Christina's Corner // Shoe Organization for Kids!

If you have been following along on my blog for a while, you know that one of my favorite topics for discussion is shoe storage. Shoes are notoriously difficult to store and without a proper space for organization, they are often cluttered and hard to access. I have shown you the benefits of a Modular Closet system many times and that includes the ability to design amazing shoe walls for any closet. But one thing we haven’t discussed is how to organize kid’s shoes.

How Do You Keep Your Child’s Closet Organized? 

How many times have you walked into your child’s room and seen shoes absolutely everywhere? Pairs are separated and mixed in with toys and other shoes. It can become a mess very easily.

When we talk about keeping a kid’s closet organized, having a specific spot for each type of item is incredibly important. Not only for storage purposes, but also so that your kids can help keep their space clean. I really think that keeping your kids involved in the organization process is an important step in teaching them how to be organized. This definitely applies to shoe storage. Having a designated spot for your kids shoes in their room or closet will help them learn where to put them when they are done wearing them. It doesn’t have to be a full shoe wall, it can be a few shelves or even a basket, it just needs to be an easily definable and accessible space. 

I Suggest Some Shelves.

Of course, you can find a storage solution for your kids shoes that works best for you.

However, I have found that a few shelves at the base of the closet is the easiest place for kids to reach and keep organized. Modular Closet’s Solid Shelves are perfect for this job. 

I had the opportunity to work with Ava and Alexis McClure in their closet and they had their shoe shelves at the base of their closet. They had plenty of storage to house their shoes and because they are situated at the foot of the organization system, the girls will never have to worry about not being able to reach or see their shoes.

Take the Time To Teach Them Organization.

I know that getting your kids involved in organization can seem like a daunting task, but if you take the time to sit down with them and explain why staying organized is important, it may help the process. I am not guaranteeing that it will work all the time or that your kids will transform into mini Marie Kondos overnight. But I believe it is very much worth the effort to instill organization into your kids so that they grow up to be clutter-mindful at the very least.
