Organizing your Kids’ Bedroom Closets

Organizing your kids’ bedroom closets can be a daunting task, but it’s a necessary one to ensure that their space is clutter-free and functional. A well-organized closet can also help your child to find their clothes and toys easily and encourage them to be more independent. Here are some tips for organizing your kids’ bedroom closets.

Steps for Organizing your Kids’ Bedroom Closets

Declutter: The first step to organizing your kids’ closets is to declutter. Go through their clothes and toys and get rid of anything that is no longer needed, doesn’t fit, or is broken. This can be a good opportunity to involve your child and teach them the importance of letting go of items they no longer need. You can also consider donating gently used items to charity.

Create a Plan: Before diving in, it’s important to create a plan for your kids’ closet organization. Think about how your child uses their closet and what they need access to on a daily basis. You can draw up a simple sketch or create a list of items that you want to store in the closet.

Use Space Efficiently: Maximizing space in a closet is key. Use hanging organizers to store shoes, clothes, and other accessories. Shelves and cubbies can be used for toys and books. You can also install a second hanging rod to double the hanging space for their small clothes.

Label Everything: Labeling is an effective way to keep your kids’ closet organized. Label bins or baskets with the contents, so your child knows where everything belongs. You can also use pictures for younger children who can’t read yet.

Make it Easy to Reach: Make sure that everything in your kids’ closet is easy to reach. Use lower shelves and cubbies for toys, so your child can easily access them. Keep frequently used items like shoes and jackets at eye level.

Teach Your Child: Once you’ve organized the closet, take some time to teach your child how to keep it tidy. Encourage them to put things back where they found them and explain why it’s important to keep their closet organized. You can also make it fun by creating a reward system for keeping the closet clean.

Regularly Re-organize: Organizing your kids’ closet is not a one-time event. As your child grows and their needs change, their closet will need to be re-organized. Schedule time seasonally, or every six months to go through the closet, declutter, and re-organize as needed.

Don’t neglect organizing your kids’ bedroom closets.  It is an important task that can help keep their space functional and clutter-free. Decluttering, creating a plan, using space efficiently, labeling, making everything easy to reach, teaching your child, and regularly re-organizing can all contribute to a well-organized closet and a more organized child. By following these tips, you can create a space that your child will love and enjoy using.

Here’s to organizing your kids’ bedroom closets and RESETTING your life!
