As your kids grow up, do you get the feeling that they need more space with each passing day? Their clothes, shoes, books, games, sports equipment just keep on piling endlessly! Storage becomes a headache…and you think that you might lose it!
Here we will show you a few tricks to keep your cool in the war against clutter…
A large closet or wardrobe is often the best and most obvious solution. If you can devote an entire wall for this, nothing like it! Use beautiful, colorful bins (http://tinyurl.com/okj2jbb) wherever required. They hide the mess and add to the decor.
Designing a “raised” bed for your growing toddler or teen is perfect since drawers or shelves below the bed, provide ample space for things rarely or seasonally used. You can also preserve toys he no longer plays with.
Check out this room below…the way storage has been designed both under and around the bed, is ingenious! Space has been efficiently utilized.
Simple open shelves on the wall can look very stylish if cleverly color coordinated. But if you combine them with some beautiful wall art, like decals or stickers (http://tinyurl.com/pgll6hw), it will look brilliant! See the images below for a better idea…
Fancy wire baskets on the wall look chic and are space saving despite being able to hold toys, books etc. Or you can go for a large pegboard to hold all stationery and craft items or maybe hang his favorite art work!
When space is a worry, combining the bed and study area “vertically” is a smart move. It’s a fun arrangement for kids too!
If the room is being shared by siblings, even then it is possible to create enough room for storing all their needs! A look at these rooms below clearly shows that even stairs have enormous possibilities!
So now that you know what all ways can keep your kids happy and their room clean, simultaneously…get started 🙂
