over a home and hiding in corners. Sometimes an unsuspecting foot comes down on one, and it can badly hurt a person’s foot (Lego’s are known for this). Now one option to help prevent this kind of scene is to have a custom designed playroom.

So with a playroom that’s organized, everything has a place. Kids can learn to put the toys in custom designed cabinets too in containers and tidy up at the end of playtime. Having a separate play area catchall and playroom is also easier on parents since the majority of the toys are confined to one place and not all over the home. This way custom cabinets, drawers and shelves can be designated for toys, books, puzzles and games. Clean up will be simpler, and the kids will learn responsibility in cleaning up after themselves too; especially if the cabinets are in the playroom. Also, it’s makes it easier for the kids to find the toys that they’re looking for. But what if you don’t have an extra space to make into a playroom?

If you don’t have room for this kind of separate play area, you can keep toys under control too in whatever room or rooms the kids play in because bins and toy boxes are great for hiding messes in a hurry. A closet or empty cabinet would be perfect for storage as well as a custom made window seat with a storage space inside. Baskets are great for a quick pick-up and toss-in additionally.

Now if young children are having trouble remembering what goes where; pictures of general items could be taped to the places where the specific items need to be stored. Let the kids have input also on where they want to place they’re toys to be stored if practical. This will help them to remember where the toys go.

Keeping the area tidy of toys when playtime is over is easier done with organization.

The Benefits of a Built-in Laundry Room

Doing the laundry is the bane of many people’s existences. Not only is it a chore, but it can take up both time and space. So having a laundry room that is both functional with custom cabinets and organized space can make the job a little easier.

So taking away that “it’s time to do laundry” pain is an added bonus. But what a bonus because it’s a chore to try to keep clothes stain-free; sorted, clean and then dried and put away neatly. But if your laundry room has custom cabinets to organize cleaning products, a place for hanging and folding laundry right out of the dryer, then you may have an incentive to spend more time in this area. It beats folding clothes on the bed or couch and having laundry clutter around when company comes over unexpectedly.

Plus, when your laundry room is custom made to your specifications, you can have that long folding table that you’ve always dreamed about. Maybe even a place created to store unmatched socks until the mates show up. Also you can add brightness into your life. So if your laundry area is dark, white cabinetry can bring shine to the area. You could put in cheery lights or other designs too. Additionally, if you would like a touch of style and elegance, then you can always use natural wood cabinets in a wood and finish of your choice. The ideas and choices are unlimited, and a professional can help make those ideas come to life. Instead of walking into your laundry to piles of unwashed laundry and clutter, you’ll then have open work spaces and cabinets to put your supplies in.

Further, having a finished laundry room will add value to your home if you’re thinking about selling it in the future. So if your home has a well-organized and customized laundry room, it could be that extra selling point which makes your home stand out.

Doing laundry may not be your favorite chore, but a customized laundry may make it more bearable.
