Tips For Organising A Toddler's Room


Now that Amelia is getting older and spending more time in her room I have been looking at ways to make it toddler friendly and more importantly more organised. Ever since she was a newborn it's basically been more of a dumping ground for our never ending collection of baby items and clothes. Since moving to our new house I finally got round to buying a chest of drawers and wardrobe so can finally put all of her clothes away neatly and hide other bits and bobs at the back out of her reach.

Organisation is key to keeping a room clean and tidy. Here are some tips for organising your toddler's room.

Wardrobe

Making your own wardrobe dividers are a cheap way to organise your child's wardrobe into sections. When Amelia was born I had her clothes sectioned into age category for example 0-3, 3-6, 6-9, 9-12 and 12-18 months. Now that she is coming up to 18 months I will be separating her clothes into 12-18 and 18-24 months. You can see a tutorial I did here on how to make your own.

Hanging wardrobe organisers can be a worthwhile investment. I had one hanging in Amelia's nursery to store her clothes which came with 4 shelfs. They are great for rotating clothes, blankets and toys. I would have her baby grows and leggings all neatly stacked and then once she outgrew them I would pack them away and add the next size.

Plastic Boxes 

Plastic Box Shop Storage Boxes are great for under the bed storage as well as keeping toys tidy and kept away. Another use for these type of boxes would be for keeping keepsakes such as baby's first things as well as anything you wish to keep safe. I have one of these boxes full of Amelia's newborn bits and bobs including some of her first outfits, and first Christmas items. I keep this on top of her wardrobe and its hidden out of the way. 

Bookcase

Bookcases are a great way of keeping books organised in the bedroom. A great way of keeping they tidy is to encourage your toddler to put them back after each use. You could even have them colour co-cordinated and also label the shelfs so they are learning.

Storage Baskets


Baskets come in handy for so many things. For storing headbands, baby lotions and medicines, toys, socks, you name it. They can be kept in the wardrobe, on top of the wardrobe, in the drawer, under the bed and on a shelf. There are so many different uses for baskets and they come in so many different sizes which last for ages.

Do you have any tips for organising a toddler's room?
