The Organised Wardrobe ~ Some “Pinspiration”

 As the sorting, culling and crying comes to an end, I am ready to start organising the clothes that do fit the kids.   I am lucky enough to have both shelves and hanging space in their wardrobes.  But I could always do with some pinspiration as to how to keep the space ORGANISED!

This looks very similar to the ELFA storage system from Howards storage world. Such a clever personalised storage system.  Love those clear drawer and itsy bitsy hanging racks!

Those gorgeous baskets would be great for underwear, socks, singlets, hats, togs…you know those small items that always look messy?

This is an easy one to imitate as I have seen this exact unit at IKEA!  Its great because once again it makes use of the space under hanging clothes by using drawers and baskets.  It could also be used in a room that does not have a built in wardrobe!

This is very inxpensive and yet very effective way to organise a wardrobe, especially for a little one and if you don’t have drawers.

Two siblings in one room?  This would be perfect!  It even has a spot for shoes!

Why should the kids have all the fun, oops I mean organised wardrobe space.  Totally unrealistic but worth a dream and drool. 

What’s the purpose of all this “pinspiration”?  Most of these set ups are unrealistic ad expensive but they offer some great ideas.  Heres what I am taking form these pictures.

1.  Use the space under childrens hanging clothes.  Childrens clothes are short and this leaves a lot of space under clothes, a great spot for some drawers, baskets or even adding another clothes rail.

2.  Little items are best stored in baskets or containers.

3.  Some items are best stored on shelves, if you don’t have shelves the hanging organisers are perfect.

4.  Coathangers of the same colour make the wardrobe look less cluttered.  As does a huge cull of what your children wear!  None of these wardrobes are overflowing with clothes!

5.  Neatly folded clothes costs you nothing and looks amazingly neat and tidy.

So now I need baskets, coathangers, neatly folded clothes and a few hours of uninterrupted time.  Not quite sure how that last will happen with my Pigeon Pair around!  Stay tuned!

  2. Oh, that first one made my ovaries explode! 😀 The boys one is awesome. We’ve just moved our boys into the same room, and while we’re ok at this stage for room, it’d be amazing to have it look that good – and somewhere for their freaking shoes!

    That last one…IN MY DREAMS!!!! Having enough clothes to fill it, that is!

  3. I love looking at organised wardrobes. I know that I will never have organised wardrobes in my house like that. Until my children move out. And then I will have no need for wardrobes like that.

  4. love the colours pink and green they fit so nice together 🙂
    The last picture the colours (pastel wow! But still looks great 🙂

  5. You are speaking my love language LOL – i loved all of these – thanks for sharing. I love the 2nd photo and the one of the shared bedroom – really doable to recreate in some way for sure.

  6. I’m drooling…. I really must do something about the kids’ wardrobe. Some of those hanging shelvie thingies would be great…

  7. OMG! I never thought kids wardrobes could make me so happy! I love all your pins! Good luck finding the time to organise your kids wardrobes. That is what I find the trickiest. They always have to help, and it I usually more of a hindrance!

  8. oooh I long to have an organised wardrobe… just one… anywhere in my house. Actually I’d settle for a wardrobe that had a door on it at the moment LOL One day though… one day.

  9. Am loving these! We have so much organising to do with our wardrobes here.

  10. Oh wowsas! Im in love with that last one!! all those shoes, I want it with the contents!!!! and the first one is great for the kiddos!

  11. They are all so inspiring Larissa! Just want i needed considering we are heading to ikea tomorrow!!

  12. Sigh…I had my kids’ wardrobe all sorted. But each time I do that, they “unsort” it AGAIN!! But, looking at your pins…I can dream for them to stay that way if I ever manage to have them that organised.

  13. That is just awesome. How I would love to have a wardrobe like that! Wow!

  14. I am just in the process of orgaising Little T’s wardrobe in our new place – thanks for such great ideas…

  15. I dream of having organised wardrobes! In all three built in robes in our house, all there is is a shelf at the top and a rod for hanging. Not nearly practical enough. Love that Ikea one though…thinking I might gut the insides and start again. Thanks for sharing.
