Storage Tips for Children Bedrooms
Who knew something as small and adorable as a baby came with so much stuff? And quite often their room, your nursery, is the smallest room in the house.
Simple storage for children’s bedrooms are essential. It begins with needing quick and easy access to baby’s nappies, powder, soft toys and comforters, feeding bottles and evolves into needing somewhere safe to store their cuddly soft toys, games, books, dressing up outfits and toys. You have to put it all somewhere!
Fear not, here are some top tips to help.
- Functionality over cuteness
Of course, nursery storage needs to look cute, but the first rule is it must be functional. There’s little point having a storage box if you have so much to put in it that you can’t close the lid! If you plan to use your storage basket or storage bag for your baby’s nappies, powder and creams, you’ll be needing to use it many times each day and night. Open top storage is a good idea. After all, you don’t want to be trying to open a lidded storage box at 3am when you’re bleary-eyed. Worse still if you have twins (or more) and have to guess whose box is whose! Make it easy for yourself.
- Think versatility
As your bundle of joy grows into a child you’ll want to re-use and recycle your storage. Personalised storage baskets and personalised storage bags are a great idea. Go for simple designs that will complement what you’ll buy for your child over the first few years. After all, storage with cute baby things on them have a limited shelf life. They’ll soon outgrow it. You need something all-purpose and adaptable.
- Storage size matters
Just as you want to make your storage versatile, it needs to be a size where it will be useful as your baby’s needs grow. Look at what you want to use it for now and think bigger! If you have the space, choose a large storage basket or storage bag.
- Personalise it
We listen to lots of parents and those with twins (and more) tell us that personalised storage is an absolute must. Sometimes it’s important to separate their nappies, powders, creams and even muslins and blankets. And storage with their name on means that they can own it, and have something to keep their toys and teddies in. Storage bags are really flexible and can be used for blankets, toys, soft toys, dressing up clothes and much more.
