Good Questions: Separate Areas for Sleeping and Playing? | Apartment Therapy Ohd

Good Questions: Separate Areas for Sleeping and Playing? Jackie is looking for suggestions: My daughter has a large bedroom. It is 12'x13' We are having trouble making 2 separate spaces, one space for sleeping and one for play... (Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first. Email questions and pics with QUESTIONS in subject line to: nursery(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)com ) I am just not sure how to situate anything. She is 3 so she has A LOT of toys.

Please forgive the mess: You can see the play kitchen with the kitchen materials, next to that is a bucket of play food (pottery barn kids buckets are fantastic), next to that the table for "eating", and to the right is a nest cube filled with dress up costumes (and a sword hilt sticking out.) To the right (and not included in the picture) is his chalkboard/dry erase/pull down paper easel. The books up high are the "nice" books tha

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Use bins to organize things. The stuff that you don't leave out on your desk does still need to be organized. Color-coded bins work just as well in home offices as they do in kids' rooms.
