Description

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.

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.
