TIPS FOR ORGANIZING YOUR KID’S BEDROOM It isn’t always easy to keep a kid’s room clean. Sometimes it feels like it’s going to overflow with stuffed animals, toys and artwork. But with a few smart organizational solutions you can help your child keep their room neat and tidy – without making them get rid of all their toys! First, invest in some trays with a tall lip around the edge. Unlike baskets, trays allow kids to still see their stuff, but they keep things contained. Trays are great for smaller items like lego, blocks and art supplies. Next, install picture shelves along the walls, which can be used for framed artwork as well as to display favourite books. It also makes the books easy to access for when the mood to read strikes. Another great idea is to get a few rolling carts. Rolling carts have become quite popular for those who work from home because they’re so easy to move. Your kid may not have a job – yet, but they most likely have crafty things that would fit perfectly in a cart. Another fun idea from the realm of office work – a bulletin board. Get a corkboard and wrap it in colourful fabric, then pin up photos and other treasures your kid loves. Last up, don’t just install a coat hook on the back of their bedroom door. Instead, get hooks in fun shapes and colours and install them at different heights across one of the bedroom walls. Your child can hang up their sweaters, bags, dress-up clothes – and anything else they like!


No natural light in your loo? No problem! There are ways to make the absence of windows far less noticeable. For example, white or off-white walls keep the space feeling open, while dark walls will make it feel far smaller. If you’re not a fan of plain walls, opt for a very soft green or blue and then bring white in via accessories like towels, art and a rug. Another great way to deceive the eye into seeing more light is by adding reflective surfaces. A wall mirror is a must, but also consider installing a reflective vanity or mirrored accessories like silver picture frames or vases. Speaking of vanities, instead of a vanity with a full cabinet, choose one with thin legs and a small drawer. Sure, you lose out on a bit of storage space, but you gain a feeling of openness that can’t be beat.
