As an adult, we all know how challenging it is to organize our own drawer wardrobe. However, keeping your kid’s closet organized can prove to be a bigger challenge, especially if your kids have a lot of apparel. To help you out, read this short guide and discover handy tricks on how to remove the clutter from your little one’s closet.
- Use colors for categorizing their apparel
A lot of kids learn through visuals. By using multi-colored drawers, your kids can determine which goes where. Even before they learn how to read, they will be able to know that underwear should be placed in the blue drawer, their pajamas in the pink one; socks go in red, and so on.
- Make sure that they can easily reach their apparel
Avoid using closets that are too large and deep. But if you can’t really replace his storage space immediately, make sure that the apparel that he frequently uses is within immediate reach.
- Choose a storage space that grows
Go for repositionable closets to accommodate bigger pieces of apparel. You should also add a slide-out drawer and clothes rod in the closet for out of season apparel.
- Make it easier for your kids to organize their things
If your kids are sharing closets, you should label baskets and storage drawers with their names so that they can tell which one is which.
- Use a glass case for their shoes
This will make it easier for them to see their shoe collection. If you don’t have any available glass case, another option is to refurbish an old ladder. Not only will it organize their footwear, but it can also add some design to their room. Both glass case and ladder can only accommodate few pair of shoes at a time, so only showcase those that are in season.
- Sell and donate unused clothing
An important stage in removing the clutter in your home is to let go the things that you do not need. Do they have any clothes that are too small for them? Why not give them to your immediate family member or donate them to the Salvation Army? Keep in mind that clothes serve their purpose when they are worn and not when they are hidden in the closet. After removing the clutter from your home, you will surely feel a liberating feeling and your kid’s room will look cleaner.
