Perhaps it’s not actually the toys and books that you find cluttering up your kids’ rooms very badly, but rather all of their clothing? Well, the good thing about kids’ clothes is that they’re smaller than adults’ clothing and therefore easier to store in unique, really space efficient ways! Take a look at how Reality Day Dream took full advantage of that by installing some extra shelves and baskets in their kids’ closet after lowering the curtain rod.
