Kids’ Room Ideas for the Creative Sprit: Storage

by Star Furniture on September 25, 2014

Extra storage space is a must for most families, especially in the kids’ room!  But instead of hauling in an over-sized cabinet that may not fit the size or match the theme of your room, you can find storage space that’s not only visually appealing, but practical and useful as well.  A beautifully crafted armoire or stand-up mirrors that feature extra compartments are great ways to add style and maximize your living space.  You may even find space cleverly hidden in some dressers and chairs.

There was a time when shoving items under the bed seemed like an ideal way to temporarily hide unwanted clutter.  But as tempting as that is, it causes more confusion to your belongings and runs a high risk of certain items never being seen again, or at the least not being used for a very long time. But, these adorable storage beds provide a more organized alternative. Whether its toys, books or seasonal clothing, built-in bed storage is a resourceful way to declutter your space.

Once you have the storage space, how do you make sure it’s used every day?  One of the best ways to do this is keeping things at your child’s height level.  Storage units, benches and coat racks will all be used more if kids can get to them easily.
