In the meantime, you might want to keep reading for some helpful insight on kids and their organizing habits!

Clutter is basically stuff that has no home, right? You can involve your child in the organization process by allowing them to determine storage locations. Remember, your child opens the closet doors, and looks down and sees the floor, and looks UP and sees the hanging bar. Where do you think the stuff in their hands is going to go? ON THE FLOOR!

Involving your children in decisions will empower them. Be sure to be considerate of your child’s developmental level. Younger children forget about objects if they can't see them. Therefore, open containers and exposed shelving will help your kids put away and find objects. Children that are three to five years of age enjoy independently getting dressed. So, use low hanging closet rods, shelves, and baskets that they can reach. Younger school age children may benefit from labels in order to correctly put away objects. There is hope!

And, we are here to help you.

Your children don't need a walk-in closet just because they have piles of clothing, toys and clutter. More space is not always the answer to the problem. The answer is occasional purging of broken and unused items, and most importantly, better use of their space. And this applies whether the space is a reach-in closet, playroom, or any other storage area.

Toys and a playroommessy toys

Toys, books, and more toys! Are you thinking about making sense of the chaos? Organizing your children’s playroom requires two key steps: reviewing the toy and book inventory, as well as making it easier for a child to utilize and live in the environment.

First, inspect your child’s toy and book collection. How many toys and books can your child comfortably enjoy? Keep the rest out of sight since having everything accessible can be over stimulating. Pack the extras away in storage baskets or tubs, and rotate toys when the child seems to be getting bored with the current selection. Keep a few of their very favorite toys and books in their room.

Secondly, how accessible is the existing toy and book supply? Inaccessibility is a primary reason things don't get put away or used. Children can reach lower shelves easier, and hooks hung low are also easier to use. Reserve high spaces for rarely used items or for toys and books on rotation. Drawers should slide in and out easily, and be easily opened and closed by small hands.

Take advantage of our expertise to help make sense of the chaos that is your child's room! Call or visit us today, and we'll help get your family on their way to being neater and more organized!
