Top tips for a tidy nursery

February 1, 2022How to, Lifestyle, New Collections

Spring may be on its way out, but the need to clean feels never-ending. Whether you are expecting your first baby or forever picking up after your toddler, finding the right storage solution can make all the difference to the space you share with your family. For easy inspiration, we’ve rounded up our favourite products that avoid mess and control clutter.

Go for simple storage bags

When it comes to storing away your children’s things, a storage bag is a good place to start. Sturdy enough to hold everything together but soft enough to fold away when you’re not using them, bags are a flexible way to manage storage – especially in small spaces. If your cupboard space is limited, use storage bags to tidy away your kids’ blankets, robes and cushions. For a simple style, a neutral-toned storage bag can even look chic in your living room. Our rainbow spot bag can add a pop of colour to neutral nurseries, while our quilted velvet storage will sit back perfectly in any space. 

Stick to tradition

Traditional and timeless, a toy box is a safe bet for children’s storage. An item with classic design is more likely to stand the test of time in your child’s room as they grow up. After all, it doesn’t matter how old you are, you will always need storage! Look for beautifully crafted toy boxes made from 100% wood like this carved star toy box, and it’s available in pink, grey and white. The best bit about a toy box? You can literally close the lid on their mess!

Clear your surfaces

For the small bits and pieces that quickly become clutter, try a small bowl or mini storage bag. Think mini toy cars, building blocks and little accessories. If you’re looking to keep your storage style cohesive, choose a mini bag that matches your larger options – like this adorable pink polka dot design. Decorative trunks are a modern way to keep mess contained, they look great styled in a nursery and can be closed to keep clutter at bay. For a classic trunk style we have pink and blue styles available or for fun themed nurseries we love these rainbow and under the sea inspired trunk sets.

Stay on theme

If your little one’s nursery has a specific theme, choose storage with a complimentary design that will keep everything cohesive. Whether your kids are little performers, enjoy embarking on woodland adventures, are obsessed  by dinosaurs or prefer something simple like pretty florals, we have the perfect storage solution for their rooms. We find when your child loves their storage, that it’s much easier to encourage tidy up time. 

Whatever age your children are, we know how difficult it is to control the chaos of toys, clothes and all of their bits and pieces. If you follow any of our tips, don’t forget to tag us in your photos on social media so we can see how you use and style your storage.
