CONVERTIBLE FURNITURE, LARGE CAPACITY CHESTS, DRAWER SEPARATORS AND TRUNKS, WILL MAKE ORDERING A GAME
The main cause of the mess is the lack of planning and appropriate organizational solutions to make everything its place and easily accessible. Follow this step by step to organize the children's bedroom from start to finish.
The key to good organizational work is exquisite pre-planning. Remember that without planning order does not last.
Following this premise:
1. EXAMINE SPACE AND ALL BELONGINGS
Look at the space, the furniture you have and all the belongings; clothing, toys, books and study material.
It is advisable even that you make an inventory so that you are aware of everything there is.
2. ANALYZE STORAGE SYSTEMS
See if the storage systems you have are sufficient and adequate; Keep in mind that adult organizational systems do not meet the needs of the whole family.
Sliding or bellows doors, for example, catch fingers and come out of the guides. Closet bars are often out of range and large toy boxes house a whirling of various objects.
2. STORAGE SYSTEMS
Although each particular case should be assessed, it can be said in general that the basis of child storage is the ease with which children can take out and reposition.
Based on this rule make sure the room contains:
CONTAINERS AT GROUND LEVEL. Baskets and containers without lids are the best option for storing toys.
SEPARATORS OR BOXES FOR THE INTERIOR OF DRAWERS. If you want to prevent socks from mixing with swimsuits, the best option is organizational boxes that allow you to divide the drawers into sections.
LARGE BELLOWS FILING CABINETS. Perfect for preserving the collection of drawings they make throughout a school year.
FLEXIBLE FURNITURE STRUCTURES. They adapt as they get older so you'll save yourself good money.
DRAWERS UNDER BED. They create extra very valuable storage and are perfect for storing bed linen, costumes, shoes or clothes from the previous season.
3. LEVELS IN THE ORGANIZATION
Organize from the bottom up and consider your child's height.
Based on this, the most commonly used toys and belongings should be placed in the lower drawers and shelves or at ground level.
When children are young they don't usually have endless clothing so a hanging bar at eye level should be enough.
If this is not the case, place a second bar just above it, for the most occasional clothes. You can store your socks and underwear in boxes.
Printing graphic labels with images of socks, T-shirts, dolls and building blocks will help the child remember the site of each object.
Investing in a modern DYMO will be of great help in the task of etiquette. You'll see how useful and addictive this little machine can be.
It's my amulet. I adore her!
5. FAMILY ROUTINES
Children are the mirror of their parents and many of their behaviors are given by imitation.
Get off your way home and your child will follow you, clean your teeth next to him and he or she will soon ask for a brush.
Don't demand that they keep their room tidy if your room is a lioness and share established routines with them to become a habit.
