Turning Clutter into Organized Chaos
Now that the kids are back in school, the carefree summer days of playing outside are slowly being replaced with homework, after school activities, and earlier bedtimes. But you can help control the chaos by making their rooms organized and clutter-free.
Hanging book shelves not only make it easy to see what books your kids have, but the shelves also create a landscape of color and design with the book covers. Make sure the shelves are easy enough for kids to reach their favorite books. To make reading a little more fun add comfy pillows to sit on with their book of choice in hand.
Remember, this is a kid's room, so the furniture should be for them - oversized adult furniture crowds a room and take up a lot of space in what is usually a smaller bedroom in the house. Bunk beds are a fun and space-saving alternative and give each child a little privacy in their own space.
A lot of kids don't want to come home and sit at a desk after sitting at one all day in school, but an organized, inviting workspace will lead to a more productive learning experience. Make sure there is plenty of light and not a lot of clutter. Add stimulating accessories and color to keep the space from being just another desk for school work.
Even though most of the time it's behind closed doors, the closet truly is the heart of the room. It can be used for so many functions besides just storing clothes, but it needs to be organized. Make sure that everything is visible, whether it's in clear bins or on a shelf, and that everything is accessible when needed. Store less used items on top and rotate as necessary.
