Remember to keep storage furniture and containers low down to the ground in a kids room. And also use simple storage containers, ones without lids are best. Keeping things low and simple, makes it easy for kids to store away their own items, and makes it easy for them to get things when they need them. Here are some simple kids room storage ideas that do just that.
1. Making It Look Good: Wooden crates look good, and are pretty versatile when it comes to storing things around a kid’s bedroom. Put them on wheels and they’ll be easy to move around (Apartment Therapy).
In my toy storage post, I talk about making storing fun. Use old vintage suitcases, or paint wooden crates to create a theme (for a boys room have a red painted crate with “Fire Department” in black, or a white crate with “NASA” in Blue. A girls room could have a pink princess crate, or a blue mermaid one).
2. Pops of Color: Check out the DIY plywood cubbie shelf in the picture above (Cherezbey), painted in different colors for a fun look. When it comes to cubbies, you want to have the shelves low to the ground – so kids can store things away easily and get items when they want them.
3. What’s Under the Bed? The space under the bed is a great storage space in a kids room. You can use sliding containers (IKEA). Or you can even build a DIY kids bedwith non-toxic pallets that has storage under it (Hviit). A way to create a lot of space under the bed is to use a loft bunk bed, so a desk can fit under it (Bunk Bed Ideas for an Awesome Kids Room).
4. A Bed Shelf: Having a shelf close by to the bed lets a toddler or a child keep toys, books or a light close by (Remodelista).
5. Making Use of Doors: The back of doors can be used for different kids storage ideas. You can get over the door organziers (get one here) that can fit over the bedroom door or over closet doors – Hello Little One. Hooks and railings can be fitted to the inside of closet doors for hidden storage.
6. Large Containers: Using large containers, without lids, helps make it easy for toys and items to be stored away in a kids room. Use plastic bins, metal buckets, a chest, or wicker baskets – all of these can be painted over to create a more playful look (BHG).
7. Keep Those Books Open: Simple wall storage brackets can be used to store and display reading books – letting kids grab a book whenever they want – seen on Domestic Simplicity and available from IKEA.
