Maximize Storage Space With Built-Ins: Children's Room Edition

When it comes to designing a functional and organized space for your child's room, one of the key factors to consider is maximizing storage space. As any parent knows, children tend to accumulate an impressive amount of toys, books, and clothes over time. To tackle this challenge effectively, incorporating cabinets and built-ins into the room's design can be a game-changer!

Here, The Cabinet Chic explores various ways cabinets and built-ins can help transform your child's room into an efficient and stylish haven while making the most out of the available space.  

Unleash the Power of Built-In Storage in Kids' Rooms

With the right storage solutions, you can transform your children's bedrooms into organized and functional spaces.

One of the key advantages of built-in storage is its ability to maximize floor space. By incorporating shelves, cabinets, and drawers into the walls or furniture, you can eliminate the need for bulky freestanding units that take up valuable room.  

Bonus: This creates a more spacious environment for your kids to play and move around freely.

#1. Under the Bed Storage

Imagine having ample shelf space and drawers conveniently flanking the bed on either side, providing easy access to toys, books, and other essentials. Plus, pullout drawers nestled beneath the mattress take this built-in storage solution to another level.

  • The shelves provide a perfect spot for displaying your child's favorite stuffed animals or showcasing their treasured collection of action figures.  

  • The drawers offer an ideal place for storing clothes, blankets, or even board games that are frequently enjoyed during playtime.  

And let's not forget about those hidden pullout drawers beneath the mattress; they're like secret compartments waiting to be discovered—perfect for storing extra pillows, bedding sets, or seasonal clothing items. Nice!

#2. Built-In Wardrobe With Clothes Rack

Designed specifically for children's rooms, fitted wardrobes are the perfect height and width to accommodate their smaller garments. Gone are the days of struggling to find space for all those tiny shirts, pants, and dresses—these custom-built wardrobes provide ample storage while keeping everything neat and tidy.

The clever design of fitted wardrobes ensures that every inch is utilized effectively so that no space goes wasted.

With adjustable shelves and hanging rods, you can easily customize the interior layout according to your child's needs. This means you can create designated areas for folded clothes, shoes, accessories, and even toys.

#3. Wall Storage

Built-in cabinets along the wall are not only functional but also offer a sleek and seamless appearance that can enhance the overall aesthetic of a child’s room.  

By incorporating pullout baskets, see-through doors, and open shelving into these cabinets, you can create a versatile storage solution that is perfect for organizing toys, books, and other belongings.

#4. Window Seating With Hidden Storage

Window seating with hidden storage is the perfect addition to any children's room. It provides a cozy spot to curl up and read a book and offers a practical solution for storing toys, linens, shoes, and more.  

With built-in storage compartments cleverly concealed beneath the seat cushion, this window seating option maximizes space while keeping belongings organized and out of sight.

The beauty of built-in window seating lies in its versatility. It can be customized to fit any window size or shape, ensuring that every inch of space is utilized effectively.

#5. Built-In Closet

Even the tiniest closet can be transformed into a functional built-in closet with some clever design solutions. Installing floor-to-ceiling built-in shelves on one side of the closet provides ample storage for clothing and folded items but also creates visual interest by showcasing favorite toys and decorative accessories.  

Adding adjustable shelves allows for flexibility as your child grows and their storage needs change over time. Utilizing vertical space in this way ensures that no corner goes unused!

#6. Hidden Hideaway

If your children constantly seek new adventures and imaginative spaces, why not create a hidden hideaway in their room, inspired by the enchanting world of Narnia?  

The concept behind creating a hidden hideaway is to have a bookshelf or cabinet that doubles as a concealed entrance. Jib doors are perfect for this purpose, as they blend seamlessly with the surrounding wall when closed, and are practically “hidden” from sight. These hidden doors can be integrated into the design of a wardrobe, shelving unit, or even a cozy reading nook. Love!
