Does your child’s room need extra storage? The challenge that most people face when looking for ways to add storage to a child’s bedroom is that the options need to not only be practical but also fit in with the existing décor of the room. The good news is that this is possible to achieve with a little bit of planning. Here are some of the best storage solutions to use for a child’s bedroom:
Choose the Right Bed
An easy way to free up more storage in a child’s room is to choose the right bed. You can either choose beds that save space or ones that actually have storage options built right in. Beds such as bunk beds, loft beds, and even trundle beds can free up floor space to allow for more storage opportunities. Beds with built in storage, such as captain’s beds, are also a good choice for a child’s room because the bed itself actually adds storage opportunities.
Buy Storage Furniture
Furniture such as chests, dressers, and storage trunks offer more ways to store extra items. Chests and dressers, for example, offer a great way to store clothing and accessories. Storage benches offer a great way to store items such as sweaters, blankets, and even toys. Buying the right furniture for a child’s room starts with understanding how much space you have and using it to its full potential. For example, by placing a storage bench under a window you can easily create an extra place to sit while also creating more storage opportunities.
Use Plenty of Shelves
One of the best ways to add more storage to a child’s room is to use shelves to create more space. You can either mount the shelves on the wall or buy freestanding bookshelves, depending on how much space you have. Shelves that mount on the wall don’t require extra floor space so they’re a good choice for smaller rooms. Shelves can easily hold items such as books, toys, and even baskets filled with smaller items.
Customize with Storage Cubes
Storage cubes are also a great choice for a child’s room because of how versatile they are. These cubes are also customizable and you can line them up, stack them, and even mount them on the wall as needed. This allows you to accommodate your child’s unique storage needs while also utilizing the available space. These cubes come in different styles, which make them even more versatile. You can buy regular cubes, cubes with shelves, cubes with cabinets, and even those with drawers. If your child is old enough, you can have him or her help you design a unique storage solution using these cubes.
