How To Make The Most Out Of The Space In Your Child's Bedroom
Like all parents, you want your little one to enjoy their childhood to the upmost fullest. You want them to have as much uninterrupted fun as possible, for them to build memories, and to feel safe and secure in their own little space. So in order to make all of this a reality, they would love to have a bedroom of their own. However, the issue of limited space is one slight hiccup that you may not have foreseen.
Here at Apace we are experts in space-saving solutions and making the most out of smaller spaces. We’re not ones for being greedy so, we’ve compiled all our best hints and tips to help you make the most out of your child’s bedroom space.
Space Saving Furniture
As a parent you will be faced with endless decisions and in order to sail on through, these decisions need to be smart ones! Naturally, the first thoughts of starting your child’s bedroom is to begin with some furniture. So, we’ll start here too!
One great idea for optimising and increasing the amount of floor space available in a child’s bedroom, is to buy a High Sleeper Bed. In addition to adding style, they also provide the perfect space to create that all important secret den. Practical beds, such as our Warwick High Sleeper really are the masters of squeezing a lot of functionality into the framework. They can give you the option of having a desk tucked underneath, storage space and even a sleepover solution.

Ultimately, raised beds offer a wide range of advantages, and with so many styles to choose from, you’re sure to find something to suit your room, budget and your little one’s taste.
Another great tip is to utilise storage units. Instead of sprawling across valuable floor space, have you thought about going up, up and away? A tall unit, such as our Milne Tall Bookshelves, will make the most of every inch of your little one’s bedroom. They cleverly incorporate room to display treasures, shelves for books, surfaces that act as bedside tables and reading lights. Talk about multitasking! Additionally, these storage units can help to quickly tidy at the end of the day, which in turn helps your little one to relax before bed. This is a great habit to incorporate as part of the bedtime routine

Wonderful Wall Storage
Following on from this, a great way to maximise space is to take advantage of the walls. Wall storage is another practical option which can even be used in addition to storage units and under-bed storage. By creating wall-mounted shelves, you can free up huge amounts of floor space in your children’s bedroom. We love shelves for storing books, toys, photo albums and arts and crafts materials, all of which looks stylish on display too. Additionally, with bookshelves, you will be able to effectively help your children with organisation! Why not get a little creative by adding toys and ordering them alphabetically or in size order!
Storage Solutions You Can Make Yourself
The need for space-saving has sky rocketed over recent years but with it so has creative solutions. The new trend in all things space-saving is ‘upcycling’. Let’s face it, your children’s toys can pile up so fast, in fact it would be easier to climb Mount Everest than to clean up all their mess. You swear that if your bare foot steps on one more LEGO, your kids will be sentenced to playing with rocks and grass out in the garden for the rest of their life. But before you start filling bags with toys, board games, and dolls and throw them all out like yesterday’s bin bag, why not consider a creative alternative. What if you could upcycle some of those once-beloved but now outgrown toys into something that’s actually pretty cool? By carrying out a quick Google search for upcyling, you will bring up endless suggestions for your old toys!
