In all the excitement of the holiday season it is easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of toy gift shopping. It’s that time of year we indulge in giving and don’t feel guilty for spoiling our little ones with items off their wish lists.
The shopping is done, the kids are in bed, you throw on your winter flannels & cozy up on the living room floor surrounded by rolls of wrapping paper. Your favorite holiday movie begins and you scan around the room at all the bags and boxes full of goodies to wrap. That’s when it hits you…. “Where are we going to put all of this?!”
Every year you talk about how you plan on finishing the basement for that much-needed dedicated kid zone and reclaiming your living space –
Or you find yourself staring at the baskets and toys that pile up in the corner… wouldn’t this be the perfect place for a large built-in to organize and store the kids growing pile of toys and belongings??
It is easy for these ideas to get pushed to the back burner and never make it to the top of the priority list. The lack of storage and organization lingers and the problem only grows! It is always so easy to add to the piles of clutter around the home, and it seems like mission impossible to tackle the task of sorting, purging, and storing!
Diplomat Closet Design has a very simple answer to your toughest organizational questions… “YES, we can do that!” We put together 5 of our favorite suggestions for keeping the kids organized through the holidays and beyond! It is our goal to find solutions that fit every client’s needs and seamlessly incorporate into their home and daily routines.
Our first instinct when it comes to de-cluttering our children’s room is to shove everything into the closet, shut the door, wipe our hands, and walk away. Well, you don’t have to do that anymore! Diplomat Closet Design can customize attractive built-in solutions that can visually enhance any room. Some of our favorite enhancements to children rooms include:
Why cover precious square footage by cluttering the corner with baskets and toy bins when we can build up? Once the floor is clear and the corner is empty that room immediately feels bigger and cleaner! What was once a blank wall is now a floor-to-ceiling built-in that hides the toys and games behind beautiful cabinet doors.
Diplomat Closet Design can incorporate other key features of your room into this new vertical storage design taking your children’s new storage unit to the next level by adding baseboard and crown molding so it appears it was built with the room. What functions as a hide-away now seconds as a showpiece in your home!
Forget about toys – what about all the iPads, iPhones, and other electronics that are left charging on the kitchen counter or on the end tables? Or how about the endless pile of papers and take home items from school? All the hand-made crafts and art projects add up and pile up!
Creating a unit that incorporates storage, desk tops, even a charging station provides a dedicated zone for the kids to stay organized and keeps your counters and table clear! This area also provides a great place for completing homework!
We have two words: Slat Wall! We love this versatile product and when you get creative with the application of it the options are endless!
If they feel included and proud to have been a part of the creation they maybe more likely to put things away and use it.
Here are some of our favorites:
We know the holidays are hectic and boy, do they fly by! In January when all the new toys, games, and gadgets are looking for a home, think of us! Diplomat Closet Design is a phone call away and we would love to provide you with a free consultation to help you tame your Toymageddon!
