Closet Organizing for Kids - Eight Excellent Tips

Saturday, July 27, 2013
Closet organizing for teens and younger children can be challenging, no matter what methods you put into place.

And if you thinCustom Reach In Closet by Closet OSk about it from their perspective – it’s pretty difficult for teens to take the time to actually hang up a garment in their Chicago closets when they are glued to Xbox live or have an average of 80 text messages day, according to recent studies.

But there is hope!

With good planning and assessment of what needs to be stored and how – you might get lucky enough to actually see part of the bedroom floor by utilizing closet organizing. closet organizing Chicago

So here are some important things to think about when planning your custom storage solutions for the kid friendly spaces in your home:

1) Determine what items need to call this Chicago closet space home. Are there toys and sports equipment, in addition to clothing, that need to be stored here?

2) What percentage do you want to hang and what percentage do you want to fold? And, if space allows in your closet system, do you want drawers?

3) Where does dirty laundry end up? Would you like pullout baskets/drawers in your closet system for that?

4) Be sure to have adjustable hanging sections so if children are very young, space will allow triple hang (three rows of hanging garments). As the children grow and the clothing takes up more space, you can remove one of the rods and have traditional double hang.

5) Make sure to have low shelves for children to easily put away the most frequently used items.

6) Incorporate kid size hangers. Standard hangers are often too large for such small clothing items.

7) Teach children how to treat clothing and reward them for with special rewards for keeping it organized. It’s an investment in time that will pay dividends for the rest of their lives.

8) Incorporate hooks for easy closet organizing with anything from sweat pants to back packs.

Note: These photos are from a project we did in the Healthy Home 2010. A small child’s closet and a “princess” closet were included in this entire house project. The other was for three young boys featured in the Luxury Home Tour.
