Face it, you’re never going to get perfection when it comes to organising kids rooms… but, we’ve got some great organisation tips that’ll straighten out a little bit of the chaos and make family life easier.
8 Brilliant tips for organising kids rooms
Kids bedroom organisation tips – underwear pots
Because life is better if you can at least find your pants, right? These little ‘pop up’ tubs from IKEA are a fab solutions for kids underwear storage, they can just grab them and go. And when you’re sorting out the laundry and putting it away you can just pick up the pots for each kid and sort quickly and easily into the right pots all in one go.
Kids bedroom organisation tips – storage boxes
It’s a great idea to have stackable transparent crate style boxes in different sizes, then just store toys, like with like. This makes tidying up at the end of the day much quicker, and it means kids can find the toys they want to play with easily.
Kids bedroom organisation tips – Lego storage
I find big shallow tray style boxes work best for Lego. They slide easily under the beds and they’re big enough to be able to have a good rummage through for the pieces you want, without always needing to tip the Lego all over the floor.
Kids bedroom organisation tips – book storage
Keeping books on low level shelving makes it much easier for kids to see and reach the ones they want to read.
Kids bedroom organisation tips – clothing storage
I fold all the kids clothes using the Konmari method this way they can see exactly what clothes they have and they’re easy to get to without rummaging through the whole cupboard.
Kids bedroom organisation tips – special treasures
Kids always keep little ‘treasures’, usually a random selection of stuff they’ve picked up or found, so they always need a little box to keep them in…. and if they’ve got a special box then all those things don’t end up scattered around the house and lost.
Kids bedroom organisation tips – school book storage
Older kids really need a place where they can keep all their school stuff together so it doesn’t get lost. A desk or shelf is fine. This saves you from the awful task of having to search through the entire house looking for ‘that book’… Get kids into a routine of emptying their school stuff from their bag every night and putting it in their ‘school corner’
Kids bedroom organisation tips – cosmetic storage
Another one for older kids… teenage girls have mountains of cosmetics and make up. It’s a great idea to invest in some of these ‘hobby boxes’ you can pick up from craft stores, they’re perfect for keeping make-up and cosmetic collections neat and accessible.
