If you build it, the kids might actually keep it neat.
You have tried everything from rewards to restrictions. However, your kids’ rooms are always a mess and their clutter is basically stuff that has no home, right? Clothes, towels, toys, and clutter are everywhere. Remember, your child opens the closet doors, and looks down and sees the floor, and looks UP and sees the hanging bar. Where do you think the stuff in their hands is going to go? ON THE FLOOR!
You can involve your child in the organization process by allowing them to determine storage locations for all their STUFF! Involving your children in decisions will empower them. Younger children forget about objects if they can not see them. Therefore, open containers and exposed shelving will help your kids put away and find objects. Children that are three to five years of age enjoy independently getting dressed. Therefore, we design low hanging closet rods, shelves, and baskets that they can reach. Younger school age children may benefit from labels in order to correctly put away objects. There is hope!
Closets that change when the kids do
As kids grow and change, their storage needs do too. So at Closet Storage Organizers, we design closets that can grow and change when the kids do:
- A three-tiered rod for baby clothes can turn into a double-hang for jeans and jackets. Or a single-hang for long coats and prom dresses.
- Shelves and bins can adjust to handle folded sweaters and sweatshirts instead of teddy bears.
- Drawers can replace shelves to (maybe, just maybe) keep things out of sight.
And, we are here to help you.
If you just can not get a grip on your child’s belongings, give us a call. If you are still using a traditional rod-with-shelf-above closet, give us a call. Your children do not need a walk in closet just because they have piles of clothing, toys and clutter. More space is not always the answer to the problem.
The answer is occasional purging of broken and unused items, and most importantly, better use of their space. And this applies whether the space is a reach in closet, playroom, or any other storage area. If you call or visit us today, we will help get your family on their way to being neater and more organized!
