Kids Storage Solutions
If you’ve ever paddled around your child’s bedroom barefoot, tidying up silently while they sleep, and then trod on a rogue piece of Lego, you’ll know how vital proper toy storage is. The seemingly never-ending array of books, toys, games and dressing up equipment litters every child’s room, with it only getting worse as they grow up.
Creating smart, functional storage that the child can access easily is important in designing a space that works for both the kids and you. Don’t be afraid to experiment, talk to your child about what they need to keep their toys organised, although most will just want them scattered across the floor; that’s the easiest access after all!
Keep It Bespoke
Toy storage requirements will always be changing quickly as the children grow so creating bespoke storage that suits you, and your family is important. Keep it simple and bear in mind that it needs to adjust to the changing requirements of a growing kid, and ever-present books and toys. Make sure the storage is within reach of the child, keeping books low down, and boxes labelled.
There’s nothing better than a couple of personalised things to encourage your child to tidy up after themselves. Bags or sacks in a playroom or behind the sofa, labelled for each of your kids, will convince them to keep their treasures safely cached until the next time they are wanted.
Beautiful and Practical
Toy storage doesn’t have to be boring, and it doesn’t have to be made up of a pile of plastic boxes from the store. Make your storage part of your interior design. Add beautiful or funky pieces to walls and the floor that doubles up as storage for books or prized possessions, Keep the boxes in the cupboard or under the bed.
As they grow, they may not need space for that lego anymore, but tweens and teens still require proper storage. Whether it’s for crafting tools, robot model kits or their collection of games. Keep giving good storage solutions for their bedrooms and you might just help them create a jumble free room. Well, we can but imagine!
