Moms of younger kids, I’m about to let you in on a little secret. The toddler years are easier than tween+ years when it comes to keeping your kids rooms clean and organized. Gone are the days you can “declutter” without them noticing. Gone are the days where we wait for them to go off to school and barge into their room in a hazmat suit and trash bag ready to bring peace back to a home. Now I am met with “where is that piece of paper that was on my desk from when I was 3? I was playing school with it?” or “Where is that stuffed animal that was missing a leg, I was about to doctor it back to health.” No longer is it easier for me to just do it myself. I am not having to teach and show ways to organize so that we are both happy.
I am convinced that there is a direct correlation to the amount of stuff we have in our homes and the chaos in our environments with our raising levels of anxiety. And while we are always working on teaching healthy ways to declutter, until that concept is grasped, we are working on ways to organize to keep our spaces nice and clean. When it comes to storage solutions for kids’ rooms, there are many options to consider. Here are some ideas:
- Shelves: Installing shelves on the walls is a great way to create additional storage space in a kids’ room. You can use floating shelves, bookshelves, or cube shelves to store toys, books, and other items.
- Bins and baskets: Large plastic bins or woven baskets can be used to store toys, clothes, and other items. These can be stacked on shelves or placed on the floor for easy access.
- Under-bed storage: Utilizing the space under the bed is a smart way to create storage in a small room. You can use rolling storage containers or purchase a bed with built-in drawers.
- Closet organizers: A closet organizer can help maximize storage space in a kids’ room. You can install shelves, drawers, and hanging rods to create designated spaces for clothes, shoes, and other items.
- Toy chests: A toy chest is a classic storage solution for kids’ rooms. They can be used to store larger toys, stuffed animals, and other bulky items.
- Pegboards: Installing a pegboard on the wall is a great way to create storage for toys, art supplies, and other small items. You can add hooks and baskets to hold items in place.
- Wall hooks: Hanging hooks on the wall is a simple and practical way to keep items off the floor. You can use them for backpacks, jackets, hats, and other items.
By using a combination of these storage solutions, you can help keep your kids’ room organized and clutter-free.
And it’s baby steps. One thing at ta time. Our current obstacle is stuffed animals. And there’s a lot of them. But these are treasures to my children and decluttering isn’t an option at this time. So finding furniture pieces that have multiple uses that can grow with us is what I was looking for. Cue the Sunnydaze Solid Pine Wooden Storage Chest
