How Do I Organize My Child’s Closet?

Organize My Child's Closet

Your child’s closet is just as important as your own, if not more so! They need a space for their Sunday best and out-of-season clothes and shoes, but they also need their own space that they are responsible for. Teaching organizational habits from a young age will help your child learn responsibility and appreciate what they have.

So, how do you organize your child’s closet? Keep reading to find out!

Install A Double or Triple Hanging System

A double, or even triple, adjustable hanging bar is the way to go for a child’s closet, it is definitely “kid-friendly closet organization.”  It will help you use the vertical space of the closet. This feature is beneficial when you are working with small storage space.

Think about it! You’ll have more space to organize by size and season. As your child grows, you can always adjust or replace with shelves to make room for larger pieces, but for now, make the most out of what you have.

DIY Dividers with Labels

Kids can grow out of their clothes at exponential rates. So, odds are you have multiple sizes at the ready, just in case. Buy some patterned paper to make labels out of. Mark each label with the different sizes you’re organizing. This way, you can quickly pull from or put back any piece of clothing without thinking about where it belongs.

Not into DIY? Don’t worry. There are plenty of printable options available on Pinterest.

Place A Dresser or Pull-out Drawers in The Closet

This hack is the move for you if you’re trying to make the most out of a small bedroom. You want your child’s living space to feel open and uncluttered. This will help them sleep easier at night.

It’s an easy and cheap way to expand your storage capabilities. Simply place their dresser in their closet and build the rest of your storage needs around it.  

Or if you are trying to streamline and simplify, eliminate the dresser in the bedroom for a more open feel and install custom drawers in your kid’s closet organizer for their socks, underwear, shorts, and t-shirts.

Use Baskets & Bins

You’re not going to put every piece of clothing on a hanger. Use neutral-colored baskets or bins to store other clothing pieces to help you stay organized. Think about placing these baskets and bins closer to the ground, so your child can access them. They can pick out their clothes and put them back when needed.

Get Some Plastic Toy Totes

Odds are you’re probably storing some of your child’s toys in their closet. You’ll need something heavier and studier to handle all the daily wear and tear that comes with child’s play every day.

You can find small totes for all sorts of different toys. Place them on the floor of your child’s closet, so they have easy access to them.

Utilize The Inside of the Closet Door(s)

Do you want to double your storage space? Well, we have the solution for you. Install storage options (i.e., shoe racks, hooks, baskets, bins, etc.) inside the closet door(s) to expand your storage capabilities.

This option will help leave the actual closet space free for clothes and is helpful if your child is sharing their closet with a sibling.
