As a parent, there are few things more frustrating than having to deal with too little storage or floor space in your kids' bedrooms. The good news is that maximizing space without having to sacrifice on style is easier than you might think.
Maximizing Storage in Kids' Bedrooms
Here are some tips for getting the most out of limited bedroom space.
Choose Built-in Options
One of the best ways to maximize storage in your kids' bedrooms is with built-in solutions. Whether you're looking for a place to store books, toys, or clothing, there are many options available today. Some of these can be hidden away behind doors and others can be out in the open for all to see.
Here are some examples that may work for you:
Built-in bookcases: if your child has a lot of books, having several built-in shelves is essential. These will provide plenty of space while still allowing room for their items to breathe and remain organized at all times.
Closet organizer: you can also get creative with this type of storage by using one that opens up like an accordion file folder—it's perfect if you have small children who may not be able to reach high shelves as they grow older.
Opt for Beds with Storage
If you don't have room for a dresser, a bed with storage is a great alternative. The options are endless, but some of the best options include:
Storage beds that have built-in drawers underneath the mattress
Beds that have shelves on both sides
Beds with side cabinets
Make use of Under-Bed Space
The space underneath your child’s bed is a great place to store toys and other items that they don’t use daily. There are many different options for storing items under the bed, including drawers, trunks, boxes, baskets, containers, and bins. The best way to maximize this storage space is by using bags or baskets with handles at the top for easy access when needed.
Use Wall Space
You can use a small piece of furniture, like an ottoman or bedside table, as additional storage space. Another option is to add hanging shelves or hooks and utilize the space on the walls or back of doors to hold things such as belts, bags, or jackets.
Making the Most of Your Space
Now that you know how to maximize your child’s bedroom storage space, it’s time to get creative and get started. From built-in dressers, beds with storage underneath and shelves on the walls, there are so many ways to use your space wisely without sacrificing style.
