Creative Storage for Your Kid’s Room
Having kids around the house usually means clutter isn’t far behind. Toys, clothes, and books have a nasty tendency of being scattered around the room and eventually end up getting misplaced or even lost. Cleaning up the clutter in kid’s rooms often pose a bigger challenge than most because organizing a room usually means getting rid of some stuff and learning how to put things back properly, both of which are activities kids don’t usually like to do. Trying to get your kids involved with organizing requires a bit of creative storage, both to involve your kids in the process and make it easier for them to keep things organized.

Having kids around can be a handful. Not only do you need to chase after them, you also have to clean up after all the toys and books scattered not just in their rooms but quite possibly around the entire house as well.
Kitchen cabinets or built in cabinets in your family room not only do wonders in keeping your rooms tidy, they can help keep clutter out of your kid’s rooms as well. The cabinets can hold numerous storage bins that can be filled with toys, seasonal clothes, books and other miscellaneous items. Painting them in lively colors and fun designs will keep them from looking drab and boring, and is a great idea to keep things that are not used often out of sight.
Storage bins are also a good idea to store toys and other items that are used regularly. Instead of keeping these bins hidden away, placing them under the bed keeps them within easy reach. Labeling the bins also helps keep clutter to a minimum, making sure they can find what they’re looking for without having to go through every single box.
Constructing shelves around your child’s room is also a great idea to keep their stuff organized. High shelves can be used to store a lot of stuff that they use rarely (like seasonal clothing for example) and lower shelves are for things they may use every day. Make sure the shelves are designed in a way that things are easy to put back as to encourage your child to put things away properly when they’re done with them.
This brings us to one of the most important tips to keep a child’s room clean and clutter free, and that is to get your kid involved in keeping things tidy. Any mess that happens in your kid’s room will eventually have only one source, and it will be your kids. It’s a good idea to teach them early that keeping things neat and tidy is a good habit to have. Do cleaning regularly and have your kids help. If they make cleaning a routine, most messes will be minimal and they will eventually keep things tidy without having to be told to do so.
If you really have limited space, but don’t really want to throw or give anything away, renting a budget self storage unit may be the best option. These keep your items safe, and are an inexpensive way of storing things that would otherwise take up your limited storage space. A budget self storage unit, combined with all the other solutions above would go a long way in keeping your children’s rooms neat and tidy.
