Attention parents!  School is out and many camps and activities are canceled, why not take advantage of the extra time your kids have by getting their closet organized?  Organizing now will pay off later when things get back to normal, and you’re running from sporting events to piano lessons and everywhere in between. No, your kids aren’t going to be excited about this project, but you will be! After all, isn’t life better when everything has its place? 

Turbo Powered Kid Storage

American Girl Closet 2Whether you have a baby, a toddler, or a teenager, kids have a lot of stuff and, often, a small closet!  A custom closet system is an ideal solution because it allows you to maximize space and is flexible for the growing needs of your child.  With careful planning, you will get a return on your investment that will last for years.

Closet features to help stay organized include:

  • Adjustable shelving at various heights
  • Pull-down rods for seasonal and other seldomly used items
  • Triple hanging rods are great for younger kid’s clothes or shorter items.
  • Drawers that are low enough for younger children to reach
  • Drawer inserts for smaller things such as undergarments, socks, and accessories
  • Open shelving for items that are needed at a moments notice
  • Maximize vertical space by storing things up high such as off-season and clothes that don’t fit

 

Creative Kids’ Room Storage

Kids’ rooms can look cluttered on a good day.  Think about adding creative storage solutions that can make closet organization easy, even for a toddler!  Adding pull-out baskets for dolls, legos, and stuffed animals are extremely helpful because they are easy to access, and the size can be customized to your child’s needs.  Strategically placed hooks are perfect for hanging dance, soccer, or piano bags.  Ask your child how and where they would like their favorite belongings to go.  You might be surprised by their eagerness to put things away when they had a say in the decision.

You’ve Organized, Now Here’s How to Keep it That Way

Luckily, children love routine. When they know where everything is, they’re more likely to get dressed quicker and easier and put things where they belong.  Whether your kids are young or old, teaching them these tips to staying organized will make saying “go clean your room” less stressful.

  • A closet with a combination of hanging, drawers, shelving, and baskets is key.  This organizational assortment makes it much easier for your child to see where items belong and access them.
  • Are you ever late for a sporting activity and your child can’t find their equipment?  Designated baskets are a quick and easy way to grab and go, especially if you label them!
  • Encourage your child to be part of the process.  Letting them choose where things go and even let them decorate!  This sense of ownership can increase their motivation to stay tidy.  
  • An organized closet reduces distractions, saves time, and reduces stress.  Now that’s a recipe for a good night’s sleep!

Tip!: Create the habit of having your child pick their clothes and anything needed for their activities the night before. It’s a great way to prevent unnecessary stress.
