How can I organize my 4yr olds toys that isn’t tacky and won’t stick out like a sore thumb like most toy organization systems do?

Your challenge is to find containers that go with your sense of style.There are many ways to use ordinary living room and den furniture to store toys. You can hide toys in end tables with drawers, coffee tables with pull out baskets or drawers, and ottomans with removable lids.

You can put children’s toy sets into more attractive containers and place them on open shelving.
Be sure to coordinate the bins if they are not transparent.

If you have large toddler toys, consider getting a room divider screen, or a shelving unit that works as a room divider, like the Ikea Expidit bookcase seen here and available at Ikea and

The best way for toys not to stick out like a sore thumb is to have fewer toys. Only keep what you have room for and they won’t stick out at all. Extras can be put into a storage closet and switched out occasionally.
