Savvy Stor­age

Space-smart ideas for busy kids’ bed­rooms

Living Etc - - DESIGN / PROJECT -

* Where pos­si­ble, stor­age is best built in. It looks bet­ter and, ide­ally, you’ll be able to use the whole floor-to­ceil­ing height and make the best use of your space. Aurore Mar­tial, in­te­rior de­signer and founder of Do­mus Venus

* I rec­om­mend com­bin­ing clothes and toy stor­age in one larger piece – it stream­lines the room, leav­ing more space for play or an­other piece of fur­ni­ture, such as a desk. Vin­tage ar­moires of­ten come in wider sizes, or al­ter­na­tively three-door wardrobes look great and are prac­ti­cal, too. Ur­sula Wes­sel­ingh, in­te­rior de­signer at Room to Bloom

* It’s hard, as you’ll be given so many gifts, but try not to al­low clut­ter to build up in a child’s room. Keep some room to play in – it’s your lit­tle space out­side of the world for you and your chil­dren to en­joy. Lucinda Croft, manag­ing di­rec­tor of Drag­ons of Wal­ton Street
