It is only natural to want your children to have the world, but what happens when there is no space for any of it?
Your children’s bedroom doubles up as so many things. Their office, their playroom, where they sleep and relax, and also where they keep all of their stuff – this is why space-saving tips can really help you out.
If you are looking at making more space in your kid’s bedroom, this piece is here to walk you through some tips that can help everyone see the carpet.
Sort the Big Items
The larger items are going to be the ones that take up the bulk of the space. The bed (or beds) and furniture will set the tone of the room, so if you can make these more compact and space friendly, you are already halfway there.
The primary function of the bedroom is sleeping, so if you do need to mix some things up for more space, make sure not to skimp on quality. It matters a little less with wardrobes and drawers, whereas beds need to be comfortable and supportive.
A great space saver for children’s bedrooms is bunk beds with mattress options. These are great if you have multiple children sharing a bedroom or you want your child to be able to utilize the space underneath their bed.
Make It Multi-Functional
Using multi-functional furniture is one of the best ways to make space in any room if you want to get the most out of it. Usually, this type of furniture will double up as storage and something useful, such as a desk. An example of this might be a stool or chair that is actually a box that can be filled with things.
You could also choose to invest in smart furniture that can be folded away when not in use. Having tables that fold down from the wall is a great way to save space and also provide your children with a writing and reading area.
Hide It Away
Perhaps the most realistic of these tips, sometimes what you can’t see can’t hurt you!
While this isn’t exactly helping you make more space in your kid’s room, it will give you the illusion that it is a bit bigger. Clutter is inevitable in a kid’s room, but not having it on show can help the room feel more relaxed and spacious. Use a curtain to conceal stuffed animals or messy shelves, and get them some toy boxes that are stackable to help keep everything out of the way.
The best way to make more space in your kid’s bedroom is to get rid of the stuff they don’t want or use anymore. This will be trickier for some kids than it will be for others, so exercise with caution! If you are able to store some of the things they are not ready to part with somewhere else, that will give them peace of mind and more room in their room!
