Unique Design + Practical Functionality: Loving These Storage Ideas for Kids’ Rooms

Unique design with practical functionality is a match made in heaven, particularly when it comes to kids’ rooms. And what better place to apply this concept than storage? We looked around and found some fabulous kids storage ideas to help you create a one-of-a-kind look and reduce the clutter.

Sugar Crate Storage - Emma's DesignBlogg

Check out these sugar crates turned into rolling toy storage by design guru Emma of Emma’s DesignBlogg—so clever and so practical. We also like how these wire garden plant holders were converted into wall storage per Apartment Therapy. You can adjust how high to place them on the wall so that little hands can or cannot (depending on the items) reach them.

And, for the DIYers out there, you can use curtains to bring order to a chaotic area. See how designer Caroline Gomez hung curtains to hide little clothes in a makeshift but oh-so-cute mini closet—perfect so that little hands can reach them. Great storage ideas need not be limited to the bedroom. We love this funky collection of wall hooks that can liven up a mud room or entry way. From Land of Nod, the colors are vibrant and the design modern which is sure to bring smiles to kids or adults.

Tin Can Storage - Elsie Marley

Finally, for organizing the playroom, check out this photo from Elsie Marley showing how you can use tin cans to organize crayons, pencils, markers, glue, and other art supplies. Though we can’t guarantee it, your kids might actually enjoy cleaning up with this set up in place.

Love these ideas! it’s refreshing not to be tied to conventional storage ideas and to ‘think outside the box’.
