The 5 golden rules of children's dressing
The layout of the dressing room for your child will obviously depend on the surface you have, as well as your budget. The offers available today from manufacturers are such that a dressing room can be fully personalized. There are, however, a few tips that apply to all configurations. Here are 5 golden rules to follow if you want to arrange a dressing room for your child.
1. Clothes hangers to make life easier
Even if your child is rather organized and careful, storing clothes is not necessarily an easy habit to acquire. The most sensitive point concerns the folding of clothes. Generally children have a hard time folding their clothes correctly and their wardrobe can quickly end up looking like a mountain of textiles. To avoid setting the bar too high, start with a dressing room where the place of the hangers is essential. If folding is a problem, putting it on a hanger is much easier. The child can then organize without asking the help of an adult.
2. Abuse wired baskets
In the same vein, the wired baskets will facilitate the learning of storage. This system allows you to be able to find the place of everything at a glance. The child will then know which basket contains socks or belts without having to open all the drawers or pull all the bins. Same thing for storage. Last good news: wired baskets are fashionable, whether in color or copper for example, they will work for babies as well as for adolescents.
3. Colors to gain autonomy
If the wired baskets are not suitable for aesthetic reasons for example, other solutions are available to you. Another way to visually organize a child's wardrobe is to use a color system that allows them to find themselves without asking for your help. You can thus associate a color with a type of clothing (such as underwear) or with a function (such as sportswear).
4. A concerted organization
If you do not want to tear your hair out when you put the laundry away, it is better to decide with your child beforehand on the place of each thing. By imposing a storage system that would be your own, you risk facing a permanent mess and business losses such as orphan socks. Decide together (when he is old) how the clothes should be stored and where they will fit. This joint decision will give him self-confidence and allow you to better pass the ranking obligations.
5. Responsible storage (or not)
The big question attached to the children's wardrobe is that of cleaning and storage. How do you keep your child's closet in an acceptable condition? As with his bedroom, the solution is first of all in communication, but everything also depends on age. When he is a baby, you will naturally be responsible for tidying up. Over the years, it is up to you to decide which responsibilities your child can bear depending on his age and maturity. In adolescence, he can be entirely responsible for the organization of his dressing room but it is together that you will have to take stock of tasks and obligations.
How to change the wardrobe with the age of the child
From the layout of the dressing room, it is important to choose modular elements that can change with the age of your child. Fortunately, most of the storage systems on the market are modular and can therefore be changed over time. Plan for example that the clothes hangers for the hangers will have to be readjusted so that they follow your child's growth.
Dressing room for girl or boy: does that change anything?
A priori, nothing distinguishes a boy's wardrobe from a girl's wardrobe but it will be necessary to take into account the changes or certain specificities that may occur, especially during adolescence. Some girls will for example be attracted to jewelry and we can therefore provide a space dedicated to necklaces or bracelets. The more athletic boys may need special accommodation to store their equipment. Finally, more than sex, it is your child's individuality that will shape the organization of their wardrobe: it's up to you to let them do according to their tastes and desires!
