Tired of disorganization in your kids room? Use our guide to a clutter-free kids’ room and take back your sanity!
Children bring a lot of joy and excitement to the world along with a lot of clutter in the house. As each year passes, they are bound to collect more items that keep piling up in their rooms. Children learn through playing and play is bound to get messy. However, when everything has a home in their room, it’s a lot easier to clean up after each playtime. Organizing clutter in the kids room can feel like an endless and daunting task. Here is a guide to a clutter-free kids’ room that still allows for playtime and gives you peace of mind.
There are multiple sizes, shapes, and textures when it comes to bins. The important thing to remember is to avoid large open bins. The larger the container, the harder it will be to find specific toys without dumping them all out. Clear bins with specific categories will make it easier for your child to find what they are looking for.
To keep the room more visually appealing, store clear bins in the closet with decorative bins around the room.
When it comes to toys, a lot of options is not always best. Kids can have a hard time deciding which toys to play with which can lead to taking all of them out but playing with only a few. Put any unused or seasonal toys in a bin so you can place them in a storage closet. Rotate toys every week or every other week so kids have new options to play with.
Buy Space-Saving Toys
When considering which toys to buy your kids, look for items that aren’t bulky. Large kitchens for playhouses are fun but they will take up a lot of space. Instead, look for pop-up tents, tunnels, and playhouses that can be taken down and stored when not in use.
Create a Clean-up Schedule
Pick a regular time to clean up toys together. The first time, show them where each item goes and teach them how to sort. Add some music to make things more exciting or turn it into a game to see who can put items away faster.
Find Ways to Keep Toys Off the Floor
Child-sized furniture such as a table and chairs is a great way to keep toys off the floor. They provide a stable surface to play with small toys and can prevent you from stepping on toys all over the floor. A storage cubicle or bookshelf will also keep toys off the floor.
Use the Walls
To add more excitement to the room without taking up floor space, consider a whiteboard or chalkboard on the wall for creative art. Find some vertical shelving to display items up higher and keep floor space available.
