Where to get the best kids' storage for a tidy and organised space

Find the perfect place to keep children's toys, games and books out of the way

Chloe Best

If your living room or child's bedroom is often littered with miscellaneous books, toys and games, it's time to think about storage. We've rounded up some of the best storage solutions that are as stylish as they are practical. Some are even celebrity-approved, too.

Where to get the best kids' storage:

IKEA:

IKEA is a favourite for budget-friendly and practical furniture, and their range of children's storage is no exception. Even Fearne Cotton headed to the chain to pick up a storage unit from the Trofast range for her daughter Honey's range - a piece that costs £73 and features a pine frame and plastic storage boxes inside. The range is perfect for children's rooms and is available in different finishes and shapes, meaning there's an option to suit most rooms.

Alternatively, IKEA's Kallax shelving units are ideal for storing smaller toys and bits and bobs. Starting from just £20 these units hold boxes (sold separately) that are available in an array of different colours.

My 1st Years:

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are known to be fans of this label - with Prince George previously donning his adorable personalised dressing gown for a meeting with Barack Obama in 2016. As well as clothing, this site is also a good place to go for storage - particularly if you want something personalised for your child's room. These pieces are particularly good for families with more than one child, as each one can keep their own belongings in their individual storage box or bag. We love the personalised toy chest (£120), a wooden chest that is sure to be a much-loved addition in their bedroom for years to come.

Amazon:

It may not be the first place that springs to mind when you think of furniture, but Amazon actually has some amazing children's storage, including this unit by HelloHome (£39.99) that is adorned with characters from the much-loved kids' book The Gruffalo (even Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are fans, according to Prince William). There is even a matching bookcase available, as well as a wooden chest.

Argos:

Pick up a great storage solution on the high street at Argos. As well as storage towers for as little as £16.99, the retailer has designs like a toy box that can double up as a bench, and sleek bookcases so they can keep their favourite books on display. Better still, they're only £24.99.

Cuckooland:

For fun yet functional furniture for your children's room, look no further that Cuckooland. They may be a little more expensive, but these pieces are long-lasting and multi-purpose, with highlights including this Play, Learn & Sleep bed by Lifetime (£495). Acting as a bed, slide, chalkboard and storage space all in one, what kid (or parent) wouldn't want this?

Wayfair:

It's no wonder Giovanna Fletcher turned to Wayfair when it came to revamping her baby's nursery ahead of the birth of her baby son Max. The online retailer has a vast array of children's furniture, including storage solutions from as little as £10.99 - some even designed to look like oversized LEGO bricks - sure to be a hit with any LEGO-obsessed youngsters. There are toy boxes adorned with some of their favourite characters too, from Paw Patrol to Frozen's Princess Elsa, they'll make a fun and colourful addition to your child's bedroom while tidying up their clutter.

Kiddiewinkles:

These personalised storage baskets from Kiddiewinkles are not only practical for storing their favourite toys, but pretty too. Choose from designs including stars and gingham checks in their favourite colours, and add the message you want personalised on the side. Available for just £25, they're a bargain addition to your child's bedroom.

Next:

The Mummy Diaries star Sam Faiers has previously revealed she has Next furniture in her son Paul's playroom, showing off the cabin bed she had bought him on Instagram. And the high street store has a number of children's storage pieces, with furniture such as beds, wardrobes and chest of drawers in matching collections - ideal for creating a tidy and co-ordinated space. This Compton triple wardrobe (£325) offers space for storing clothes and shoes, as well as a spot to display their favourite books, toys and accessories.

Dunelm:

We have a feeling Disney and Marvel-obsessed kids will love the range of storage furniture from Dunelm. You'll find everyone from Winnie the Pooh to the Avengers on their colourful furniture range, including toy boxes, bedside tables and shelving units, many of which cost as little as £20.
