The Best Storage Benches for Kids’ Rooms

As your kids get older, it feels as if the toys start multiplying—sometimes overnight! There’s no reason your playroom, nursery or child’s bedroom needs to look like a disaster zone of dolls, blocks, puzzle pieces and more. Yes, sometimes storage bins and baskets look like an eye sore or create even more clutter. That’s why we’re all about this sneaky storage idea—benches! Storage benches open up the room to more seating while hiding toys. They’ll make your room feel put together and organized—and no one will ever suspect if things are disorganized inside these benches!

We love this bench because it’s as luxurious as it is durable. The velvet upholstery gives it a comfy feel whether you use it as a seat or ottoman. It comes in four colors (pink, teal, grey and purple), sure to match any room and delight any child. The sturdy design holds a static load of up to 550lbs so feel free to fill to the brim with books, blocks, toys and anything else you need out of sight.

A white, wooden toy chest never goes out of style. And this one is made with kids in mind, featuring a safety-hinged lid that’s a cinch to open and close—so they have no excuses for them to start cleaning up on their own. The seat is perfectly sized for kids to relax with a book or lounge with a favorite stuffed animal.

This bench seamlessly blends into any playroom. Kids will love sitting on the comfortable, faux-leather cushion on top and placing their toys in the three accessible bins featured underneath. The top cushion is secured to a strong wood frame that doubles as a lid, so adults can lift it up and get a full view of everything hiding inside the bins.
