kids' closet organization Hilton HeadAre you frustrated by the inability to contain the clutter in your child’s closet? A closet should be a great place to store toys and clothes, but without organization it can quickly turn into a catchall for your kids’ belongings. Here are some tips from closet organization pros at More Space Place Hilton Head to make it easier for your kids to make use of their closet and keep it organized.

1. Hang Things Low

If you want to teach your children to be responsible for their own clothing, you don’t want to place the bar too high (literally). If the hanging rack is higher than they can reach, they won’t be able to hang up their clothes. Lower the bar, and it’ll be much easier for them to be responsible for retrieving and putting away their own clothing.

2. Label Items Stored High

The shelf at the top of the closet is a great place to store out-of-season clothes and rarely used toys. However, the items stored in bins up there will soon be forgotten if you can’t remember what you put in them. Use labels so you and your child can clearly see what is in the bins and boxes, which will allow you to easily find what you need when you need it.

3. Group Like Items Together

Group shirts with shirts, dresses with dresses, and pants with pants. This will help your kids find what they need quickly, and it will also encourage them to put things away properly when they’re done with them.

4. Ditch the Lids

For toys and shoes, use storage bins without lids. When kids can see inside, they’re more likely to use the items and put them away when they’re done. Having custom shelving installed in the closet, then storing lidless bins on those shelves, will make the closet efficient while helping maintain organization.

As you can see, organizing your kids’ closets doesn’t have to be a difficult process. With a little bit of time and creativity, you can turn the closets into logical and effective custom storage spaces that will encourage your kids to keep their belongings tidy.
