When decorating a kid’s bedroom, it’s important to think about storage and organization. With brightly colored shelves, hammocks and mesh bags, it’s possible. This is important because it will help keep a kids’ bedroom clean all the time!
Tips For Keeping A Kids’ Bedroom Clean
The paint color’s been picked out, the furniture chosen and the kid’s bedroom design is almost complete. Now it’s time to think about how to organize their clothes and toys.
Custom Closet Shelving
One of the best places to start organizing a bedroom is with the closet. Closet shelving systems, whether built specifically for that space, or pieced together from a kit will help start the project off right.
Storage shelves can be built at multiple heights to make the most of the space, and also make it easy for smaller people to get to what they need. This can help leave room for not only clothes, but games and more seldom used toys. Over-the-door shoe organizers can help get shoes off the ground, leaving more room for storage bins to place out-of-season or outgrown items.
Wall Shelves Leave More Space on the Ground
Building shelves either directly into the walls, or bolting shelves to the walls, is a safe and effective way of containing books, collections, photographs and other personal items. By being placed up off the floor, it allows the room to open up more, and leaves more room for furniture or play space.

Toy Storage Hammocks and Mesh Laundry Bags
For children that have a lot of stuffed animals, consider using a toy storage hammock. These mesh bags hang from the ceiling or walls, and can contain even the largest stuffed animal collection, while keeping them in view and easy to reach. These are perfect for a kid’s bedroom!
Brightly colored mesh laundry bags can be hung over the backs of doors and can compliment just about any color scheme. These can help keep laundry up off of floors, and avoid a hamper, which may take up valuable space in the closet or room.
Try a Toy Bin or Two
Brightly colored toy bins and chests can be great ways to organize a child’s many toys. Try grouping toys by category to make them easy to find. For instance, toy cars go in the blue bin, while Lego’s or blocks go in the red one.
Toy bins and chests are available in all different sizes and decors, so it’s easy to get some that will work with the toys and the space in question. Some are even stackable for more storage with less of a footprint. You can even decorate cardboard boxes for storage bins if you want to save money.
Have the child help decide what toys will be kept in what bin or shelf, to help ensure that the storage system gets used. More frequently used toys can be kept in easier to reach bins, while those with less use can go on shelves.
Use Bulletin Boards to Display Artwork
Try using large cork boards on the walls for the child to pin notices, notes and artwork to. This will help keep from marking the walls, while allowing for easy changes and replacements as tastes change.
These tips are crucial for keeping kids safe in the laundry room!
Remember to keep the overall theme or design of the kids bedroom in mind when adding organizational elements. Also keep the current age of the child in mind, while remembering that kids grow. This means putting things on multiple levels, and trying to use shelving systems that can be reconfigured as time goes by in order to get the most use out of them.
Above all, have fun and create a place where pick up is as easy as play time.
