Finding Storage Solutions For Kids Rooms

There is a big difference between children's furniture today and what used to be just cheap imitations of adult furniture. Since children's bedrooms are often used as playrooms and studies, as well as places to sleep, the market has demanded some changes. Children's furniture is now made in a variety of styles that make more creative use of space. With this multi-functionality also comes an increase in the amount of stuff that collects and needs to be stored. Children today have more "stuff" than ever before, and keeping everything organized and out of the way is quite a challenge to even the most organized parents. Kids' furniture to the rescue! Furniture stores, especially online furniture stores, offer a huge range of storage options that allow you to choose just the right option for your uniquely-cluttered kid's room.

The first thing you need to do is to find usable space that is being wasted. In a child's room this space is high up. Put up shelves to keep those souvenirs and other "non-play" knickknacks out of the way and displayed nicely. This will almost always instantly free up the tops of dressers. These shelves can even border the entire room. How about that stuffed animal hammock? Stretch it across the ceiling, hung up high in a corner, to store all those plush county fair prized animals.

Another way to use wasted space is to find furniture that has two functions. Every children's furniture store has a toy box that has a cushioned, couch-like bench seat. Even those square cube chairs around the kid's table can store art supplies for your budding little artists. How many times has the area underneath your child's bed been a warehouse for forgotten toys and the occasional dirty sock? How about pull-out drawers instead? A shoe rack on the back of the closet door is cheap and very easy to hang. They're usually clear plastic and don't have to always store shoes. Trucks, dolls, or art supplies can all fit nicely into one of these racks.

If you are having a hard time finding that precious "wasted" space to convert into storage space, consider creating space. Yes, create your own. A loft bed is an ideal way to add a large amount of space to any room. The empty space created by raising the bed can be used as storage, play or even for a desk. As an additional benefit, most kids enjoy the uniqueness of sleeping closer to the ceiling; it gives a kid an added perception of the world that they don't often have.

And the last way to make more space in your child's bedroom is simply just to better arrange the existing space that is already there. If the bookshelves are stuffed with toys or other items that aren't books, buy some square baskets, or those colored cardboard boxes. Put those on the shelves and have your child organize their stuff in the baskets. It will not only give them a little more space, it will make the whole room look tidier and a bit nicer.

Muck Boots in the Snow Fort
My kids love to play outside in the winter, especially when there is ten feet of snow. But, I dont know of any mother that has had an easy time finding quality winter boots for their kids.

Stairway Bunk Beds
Over the past few years, Ive been asked many times about stairway bunk beds, or bunk beds that have stairs instead of a ladder to get to the top bunk. Having stairs instead of a ladder has one major advantage, safety. If you are worried about your kids actually climbing a ladder and whether or not they can handle it, especially when you cant be with them every second, and believe me it only takes one second of not paying attention for a child to get hurt, then stairs is probably for...

Why You Should Consider Purchasing A Metal Bunk Bed
When I think of metal bunk beds, I think of my dorm room back in college. My roommate and I had square tubular metal beds that we were able to stack one on top of the other. These beds had no style to them, they were square steel tubes and the frames were welded together so that everything was perfectly square. I guess it fit right in with the rest of the room decor; we had cinder block walls and poured concrete for the floor and ceiling. The only thing differentiating it from a jail cell was...
