Playroom Redo

A pro organizer helps a family restore the functionality of their playroom by decluttering the space.

  • This large, 18 x 14-foot playroom is so full of outdated toys and games that the twin teenagers for whom the room was decorated 10 years ago no longer use it.
  • A large desk, which holds two computers, takes up the lion's share of space in the playroom, but is so messy that it hardly is functional.
  • Stacks of books and papers that are no longer used fill the bookshelves by the desk, making productivity difficult.
  • Each twin has a closet for storing things like personal games, but neither is interested in sorting through so many outdated items. Therefore the doors remained closed.
  • Unused game tables piled with unused games take up any floor space not filled with the desk or piles of old stuffed animals.
  • Once the huge desk was removed, space opened up for a comfortable new couch, whose upholstery dictated the fresh blue-and-white color scheme. You can actually see the carpet now!
  • A unique coffee table was created from an old skateboard game by raising it up, adding a drawer and covering it with Plexiglas. It functions both as a game and a table.
  • The closets, once stuffed with neglected toys, are now side-by-side workstations outfitted with computers, desk areas and denim cubes that can be used as extra seating in the room.
  • An old armoire got a fresh coat of paint to match the new cabinets and shelving unit that provides room to grow.
  • A drop-leaf desk provides extra work space for arts and crafts projects. The new built-in cabinets above the desk provide space for books and craft materials.
