March 6, 2017
This summer was one to remember but as we near the end of the sunny season, it's now time to start thinking about back-to-school preparations. What better place to start then often overlooked areas like school lockers? Each year, you want your children to stay organized and keep up with all of their work. One way to help keep them organized is to encourage them to create an amazing locker, where they can keep books, completed work and study notes when not in use.
An organized locker helps them quickly grab the items they need throughout the day and at the end of the day when they’re ready to head home. Locker accessories are one of the best ways to make the most of the available space. Lockers are generally not very wide, which can make it challenging to keep everything organized. Here are a few tips that can help take a locker from dull to impressive.
Add Shelves to Unlock a Locker's Full Storage Potential
For lockers with plenty of vertical space available, the best way to maximize space is to add shelves to create additional horizontal space. Tossing books haphazardly into lockers, one on top of the other can damage them. You want kids to line them up neatly so that each title is clearly visible. By adding one or two shelves to their lockers, your kids can place each book, folder and notebook on a flat surface.
Additional shelving provides space for other items such as band instruments, lunch boxes and sporting goods. With an organized locker, your children have a place to store everything that they need throughout the day. This is more efficient than lugging around items they don’t need and potentially losing things as they go. Having enough shelves is a great start to a locker that wows.
Take Advantage of Locker Organizational Items
Books and binders aren't the only items finding a home in your children's lockers during classes. There are any number of loose pens, pencils, paper clips and other items that can cause a locker to look messy. You can cut down on this mess by providing a place for these items to be stored when not in use. A mesh box or a pencil cup provides a haven for small items that your children keep in their lockers without leaving it looking messy and disorganized. If the locker is metal, you can free up more space inside by using magnetic tape to attach these accessories to the door.
Watch your children proudly transform a bland locker into one that represents their individual personalities through the use of locker decorations. From wallpaper to a beaded curtain, there are lots of items to choose from that will help jazz up this space. You can pick up carpeting for the bottom of the lockers or dry erase boards so that your children can write reminders where they'll see them in between classes.
All of these decorations come in bright colors and popular patterns so that your children can find a style that suits them best. By adding one or two decorations to a locker, your children will take pride in the space, and this encourages them to keep the space organized and clean. You can even find a decoration to hang from the top of locker, such as a sparkling chandelier or a disco ball.
It's easier for your children to excel if they stay focused and organized during the school year. A great place to start with all of this organization is their lockers. Get started on the locker of their dreams and you’ll be right on course to give them a strong start to the school year. With great ideas and cool products to choose from, helping your children decorate their lockers is bound to be a fun and easy task that you’ll cherish memories of for a long time to come.
