Easy Tips for Keeping Kid's Media Items Organized
These days, kids often have an extensive collection of media and technology items in their bedrooms. More often than not all of those cords and games end up looking cluttered and disorganized in a kid's bedroom. Instead of leaving everything in a tangled, scattered pile, consider adding a piece of kids furniture that will solve that problem. Here are ideas of some great options for your kid's room.
A Media Center is perfect for this purpose because they are designed to store these types of items. You'll find that some media centers have a look of more open shelving, while others have cabinets and drawers. You can store games and controllers in the drawers to keep them from cluttering the room. With a Media Center, you'll also have shelving where you can store games and DVD consoles, as well as, plenty of space on top for a television.
Classic Looking Media Center - You could go with a more classic look like the Lea Elite Rhapsody Media Cabinet if you have a more traditional type home decor.
Modern Style Media Center - For a more modern way to keep all your child's media items organized consider getting the SouthShore City Live TV Stand.
Your child will love using a desk for media storage in a kid's bedroom. The desk is perfect for a computer and other components such as a printer, external hard drives and more. It will also give you space for printer paper, a mouse pad and other supplies. Having a computer desk for media and technology storage is a really great idea because it will also provide ample workspace for homework and projects. You could also add a hutch on top of the desk to increase the storage capabilities of the area.
- Wrap the cord around the controllers before putting them away. You could keep the controllers in a drawer, a bin or in front or on top of the game console.
- Keep accessories organized within cubbies and boxes that can sit on shelves or in drawers
- Put game cases lined up on a shelf or inside a drawer or in a DVD/Game rack beside the piece of media storage or desk furniture
- If the games need to be mobile, keep them in a CD binder
Tips for Encouraging Proper Clean-Up
Be sure to role model to your child how to take care of all his media and technology by putting things away after the games are over or when a break is taken. Get your child involved in the process of putting everything away neatly in appropriate bins and drawers, and as a learning experience for the younger ones. Stay actively involved in picking everything up until they are old enough to do so on their own.
Set your child up with the space he needs to maintain organization for his technology and media items and help him learn how to keep this area in the bedroom tidy and organized. There are lots of beautiful kids furniture options that will fit your child's bedroom and personality.
