Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 15, 2011
Today, A's Kustom Closets, the top custom closet designer in Orange County, announced the release of their guidelines, aimed at helping parents get their kids organized for the new school year.
Keeping an adult’s closet organized is difficult enough, but children’s rooms and closets present special challenges. Children’s rooms are usually small, often shared, and generally lack built-in storage. Their rooms are often used to store out-of-season and outgrown clothing, sports equipment, school supplies, games, and toys. That’s why children’s closets can greatly benefit from closet organizers. Kids can’t stay organized when the closet is crammed and drawers are overflowing.
Before parents buy a closet organizer, however, they should sort, store, and simplify. Sort belongings, such as toys or school supplies, into groups. Store out-of-season clothes or surplus toys. Simplify by removing stained or torn clothing, clothes that don’t fit anymore, and discarded or broken toys.
Once that’s done and parents have determined storage needs and ideas, here are a few tips to help homeowners choose the right closet organizer:
1. Lowered clothing rods are ideal for small children.
2. Floor-level open containers are useful for toys, open plastic baskets can store socks and underwear, and drawers will help store folded clothes. Shoe racks, a built-in hamper, wire bins for sports equipment, and hooks for backpacks and jackets will also make life easier.
3. A child needs a dedicated space to do homework. Even a closet can be transformed into a homework space by removing the doors and adding a desk top, drawer units, storage bins, and a good desk lamp.
4. If the closet is small, go vertical utilizing wall space.
5. Older kids can utilize higher closet shelves to store their belongings.
A well-designed custom closet system will grow with a child from infancy into their teen years.
