Versatile kids cubbies

Versatile kids cubbies

27.25” x 30”, this item consists of twelve spacious kids cubbies. It can be used as a storage piece in a bedroom or a learning environment. The light wood finish makes it a practical choice for different decor styles, contemporary ones in particular.

Designer Advice:

If their designated room is on the small side, opt for kids cubbies in white or a light wood finish. This will help inspire an airier sense of space. Darker wood and colors, on the other hand, run the risk of reinforcing a cramped feel. The former would however be a more natural choice in nostalgic interiors.

This piece consists of a versatile birch veneer design measuring 17.75” x 48”. It includes ten cubbies with yellow, green, red, blue, and white bins. Plus, it takes practicality to the next level thanks to its five hooks for coats and accessories.

Designer Advice:

Kids cubbies with bins are a more logical choice in schools and learning environments. They make it easier for children to keep their own belongings tidy and in one space. At the same time, they give them the option of carrying the entire bin with them. Much more practical than having to pop back whenever they need a specific item!

Designer Advice:

A mixture of cubbies and bins is a practical choice in kids bedrooms. Encourage them to use the latter for their smaller and messiest toys and items. The open shelves, on the other hand, could showcase a smaller selection of pieces or their favorite toys.

Buying Guide

A kid’s coat cubby needs to be large enough for a child’s coat, lunchbox, shoes, and other accoutrements. However, it also needs to be small enough that their little arms and hands can navigate the space comfortably.

When sourcing children’s coat cubbies, we’ve found that an approximate size of 20” long by 12-14” wide by 24” tall is the perfect size for young children to use effectively.

Traditional wood is still the best material for a kid’s coat cubby. This is because it’s sturdy, reliable, safe, and sustainable.

Pine, in particular, is a popular choice when it comes to kids’ furniture as it’s one of the most budget-friendly types of wood. Plus, it paints well, allowing you to choose fun colorful options for this new kid’s coat cubby.
