These storage solutions will keep the mess to a minimum in your child's bedroom.

It goes without saying that kids’ bedrooms can be a pain point when it comes to keeping them tidy. Finding places for growing collections of toys, books, art supplies and so much more can be a difficult task if you don’t know where to start. Not only will these storage ideas keep mess to a minimum, they’re so cute the kids might even enjoy using them. Here’s hoping!

Wall mounts

Have less floor clutter by mounting some fun-shaped hooks on the walls. These are perfect for school backpacks, hats, coats, aprons and even craft items like wool or fabric. Be sure to make them a kid-friendly height to encourage their use.

Modular furniture

Modular furniture solutions for kids’ bedrooms are popping up all over the place, notably in bed and desk combos. Kids love them because they bring all the excitement of bunk beds, cubbies and a little bit of adventure in climbing up to the top. Adults love them because they save space and are (relatively) easy to keep tidy. Win-win.

Shelving that’s a little bit like a puzzle adds an element of play for kids to use. Having open spaces and closed drawers means favourite items can be on display, and smaller toys as well as those with lots of pieces can be tucked away.

Play pouches

A genius solution for toys like lego that have lots of little parts, these play pouches unfold to become a mat that kids can build on. Once it’s pack up time, just pull the string and everything will bundle up together into a handy little pouch that can be left where it is or put away.
