Kids storage organizer ideas for your home

Use these kids’ room organisation storage hacks to keep their books, clothes and toys under control once their playtime is over. They are easy to implement and won’t take much of your time. That’s a promise! 

A kid’s room can be just as neat and organised as the other rooms of your house. Yes, you heard it right. Just follow this quick and straightforward kids’ room organisation storage guide, and you’ll always get through this often complex task in a breeze. 

Let’s first have a look at some tips for achieving a super tidy and organised kids’ room:

  • Remove all the items that are broken, clothes that are unwearable or books/toys that haven’t been used for a long time. Throw it in the trash or donate it.
  • Once you have a clear idea of how much stuff is left and how it needs to be stored, start organising it section by section to avoid being overwhelmed. 
  • Clean and dust all the surfaces so that your kids’ room becomes spotless and more hygienic. Make sure that the kids’ bedroom interiors look fun, exciting and in sync with your kids’ personalities. 
  • Try to replace the ordinary furniture in your kids’ room with multifunctional furniture with additional storage capabilities (such as an ottoman/bench/box bed with built-in storage spaces). Try rearranging the table in the room as well to give it a fresh and more open feel. 
  • Keep the horizontal surfaces (top of the desk and dresser) clean and clear of extra things as they can often become a magnet for creating disorganised piles of stuff.

Now, it is time to dig into some intelligent kids’ room organiser storage ideas. So, without any further ado, let’s directly get into it.

Kids’ Storage Organiser (Horizontal)

This horizontal kids’ storage organiser features a space-saving bunk bed with built-in shelves and other differently sized sections, which is a storage lifesaver indeed. You can use the shelf above the lower bed to display the kids’ toys and the additional concealed drawers to hold books, clothes and small knick-knacks. You can also use labelled baskets instead of stuffing the cubbies with toys and stuff to maintain a clutter-free look.

The best tip for organising a child’s room is to make the storage spaces blend in and a part of their play area only so that they pick up their toys on their own

Kids’ Storage Organiser (Vertical)

You can use the colour distinction of the two separate wardrobes to differentiate between the kind of items that you want to store in each of them. For example, clothes and accessories in one and toys and books in the other. This is the perfect kids’ storage idea for small spaces
