Kids have a lot of stuff, and you have to put all of that stuff somewhere or it will quickly become hazardous clutter. Luckily there are a number of options available that make use of clever designs, space saving features, and even whimsical motifs, ensuring that your child will stay organized. At the same time there are a number of simple tricks you can use to make the space naturally trend towards tidy.
Standard storage options for kids rooms will include things like shelves, dressers, chests, armoires, and bookcases. These can be purchased on their own, or found and bought in bundled sets, which will have several pieces of matching furniture included. This allows you to outfit an entire bedroom with a single purchase, while also making the task of decorating a breeze. Often these packages will be discounted overall, making each individual item less expensive.
One thing that you need to do is make sure that organization in your kid’s room is as simple as possible. You don’t want to employ a million tiny containers for different categories of toys and personal items, as this can be confusing and overwhelming for the child, who may simply get frustrated and give up. Rather the use of a few, large, well labelled bins will make putting away their possessions so easy that they will barely have to think about it.
If space is limited in your child’s room, then you will have to get creative about storage. One option is to purchase beds that have drawers, shelves, and other organizational features built directly into the frame. These make use of what is otherwise wasted under and side bed space, giving you plenty of places to put toys, books, games, and school supplies. Captain beds are the best for this, but many bunk beds also have similar designs.
If you find that your child just does not have any interest in keeping their room clean, then you can try turning the process into a game. Storage bins and furniture pieces can be covered in colorful posters, poster board cut out shapes, or dressed in wrapping paper to make them look like giant presents. Employ chalk paint so the child can write what belongs in there on it themselves. Glow in the dark stars can also be a fun and whimsical way to make cleaning less of a chore.
