Space Saving Ideas For Kids Bedrooms
Kids bedrooms can be quite chaotic to say the least! With copious amounts of toys, learning resources, essential furniture and more; the space in a child's bedroom is very quickly accounted for.
We know that space is a very precious thing in any room, but even more so in a child's bedroom. Lets face it, not all children tidy up after themselves, so anything we can do to make it easier for them to do so is worth a try.
That’s why we’ve put together this handy guide with some space saving ideas for kids bedrooms.
Bunk beds are the bed of dreams for children. Traditional bunk beds are the perfect space saver if you have a bedroom that two children share. They make the most of the height of the room and free up floor space.
However, there are now many varieties of bunk beds, which can complement the other furniture that you have in the room.
Many bunk beds come with extra storage space which can help to keep the room tidy and provide children with a unique place to store their belongings.
Some bunk beds even have built-in desks, which remove the need for chunkier items of furniture in the room. They can conveniently be stored away when not in use, by simply pushing them back into the bed.

Use space underneath the bed
Floor space is very precious in kids bedrooms; it’s the building area for trains, lego, dolls houses and hours of fun.
In a small bedroom, you can make the use of space underneath a bed, even if it is a normal style low-rise bed. There is normally a small gap between the floor and the bed, which is valuable storage space.
Use trays on wheels, or convert a mattress base with wheels into a toy play area for drawing, train sets or other flat laying games. This provides an extra space to play, which is easily stored away to keep the room tidy when not in use. As your child grows, this play space can be used as additional under bed storage.
Combine furniture uses
Saving space in kids bedrooms can be achieved by combining the uses of furniture items. This frees up space for other items of furniture, storage, or for extra space to play.
As well as a place to sleep, sofa beds can also double up as a comfortable place to rest, read or play games. They also provide extra floor space when the bed is stored away; perfect for a child who likes to have friends over for sleepovers.
All in one kids furniture are highly functional items which are also fantastic space savers. Our Ultimo Collection for example, features this high-quality all in one bed with a bed and desk combined. With no need to clear the desk for the bed to be unfolded, this option is a great multi-tasking solution.
Swap bookshelves for floating shelves
Some are only strong enough for light books, but other wall shelving units can hold books, ornaments, toys and more. Make sure your floating shelves are strong enough to withhold the items you plan to store on them.
Wall shelves are also a great way to create a feature wall in a smaller space; one which is both stylish and functional.
Space saving toy chest
Storage boxes are great for keeping toys and accessories neat and tidy, in one place. Clothing or bedding can also be stored away and kept clean in these storage boxes.
Whatever you choose to store in them, they don’t take up much space but can hold a lot of items. They can also be decorated to suit the style of the room, for example with a teddy bear and blanket, or some decorative cushions to finish.
