If your little ones are anything like ours, then having some decent storage solutions to hide away those toy trains, softies, Duplo, Lego, plastic singing apples, play toasters… (you get the picture) is an absolute must! We’re always on the look out for clever and unique storage ideas, whether it’s with cute fabric baskets, customising IKEA furniture or even having something specially crafted just for you. Have a browse below at some of our favourite ideas when it comes to storing away all that clutter!
1. Loft Bed Storage Steps via Marie Willumsen
We love this idea of making a custom cabinet that can double up as extra storage and steps up to a loft bed. This is a great use of space and a clever way for siblings to share a bedroom by giving them their own individual nooks.
(Check out more of our lovely shared bedroom ideas here.)
Fabric baskets are an inexpensive and stylish way to store away those extra cuddly toys or even blankets and cushions! We love this classic striped design by House Doctor (£12!) or even the reusable paper sacks by Tellkiddo.
You can always count on Ikea when it comes to excellent storage solutions. Their furniture can be adapted to suit rooms of all sizes and colour schemes. We love this minimal look, with soft natural tones adding some warmth to monochrome bedrooms.
4. Storage Bed
A unique bed with loads of storage is another handy idea if you’re tight on space and needing a few more handy drawers. This one from Cuckooland has 8 storage drawers and is made to order, crafted in solid beech wood and MDF.
For those lovely books and trinkets open shelving is a nice way to show off some of your child’s treasured pieces. This sweet trio of houses from Loaf would work beautifully in both a girls and boys room.
6. Under Bed Trundle Play Table With Storage
Don’t have space for a play table, no worries! This amazing design from The Great Little Trading Company is the perfect size for storing underneath the bed and to keep all those trains and lego pieces organised. You could also have a shot at making one yourself! Here’s a DIY that you can try at home.
How beautiful is this bespoke plywood wardrobe? When working with a small room some custom furniture can help you reach its full potential.
8. Wooden Crate Boxes via Forest Kids Room
These wooden crate boxes are not only cheap to up-cycle, but they also add loads of character and can be used as both floor and wall storage!
One of the perks with anything homemade (if you have the time and skill set of course!) is that you can have loads of fun customising your creations. We love these big cabinets, which have become a super cool and practical bedroom feature!
10. IKEA STUVA
We’re big fans of the IKEA STUVA range (see our post dedicated to this range here) which is wonderfully versatile and can be combined in a number of ways. We love it combined with some open shelving above as styled here by @svartvitrandig
