The Best Kids Bedroom Storage Ideas

by | Jun 20, 2022 | Interior Design

Looking for amazing yet feasible ideas to organise your kids’ bedroom? You came to the right place!

The kids’ room may just about be the messiest part of the house. Children have their own little world while playing. If only they could be as invested in the after-play clean up as they are when deciding what toys to take out! Between Legos, stuffed animals, activity books and costumes, it can all get too overwhelming.

Luckily, there are wonderful kids’ bedroom storage ideas all over the internet! These are sure to help keep your kids’ room clean and ready for another day of playtime.

More than that, proper bedroom storage can teach your little ones how to organise their things early! There is no better place to start than their own personal space.

We’ve narrowed down the best and easiest bedroom storage options for your kids in this list. We hope this inspires you to try them in your home!

1. Stackable Storage Bins And Baskets

Baskets look wonderful in your kids bedroom, and they're easy to store toys.

Simple yet outrageously effective, storage bins are a great way to store your kids’ things.

Getting creative with stacking the bins and filling them up with toys of all sizes make them one of the best ways to store your child’s items.

The great thing about using bins or baskets is that they’re optimised for storage, meaning they can even fit big teddy bears or a large pack of legos.

Go a step further by colour-coding or labelling the bins!

2. Storage-Friendly Bookcase

Bookshelves are a common option for storing materials in Aussie households. Don’t hold yourself back from using the typical bookcase for more than just storing books.

Match the colour of the shelves to the theme of your kids’ room and you immediately have a cute organiser that’s big enough for your child’s books and toys! Just remember not to put heavy or hard toys on the upper shelves and it’s sure to be a perfect fit.

A bookshelf is a great way to store toys.

3. Display Jars

Jars are such a big help in organising and they’re absolutely perfect for handling small and easy-to-lose toys. Not to mention, they’re nice enough to pass as displays on your kid’s shelves!

Jars also teach your child patience and how to properly handle fragile objects. The sky’s the limit with what you choose to store in these. From bouncy balls to small toy cars, there are more things you can keep in jars than you would think. The colours inside the jar make it pop on the shelf too!

4. Rain Gutter Bookshelves

Set up a small and reliable reading corner in your kid’s bedroom by using painted rain gutters to hold their books on the wall. You can opt to set multiple levels at the perfect height for your children and lay a few pillows on the floor for comfy reading sessions.

Not sure how to start? You can find rain gutters with easy DIY installations at local home improvement centres.

5. Unique Bed Storage

From built-in cabinets to rolling drawers under the bed, you have a lot of choices when it comes to utilising all the space in your child’s bedroom. Aside from getting rid of the hassle of cleaning under the bed, your child will find it easier to keep tabs on his or her toys when they are close by! We’re fans of Adairs Storage Bags for storage under our children’s beds.

6. Toilet Paper Car Garage

A fun and creative way to keep your kid’s toy car collection organised is using toilet rolls to build a toy parking garage! It’s neat to look at and easy for your child to access – definitely a good idea for parents who have children with an enthusiasm for toy cars. All you need is toilet paper or paper towel rolls, a shoe box, glue, and tape!

Toy cars can be lost easily if not stored in a good spot where kids can find them.

7. Pegboard Wall

A pegboard wall is also a great space-saver for your household. What’s impressive about this option is that you can adjust the shelves to your liking. Whether it be for small collectibles or big Nerf guns, a pegboard wall will bring your child’s storage skills to the next level!

8. Stuffed Animal Bean Bag

This is another easy yet impressive storage idea we recommend for your kid’s room. Everyone loves bean bags, especially kids! Use this to your advantage by purchasing a bean bag that your children can store their stuffed animals inside. Once full, it’s a comfy seat for them too. It’s a win for both of you!

9. Board Game Shoe Organiser

Sturdy shoe boxes and hanging shoe organisers are effective even for things that don’t go on your feet. The shape and size of shoe organisers are perfect for board games and toys. To save space, you can choose to hang it on the backside of your child’s bedroom door, or in the closet if there is one in the bedroom.

10. Magnet Bars

Your kids’ bedroom walls can be one of the best places to set up storage for their numerous toys and collectibles. An impressive trick is to have a magnet bar installed! This can be used to store metallic toys simply and visibly – perfect for little kids. Magnet bars are easy to find in online shops or home improvement stores near you.

11. Hanging Bed Organiser For Night Time

If your kids need books for story time or stuffed animals to cuddle with when going to bed, this is one of the best storage options for you! Having an organiser attached to the side of your child’s bed like this Bedside Tidy from Adairs makes it easier for them to get the items before sleeping. It’s also super easy for them to return the books and toys once they wake up!

Having storage right next to your kid's bed can keep their favourite toys close by

12. Wire Baskets

Wire baskets are a beautiful and unique way to save space. You can use them to stack items from the ground up, but they are also quite effective when hung from the walls. Wire baskets, like the ones found in bicycles, are spacious because of their structure. This makes them the perfect storage for stuffed toys!

13. Hampers For Stuffed Toys

Using a hamper to store toys is simple and easy!

Hampers are in every home, but they don’t have to be limited to laundry use.

The fact that you can get a variety of sizes of hampers with different designs makes this another smart way to store stuffed toys.

To make sure that the hamper doesn’t fall over, avoid putting hard or heavy toys inside.

Your kids will love how easy it is to grab their favourite toys out!

14. Hidden Compartments

A cool trick to keeping your kids’ unused toys out of sight is using furniture with hidden compartments. There are chairs, cabinets, desks, and even ottomans that are made to store items within. It’ll be a while before you see messy toys ever again once you have furniture with hidden storage!

15. Teepees

Teepees for kids can be a reading nook if well lit and also a sort of indoor camping experience. They can also act as an amazing storage room for your kids’ knick-knacks whenever they’re not in use! We recommend storing stuffed toys inside to make sure that the teepee is stable. Check out the teepees from Adairs, they’ve got adorable designs!

A Learning Experience To Remember

Figuring out ways to store your kids’ toys is more than just your typical cleaning task. It can be a fun experience for both you and your kids! Getting creative with storage can encourage your children to be more creative in general.

Aside from that, it gives you both a sense of resourcefulness and ingenuity. Lastly, it’s a huge win for you as a parent when your child begins to understand the value of cleanliness.
