Children’s closets can often be difficult to organize for multiple reasons. They have different needs than adults with smaller-sized  clothing. But they also often have a wider variety items to store – a collection of toys, books, stuffed animals, sports gear and more. Because they are just learning how to organize their belongings, they need simple and accessible storage to help them instill good organization habits. A flexible and smart solution will grow with your child as their needs change.

Here are some intelligent and creative ideas to help keep your children’s closet organized!

Look at the closet through your child’s perspective

Before you begin the process of planning how to arrange and organize your kids closet, you need to look at it through their eyes. Most closets are made for adults and have the hanging at higher levels. You can fit multiple hanging rods at different levels for children in order to maximize the closet space. These can be also adjusted to different heights as your child grows. Pull-down rods are a great  solution for hanging seasonal clothing which only needs to be accessed occasionally.


Plan the closets for now and in the future

Most closet organizers have special pieces and components that can be re-positioned or added later to accommodate changing clothing size, type and accessory items. For example, maybe your daughter is growing and transitioning from active wear into dresses. Additional shelving or hanging rods can be added to accommodate the change in wardrobe items.


Let your children become involved in the organization process

It’s easy as adults to want to jump in and do everything for our kids. However, it is important to remember that the closet space is for them and should be functional for their needs, not yours. Encourage them to share where and how they would like to keep their favorite items. Once that has been established, you can create a place for everything and have them put everything in its place. They can even be involved in picking out bins, baskets and other items and help decorate the closet and create order.
