When you first have a baby, you have daydreams of what your home life will be like as that child grows and gets older. Commonly, those daydreams focus on housework, where you can get things done, while your child plays in an organized, peaceful fashion in another room. And, at night, you are met with a tidy playroom because your little one knows how important it is to keep their things picked up and cleaned. Ha—whatever. These are daydreams for a reason.
In reality, every room is a playroom, and nothing is ever as clean as you want it to be. But no worries. You can delegate the bulk of the toy chaos to one of two places—the child’s bedroom or a designated playroom.
Playrooms are Dedicated to Toys and Extracurricular Activities
When you designate a playroom, you move the bulk of the toys and activities to a single room for extracurricular fun. This is where your kiddo goes to have a great time throughout the day, and the set-up is entirely at your discretion. You and your little one could pick a décor theme together, then invest in toy boxes that make it easier for your youngster to be somewhat organized in their after-playtime routine.
Establish the Bedroom as THE Room for Naps and Bedtimes
Having a designated room for play, and then another for naps and bedtime, might make it simpler to get your kiddo to go to sleep when nighttime rolls around.

Keep Both Well-Organized in Respective Ways
You and your kiddos can achieve a semblance of all-the-time tidiness by keeping a playroom and bedroom organized in their own respective ways. Expect a playroom to be a little cluttered with toys, but aim to keep a made bed, folded clothes, and organized décor in the bedroom.
If you opt to combine a playroom and bedroom, make sure you have plenty of space for both. You could even use a natural separator, like a colorful rug, to designate the play area from the sleep area.
