And, to help you, here are some clues you can use set up the children’s wardrobe it’ll be very easy for you.
There are key moments throughout the year when it becomes necessary to review the order that governs our spaces. And the change of season (from summer to autumn or from winter to spring) is one of them. That’s why we’re going to take advantage of the fact that summer is coming to an end to give you some ideas with which you can organize the children’s wardrobe.

Order is a fundamental issue, especially when it comes to children’s rooms. Arrange your things, facilitate that it is they themselves who can keep them in order, is very important. Keep in mind that, as the experts explain, if you help them access their clothes and belongings, and give them the responsibility of keeping them in good condition, you’ll be boosting his independence and self-esteem.
That’s why we’re going to get down to work, and go over some important ideas that will help us to reinterpret the children’s closet. That way we’ll get it ready for the coming fall season.
Optimise space in children’s wardrobes
When it comes to tidying up our closets, most of us strive to try to multiply the available space to save. And it’s logical, since we don’t always have the breadth we’d like in the closets.
Beyond the fact that the available centimetres are what they are, there are some ideas to optimise space and make the most of it. Think of the clothes your son has, in its size and what it occupies, and you’ll see how you find the best way to place it.
In this regard, it is important that adapt the wardrobe to the children’s clothes, smaller than adults. That’s why you may need to place bars at different heights, dividers inside drawers, boxes or baskets, etc. Be careful to measure the voids well before buy accessories for the interior. You can even draw a scheme to help you organize the space inside the children’s closet.
Sort clothes and accessories
Once you have thought about how you are going to use the space your wardrobe offers, it is time to classify the children’s clothes. I’m sure you’ve saved a lot of clothes that are too small for them – they’re growing at a dizzying speed!
Now is the time to separate clothes into groups: the one that no longer serves them and you are going to donate or lend, the one that cannot be used and has to be thrown away, the one that you can save for next year, etc. Classify garments and place them in properly identified boxes. Do the same with footwear and accessories.
At your height
There are certain garments that have been hang on the wardrobe bar to keep them in order. This is the case with dresses, shirts, jackets and coats. It is best to place them in groups.
If you want to make it easier for children to take the clothes themselves, you can to install a folding bar. That way they won’t have trouble reaching for their clothes. There are other ways to multiply the sense of order and harmony within the children’s closet. They consist, for example, in putting all the hangers the same, and in placing the garments by colours, within each group.
Other spaces to hang things are the coat racks. Putting a coat rack at the child’s height is a good idea for him to get involved in the order of his room. You can use it to hang school bags, scarves, etc.
Boxes or shelves?
In them the folded garments are stored, such as T-shirts, sweatshirts, pants, etc. I prefer drawers to shelves because they contain better clothes and it is easier to keep order. If your child’s closet has shelves and shelves instead of drawers, you can place baskets or boxes in them to organize garments.
A good idea for optimise drawer space is to fold and place the garments vertically. This way you have a first view of all the garments and it is easier to find them.
Set aside a special place for underwear and pajamas. Since these children’s garments are usually small, you will need separators or small boxes. They’ll help you organize the inside of the drawer.
Up and down
The top and bottom of the wardrobe offer you great storage and tidying possibilities.
As far as the attic is concerned, it’s a space reserved for things that aren’t used much. Please note that children will not have access to this area. You can use it to put in boxes the clothes that are not yet going to put on, or the clothes of another season. Also if you’ve bought them clothes that aren’t worth it yet. It is a way to have these garments at hand and not forget that they exist, for when the time comes.
On the other hand, at the bottom of the children’s wardrobe you can place a shoe rack. So the little ones can put on their own without any problems.
