They are IKEA. The cabinets with doors are EFFECTIV, we bought them ages ago for a kitchen in another house that had very few cabinets, but a big blank wall, but we don't need them in this house for that, so they became toy storage. And the open ones are IKEA too, can't remember the name, but I found some white sterilite open containers at walmart that fit perfectly and were much cheaper than the IKEA ones that fit the shelves, plus my kids would have destroyed the IKEA ones instantly. I love it because there is room for all their toys and still plenty of empty space.
It's a basement, its L shaped sort of (the stairs are around the corner to the left), the empty space at the end now has our old sectional couch in there. Of course, it doesn't look anything like this now, its covered in toys everywhere. I love having the playroom in the basement, because the toys tend to stay there, but I also tend to get to that last in my cleaning since I can ignore it LOL
