Kids Bedroom Ideas For Storage & Organizing: Hall Of Fame
Below is the kids bedroom ideas hall of fame, where readers have shared photos of how they've organized and added storage solutions to their children's rooms.
We tackled this exact task in Week #45 of the 52 Week Organized Home Challenge here on the site.
It is always a challenge to organize and create storage solutions in a child's room because you often have to have so many different types of things in there, including clothes, the bed, homework stuff and sometimes even toys.
Remember that before you begin to decorate and organize this room a thorough decluttering will really help, and make things less chaotic in there!
If you've tackled this room yourself don't forget to share your photos here and I'll add them to this hall of fame.
Now scroll down to see what other readers have already done to get some ideas and inspiration for yourself.
I love this little girl's room shared by a reader, Erica.
It is both pretty and has some great storage solutions in it, including the stuffed animal net in the corner (my daughter has one of those and loves it), as well as a nice play area with cute little bins.
There are a couple of different types of storage bins. The first are open stackable bins which can be used to hold loose toys. These are idea for a child's room because kids can just pull things out, and put them back away without ever moving the bins themselves.
The second type of storage are the cube organizers. The ones Erica has used don't have cloth storage drawers in them, but are instead just used as divided storage for books and similar items. But you can get the fabric drawers for them if you wish for items to be hidden inside, instead of visible.
Cute Rugs & Other Decor Choices Can Make The Room Look Great
A reader, Victoria, shared this collage of photos of her daughter's room.
She used basic storage solutions including a stuffed animal chute, hinged and lidded toy chests, and a cute cube bookshelf to help organize and store items in the room.
But it was really the bright happy colors that she chose, not only for the bedding and rug, but the organizers and storage items themselves which make the room look so cute.
Victoria explained about her picture: "Picture on the right of the collage shows how we store our daughters soft toys - a hanging storage contraption that only costs £2 from Ikea!"
Further, she stated: "Ikea is amazing for storage and really quite affordable too - that bookshelf was £35 and we've put it on it's side so our daughter can play on the surface, and when she's bigger we'll pop it up the other way to make room for a desk.
And the front-facing bookshelves are £3 spice racks from Ikea that I've painted to match."
A reader, Sunny, shared a collage of her daughter's room.
She explained, "She's been moved to a big girl bed since we took these pics so it's a tad different but still similar.
Lots of storage, along with a reading nook, in the closet and a big toy box for stuffed animals at the foot of the bed."
What struck me most about these photos (and I think all of them look wonderful!) is that when you keep the closet doors open it seems to open up the room more, like they're is more space.
Obviously, you've got to keep things rather organized if you're going to do this, but in a toddler room like this looks like it might actually be easier than when they're older and they play unsupervised in the room.
Notice Sunny used those little cube organizers that have been in quite a few of these photos. They're popular for a reason -- they are versatile and can hold lots of different types of items.
Let Your Child Express Their Personality In Their Bedroom
by Amy Gizienski
Here are a few picture of Amy's son's room.
One of the many things I like about this room is that it allows the child to express their personality.
There are drawings and fun trinkets that were made and collected by Elliot in the room, which help let him claim ownership of it.
Technically, while the room really belongs to the parents, allowing a child some autonomy and ownership of their room and its decor can help them take pride of ownership, and hopefully help take better care of it. (That's the idea anyway -- sometimes easier said than done, I know!)
I like its overall uncluttered feel. Anytime there is less stuff and more space in a room it feels calmer and more restful, things that are really very important in a bedroom.
In addition, the vanity with a seat is a really nice touch. It gives the room some personality, as well as being functional.
Are You Ready To Get Organized Now?
I hope these kids' bedroom ideas have inspired you to tackle your children's room as well.
If you do, I'd love to see your before and after pictures. You can submit them here and I'll add them to the page.
Further, if you've now caught the organization bug from seeing what you can accomplish I'd love it if you joined the 52 Week Organized Home Challenge with us. In it we tackle a different room or type of item in our homes each week, and slowly, over the course of the year, get the whole house organized, while also developing habits and strategies to keep it that way.
