I’ve finally decided on a storage solution in my boy’s room. I was really getting tired of all the open storage solutions in there. It was rather stressful cleaning his room, because everything was always visible.
This Sunday my husband (and I, I did help) got some Method wall cabinets from Ikea in different sizes. A few years back, I saved a few pictures with kitchen cabinets used in a boy’s room. I loved the solution then, and I haven’t found one quite as good since. So now I guess it was time to put it in to action in my own home.
Another advantage about picking this solution is that I can always style his room according to his age. I’ve been wanting to create some solutions that’ll grow with him. Then I can just change the smaller things in there to fit his age.
This is what the room that inspired me looked like in the beginning. It was pretty much the look I was going for. It’s the perfect way to hide all the toys and clothes, and it adds a much calmer effect to the whole room. The next two photos, I want to show you, are from a styling Riikka and Emma did for the Danish brand ferm living. The room is still the same, but by changing the smaller interior pieces in the room, it looks like a different room. This is the kind of room I would love to work with, when it comes to matching my boy’s age.
So what do you think? Would you ever consider using kitchen wall cabinets in your kids’ room?
I’m in the middle of sorting and putting some of his stuff away. But I’ll show you some pictures when the wall is done. Do remember to check out Espresso Moments on Instagram – I might put up a picture or two there as well.
