Lively Children's Room Wall

A painted checkerboard motif, in lieu of pricier wallpaper, is the perfect backdrop for items on display.

For a smaller bedroom or playroom, consider mounting individual shelves instead of storing books, toys and dolls on a large bookcase. Items are still accessible and on display, but the floor is left clear, making the room appear larger than it is.

For more storage tips, see our Organizing Kids' Play & Work Spaces photo gallery.
