When you're sharing a house with youngsters, it's not always easy to keep said house clean and organized and beautiful (or even keep the chaos under control). Fortunately, many of the folks we've interviewed over the years for our Apartment Therapy video series are parents, too. Here are some of their best tips for decorating with kids in mind.

From interior designer Rebecca Robertson, here's a low-cost, inventive, and attractive way to keep toys easily accessible but out of the way.

Maybe your little munchkins are constantly making new masterpieces, and you're running out of space on the fridge. In this one minute tip, Rebecca shows how to create an inexpensive art wall where you can display children's masterworks — and switch them out whenever you like.

As kids gets older, they like to have a little more control over their space. When Judy Galen's son expressed a desire to spray-paint the walls of his room, she found herself torn between encouraging his creativity and preserving her home's resale value. In the video, Judy, a costume and set designer, explains how she came up with a solution that made everyone happy.

Happy weekend everyone, and thanks for watching!
