Have you ever walked into your child’s room and the room looked like a tornado hit it. This is no surprise. Kids rooms are often the most destroyed rooms in many households because there is a lack of focus, organization and responsibility. Fortunately, your kid’s room does not always have to look like that. Here are a few tips that can help you to make your kid’s rooms more functional.
Ensure There is Proper Storage Space
One of the best ways to ensure that your child’s room remains as functional and clean as possible is to ensure there is proper storage space. You cannot expect your child to clean up their toys if they have nowhere to store them. Look for storage solutions that help provide a space for the different types of items that are stored in your child’s room, such as a bookshelf for their books and toys bins to sort different toys.
Create a Creative Corner
Consider creating a creative corner in your child’s room to increase functionality. A creative corner gives your child the space they need to be creative. Consider putting in a child’s sized table where they can do art, or bean bag chairs where they can read. This gives them the space they need to get creative and helps to keep the area clutter-free.
Make the Space Conducive for Sleeping
One of the biggest mistakes parents make when designing a kid’s room is not making the space conducive for sleeping. Instead, they set the space up for playing. Your child needs to sleep in their room, so select wall colors that are not overstimulating, and ensure their furniture is comfortable and cozy. If your child is not sleeping well, it may be time to get back to basics, remove clutter, and go for a more simplistic design.
Teach Your Kids to Clean
The last tip to help increase the functionality in your kid’s rooms is to teach your kids to clean. Before pulling a new toy out, teach your kids to put their other toys away. This helps to ensure there is space for what they are trying to play with, and helps to decrease the amount of clutter out at any given time. Teach fun songs or activities to help make clean up time fun rather than a chore.
