Small Space/Big Storage Idea
Nurseries are often tight quarters. Make the most of the space you have with built-ins. This handy corner cabinet provides both hidden storage for the not-so-cute necessities and open shelves for showing off baby's favorite toys. Design by HGTV fan littlecrowninteriors.
Ordered by Size
Organize baby's duds with paper luggage tags. Label each tag with the corresponding size or season to make finding just the right outfit child's play. Design by HGTV fan annehayes.
Add Multipurpose Pieces
This armoire, adjacent to baby's changing table, is a handy place to store junior's clothes. Later, it could provide storage for a TV, stereo, books or video games. Design by HGTV fan 11051402.
Low bookshelves within easy reach of a toddler's hands make playtime more accessible. Cute, fabric covered bins keep toys stylishly contained when not in use. Design by HGTV fan jak1975.
Pretties on Display
Everything needn't be stashed out of sight for a room to be organized. A toddler's favorite frocks hung on satin hangers add a sweet touch to this little girl's room. Design by HGTV fan SavannahSkye.
Instead of closet doors, which could pinch little fingers, HGTV fan CentsationalGirl opted for a perfectly girly pink velvet curtain, which can be pulled back to provide access to favorite books and toys or drawn to conceal clutter.
This toddler's playroom is kept neat with an expansive bookcase filled with colorful bins. Toys and books each have their own designated spot, making after-play cleanup a snap.
Make Organization Easy
Designer Holly Mathis creatively eliminates cries of, "Mom, where are my socks?" with a chalkboard dresser. Low enough that her boys can reach the drawers, the chalk labels make getting dressed as simple as "sock 1" plus "sock 2."
Tell Clutter to Walk the Plank

Multi-Kid & Multipurpose
Designer Erica Islas created a kids' space that combines nap time and playtime with dual, loft-style beds above a no-adults-allowed play area where toys can be stashed out of sight. Steps leading up to the beds serve dual purpose as hidden drawers.
Tuck It Under the Bed
Keeping kids organized can be fun (and colorful!) according to designer Susie Fougerousse. Her Tip: "With a little imagination your child's belongings can be tucked away neatly in storage that works and looks great too, like these vintage-inspired wood crates."
Studytime Storage Solution
A cheery robin's egg blue paint color and three-dimensional blossoms add whimsy while floating shelves provide plenty of storage for HGTV fan mblanchette's pre-teen daughter.
Designer Sarah Richardson creates a sweet getaway for one lucky demoiselle. Using a vintage vanity in place of a bedside table provides pretty storage plus a spot for freshening up.
A color scheme of sunny yellow and soft gray are oh-so-stylish for a hip teen, while underbed drawers and floating shelves keep this bedroom spic and span. Design by HGTV fan dodi.
Mirrored built-ins framing the bed in this very chic teen's bedroom provide ample storage and add to the room's dreamy style. Design by HGTV fan Peggy Fuller.
