I’ve been searching for ways to make the boys’ rooms more efficient and easy to keep clean. I think I’m slowly making progress towards my ideal room for each of them.
Kailer is 9. He enjoys playing video games (especially MineCraft), Lego and Cryptozoology. The boy is a mad scientist in the making. His ideal room would have a Lego table, labeled storage and a cat tree for his “Alley” cat. He was diagnosed with ADHD 2 years ago, so now I realize why his room is a chaotic mess ALL the time – hence my need for him to have labeled storage 🙂 So I really need to be creative when it comes to designing his room. Here’s what I’ve got so far:
- built-in bed in the closet, with storage under
- Lego table, storage bins with lids underneath
- a dresser with labeled drawers: pants, T-shirts, undies, etc.
- a personalized cat tree for Alley
- a cork board to hang all of his MineCraft art
- curtains instead of his blinds
I’m going to try really hard to keep my budget for this about $150 or less
Kaleb is 3. He enjoys looking at books, super heroes and pretending. I won’t have to do a lot in his room. He already has a loft bed, which I plan to double as a fort. He needs a new dresser, as he prefers to pick out his own clothes. I want to use a lot of primary colors in this room, but not on the walls, as we’re planning to sell in 2-3 years. So, here’s my to-do list in here.
- curtain rod and material to make the fort
- reusable wall stickers to add color
- glow in the dark stars for the ceiling
- a new dresser that’s easier for him to open
- material to make a sack for all his stuffies
- toy storage solutions
My budget for this room is $50 or less.
