Kids love their toys – parents not so much, particularly when there is little room for storage and those toys end up all over the floor.
Whether your child has a large bedroom or one just big enough for the major essentials, there are storage solutions that will enable you to organize your child’s bedroom no matter what its size.
Turning a couple of bookshelves into a corner bench/storage center is a great idea if you have room. You just need two bookshelves that are the same size. Just line them up on both walls touching in the corner (lie them on their sides). You can purchase or even make cushions for the top to turn them into a great sitting area and the openings are perfect for holding baskets or canvas totes where you can store toys. Add labels to the totes and you can really keep things organized. Via: Arizonafoothillsmagazine – Ikea Transformations for Stylish and Organized Kids’ Rooms

Canvas Totes for Under the Bed Storage
Even if your child does not have a trundle bed, you can enjoy the same amount of storage space. You simply have to add a few canvas totes or boxes that fit underneath the bed. They will slide out of the way and store loads of toys. This is a great idea for utilizing space that is normally wasted. Via: Amazon.com – One step ahead my closet underbed storage bin.
No one ever thinks of utilizing ceiling space for storage. You can actually create a system of hanging baskets on the ceiling that give you loads of storage space and look very neat, too. The system uses pulleys to move the baskets and lower them so that your child can put toys in or take them out. When they are not being used, the baskets hang high overhead, out of the way and off the floor. Via: Amerifirst – Cool DIY Home Improvement: Kids Room Storage on the Ceiling
