15+ Useful hacks for organization kids’ rooms

Get the most from the space in a child’s room by zeroing in on every storage opportunity. Look up, under, inside, and all over for places to add or increase useful storage. Here are some ideas that can add to the storage in your child’s room:

Under the bedthe space under a bed for storage

It’s easy to use the space under a bed for storage. Use rolling bins or drawers that fit neatly under a bed, or look for flat plastic lidded boxes that are low enough to place under the bed frame. Another neat solution is to choose a bed with built-in drawers.

ClosetsClosets in kids room

Think of a closet as a box that can be fitted any way you choose. Then, plan and use every inch of this valuable space. Children often need relatively little space for hanging clothes. So, instead of one closet rod at eye level, install a versatile closet unit with adjustable shelves, drawers, and rods that will create a super-useable storage space from floor to ceiling.

Storage benches, chests, and trunksStorage benches, chests, and trunks

Consider all options before using these in a child’s room. At first look, they seem perfect, but heavy lids can close hard on tiny fingers. Either install safety hinges or lock the trunk and use it for out-of-season items.

Open shelvesOpen shelves in the kids room

Bookshelves offer great storage for books and toys, however, they can also make a room appear cluttered. Hide some toys away in boxes, trays, bins, or baskets that fit neatly onto the shelves. Plastic lidded storage boxes are one solution to keep small toys sorted and together, but shoe boxes or other sturdy containers might also be used and can be decorated to match the room.

Ceiling spaceCeiling space in the kids room

Look up when you need more space in a child’s room. Display shelving can sometimes be installed about a foot down from the ceiling line. Use it to show off collections, trophies, a child’s artwork, found objects, and the like. And for stuffed animals, small hammocks are available that can hang in a corner. Perfect storage for children with many stuffed animals – to keep them up and out of the way, but still within view!

Game centerGame center in the kids room

If your child loves games and puzzles you’ll need a place to store all of the game pieces, boxes, boards, and stuff. Separate each type of game into plastic storage boxes to keep pieces together. The lower shelves of a closet can be a great place for these items.

Think bigto beds instead in the kids room

Use a pair of chests next to beds instead of teensy nightstands. It’s a great solution for storing clothing, toys, and desk supplies.

Memory storageMemory storage in the kids room

Plan for a place to keep photo albums, scrapbooks, schoolwork, art projects, and memorabilia. Some parents prefer file cabinets, others use acid-free boxes, and some have storage areas designated in other parts of the home. Keep in mind it is much easier to put an item away if there is already a “place” to put it, so plan for this very necessary function.

Window seatsWindow seats in the kids room

When building a window seat, consider installing cupboard doors or drawers underneath rather than a lift-up lid. It will be easier to access the area without the danger of a lid closing unexpectedly. Use this handy storage for seldom-used toys, blankets, sleep-over sleeping bags, and the like.

A wall of storageA Wall of Storage in the kids room

Customize stock bookshelf units by installing them side-by-side along an entire wall of the room. Attach each unit to the one next to it and secure the back to studs with heavy fasteners. Apply stock crown molding along the top for a more finished, custom look.
