Keeping a kid's bedroom tidy and organized isn't an easy task. Not only do you have to provide them with the places to put things, but you have to stay on top of them keeping their things picked up. Here, you'll find a few solutions to the organizational challenges that come with a child's bedroom.
Household Storage Units
Have you ever taken the time to look through the many types of household storage units available these days? There are storage units that mount to the wall, slide under beds and attach to existing furniture that'll make things easier to maintain full organization.
As you pick and choose the storage unit that'll meet your needs, take a few moments to read some reviews about the product. Some items aren't made well enough to hold up to the abuse that most kids will put it through, others won't clean up as nicely as they should.
The nice thing about these storage units is that there are organizational storage systems that can be pieced together. For example, you can find a desk that you can add a hutch and a drop side to. This will provide storage above the desk, as well as provide extra desk space when it's needed.
Raise the Beds
If you have little ones, you probably don't want to go with a bed raised too far off of the ground, but if you get some bed risers, you can raise the bed enough to allow for more storage underneath. You can get rolling bins that are filled with toys or clothing and can easily and quickly be tucked under the bed when they're not needed. Risers can be found as small as a one-inch lift all the way to an eight-inch lift.
Older kids can benefit from loft beds. There are different heights to choose from, but those with the desks and dressers built into them, they are typically full-height beds. Lower loft beds work very well for kids that are old enough to not fall out of bed, but not quite secure enough to be raised all the way up to the highest bunkbed level.
Command Hooks and Baskets
Command hooks are one of the greatest organizational tools that you'll come across. These neat little gadgets can be stuck to the wall and you can get baskets to hang off of them. This is a great storage solution for small items, like craft supplies, small toys, even socks and underwear.
The initial organization of the room will be the hardest, but once everything has a place, it will be easier for your child and you to keep up with the work that needs to be done each day.
