5 Small Kids Bedroom Organization Ideas

As a parent, you’re probably well aware of how much stuff your child has. Between mountains of toys and plush animals to piles of clothes, and a little Tasmanian devil tearing through it all every now and again, it doesn’t take long for your child’s room to turn into a colossal mess. This, of course, can make trying to organize their bedroom — and keeping it organized for that matter — a challenge, especially if their bedroom is small. However, with a little creativity, inspiration, and a plan of action, kids’ room organization is possible.

At Doorage, we specialize in providing family-friendly storage solutions that make it easy for busy parents to free up some space in their homes. If you’re feeling overwhelmed about organizing a small kid’s bedroom, you’re in luck! In today’s post, we’re going to share some tips that will help you conquer the challenge, both for their enjoyment and, more importantly, your sanity.

Kids Room Organization Ideas

Before you really dive into the organizing, the best way to start is by reducing the clutter in the room. Chances are there are plenty of toys, books, clothes, and other items that aren’t being used. Downsize it! Having fewer things to begin with will make organizing your child’s bedroom that much easier. Separate everything into piles of items to keep, toss, donate, or put into storage — if your family is still growing, you may want to save some items for your next little one to use.

With Doorage, you can put these unused items into storage without leaving your home. Storage containers are sent to your door for you to pack, and when you’re ready, they will be picked up and put into a safe and secure storage facility until you are ready to have them returned back to you. Once you have reduced some of the clutter, consider these organization ideas for small kids’ bedrooms.

Go Vertical

When it comes to small kid’s bedrooms, every inch of storage counts. Therefore, it is essential to take advantage of the vertical space to add more storage without taking up the entire bedroom floor. Shelves can be hung on the walls for stashing books and certain toys. If space allows, you can invest in a tall wardrobe for more vertical storage options in the room. Depending on the age of your child, incorporating vertical storage into their room gives you more control over what items are harder for them to access and which ones can easily end up strewn across the bedroom floor.

Look for Double-Duty Furniture

Small-space issues can be solved by choosing kid’s bedroom furniture that also serves as additional storage. Especially in a small bedroom, a bed can take up most of the space and make the room feel cramped. Luckily, there are plenty of beds and other furniture that come in all shapes, sizes, styles, and also serve a dual purpose to maximize the space in the room. With a little research, you can find beds that provide a stylish place for your child to sleep while doubling as convenient storage. Some of these include under-bed drawers, shelved headboards, or other convenient storage solutions. For a more cost-effective solution, simply slide some storage bins under their bed.

Tackle the Clothes

It’s clear that clothes can take up quite a bit of space. Folding clothes can take up a lot of valuable space in drawers, so hang them instead. Utilize the clothing rod in your child’s closet. Hang all shirts, pants, jackets, etc. If your child has a lot of clothes and the closet space allows, consider adding a second clothing rod. When you run out of hanging space, put the remaining articles of clothing in clear or labeled storage containers to keep the closet space organized. While the closet is a small section in the bedroom, keeping it organized will go a long way toward making the room feel less busy or cluttered.

Use One Wall for Storage and Play

If possible, it can be helpful to reorganize your child’s bedroom so that you can dedicate a whole wall for storage and a play area. This is particularly helpful for kids that are still well in the toy stage or even older children who need a spot to study and do homework. If your child has a wall in their bedroom with no doors or a window, try rearranging everything in a way that dedicates that wall and the surrounding area mainly for storage. If there isn’t a whole wall in their bedroom, find the wall that is the largest and start there instead. When the wall and area are defined, you can use cube storage shelves or standard wall shelves to create plenty of storage while still allowing room for play.

Keep the Layout Simple

It can be incredibly easy to overthink and overdesign your child’s room when reorganizing everything. It is important to remember who you are designing the room for, though. Picture the room for your child’s eye level and ensure that certain books, clothes, and toys that are within reach — maybe keep those louder, obnoxious toys stored higher for more controlled use. Small touches like removing closet doors, keeping storage containers on or near the floor, and lowering clothing rods will make the room all the more accessible for your child, which can help you teach them the virtues and values of keeping a tidy bedroom.

Don’t let a messy, unorganized kids bedroom overwhelm you. With just a few simple steps and adjustments, you can organize your kid’s room and maximize the available space.

Hassle-free, convenient affordable…

Hassle-free, convenient and affordable. I cannot recommend Doorage enough. Not only do they offer a great service that someone should have thought of sooner, but they are also very accommodating with it. And most importantly, my stuff was picked up when I wanted it to be, stored safely and returned when I needed it to be.

Great service, I’m spreading the word…

Set up pick up for my college student. Arrived on time, helped with odd items and hauled away in 30 minutes. Friendly, helpful and fair. Saved me time, money and the inconvenience of buying boxes, finding storage, and hauling it to the location from dorm room.

In August, I’ll set up delivery to dorm room without me picking up a thing. Great service, I’m spreading the word.

They were fast, considerate, careful…

I moved my Mom in with me and my family. She didn’t want to get rid of anything but we don’t have room for her stuff at my house so we looked into storage spaces and found Doorage.

First they came out with bins and clothing boxes. We spent the next couple of days filling the bins [and] boxes.

Doorage returned on a Sunday, the only day I was available. They took the boxes and bins, and shrink wrapped all the furniture, put protective packaging around the more important furniture, and hauled it all away.

They were fast, considerate, careful, polite, respectful and friendly. They joked around with my Mom yet were still very professional.

On top of all that, they were a little cheaper for the space we needed, and the money I saved on a Uhaul and days off of work, not to mention I barely lifted a finger in the whole ordeal, I would definitely recommend Doorage to absolutely anyone looking for storage.

Crazy cheap compared to the competition…

Easily One of the Best Moving Experiences I’ve Ever Had

I contacted Doorage to help me store my things temporarily while I was away for the summer. From pickup to final drop-off, everything was a breeze. Their eco bins save you the trouble of worrying about buying boxes and they break down (to save you money!) or wrap up any big items you might have.

I thought the website portal was very useful too. It’s an easy way to schedule pick-ups and deliveries and remember all the stuff you tossed into storage. Anytime I had a question or an issue I received a prompt response and solution to the problem! Nothing ever felt like a hassle.

Doorage is a great company to work with. I never felt like I was getting ripped off, and in fact many times the movers helped save me money. Mike and Dean are legit and made sure everything was handled smoothly and professionally! By the way, the ultimate costs ended up being crazy cheap compared to the competition. Really can’t recommend Doorage enough.

It was so quick and easy…

Doorage is a great company with great employees. They gave me a window of 7-1 and came shortly after 7 and left before 9. It was so quick and easy. They provided all the materials and took care of all the large items I had selected and even some that I forgot to add to my move. Sam was very great in helping with my billing. I am happy I selected them as the service has been fantastic.

Very professional and trustworthy…

We moved from a rental apartment to a new condo but had a gap of time before we could move into our new home.  Doorage was the perfect solution to our problem!  They dropped off bins and wardrobe boxes as scheduled.  Then, of course we underestimated how much stuff we had and they kindly dropped off more bins.  No problem!

Then they picked up all our stuff when we scheduled them, stored it and returned it on the day we moved in.  They were on-time, efficient, and worked well with both buildings to make it a smooth transition.  We didn’t have to hire movers (twice!) and find a storage unit for a short period of time.  It’s a brilliant solution for “gap coverage.”

Plus, Doorage was great to work with!  Very professional and trustworthy.  And Dean was awesome!  Efficient, friendly, and strong 🙂

Doorage definitely made a very stressful time much less stressful.  I would highly recommend Doorage to solve your storage problems!

It saved us so much time and energy…

I recently moved in with my girlfriend and we had a bunch of extra furniture and misc. stuff that we no longer had space for.  I saw an ad on Facebook for Doorage and gave them a call.  Basically you schedule a pickup date, then they come and wrap and pack all your stuff for you, put it on their bright pink trucks, and bring it to their warehouse to store until you are ready to get it delivered back.  It saved us so much time and energy not having to pick and move the stuff to a storage facility ourselves.  We had some extremely fragile stuff including an expensive glass table and I was thoroughly impressed with their team and how they packed and moved everything with such great care!  It was snowy and wet that day and the crew made sure to wear booties and put big drop clothes down to protect all of our carpet and hardwood without us even asking!  The best thing is that they only charge you for the exact square footage of your items, which after doing some research turned out to be so much cheaper that renting a big storage unit and not utilizing all the space.  And the last storage unit I rented my dresser got water damaged and it was such a pain and hassle to get reimbursed.  I’ve already told all my friends and family about Doorage and would recommend them to anyone.  Also they donate some of their profits to breast cancer research and community programs which is awesome!

I can’t believe how easy Doorage made this process…

Amazing Customer service! We needed to have a gigantic granite dining table and 6 matching chairs delivered and stored for a few months. I contacted Doorage initially for just a quote and called them on a Saturday to schedule the big move. I was worried because we had to have this extremely heavy table moved within a few days but Doorage was able to schedule us for the following Monday!

I can’t believe how easy Doorage made this process that my husband and I had been dreading! They brought with them all the necessary packaging supplies for a fair price and did an amazing job making sure our ridiculously heavy table was safely wrapped. They quickly and efficiently were able to get this gigantic dining table down the front porch steps! Everybody I talked to, starting from the initial phone call to all the movers were so pleasant and professional. We thought they must have been in business for a long time because of their extensive knowledge and expertise and were surprised to learn they are a newer company!

We are so thankful for their services and feel very confident that our possessions are being well taken care of considering how well each piece was taken care of at pick up! Definitely will continue to use for our storage needs!
