We know it’s hard enough keeping your own closet organized, let alone your child’s. With its unofficial role as the discarding area for all extra clothes, toys, and sports equipment, things can get pretty cluttered. With these tips from the team at Closet & Storage Concepts proudly serving the greater Las Vegas area, you’ll be able to keep your child’s closet organized and clutter-free.
Use an Assortment of Storage Bins
Bins of different sizes and shapes work well for different things. Use storage drawers on wheels for regularly accessed clothes or other items. The drawers allow for easy access and the compact structure allows for it to take up as little space as possible. Having one with wheels makes it easy to pull the whole thing out if you need to reach anything behind it. For certain toys or other items accessed less frequently, put them in bins that you can place on the upper shelf in your child’s closet. This organization technique works well for sports equipment out of season that your child won’t need to reach for a while.
Make It Fun
Using color coordination for your storage bins will make your child’s closet visually appealing, which will make them more likely to want to be involved. You should also label everything so you can find what you need quickly. Use a fun and bouncy font for the labels to keep it youthful.
Keep Things Within Reach
Remembering not to put regularly used clothes or toys on upper shelves in the closet is especially important for younger children who have a hard time reaching up high. Designate a bin or two on the closet floor or lower shelf for the toys they use the most. Use the double hanger rod method for clothes. Children’s clothes are smaller, don’t hang as low, and don’t take up as much space. This means they can be hung in multiple rows. Having the lower row accessible to them allows for them to reach their own clothes without needing your help, while also teaching them the habit of putting clothes away.
Utilize the Closet Door
If you have a door that allows you to hang a storage system on, take advantage of it. Every bit of space counts! A hanging shoe rack can be used for shoes, but can also hold toys, dolls, and other small items that tend to get lost or create clutter. Like the double hanger system, this allows for some things to remain within reach of your child without ending up on the floor.
