How often do you find yourself telling your children to tidy their bedroom? Why is it that children seem to continuously manage to create a bomb site of their room?
Is it because they pull out every toy under the sun? Or could it be because they never put dirty clothes in the laundry or clean ones in the wardrobe? Well, all these things are factors, but perhaps the main reason behind messy rooms is a lack of storage.
As adults, we find all sorts of nooks and crannies to stash things away making it difficult to find them again! Children always need access to their clothes, toys, books, homework, pens, computer and so on, so they find it easier just to leave it where it is.
With innovative storage solutions, you could make it a whole lot easier for your child to tidy up after themselves and you to keep on top of the mess.
Kids’ storage should be colourful, fun and useful. If your child’s bedroom is packed full of dull brown and grey drawers or wardrobes, they won’t engage with it. Just picture the bedroom of a three year old – I imagine serious and dark furniture isn’t what first springs to mind.
By incorporating bright colours into the room, you’ll immediately make it more interesting and engaging. Of course, colour alone isn’t going to lead to a tidy bedroom. When installing furniture in a kid’s bedroom it needs to be safe and durable. Some key things to look out for include rounded edges, the construction material and just how much storage it really offers.
There are loads of pieces of furniture you’ll need to make up a kid’s bedroom, including the bed itself, wardrobes, drawers, desks, study units, shelving and so on. With this in mind, many parents avoid going down this route for the fear that kitting out a bedroom packed with kids’ furniture will cost an arm and a leg.
Fortunately, that’s no longer the case, as it is possible to get stylish pieces for less than you think. For example, Kidspace furniture available at Woolworths.co.uk manages to incorporate colour, style, durability and remain at a relatively low price – so why not take a look today?
