While we’d all love to give our children whole fairytale castles and enchanted forests to play in, sometimes we have to accept the limitations of our living space. And when that living space is small, a scattering of toys on the floor can suddenly look like a whole lot of mess. Luckily it doesn’t have to be this way. There are plenty of fun and funky storage hacks that you can use to maximise space and minimise clutter in your children’s bedrooms.
Have you ever played hide and seek with your kids? Next time, take inspiration from your little ones and see if any of their hidey-holes can be used for a bit of nifty storage space. Take underneath the bed, for example. Simply installing some underbed drawers is a great way to maximise this unused space; it’ll make hide and seek more challenging but tidying up a lot easier (plus there’s the added bonus that there’ll be nowhere left for monsters to lurk either).
Tidying up shouldn’t be more of a chore than it already is. Simplify post-playtime cleanup by getting your child one toy chest in which all their toys can live happily ever after. Making tidy-time a simple matter of depositing everything in one place means your little ones are much more likely to clean up after themselves, so you don’t have to. Toy chests can add to the overall fun and theme of bedroom decor too. Take this Fantasy Fields Dinosaur Toy Box for example, or this cute Sunny Safari 3 Bag Storage Cabinet. Fun and practical? We love.
If you don’t have the floor space for storage, no matter. Take to the walls instead! Using your wall space means your children’s toys and belongings can be tidied away even in the smallest of rooms. There are plenty of options, too. If your child has a lot of books, give them their very own bookcase. Lots of small toys and gadgets? Hang up a play pocket tidy or a cute bunk bed buddy. Storage doesn’t have to be boring either. This Uno S Storage System adds both plenty of space-saving storage and lots of lovely colour.
