Try replacing a bottom drawer with a wire basket to make contents easier to see.

If there is room, consider adding open shelving or hanging cubes that allow for items to be easily reachable for your little ones. Hang the shelves at a height that makes toys and clothing accessible for kids — this will also make it simpler to put things away. Consider placing a few baskets on the shelves to better organize small items, like hats, gloves or socks.

Clear containers with colored lids are always handy for organizing a child's closet. The various colors will enable children to more easily identify the contents of each container. Clothing rods are also a simple addition to a kid's closet, especially if space allows for two rods to be hung. That way, clothes that are worn the most frequently can be placed on the bottom rod, making it easier for kids to reach their favorite t-shirts or pair of pants.

The best way to maintain organization in any child's closet is to make the space kid-friendly, keeping clothing and toys within reach, and allowing room for growth throughout the years.
