With the holidays coming up, it’s the perfect time to add some extra storage to your kid’s room to help them contain their new favorite things. Learn how to maximize storage in kids’ bedrooms large or small with these practical, multi-purpose furniture ideas.
Idea #1: Storage cubbies
Smaller, multi-purpose storage pieces like our Moda cubby offer flexibility to any kids’ space because they work as an end table, bookshelf or nightstand. Large open storage cubbies combined with drawers make it easy to stash anything and everything.
Idea #2: Storage benches
We love storage benches for their dual purpose: storage and seating. In the nursery above, our Ferris storage bench stashes books and serves as a spot for parents to perch while little ones play. The 18″ height means toddlers can easily use it as a play table, too.
Idea #3: Storage beds
Adding a storage bed is an easy way to maximize space. Our Wyatt bed has a large, sturdy drawer that opens from the foot of the bed to hold blankets, clothes, stuffed animal or games.
Idea #4: Picture ledges
Go vertical by adding picture ledges to display books and small toys. Multiple ledges stacked up the wall make a great display for small race cars, figurines or stuffed animals—and keeps them off the floor. Hang ledges where your kids can easily reach them. In the room above, our Trace picture ledge serves as an art display and catch-all above the bed.
