Organized child playroom

Children tend to accumulate toys, clothes, and all sorts of knick-knacks that will clutter up a room in no time. Thankfully, there are several ways in which you can create space in a child’s bedroom so that he or she has space to play, work, and relax.


The first step in making space in a child’s room is to get rid of clutter. Include your child in the decluttering process by giving them a say in which old clothes and items are sold or given away and which are kept. At the same time, be prepared to put your foot down if your child is unwilling to get rid of something that he or she doesn’t need or use. Make a rule that every time your child gets a new toy or clothing item, an old toy or clothing item is gotten rid of. This prevents the re-accumulation of clutter.

Take a Look at the Bedding

Wall beds are a great choice, especially if your child’s room is small. These beds are available in many styles and sizes, making it easy for you to pick one that will look good in the room. Alternatively, you could have a wall bed custom made to suit your needs. Closet and Storage Concepts of New England is the #1 wall bed retailer in the United States and we specialize in making these types of beds for children’s bedrooms. These allow a space to be transformed into a study area, playroom, and rest area. Although our beds are safe and secure, Murphy beds are best in older kids’ rooms. 

Use Vertical Space

Pegs are sure to come in handy in any child’s room. They can be used to hang jackets, towels, a child’s uniform, and other items that tend to get lost in the clutter in the closet. Vertical shelves can also come in handy if you don’t have enough storage space. Many moms have found that using storage bins in conjunction with a shelving unit is ideal as it helps children learn to keep toys, art supplies, socks, shoes, and other items organized and in their place. 

Hanging organizers are good for small items such as pens, pencils, socks, and underwear. You can buy these online or even make your own. Hang them on the wall or even inside the closet to keep clutter off of a child’s table or desk.

Creating a spacious, organized atmosphere in your child’s bedroom not only provides your child with the space he or she needs but also teaches them the importance of keeping their bedroom organized and free from clutter. Personalize the tips outlined above to suit your situation and enjoy the calming atmosphere created when a room has ample storage space and everything is properly put away as it should be.
