How many of you are frustrated with your ability to get organized in your kids' bedrooms? It seems as if the amount of clothing, accessories, books, and toys they accumulate far surpasses our ability to keep up with all of it! And without clear storage options and expectations that they need to put things where they belong, the kids' bedrooms quickly become out of control messes! So I pulled together these 20 Amazing Organized Kids Bedroom Ideas! Meant to inspire all of us!
Organized Kids Bedroom: Ideas for Organizing Kids Clothing:
One of the best ways to organize a kids closet is to minimize the amount of space dedicated to hanging clothes (especially when they are teens and tweens and would never hang anything up on their own anyway!).
Move the hanging bar up as high as possible to make room for plenty of shelving and storage in the space below! I love this makeover of a kids closet over at Neat and Pretty.
We use the collapsible fabric bins in our own kids' closets to hold underwear and socks- which eliminates the need for dresser drawers, saving a ton of floor space in the bedroom!
Melanie from 40Eighteen swears by this hanging closet organizer to help keep her kids organized and so picking out clothes is a no-brainer in the morning and they can make it down to breakfast on time!
I love this idea as featured over on Apartment Therapy- a chalkboard painted thrifted dresser! (link no longer exists)
Organized Kids Bedroom: Places to Hold All of Their Accessories!
I love this headband and hair clip holder made from a picture frame! (From Mom & Wife) (link no longer exists)
We also tried this for a while…. using stuffed animals as the “stuffing” for bean bag chairs! Thread Riding Hood gives you the instructions and the patterns to make gorgeous ones like she created- or you can find some bean bag chair covers here !
It is such a great way to corral an oversized stuffed animal collection!
I love this creative way of organizing boys baseball hats! (From Jenna Burger) Much better than having them hanging off of the corners of their desks!
How cool are these silverware trays that have been painted, decorated with scrapbook paper and then hung on the wall to hold girls jewelry and accessories? (Tutorial over on Tatertots & Jello) You can find wooden silverware trays here to create your own!
An Organized Kids Bedroom Needs Places for Books!
Kids should be surrounded by books throughout their lives- and until they reach the age that they are downloading everything to their e-reader, you need to have places to store books in their room!
I love this tutorial by Penny Carnival on how to create your own awesome hanging book sling. I love how she hangs it right next to the bed- with a selection of bedtime stories pre-loaded for her child to choose from! (link no longer exists)
How smart and simple is this idea to use Ikea spice racks to create a set of bookshelves on a wall? (Idea from Domestic Simplicity- link no longer exists)
And I love this DIY standing book bin that Audrey from This Little Street created! The printed paper lining? Swoon!
And There's Gotta Be Places to Store the Toys!
Got Legos? How brilliant is this Lego table that just sits on top of three rolling carts with drawers ? And you can flip the Lego tabletop over and use the smooth bottom as a writing table! This is all kinds of awesome! (From Our Wee Family)
Another smart idea is storing wooden puzzle pieces in pencil cases like this ! You can then store the puzzle boards on bookshelves vertically without worrying that all of the puzzle pieces will get dumped out into one giant pile. And it makes it easy to grab a puzzle and go! (From The Navy Stripe)
I love how Samantha from Simply Organized used a wooden curtain rod to organize her daughter's costumes! Now she can see everything, and there's no more digging through a pile and knocking everything onto the floor to get to the one she wants!
And here is another very creative way to store board games– frame them and store the pieces in a baggie on the back! (From Infarrantly Creative)
Beyond Just Being Organized, Here are Some Great Ideas to Make Their Room Unique!
Here's another sweet idea- to make a reading nook out of 2 pallets! (From Kojo Design) And she uses the same hanging bookshelf idea as featured above to hold books!
I love the idea of celebrating their art work with a beautiful art display wall like the one that Kimbo from A Girl and a Glue Gun created! For $5! So much better than tacking everything to the fridge- and allows them to enjoy what they created!
And for your tweens and teens- why not make a collage of their favorite Instagram photos from the school year and mount them in a DIY Instagram frame (courtesy of Tatertots and Jello)! A great way to enjoy some school year memories that don't involve scrolling through your profile!
