How to Maximise storage in your Child’s Bedroom

This is a sponsored post with Cleverclicker

Children – they are forever leaving their toys out, meaning that Mum and Dad are always the ones who have to tidy up after them. Plus, if your child has quite a small size bedroom, you may find that there simply isn’t enough room to put away their extensive collection of toys – resulting in your child’s bedroom looking constantly cluttered as well as messy. Luckily, due to the demand for versatile storage in the home, there are actually plenty of ways that you can make the most of any bedroom size – here are a few of our favourite storage ideas:

Choose Multi-Purpose Furniture
If space is limited in your child’s bedroom then one way to really maximise the size of the room is through choosing multi-purpose furniture. Furniture that serves a number of purposes can be anything from beds that feature underneath drawers for storage or super versatile camp beds that also have pull out desks and chairs. The benefit of multi-purpose children’s bedroom furniture is that it takes up less space than having separate pieces of furniture dotted around the room.

Make the Most of Floor Space
Do you find that you are struggling to fit all of your child’s furniture and essentials into the same room? One way of easily fitting everything into the room is to take the bed away from the floor by investing in a Steens for kids mid sleeper bed. Unlike normal bedframes, high sleeper beds and mid sleeper beds are presented on tall frames – so that the space underneath is available to add extra furniture or to simply leave free so that your kids have plenty of play space.

Build your own storage
Whether it’s a small box room or an awkward shaped room, you may find that you struggle to find furniture that will easily fit into your child’s bedroom. One way that you can guarantee effective storage for any small or fussy shaped room is through building your own furniture. Building your own storage furniture such as toy boxes, storage shelves or cupboards allows you to customise the furniture to suit the exact size and dimensions of your child’s bedroom. For DIY inspiration, why not check out home design blogs, Pinterest also has some great ideas!

Yup, nice idea Helen. Kids bedrooms can become a big mess and having extra storage space like this saves a lot of room. Also getting shelving to put small toys on is also good as this means no small toys laying on the floor!! :)

Appreciate the post
