Kids' Closets

A kid's closet can often look like a disaster area -- shoes strewn everywhere, dirty laundry piling up, and don't even think about finding a place for storing old school projects...until now. These ideas should help keep all the stuff under wraps.

Clever Closet for Kids

Turn a closet into a mini dressing room by mounting a shelf with hooks for hats, coats, and collectibles and placing a small bookshelf underneath. On the door, a shoe organizer frees up floor space, while a miniature clothing rack makes it convenient to set out the next day's outfits.

This closet has as much personality as your kid with its colorful fabric drape and artwork. Outfitted with plenty of drawers, hanging rods, pegs, and cubbies, this closet serves as Stuff Central for the bedroom it belongs to.

Bargain Closet Refresh

Win the daily battle for order in your child's room by outfitting a closet with totable bins, roll-in shelving, and reachable baskets that make a game of putting things away. Make sure high-use items are within your child's grasp.

Sized for Two

Adjustable shelving and rods make it easy to create a closet system that will grow with your kids. Small children generally need very little hanging space and they'll appreciate access to shoes on low shelves at floor level.

Single-Door Closet Redo

In this single-door closet, a simple self-assembled shelving unit -- a kit purchased from a home center -- provides loads of adjustable space for folded items, while also accommodating boxes and baskets for more. An easy-to-install bar offers hanging space for clothes, with room below for a laundry basket.

How to Organize Your Closet

Sharing a closet requires skillful planning. Stackable, self-assembled storage units from a home center have adjustable cubbies and shelves for shoes or folded clothing. On the high shelves, baskets and bins store linens, seasonal items, or sports equipment.

Kids' Closets

A small square closet was enhanced by the addition of shelves along with two small hanging areas. Clear plastic bins turn open shelving into more organized storage. Drawers on the left are not deep, so that clothing stays neat and easy to find.
