Space Saving Ideas for Kids’ Rooms


As your child gets older, you may notice that they are accumulating more and more things. This can make space management very difficult. Between toys, clothes and books, things can get pretty cluttered. One of the most important aspects is helping your child understand how to keep their room orderly. You want to help your child keep a tidy and spacious room. Along with getting the right furniture, one of the best ways to do that is to allow your child to help in choosing the different pieces and accessories of their room.


This article describes a few options that can save a ton of space in your child’s bedroom. Unlike adults, there a variety of bed types that makes space management easy. We want to help you make the best decision for you and your child.

 

Bed Types

The type of bed you choose can really save a ton of space in your child’s bed. Below, we have listed the top four space-saving beds.

Bunk Beds

By utilizing the vertical space, bunk beds can provide you two beds with the space required for one. This is ideal if you have multiple children in a room. Kids will also love climbing on the top bunk. We just recommend that you set rules so no one gets hurt. If your child wants a bigger bed, you can find a number of twin over full bunk beds too.

Captain’s Beds

Captain’s beds are the type of beds that have drawers below the mattress. These drawers are great for storing toys, clothes and different odds-and-ends that normally end up on your child’s floor.

Trundle Beds

Trundle beds are great if your child has a friend stay over a lot. These are the type of beds that have a pull-out bed directly under them. You can also get pop-up trundle beds that allow you to not only pull the bed out, but elevate it so it is closer to the same level as the bed.

Loft Beds

Loft beds are similar to a bunk bed in that you utilize the vertical space in the room. The difference is instead of a lower bed below, you have space for a desk, chest of drawers, futon, etc.

 

Utilizing Wall Space

A great way to create more space in any room is to utilize the wall space. Hanging shelves, for example, is a great way to display trophies, specialty toys or even awards. Hooks can also be used for bags, coats and backpacks.

Bedroom Organizers

Use bedroom organizers such as totes and plastic bins where kids can store their things in a single place. These can be stored under the bed or in closets. Some bedroom organizers can be displayed in the room as well.
