Storing children's toys (Lego, craft, plastic tat etc)

I have a 1yo DD and 4yo DS, so my house is full of plastic tat, craft materials, Ben 10 aliens, Lego, power rangers and stacking cups and flowery shite people insist on buying DD because she's a girl

Mostly, this is stored in our living room and dining room. We have some plastic boxes stacked up and one set of plastic drawers, but we need something that holds more.

Any suggestions for storage or ideas for how to avoid drowning in this sea of toys?!

Are you me?
We live in a new house with a pointless fire place that used to be home to a naff electric fire that we never used. We knocked out the fireplace, boarded up the hole and a local cabinet maker built a cupboard in the gap. Normal people would find it very handy for Dvds etc, but for us, most of the toys go in there.

Crafty stuff has a unit in the kitchen.

Ikea Trofast. Lots of. Mixture of big and little drawers, with lids.

The fireplace sounds quite cool, Bikerunski, but sadly not an option here.

The Trofast stuff looks promising - will def be considering that!

We have Trofast (in the cupboard under the stairs). It's genius and means DDs can actually find their toys rather than everything being stuffed into a massive box.
