If you have kids, you know that they grow out of everything. Here at California Closets, we believe that includes closets, as well. As your kids get bigger, their closets need to expand to hold bigger shoes, more clothes and storage. Our talented design experts from California Closets put together several ideas to designing the perfect closet that’s functional, safe and stylish for your child here in Cleveland, Barberton, Beach City, Brewster, Canal Fulton, Canton, Clinton, East Sparta, Hartville, Massillon, Mogadore, Navarre, North Canton or Uniontown.
When your child is little, you need to make sure he or she is able to grab things on their own (without the help of mom or dad). This also makes it safer so the child isn’t climbing onto cubbies, drawers and shelving). Build the closet from the ground-up, so that cubbies, shelves and drawers start at the floor and only go up so high. Decorations and storage that the child doesn’t need to access can go on the top.
If your child has a small room and an even smaller closet space, it’s important to maximize the space they do have. Take advantage of every corner and wall space to store every shoe, toy and keepsake. Cubbies, adjustable shelving, pullout baskets and shelving help keep floor space clear.
In addition to building a closet, it’s smart to think beyond. Integrated desks create a space for completing projects or doing homework, and closet doors provide the option to hide away toys, clothes and homework workspaces when not in use.
You want your closet with your child as long as they’re in the house. Make it simple with a teen redesign process that can be integrated into the original design. Changing out one or two doors or drawers, or even getting new hardware, is a very inexpensive way to reimagine the entire look of the room. These personalized changes, along with a wall color change, can help a teen feel in a sense of ownership of his or her space without breaking the bank.
When it comes to your kids’ bedrooms and closets, the more flexible you are, the better. For a solution that will move with your child (if you tend to move a lot), a wardrobe solution is a great way to incorporate organization and style without having it be permanent. The wardrobe has all of the same functionality as a reach-in closet, but it can be easily moved like any other piece of furniture.
