What do color and storage have in common? When you've become overwhelmed by your child's cluttered room, colored containers - as well as clothes hangers and unfinished furniture you can paint to match - can bring life to the room.
Are you overwhelmed by clothes, books and toys everywhere? If you answered yes, just imagine how your child feels. With so much kid stuff everywhere room cleaning is anything but fun.
That’s where a little color and creativity comes in. Conquering clutter doesn’t have to be a chore. With a solid plan and a little patience you can turn a messy child’s room into an organized environment in a matter of hours.
By using color as an essential part of your child’s organizing system you make the clean up process fun. And by knowing that each toy has a home your child can then learn how to return items after play. Even very young children can benefit from color coordination.
Preschoolers in particular learn their colors faster when they routinely put colored items in matching bins.
A colored storage system starts by purchasing large cubes, bins or baskets. You don’t have to stick with primary colors either. The toys and storage containers of today come in all colors and shapes.
And if you’re having trouble coming up with enough containers in the color(s) of your choice consider spray painting baskets or covering boxes with matching wallpaper.

Unfinished wood furniture is ideal for rooms you’ll be implementing a colorful organizing system in. This kind of furniture is the ideal canvas for all kinds of decorative touches. You may even wish to give each drawer a different color.
Even when space is tight you can incorporate a little extra color and storage space by fitting the insides of wardrobe drawers with either hooks or plastic coated grids with shelves.
Organizing kid stuff by size is also a good idea. Storing small and large things together can result in lost or broken items. Where possible small items should be contained in smaller bins. That said, there is wisdom in storing items together that will be used together. In that case it’s a matter of packaging small items up separately within a bigger bin or container.
Colorful storage doesn’t end with visual storage around the room. Consider adding a little color to your child’s closet by using colorful hangers and hooks. More closet design and closet organization tips can be found by visiting http://www.decorating-kids-rooms.net/closet-design.html
