Home Storage and Organization Made Simple

Organizing your home can seem like a daunting task. But there’s no time like the present to take on that cluttered closet, messy junk drawer or seasonal clothing backlog. Whether you’re looking to tackle the entire house or focus on one specific area, the following tips will help you declutter and organize effectively.

Clean Up Cluttered Closets

One of the first places you might consider reorganizing is the closet. Do you toss items in to clean up common areas, only to discover you have no room left when you need it? Over time, closets can get cluttered, which means less usable space. Whether it’s in the bedroom, hallway or entranceway, cleaning out your closet is a great way to start your home organization project.

Closet Shelving that Maximizes Your Space

Make the most out of the closet space you have with versatile closet solutions. 

Closet storage systems allow you to install shelves and rods in the configuration you want. With shelf tracks, you can configure your shelves at varying heights to suit both small and large spaces. Shelf extension kits let you create space for additional shelves. If you prefer to hang your clothes, look for adjustable closet rods that will fit into any space. 

Consider installing both vertical and horizontal closet storage. This allows you to maximize space and store different types of items in an organized way. Closet organizer kits allow you to create a custom closet with multiple storage units for all types of clothing and accessories.

Manage the Mess with Storage Bins and Baskets

Keep everyday household items organized and easily accessible with storage bins and
baskets. They offer a great solution for all types of accessories, from the play room to the pantry.

Conceal Clutter with Smart and Stylish Storage

Storage baskets are a great way to keep accessories grouped together. From socks to hats and mitts, simply load them in a basket and place them on existing shelves for quick and easy access. Bins and baskets also allow you to fit more items in a smaller space. They make a great addition to a bedroom closet, hallway closet, pantry or laundry room.

Organizing small spaces? Leave No Corner Untouched

Some of the messiest spots in a home are the smallest. Drawers and cupboards can become a resting place for all types of discarded odds and ends. Sort through the jumble of stuff, so it’s easier to find things when you need them.

Declutter Drawers

Organizing small spaces can give you a real sense of accomplishment. Give those small items that clutter up your bathroom vanity or kitchen drawers a designated space. And who knows—there’s a good chance you’ll find that missing key, card or memento you thought you’d lost.  

Drawer organizers come in all shapes and sizes. Choose one for your cosmetics, one for your bathroom essentials and one for your medicine cabinet. Use them in the kitchen for cooking utensils, note pads, keys and all types of everyday items. Drawer organizers are also ideal for storing home office supplies such as pens, papers and more. The options are endless.  

Clear pantry organizers are great for the kitchen. While decorative baskets add style to open spaces, these are ideal for use behind closed doors. They come in different shapes and styles, and make it easy to immediately see what you’re looking for. They are also a good fit for craft rooms, offices and laundry rooms.

Seasonal and Small Space Solutions

If your storage space is limited, consider these handy tips to get more out of less.  

Vacuum Storage Bags compress contents to a smaller size by removing air. This allows them to hold more volume, while taking up less space. The bags are reusable, and help to protect contents from damage while in storage. Use the space-saving design to maximize closet space, or to store clothing and accessories in the off season. They even work well as a travel hack. Choose from regular and hanging styles.

Make the Most of Surface Space

Get creative and use empty surface space to keep everyday items easily at hand.  

  • Get rid of bulky racks and use hooks on the sides of cabinets for pots and pans. Clearing floor space will give the room a more spacious feel 
  • In the bathroom, add extra towel hooks to the door or wall, along with shower caddies to maximize your shower space 
  • Use an over-the-door hanger for your iron and board when it’s not in use
Armed with new ideas, you’re now ready to take on your home storage and organization project. Sort through kitchen cupboards, reorganize the linen closet or toy-proof the bedrooms. Create practical closet solutions, big and small. With the right products and attitude, your home will be clutter-free in no time.
