Furnishing your child's bedroom can be both enjoyable and frustrating, especially if space is limited. Trying to fit all of those essentials into the room, such as the bed, clothes and toys can be quite a challenge if you want to maximise floor space. Fortunately, there are furniture options and storage ideas out there that can help you to save much-needed space in your child's bedroom. Take a look at our useful space-saving tips that can help you!
Using shelving & storage systems to save space
One of the main ways that you can save space in your child’s bedroom is by using shelving and storage. This doesn’t have to mean just traditional bookshelves and chest of drawers as there are many other ways that you can be creative with your style of storage.
The real joy of shelving is that they can be placed anywhere within the bedroom, including the smallest gaps. To save space you can easily place shelving above the bed, above the desk, at the side of the door and even under windows. Just make sure that they are firmly attached to the wall. This type of shelving is useful for storing those toys that are not often used or for display items. You can even add shelving near a desk to store stationery and craft equipment.
Toy chests have always been popular for children’s bedrooms, but today this functional piece of bedroom furniture can also be multi-functional. You can now have a toy chest that is also a seat! They can easily be placed by a desk for when your child needs to study, or simply by itself for when your child wants to read. Toy chests come in a range of shapes and colours, allowing you to personalise the room.
Bookcases & book trolleys
Many children love to read and you can encourage their love of books by giving them their very own bookcase. Traditional bookcases or even book trolleys can help you add more storage to your child’s bedroom that can help you save floor space. If you are wanting to save even more space, then wall-mounted shelves would be a better option for storing all of your child’s books.
Using space-saving kids beds
The bed is the focal point of a bedroom, and the good news is that there are so many different styles, sizes and shapes for you to choose from. Choosing the right bed for your child’s bedroom is important as there are many kids beds options that can help save you even more bedroom space. Here are just some of our kids bunk beds that can help save you space:
