Thankfully, there are a lot of clever storage solutions out there that work for any kids space, large or small, and are even budget-friendly. Try these tips for kids room organization to add storage and make it easier to keep it clutter-free.
Tips for Kids Room Organization
is a great way to provide extra storage space to a kids room. There are lots of stylish, budget-friendly options that suit small spaces, which you can find at stores like IKEA, The Container Store, Walmart, or Target. You can also hang shelving if you don’t have the floorspace for bookcases.
Take advantage of the height in a room. Shelving all along the ceiling, for example, is charming and provides lots of extra space that you can store things on that your child doesn’t necessarily need all the time, like mementos, books, or stuffed animals.
Baskets and boxes
To organize items on shelving in a streamlined way, baskets and boxes are very efficient. You can get them in just about any size and color to personalize it and it creates a clean look when everything is put away. It’s also easy for kids to toss their stuff back in them after they’re done playing.
There are lots of furniture pieces that come with hidden storage so they do double-duty, such as beds with drawers underneath, ottomans with a compartment inside, and benches with storage
. If you’re buying new furniture, look for pieces that offer built-in storage to make the most of the space (and your money).
Under the bed
If you have a normal bed, you can turn it into a storage spot, so to speak, by getting under-the-bed storage containers that will slide right under it and out of the way. These are great for seasonal clothes, toys your kids don’t always play with, and other items you don’t necessarily need to access all the time.
Behind the door
There are a variety of storage options that hang on doors which can provide space for shoes, toys, art supplies, jewelry, toiletries, etc. They come with pockets, shelving, and other storage solutions that take advantage of the empty space in a closet, bedroom, or bathroom door. Such a great way to use the space!
