Best Playroom Storage Shelves With Sliding Bins
First up, sliding bin shelves. They are one of the best playroom storage solutions! Kids can easily access the bins and see what is inside. Short bins (like the ones pictured above) hold just the right amount of blocks or coloring books. You can also purchase tall bins for larger toys.
I recently did a kids’ closet makeover with sliding bins to hold toys and craft supplies. I used shelves and felt bins from Target that would be perfect for playroom storage. My kids (eight and five years old) can easily remove the bins and carry them to the table for a project. Clip-on bin tags make it easy to keep the bins organized!
I also used sliding bin shelves in my son’s room for organizing Legos. This is the IKEA Trofast system, but in case you do not have access to an IKEA, here is a similar option from Target.
In this case I used adhesive clear label pocket holders and printed labels for each type of Lego set. Alternatively, you could use blank business cards as labels. Sliding bins are so versatile and make some of the best playroom storage. Shop even more options below!

Best Playroom Storage Cube Organizers
Cube organizer shelves are another great option for organizing toys in a playroom or kids’ bedroom. They often come in two sizes: 11″ cubes or 13″ cubes. Personally I love the 13″ cube organizer from Walmart and have used it throughout our home in different colors. Here is one styled in my daughter’s room!
One thing I love about a cube storage shelf is that it has a more subtle, minimalist look. These shelves are perfect for a playroom, but can also be used in a kids’ room, living room, or dining room (as shown below!). Here are my exact white fabric cube bins from Walmart, and a similar option from Amazon.
When my kids were younger, our dining room doubled as a playroom so that I could keep an eye on the kids more easily. A wood toned cube organizer (color: natural) made the best playroom storage at the time because it blended in with my decor and kept the toys hidden yet organized.

Mesh Zipper Pouches for Playroom Storage
Now for another playroom storage favorite: these mesh zipper pouches from Amazon! If you need to organize smaller toys or Legos, they are the perfect solution. In the past I tried using gallon ziplock bags, but the pouches are much sturdier and easy for kids to use. Here is a similar set that includes label pockets and labels.
Mesh zipper pouches are one of the best playroom storage solutions! Use them for:
- Art supplies
- Train tracks
- Doll accessories
- Playing cards
- Jewelry supplies
- Lego sets
- Polly Pockets
- Hot Wheels
- Calico Critters
Playroom Closet Hanging Pocket Organizer
Another great hack for playroom storage: use an over-the-door hanging organizer. In the photo above, you can see that I used one to hold art supplies and card games. This is also one of the best storage ideas for Barbie dolls, stuffed animals, and dress up accessories. Here are some more hanging pocket organizers to consider:

Best Lidded Baskets for Playroom Storage
Finally, sometimes you just need a catchall for toys that always end up on the floor. This is where lidded baskets are your friends! Keep a few nearby for stuffed animals, dress up clothes, or extra large blocks.
Lidded baskets are one of the best playroom storage ideas. They are also perfect for any room in your home that you want to tidy quickly at the end of the day. In the photo above, I used two at the end of a bed for extra blankets.
