Children are known to be mess-makers, and cleaning their room seems to be a never-ending process. However, there is still hope. All you need to do is structure an effective organizing plan involving the kids. In addition, the integration of functional storage containers can also help you successfully accomplish your goal.
Plastic Tubs: These are simple, economical, and fairly simple for children to use. But what you save in money you pay for in visual appeal! These are a good option if your child has a large closet that these can be stored in. Pros: Cheap, customizable, organized (if you purchase a couple with smaller sized ones for accessories) Cons: May not last as long, not visually appealing. Note: tub options do not allow you to hang those princess dresses.
All the organizational products in the world won't keep you organized. Setting things up in a practical way should always be on your mind while you're organizing. Here's an example; Some people really enjoy having a changing station or changing table in the nursery. However, an overwhelming percentage of people who buy them, never use them. How could something that you'll use several times a day that stores all of your related baby items never get used? Location, location, location! Most people do not have the nursery right off of their living room, where they'll spend most of their time. So, they end up using a changing pad instead. The lesson here is that being expensive or seeming like a great idea means nothing if it's not convenient to use.
Kids rooms are almost always cluttered, and there is not always a lot of space in a kids room to store things. There are many organizers available, but why not consider a storage bench for your child. Think about where kids spend most of their time in their room. If they are not sleeping, they are playing on the floor. A bench in your child's room will give them a spot to sit and read, play or even do a puzzle. When they have friends over they can even sit on the bench and talk. All of this is great considering inside the bench are toys, books, games, you name it. You will no longer have to walk into your kids room thinking a tornado went through. Not only that but it will add a nice look to a room just as it would yours.
The next thing you need to consider is your decor. People often make the mistake of purchasing a piece of furniture that does not quite flow with its surrounding. Remember though, not all furniture in a room has to be the same exact style. Use your senses to make a decision. Sometimes furniture like benches do well at standing out a little bit in a room, while other times depending on the situation, a piece just needs to fit in and not be noticed or stand out. Remember that these are pieces of furniture and come in just about every style you could imagine, from all varieties of wood, to metal, or having cushions on top. The selection is nearly endless.
