Simple Storage Tricks for Kids Rooms
Little ones have a lot of stuff, so we’ve gathered out favourite ways to keep the colourful chaos in check.
Encouraging your child to take charge of their toys and tidy them away makes it clear that their room is their own space. You can involve them in the planning by asking what coloured storage they’d like, what goes where, and how they’d like to customise it so they are a part of the whole process.
Divide and conquer
By grouping similar items together with colourful boxes, trays and clothes pegs. Categorising their types of play ensures that when they decide to draw, dress up or build a castle, all of the pieces come from the same place, and go back in the same place.
Create a dedicated art space for them to get creative
Invest in a small table and chairs an easel, maybe even paint a wall with blackboard paint to create a backdrop for their creative expressions, and have a gallery wall to hang their favourite pieces if the fridge is looking a bit busy.
Out of sight isn’t always out of mind
Especially when you’re a little one, but under-bed storage can be a great option for hiding a good bulk of soft toys between teddy bear’s picnics.
Low level storage is perfect for kids to tidy their own stuff away, and it’s easy to paint or use removable wallpaper to update any furniture when they get a bit older.
Use hanging storage to make the most of the vertical space to add personality while also keeping the floor clear. While it’s space-efficient, hanging storage can be better suited to infrequently used toys as depending on the height of the storage they might need your help getting toys in and out safely.
Another vertical option is to add floating shelves for things they use less often, prized toys they’ve outgrown but won’t part with, or heirloom pieces. Floating shelves can make great display pieces as well as adding extra storage space.
