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.
When it comes to decor, choose a box that has painted on decor with a beautiful finish rather than stickers because later on the adhesive weakens and there is a danger that one of the kids will eat the sticker when they peel from the box. Buy age appropriate storage boxes for kids to be sure that your child is using the right product for his age. That shouldn't be hard since these days most manufacturers put that information on their labels.
The word kids and toys are synonym with one another. Where ever there are kids around, you can find a trail of toys scattered all over the place. As with all good homes, there should be a place for everything so that the home is maintained in good order. If there is easy access for kids to store away their things, as a parent you will have more chance in teaching your kids to pack up after themselves.
Before decorating your children's shared bedroom, talk to each child individually about their favorite colors, decorating ideas, and plans for the room. Discuss various kid's storage options and let your children help decide ways to store their things to make cleaning up easy. Also find out from each child what they think their sibling will want the room to look like and discuss compromises they may both like.
