Let’s face it – kids’ rooms easily become cluttered and crowded with toys, clothes, books, and other items. No matter how hard you try, it can be extremely difficult to keep their room tidy and organized. Even if you have a toy chest or box  for them to place their belongings in once playtime is over with, they oftentimes remain on the floor. Whether you are dealing with toddlers or teens, it is important to engrain them with habits that will help them stay organized and keep their room nice and tidy.

No matter their age, kids can be good organizers, as long as you give them the right tools and storage options. By teaching your kids how to stay organized beginning at an early age, you will be providing them with the skills they need to stay organized throughout their lifetime. It is also important to keep in mind that kids learn by example, meaning that if you aren’t organized, why would they follow suit? Kids may react to their parents’ messiness in different ways and the best way to ensure they don’t become a bigger slob than you are is to steer them in the right direction before it’s too late.

There is a lot of research that suggests our child’s behavioral patterns, including organizational skills, are set by the age of three. So while you may not think they need to learn how to clean up after themselves until they are a bit older, this could be detrimental to their development and ability to keep their room and surrounding clean and organized. Mom’s Bunk House offers a wide range of storage solutions and other options that will help your kids get – and stay – organized. From a chest of drawers to a fun bookcase, be sure and check out our inventory and see what items you think will help your kiddos get organized.

Here are a few smart and useful tips to help you organize your kid’s bedroom:

  • Go through your child’s belongings at least once a month. By going through all the toys, clothes, books, and other knickknacks that are in your child’s room once a month, you are lessening the chance of the space getting filled with unused and unwanted items. Store out-of-season clothing and toys elsewhere, such as in a separate toy chest or under-the-bed storage in order to keep things nice and tidy.
  • Involve your child in the decluttering process. By involving your child in the organization and decluttering process, you are giving them the tools they need to keep their rooms clean long-term. This is also a great chance for you to teach them how important it is to share – as you can donate toys and clothes they are no longer using to children who are less fortunate.
  • Make sure toys and books are accessible. Bring in a bookshelf or two and place them near reading spots in order to ensure your child can find these items when they need. One of the ways a child’s room can get messy is when they are looking for something they cannot find. By organizing the room with your child, they should remember where everything is and will have an easier time when they are looking for a particular book or toy.
  • Categorize toys. Adopt a system for categorizing and organizing your child’s toys. It may be a good idea to divide them into several categories, such as outside and inside. Try to keep similar items together so your child has an easier time finding them.
  • Keep a toy box in the family room. Chances are your child isn’t only playing with their toys when in their room, which is why it is a good idea to have a toy box in a central location. This will make clean up time much, much easier.

Helping your child get and keep their room organized and clean can be quite a battle, but it should be a little easier with the help of the above tips. If you have any questions or would like to check out our selection or storage furniture, please do not hesitate to contact us at Mom’s Bunk House.
