No matter how many systems you may have in place for keeping things organized, children will go with the fastest, easiest solution. It’s much easier for them to walk in the door and leave a trail of jackets and gloves and hats behind them. It’s much easier to toss something across a chair then it is to hang it up. If you tell them to pick their things up off the living room floor, chances are they will pick it up, walk it straight into their rooms and dump it. It is a constant battle with children to keep things organized in a home. One thing you can do to at least ease the burden of having to constantly follow them around barking orders to “pick up” is to make the “system” as easy as possible. Here we’ll take a look at some common kids storage practices and issues and find some easier, faster solutions.
Children’s Storage Problem #1:
“Out of site, out of mind.” Toys stored in large plastic storage bins get buried and forgotten.
Trade out those bulky bins for something easier for children to handle. Baskets and fabric open-topped storage bins are lighter and smaller so they are easier for children to lift and carry. There are no lids to fuss with making it easy for even small children to clean up. If you must use closed-top containers, choose boxes that are small enough to be easily moved even when full of toys. Having handles on the lids is an additional plus.
Children’s Storage Problem #2:
The all too often heard “I didn’t know where it was supposed to go.”
Once again, open topped containers work best for this. No lids to fuss with. Clear containers also work well, but sometimes for young children the toys themselves, seen through the containers, are so “busy” and distracting that they can hurt more than help. Label everything. Label with words or pictures depending on the age of your child. Labeling things with their brand names and logos cut from the toy’s packaging (like “Lego” and “Barbie”) help immensely when it comes to kids identifying where their stuff goes. They spot their favorite brands from 60 paces at the store so use that talent at home! You can use double-stick tape, ribbon or special label sleeves to attach the labels to bins.
Children’s Storage Problem #3:
Jackets and the floor. I sometimes wonder if children’s jackets are magnetically attracted to the floor.
Storage Solution: Hooks mounted right inside the main entrance/exit door at a height appropriate for your children is a great help. This could be the door to the garage, a basement door, the front or back door. The key is to have them at the door your children use the most. If you have the available space by your entrance, purchase a bench with storage beneath it. Children can stow their shoes, boots or book bags under the bench seat.
Children’s Storage Problem #4:
Bookshelf disaster! You stack the books neatly on your child’s bookshelf only to find them later in heaping piles or all askew and shoved in every which way.
Storage Solution: There are two solutions to this problem depending on the age of your child. For younger children who have not yet learned to read or are just beginning to read, use a bookshelf that stores the books with their faces forward. Children can quickly see the book they want and it will always go back correctly (though sometimes it might wind up backwards). With older children, most of the mess on bookshelves comes from having too many books on a shelf. Move one book and they all start to topple over. Limit the number of books on their shelves and use plenty of bookends. Keep only your child’s favorite books of the month available on their shelf and organize them into smaller sections using bookends.
These are only some of the possible ways to help keep your children organized. Keep in mind that children naturally “aim to please” so make it easy and fun for them. You may also want to ask your children for input, too. They may surprise you with their answers!

Creative storage solutions and decorating ideas for a boys playroom?
I’m looking to turn our guest room into a playroom for my 3 year old son. I was thinking about painting the room blue and using primary colors to decorate it. There is a neutral laminate on the floor which is great in case my son who loves to paint gets messy. Wondered though if you had any good decorating and storage ideas as well as other items to include in a boys playroom that are age appropriate?
I have some great age appropriate decorating ideas and storage solutions for a boys playroom that incorporates both colorful storage bins as well as gives the room a theme. Primary colors are a great way to organize and decorate a boys playroom.
A nice shade of blue will give your son’s playroom a pleasing backdrop. I’d suggest using Mythic Paint as it’s an environmentally friendly low odor paint ideal for kids rooms. Click here to learn more about the benefits of Mythic Paint. To select a kids paint color check out The Land of Nod Collection of Mythic Paint Colors.
I suggest opting for a shade of blue you love and goes with a variety of different things. If the playroom is on the small side, I would advise you opt for a lighter shade over a darker one. Loving the paint color will also help it stand the test of time as your son grows.
Once you have your paint color selected, I’d recommend you explore the variety of wall decals and peel and stick kids murals available to dress up your son’s playroom. The main benefit of using kids wall decals and mural stickers is that you can easily update the room again without having to repaint. For a good selection peel and stick wall decor ideas visit www.kidswallstickers.net and www.childrensmurals.net.
In addition to kids wall and mural stickers, consider peel and stick chalkboard panels or purchasing a wall easel for your son.
A kids bookcase or a stable shelving unit (one that is secure and won’t fall on your child) is a great place to start. Add in a few storage containers for keeping smaller items organized and grouped together. You can organize your son’s toys by color-coding (e.g. the blue toys go in the blue bin) or by labeling storage bins and baskets with photos or illustrations. As he gets older you can replace the images with words. Smaller storage boxes inside of bigger ones help keep like things organized and contained in one main area. For kids storage solutions visit www.storageforkids.net
Keeping toys and books accessible is key for children of this age. You can encourage independence by having your son put away anything he takes out. One idea would to limit the number of playthings he is allowed to take out at one time. If he wishes to play with something different, he first has to put away the toys he currently has out (unless of course, they are meant to be played with together).
Supplying a collection of lightweight kids storage containers will make toys and playthings just as easy to put away as they are to take out. Keep favorite toys on a height appropriate shelf and infrequently played with items can go on higher shelves. If your son has too many toys and has a tendency to be overwhelmed with too much selection, you may want to consider packing some up and storing them away for a month of so and then reintroducing them. It’s a great way to give old toys a new life.
A great way to decorate a kids playroom is by selecting fun yet appropriate toys and furnishings like an easel and cozy chairs, cushions and bean bags. Adding in a kids rug is a great way to bring in more color and/or bring a playroom theme together. For more playroom furniture ideas please visit www.buykidsfurniture.net

Budget-friendly storage solutions for girls’ toys, school items and clothes?
I am a mom of 4 girls (ages 7-2) and we home school. What practical suggestions can you give to keep toys, school items, and clothes tidy and easily accessible without spending much money (say under $50)? The girls have 2 bunk beds in one room and the other room is a school/guest room.
Wow! Sounds like you have a busy household. The first thing that comes to mind is to maximize the available space you have. I’m thinking wall shelving and/or tall bookcases with adjustable shelves are the way to go for storing toys and school items. Once you have your shelving or bookcase in place, the most cost effective approach is to take measurements of the shelves and shop a dollar or department store for colorful bins and baskets to coordinate with the room decor.
Consider a variety of storage containers from open bins with handles to storage boxes that can be stacked. Clear jars and containers are also good for identifying items and small organizers (like the kind used in drawers) are great for keeping things organized within larger boxes or bins.
I’ve included some related products from The Land of Nod, one of our favorite online retailers to give you an idea of the types of kids storage solutions that are available and may help you better organize your daughters’ bedroom and school room. Please click on the related kids storage photos for details and pricing.
Since your daughters’ have bunk beds, I’d suggest installing at the head of each sleeping area individual narrow book shelves for night time reading (along with pocket lights) as well as thin cork boards (it’s can be a fun DIY project) or magnetic circles or squares for displaying notes and photos as the girls grow up.
Under the bed storage bins are ideal for storing school papers. For artwork and other school related items you wish to display, consider putting up a thin rope with clothes pegs.
For small items consider purchasing a multiple pocket organizer for the back of a door to keep small school related items handy.
Other recommendations include adding a second closet rod in your kids’ closet as well as two hanging closet organizers on both sides of the rod for each daughter. The Land of Nod offers narrow and wide hanging canvas organizers and canvas drawers in a variety of colors. You could give each child a different color.
Speaking of colors, color coding storage containers it a great way to keep things organized with multiple children.
Although some of the storage solutions and kids organizing ideas I’ve given you are for older children, I have hopefully provided you with some good ideas for keeping your girls’ rooms organized as they grow.
Pretty storage containers and decor ideas for a girls bedroom?
I’m in the process of making over my daughter’s bedroom. We just purchased a nice white girls bedroom set complete with a dresser, desk, and tall bookcase. She loves pink and lavender. I am hoping you can point me in the right direction for some pretty storage containers and girls bedding that would match as well as recommend a good kids paint and paint color(s) to use? And, if you have any good girls bedroom decor ideas please share those too.
Pink and lavender are two nice colors to combine in a girls bedroom. When it comes to kids paint colors, kids decor items and storage containers that coordinate, I’d recommend The Land of Nod. It is a great online company that features a great line of quality products for decorating and organizing kids rooms. Above are a few kids storage ideas. Below are some girls bedding sets in pink and lavender. Please click on the individual girls bedroom photos for details and pricing.
As for kids paint colors, I recommend Mythic Paint. It’s an environmentally-friendly low odor paint. The Land o Nod has it’s own personal collection of paint colors to coordinate with their kids bedding and decor accessories. Below, you’ll find some of my favorite pink and lavender paint chips. For a complete list of Land of Nod paint colors, please visit Mythic Paint.
I suggest you pick one main paint color and then add in a secondary color using accessories. Or, create an accent wall by painting one wall, a coordinating color and using it to feature collectibles and keepsakes on a bookcase or decorative shelf.
Your daughter’s bed can also become a focal point depending on the bedding set, headboard and throw pillows you select. Your options are as limitless as your imagination.

Did you ever see one of those ads with immaculate closets and wish yours could be a bit tidier? You may never need to store exactly five identical shirts on a closet rod, but a closet organizer can help you make the most of the space you have and keep your stuff in order. Many companies now offer modular closet systems you can install for yourself at moderate cost. If you do the job yourself, you can create a closet that’s truly customized to your belongings and lifestyle. Here’s how…
Did you ever see one of those ads with immaculate closets and wish yours could be a bit tidier? You may never need to store exactly five identical shirts on a closet rod, but a closet organizer can help you make the most of the space you have and keep your stuff in order.
Many companies now offer modular closet systems you can install for yourself at moderate cost. If you do the job yourself, you can create a closet that’s truly customized to your belongings and lifestyle. Here’s how.
- Notice how you use the closet and the room. Is it a bedroom where you will store mostly clothes, or does the room have some other purpose, like a craft room, play room, or computer room?
- Notice which side of the closet you naturally approach or open first, especially if it has two doors. Your preference may be because of the room layout or your tendency to be right- or left-handed. Plan to put the most frequently-used items where they’re easiest to reach.
- Notice anything that ends up in piles or hanging on doorknobs in or around the closet.
- If you just moved in, try using the room and the closet as-is for awhile. It’s not that much trouble to empty a closet when the time comes to work on it, and you’ll learn about your usage patterns.
- Measure your closetand determine how much space you have to work with. Measure height and depth in addition to width.
- Check where the studs are because this will also help determine your plan. The mounting screws must go into studs and not just drywall.
- Also, measure how much the frame of the closet and how much it overhangs the space inside.
- Look around at available closet systems, to get ideas and to have in mind the elements that are available to you. Give some consideration to the choice of materials.
- Compare materials. Metal wire shelves are inexpensive and reasonably strong, but they may not have the aesthetics of finished melamine. Melamine and manufactured wood products can be finished to resemble wood, but they are generally costlier and heavier than wire.
- Decide whether appearance is important. It may be important for a large, walk-in closet in a master bedroom or for any exposed storage that is acting as a closet. In a broom closet, on the other hand, it may not matter.
- Compare costs of different systems and stores. Home improvement and hardware stores often carry closet organization systems. So do container and organization stores, not to mention IKEA. Shop around.
- Note what parts are in stock at your local store(s) and what other pieces can be ordered.
- Pick up a brochure or catalog showing what parts are available, so that you can decide which parts will fit your closet. While you’re in the store, get a price list or write down prices of the parts you think you will use.
- Understand what’s involved in assembling the different systems and make sure you’re up to the task. Most of them are fairly straightforward, aimed at do-it-yourselfers.
- Ask which pieces (shelves, rods, and even support rails) can easily be cut to a custom length if the standard length doesn’t quite fit your closet. Many of the stores selling closet systems can even cut the pieces for you, so ask if cutting is available and how much it costs.
- Plan your closet, making sketches, and eventually scale drawings, as you go.
- For your final plan, draw to scale. In general, you will draw an elevation of the closet, the view you will have when you open both doors, but you should also check the depth to make sure that hanging items and shelves fit.
- Determine how much hanging space you will need. In a clothing closet, hanging storage will probably occupy most of the space and cost relatively little, so plan it first and give it an ample share of the space.
- Measure your existing rods and how much clothing you have, in rod length occupied by hangers, adding enough space to slide hangers apart for easy hanging and selection.
- Arrange hanging storage so that it hangs well back from the door. Remember that rods for hanging clothing need clearance both in front of and behind them.
- Plan in terms of upper and lower rods, with rods for longer hanging items like dresses and bathrobes. Many closet systems will allow double hanging for shorter items such as pants and shirts. Measure how long your longest garments hang.
- If this is a shared closet, consider how you can use the closet system to divide the space, giving each user their own rods, shelves, and so on. Try to divide the space equitably, but consider who will store more belongings there.
- Decide whether to include drawers or sliding baskets in your closet. This depends on whether you will be storing clothing or other small objects in the closet. Drawers and baskets are among the more costly items you can install in most closet systems.
- If you have a dresser, captain’s bed, or other storage elsewhere, you may not need drawers in the closet.
- Placing bins or baskets on shelving may be a cheaper, more flexible option for storing and organizing small objects in a closet. Choose drawers if you need frequent access; shelving if you don’t mind a bin-and-basket approach, or if you need flexibility.
- Figure out how much shelving you can include and what will go on it. Measure the height of the tallest objects that will go on shelves to help determine the spacing.
- Plan storage for larger items. Do you keep a clothes hamper in the closet? Do you want it to be built in or loose?
- Plan any special-purpose storage. Will you make space for sports equipment? Will you put your DVD player out of sight, in the closet?
- Plan any work areas that will go in the closet. Will this closet house a sewing machine or computer? Be sure to leave space for the user of these items to access them comfortably.
- Check the space above the rod. If this space is also near the top of the door to the closet, make sure that the shelf up there is shallow enough that objects can pass through the space between the door and the shelf.
- Plan shoe storage for clothing closets.
- Decide which parts you will need of the system you have chosen.
- Incorporate starter kits, if they are available, with a few basic accessories. Often, buying several items as a kit costs less than buying them individually, so compare prices. For a larger closet, you may be able to combine multiple kits with a few connecting pieces.
- Shelves can usually be shortened if the standard lengths don’t quite fit. Often, the store selling the shelving can help you to cut it down, particularly for metal wire shelving.
- Consider the height of the user. Kids may not be able to reach upper shelves and rods until they grow. Shorter people and people in wheelchairs may want certain rods and shelves lower, too.
- Make a list of the parts and kits that you will need, based on the sketch. Include any hardware (screws, etc.) that is not in the kits. Take this list to the store.
- Purchase your closet parts. Take a vehicle large enough for the widest and longest parts.
- Empty the closet and clear the area around it for working. You’ll also need some floor space away from the project to assemble things like drawers if you’re using them.
- Now is the time to paint the closet, if you want to.
- Lift sliding doors off their tracks for better access.
- Locate the studs in the wall and mark them. It is very important that your mounting screws go into studs and not just drywall.
- Locate the support rails. Depending on the closet system you choose, these will generally be horizontal or vertical metal rails. In any case, make sure that the holes where you will put the screws line up with studs.
- Use a level and a tape measure to get the support rails vertical or horizontal (whichever yours require) and aligned with one another.
- When you have the supports where they should be, mark the hole locations on the wall with a pencil. You may be able to mark right through the mounting holes. Mark the bracket edge location, if you want.
- Mark holes so that you can find both the horizontal and vertical location after you remove the bracket.
- Drill pilot holes in the wall where you have marked. Make them about the same size or a little smaller than the minor diameter (smaller diameter) of the screw thread.
- Install the support rails. Line them up again and drive long screws through the brackets and into the walls.
- Assemble drawers, modular shelves, cabinets, and any other pieces that require assembly before they are hung up. Most closet systems will come with instructions specific to the design.
- Attach the closet pieces to the support rails. Read the manufacturer’s instructions for specific details.
- Secure the shelves, rods, etc. to the support rails or to the walls as required. Here again, secure into the wall studs or, if necessary, use bolts designed for use in drywall.
- Add any finishing touches, such as drawer pulls, hooks, etc.
- Arrange adjustable shelves. For laminate shelves on adjustable pegs, make sure each shelf has four pegs and that all four are pushed in all the way and have the flat side up, supporting the shelf. Screw them in if the peg design requires it.
- Wipe or vacuum up dust and debris from the project.
- Line shelves or drawers, if desired. Shelf liners can keep wooden and laminate shelves looking nicer longer, block moisture and spills, keep things from sliding around or, in the case of metal shelves, take up the space between wires so that smaller objects don’t fall through.
- Move into your new closet.
- This would be a great time to organize the contents of your closet or storage space and throw out what you don’t need.
- The detail of your planning should correspond to the complexity of your project. If all you need is a couple rods and some shelves, a quick sketch should do it.
- Keep your budget in mind throughout the planning process. When you have a basic plan, total up the costs before you head for the store. This is especially important for larger closets: all those little pieces can add up fast!
- If you have a flat expanse of concrete or asphalt at hand, you can use it to help you plan. Take the measurements of the closet walls, and using kid’s sidewalk chalk, draw the wall on the surface, marking the studs and anything relevant. Now you can do a trial layout of the closet components, laying them against the surface as though it were the wall. This will let you see potential problems and likely give you better ideas. You can simply the move the pieces around rather than having to draw them to scale again each time.
- Have another person nearby to hold things while you adjust, mark, and screw things in, and to help with long and heavy items.
- Some closets have access hatches for attics, crawl spaces, or pipes. There’s no reason you can’t put loose objects in front of these (hanging garments, laundry hampers, or shoe racks), but plan permanent fixtures, like built-in shelves, around these openings.
- Not all closet systems need to go in closets. They can also help to create laundry areas, garage, and pantry storage, and they can be combined with cabinets or other enclosed storage.
- Always work safely with tools.
- Make sure that closet systems are designed to take the load and make sure that the support brackets are securely installed into a stud with the recommended number of fasteners and spacing. Then, make sure that shelves and other units are correctly installed on the supports.
- A closet organizer can only do so much. If you have way too much stuff, you’ll need to sort through it and remove items to get the most of your organization system.
Things You’ll Need
- Stud finder
- Drill and drill bits
- Tape measure
- Level, plumb bob, square
- Safety glasses
- Closet organizer system brackets or rails
- Shelves, rods, and other closet organizer components
- Handles, hooks, and door or drawer pulls, as necessary
- Bins, shelf liners, hangers, etc. (optional)
- A hacksaw (for cutting rods and metal shelving) and circular saw (for cutting wood or laminate shelves), if you need to cut any pieces yourself.
- Mounting screws, if they are not included with your closet system. Choose long wood screws if you are mounting the closet system into studs and drywall screws with anchors if there are places you cannot screw into studs.
