No-Fail Kid-Friendly Storage Solutions

Whether you’re singing the clean-up song with your toddlers or attempting to tame your teens’ overflowing closets, kid-friendly storage solutions are must-haves for a happy family. While your little ones will love colorful slide-out baskets, tougher-to-please teens require more versatile, heavy-duty storage solutions. Here, how to better organize your home and closets, no matter the age of your helpers.

For Your Little Ones: Bins and Baskets Galore
When it comes to the 5-and-unders crowd, easy-to-access open storage options are your best bet, especially if you’re trying to organize your playroom. Opt for open cubbies (at their height!) with toys organized in multiple slide-out baskets. Toss in a few large plastic bins for oddly-shaped items like stuffed animals, balls and sports equipment, and even dress-up clothes. Inside your children’s closets, hang clothes at their height, add a few cloth hampers, and use out-of-reach closed storage for out-of-season clothing and not-right-now toys and games.

For Kids and Tweens: Built-in Workspaces and Streamlined Closets
As your children get older, they’ll frequently have hands-on projects and homework to do, and they’ll also want a special space to display their many achievements (especially if you’re homeschooling!). Level up with kid-friendly storage 2.0: built-in workspaces complete with desktops, closed cabinetry for school supplies, and open shelving for books, art, photos, and more. Make room for their growing wardrobe with double and triple-hang clothing racks and even built-in dressers, slide-out baskets, and shoe racks.

For Your Teens: The Murphy Bed and More
Got tricky teenagers on your hands? The key is to choose multifunctional big kid-friendly storage solutions they’ll actually enjoy using. Give them the coolest bedroom on the block with the foldaway Murphy bed, which makes clean-up as easy as a flick of the wrist and allows for more bedroom space. Help your fashionista organize her never-ending collection of shoes, purses, and accessories with stylish shoe racks and pull-out drawers and hangers. For your gentleman-in-training, opt for high-quality hangers for dress shirts and built-in dressers and shelving for cologne, hats, and foldables like t-shirts and jeans.
