Children's Storage Solutions from Minene (Plus Your Chance to WIN)

As we are in the process of decorating Minxy's and Jamster's bedrooms we've been on the look out for new furniture, beds and accessories to get some inspiration. I'm fairly clueless when it comes to things like design, I could certainly do with all the help I can get, and although the Mr is a handy man at heart he doesn't have an eye for interiors either! I thought it would therefore be the best option to ask the Mini Mes exactly what they want and to just go with that. After all, I know how excited they are about having a more attractive space of their own and it makes them feel involved with the transformations.

Jamster is after a modern skater theme with cool graffiti style artwork whereas Minxy is seeking a more feminine and classic look with floral designs, floaty drapes and big fluffy cushions. Regardless of the style, we definitely need more storage for their belongings and Minene stepped in to help in that department. They sent us some pretty baskets to kick-start our projects and these have already been very useful.







The smaller of the two is ideal for placing upon a table top or windowsill to store essentials like hair brushes, remote controls, DVDs, books, lip gloss etc for easy access, whereas the larger one can be used for laundry, bedding, toys or games. The strong handles make both easy to transport as and when required and Minxy loves the quilted look with flowers on the outside and the red polka dots inside for a nice contrast.

As a mum, I really appreciate the fact that these are machine washable so they can be kept clean at all times! If her friends are on the way over we can quickly scoop up anything laying around her room and throw it in to hide away which is useful, although thankfully she is naturally quite tidy.





There are matching boxes and cubes available so I think we might need to add those to our collection once her room is complete. It's possible I will purchase the same in a different print for Jamster - he particularly likes the stars and grey chevron versions.





Minene also have a great range of clothing, feeding equipment and gifts on the website and they have kindly provided some baby items to give away to my followers!

  6. We have lots of under bed storage plastic boxes, each labeled with the size clothing in them. In my daughters wardrobe we have square plastic boxes each with similar toys in, so music toys in one, Duplo in another etc. This way she has one box of toys out at a time, and we get a different box out each day, so she doesn't get bored.

  145. I personally prefer hard case storage boxes instead of soft bags. Although I would have to agree that it makes a good idea for a kids room, especially when the likelihood of the container getting dirty is very, very high! Haha! A cloth container would be so much easier to throw into the wash don't you think!
