Like us. We live in a charming but small house without a basement that I lovingly call the Blue Cottage.
There never seems to be enough storage in a kid’s room for all the toys, collections, trophies, and clothes, right?
Let’s just assume you also have limited space to work with.
Then you’ll enjoy this post of how I maximize storage in Landon’s room.
You can’t be organized and have everything in its place if you don’t first add some storage solutions.
5 Easy Ways to Add Storage to Your Kid’s Room
1. Inexpensive, Stackable Storage Containers
2. Storage On The Door
I have been looking for a way to display the many medals and ribbons Landon received over the years and decided against hanging them on a big pin board because there is already enough on the walls.
I like how they are now hanging on a removable hook, with a onesie he wore when he was two years old.
Our windows are all very low, which presents some decorating challenges, but this TV stand is perfect (and only cost me $32.)
If Landon’s LEGO collection wouldn’t be so big, I could add a bench cushion to it to create extra seating.
To add more storage, I combined it with a vintage crate and two new white crates from HomeGoods.
I want to eventually paint that yellowish table either white or orange because that yellow doesn’t work in his room that well.
I added two more of those white crates to his book shelf to break up the display of his many books.
Having four of these crates also lets me create all kind of other storage combinations in the future.
5. Storage for Tiny Toys and Collections
I brought it back from Germany many, many years ago with my childhood dog’s tags and other tiny thing, and now Landon’s little items found a home.
This is a similar storage solution I showed you in a previous post for Landon’s car collection:
6. Mason Jars Storage
Mason jars are such great tool for storage solutions. Since they come in all kinds of sizes, and several colors, you can find which ones work best for storing little toys and LEGOS, etc.
We use mason jars in our kitchen every day — here is how — and I’m using blue mason jar on L’s desk to hold pencils and pens, drum sticks, and other little items.
How do you store all of your kid’s things?
Pin for later!
