Bring Order to the Kids' Chaos!
Bring Order to the Chaos!

1. Play Time
With so many toys it’s easy for bedrooms to get out of hand. Use plastic storage crates and boxes to keep all of those play items in. Flourish recommends using clear boxes so that your children can see what’s inside, making finding that one toy they just have to play with now all the more easier.
2. What to Wear?
Make dressing your children easier in the mornings with a well organised wardrobe. Keep all clothes no longer used in a storage container or a vacuum sealed bag. It’s also a good idea to hang some hooks up in the room where jackets or coats can be kept. Make sure you hang them within reach of children but not so low that they may hurt themselves on any sharp edges. Storing shoes in a hanging net basket is also a great idea as it saves space and keeps dirty shoes of the flooring.
3. Be Creative
Organise a study area for your child to draw or play at and later in life to use as a homework area. Store crayons and pencils in mugs or cups and keep paper in drawers so that the area looks tidy. Make sure you have plenty of shelving for books and extra art supplies.
4. Show it Off
Worried about sticking posters or pictures to the wall because of damaging the paint work? Invest in a large corkboard and hang it in an accessible area, not too high off the floor, so that your child can add to it at their will.
With kids becoming more technologically savvy these days, most will need an area to store and organise CDs, video games and DVDs. Wall mounted storage units work really well as they don’t take up too much room and look decorative on an empty area.
