As your children grow
older you will need to store things that they no
longer use from the earlier stage of their life. Even
if you decide to dispose off with these things later
on you will still need some place to store them
immediately. Look for any spare place that you can
find in the children's room that can be used for
storage. Tips on storage solution for your kid's room:
The space under a child's bed can be used for
storing things. You can use storage bins that can be rolled
under their bed, fix drawers under their cot or use flat boxes
that fit under their cots. The ideal thing would be to buy a
storage bed with built in storage space.
Using a closet with adjustable shelves,
drawers and rods will help you use all the space available
efficiently for storing things. Before arranging things in the
closet plan carefully so that you each and every inch
If you are using chests and trunks in your
child's room, make sure that you use them to store things that
are infrequently used, example seasonal clothing. As the child
may hurt himself while opening and closing the chest or trunk.
Opens shelves can be used to store books,
toys, sport equipment etc. Just arranging them on the shelf
may make the room look untidy. You can use cane basket,
plastic boxes or decorated cardboard boxes to hold different
toys and other stuff neatly on the shelf.
If you think you need additional storage
space in your child's room, you can have storage shelves
fitted about one foot from the ceiling. Here you can display
your child's awards, things he collects, his works of art etc.
If your child owns a number of board games
and enjoys using them, you will need to store them carefully
so that none of the pieces go missing. Using plastic boxes for
individual games is a good idea. The last shelf of the closet
is the ideal place to store them.
Think well ahead. Do not invest in dainty
little nightstands for your child's room. Use a chest of
drawers or a pair of chests that can be used to store
everything from clothes to desk supplies.
Remember that your child will want to store
things for the his photo albums, art projects scrapbooks etc.
so make place for these things too either in the child's room
or some other place in the house.
Fix a couple of drawer or cupboard doors to
the window seat in your child's room and you will have
excellent storage space. These are better than lids that lift
up as your child could hurt while using it. Store things that
are not regularly used in this space.
You can make your own wall-to-wall storage
facility by securely fixing a number of open storage shelves
next to each other. You can store your child's books, toys,
games, clothes etc.
