10 Ideas For The Most Organized Kids Closet

When your family contains children, organizing your home could be a full time job. They don’t tell you how many things come along with the addition of kids to your home but you soon find out. You start with all the baby paraphernalia like diapers and blankets and pacifiers. This morphs into board books and light up toys. Then you move to dollhouses and dinosaurs and before you know it, you’re stepping on Legos in the dark. With all the kids toys cluttering up the house, it’s easy to prioritize the playroom when it comes to organization because that’s what you see every day. However, what about when you go to find that pair of sneakers in your child’s closet? You’ll probably find wrinkled clothing, forgotten toys and lost library books instead. Rather than arming yourself each time you venture through that closet door, take a look at these 10 ideas for the most organized kids closet to help you tame the mess.

You don’t have to be crafty to make this happen but it would certainly be a cheap DIY! Get some patterned paper and make little labels that hang on the clothes bar. This will divide clothes by size which is especially helpful for babies with their abundance of clothes. And if you aren’t into DIY, you can easily find printable options on Pinterest.

Adults aren’t the only ones with too many shoes. In fact, babies might give us a run for our money there!

Then when you need that adorable pair of Mary Janes, you won’t make a mess looking for them.

Instead of a dresser, put a Kallax shelving unit from IKEA in your kid’s closet. Whether you use it to store clothes and shoes or books and toys, it’s a great way to make things accessible to little ones, allowing them more responsibility.

If there is room in your child’s closet, you might consider buying an organizing system for the space instead of building your own. You can opt for true shoe storage, built in drawers and any variations of shelves and rods that suit your needs. This works especially well for older children that have the ability to keep things organized themselves. Just give them the opportunity.

No matter what kinds of shelving you have in your child’s closet, small storage is essential for a truly organized space. To keep things clean and tidy on the eyes, opt for neutral colored pieces like baskets and fabric boxes. These will help balance all the color you’ll get from your kid’s clothes.
