Storage Ideas For Kids’ Rooms

No matter if playrooms are getting somewhat chaotic, or bedrooms are always cluttered, finding the right way to tuck things away in your child’s room can be difficult. From peg boards to toy boxes, every mess has a storage solution.

Introducing Storage To Your Child’s Room

When researching your storage options, there are a few things you need to consider:

  • What you are wanting to store
  • What space you have to use in the room
  • What is your budget
  • Will your kids want to use it
  • Does it fit with your existing furniture

Space-Efficient Storage Ideas

It can be difficult to find a tidy, safe way to store your child’s favourite toys in a room that doesn’t give you much room to work with. When working with limited floor space, you need to get creative with how you utilise the space.

Think Outside the Box

One key factor when renovating any room is to try and think of new, fun ways to achieve your desired look. Kids’ rooms are no different. Think outside of traditional storage boxes and find something that better fits the space. Whether it be a treasure chest hidden in fitted furniture for a pirate-obsessed child or bunk beds to give active twins more floor space to play with.

Store Toys in Wardrobes and Closets

If you’re looking to store toys or books in a way that makes the room feel more open, then utilising unused wardrobe and closet space could be the answer. By fitting an extra shelf or two, and adding a small unit of drawers or open-backed shelves, you can create extra storage that doesn’t invade the space in the bedroom.

Look For Unlikely Spaces

A brilliant way to fully utilise your space is by looking for hidden nooks that can allow you to maximise how you use your space. Some under-utilised gaps that you may find in your space include:

  • Empty space under bed frames. In this type of space, you can introduce airtight containers to store anything from out-of-season clothes to school art projects.
  • The tops of tall furnishings, such as wardrobes. Easily stackable objects, like books, can be stored on top of existing furniture.
  • Smaller crevices between solid furniture. If you have a somewhat sizable gap between existing solid furnishings, such as shelving units, consider fitting an extra shelf to connect the two.

Space-Saving Furniture

A handy shopping tip when working with limited room is to look for a variety of space-saving furniture. Day beds, ottoman beds, loft beds and wall beds are an example of how one piece of furniture can be transformed into a more space-friendly solution.

Budget-Friendly Storage Options

Redecorating on a budget? Not an issue! Having a reduced budget for your project doesn’t automatically mean your choices for furniture are limited.

Upcycling Old Favourites

A great way to save cash when getting new furniture, is to not buy new furniture. Whether you’re buying second-hand, or repurposing old favourites, upcycling is the way forward. For example, repainting an old dresser is a great way to refresh the furniture and make it fit in with the rest of the room without breaking the bank.

Organising Cluttered Bedrooms and Playrooms

One of the most difficult things when it comes to renovating a child’s room is getting the space to stay uncluttered. But there are ways to make this task easier for your little ones.

Separating Work and Play

A great way to avoid general clutter in your space is to find a way to separate work and play for your kids. You can start to do this with a desk. Having a desk in your kids’ rooms gives them a designated area to do their schoolwork or general arts and crafts, meaning all the stationary and craft supplies will be stored and used in one area of the room.

This same method can be applied to a multitude of activities, a bookshelf to separate a reading corner is another example.

How Do I Organise My ADHD Child’s Room?

When it comes to rearranging any child’s personal space, getting them involved in the process is essential, but this is especially important for neurodivergent kids. Giving them the option to make big decisions with their new furniture, such as what colour it will be, will allow them to properly adjust to the changes happening in their space.
