Childhood is magic, but it can sometimes be a bit messy. From nursery age to those beautiful (and sometimes long!) toddler years, there is nothing better than watching our littles explore the world around them. Designing a space that allows them to do just that—all while keeping it clean—can sometimes be a challenge. Fortunately, it all comes down to a few good organization techniques.
With a few simple tricks, you can keep your kids’ rooms beautiful and clean without infringing on play time. We’re sharing four of our go-to tips for organizing a kid’s room, making whimsical afternoons of imaginative play a bit less overwhelming after those make-believe dragons are slayed.

With kids, every day is a play day. It can make their rooms a bit of a mess as they use their imaginations throughout the day, but that mess is nothing that can’t be tackled with some planning. Designate a space for each of their toys and knick-knacks, making cleaning up a little easier.
Whether it’s a set of simple wooden blocks or a beloved stuffed animal, some of our kids’ things deserve to be displayed. We love incorporating these pieces into bookshelves, cabinets, or built-ins. Not only do they bring more personality to the space and allow kids to feel represented, but it also keeps things cohesive and elevated.

Placing textural baskets and decorative jars throughout the room not only gives the space a thoughtful, collected feel, but it also expands your storage space. Giving everything from beaded bracelets to small toys a home, jars keep surfaces clear while baskets house all the extra textiles and toys that would otherwise lie around the room.
When organizing kids’ spaces, sometimes there just isn’t room for everything. Our recommendation? Stick to the spaces you’ve dedicated for storage, and if their things are growing beyond that, begin clearing out pieces they no longer use. Rather than continuing to add to the room, it’s helpful to pare back and keep only the things that make your little one’s lives (and their space) beautiful.
