One of the most common things I see when people are complaining about storage space in their children’s rooms is a lack of customised storage. There are so many different options for customising your child’s closet, and today I’m sharing with you some great examples! Whether you’re working with a small reach in, or you have the luxury of an entire room, there’s bound to be something to inspire you here.
Quick tips on making the most out of your space:
- Opt for adjustable shelving – that way, your storage can adapt for a growing child.
- Store out-of-season or expensive clothes on higher racks, and use the lower ones for day-to-day items that your child can pick out themselves.
- Utilise baskets for items that won’t hang. Wire baskets are good because air will still circulate, preventing mildew from forming.
- Label drawers with the days of the week, and pre=plan your child’s outfits. Hopefully this will save you some time (unless a hissy-fit hits!).
- Add a laundry hamper with wheels that your child can pull to the laundry room when its full.
- Pocket doors will ensure that little fingers don’t get pinched, and won’t take up as much space in a smaller room.
- Take advantage of ceiling heights – build your storage up higher than you normally would and add pretty boxes on top to hold things that you won’t be using any time soon.
