Creative Storage Solutions for your kids!

Storage is usually the first request I get from any client. In fact I hear the same thing over and over.. THERE IS JUST SO MUCH STUFF!! I have 5 cute solutions for you today that are pleasant to the eye and functional.

 A typical built in bookshelf ,on each side of a window, can provide you with a enormous amount of storage and is a style that your children can grow with. Place a toy box in between the windows for the younger years..add a cushion to the top during the elementary years for reading.. and then place a desk under the window during the pre-teen years.

Create a whole wall of book racks instead of stacking them in a normal bookshelf.have this very problem. I have so many books that my kids can never find the specific one they want to read. This is a great way to display for more reading pleasure. We are actually building something like this currently in a new client's room using rain gutters. ( Pictures to come soon!)

 We all have baskets everywhere but what about building a unit that you can sit on and the baskets fit perfectly underneath and out of the way. I love this idea!! We have turned bookshelves on their sides to make creating this idea easier than building them from scratch!

This might not be that practical if you are short on space BUT I love the idea of a playhouse for your little girl. Later on you can re-paint the wall and utilize for storage as she grows. I wish I had room for this for little Finley!

This is such a different concept. Build everything floating on the wall to utilize your floor space as much as possible. I really think this wall could work for all ages.  It could be book and art storage now and trophy/ text book storage later. 

Good luck conquering your storage problems at your home!! and as always the Bungalow team is here to help!!
