1. Categorise

If you can, separate their room into specific spaces or corners that define their purpose. A sleeping space, reading nook, play area, closet, or wardrobe. Even if it’s a small room, having assigned space for each activity helps kids to know where their things are supposed to be. The best way to make this work is by having the perfect storage space for everything! From crates, tubs, and baskets, take some inspiration from some of these DIY kids storage ideas to get their bedroom neat and tidy:

Stacked Wooden Crates

Stack wooden crates up & use them as bookshelves like this one. Make sure they are stacked permanently together for safety using screws & then securely attaching them to the wall. Paint them in bright and happy colours to have a vibrant reading nook. Throw in some cushions so they can sit and read their favourite books.

Hanging Wardrobe Storage

Another way to use crates is to hang them up in their wardrobe. Perfect for small rooms that don’t have room for extra shelves that eat up the floor space. Hanging storage is the perfect solution to this! You can have each crate assigned to different things like toys, clothes and even small items for babies like nappies, and even toiletries!

Floating Crate Shelves

Having floating shelves is a smart way of keeping things organised. It’s also a great space saver! Paint and decorate wooden crates to coordinate them with the rest of your kids’ bedroom. Display their favourite toys, artworks, and other knick-knacks. These look good above their study desks too and won’t take up space when they do their homework.

2. Colour Code

It’s easier to identify your containers like tubs and baskets through a colour coding system. This works well too when you’ve got a bunch of kids. You can assign them their own colour for their storage so they know which one is theirs. Below are some DIY Kids storage ideas using colour code organising:

It’s also great to have nice labels to match the aesthetic of their rooms. Here are some storage containers with labels that keep things organised and still look pleasing to the eye:
