When it comes to home organization ideas, we know that there are many ways to keep a home tidy and in order. At Furniture Mall, we like to incorporate beautiful pieces of furniture into our organizational solutions. Read on to see our favorite organization tips and pieces of furniture to help keep your home in order.
Top Home Organization Tips
Keeping a home organized is no easy task. Everyone is busy, and when so many people still working from home, things can start to pile up—especially if you have kids or pets in the house. It is easy for items to end up in unusual or unwanted locations because there is no proper place to store them, and dog and kid toys can quickly clutter your house. Create a home for everything in your house with Furniture Mall’s top home organization tips.
1. Use Storage Bins or Baskets
Storage bins and baskets are a huge organizational trend right now, and for a good reason. It is so easy to put odds and ends in a basket tucked away under a bench, on a shelf, or just on the floor. You can get storage bins in various sizes, shapes, colors, and styles, making them an easy organizational tool for nearly any household.
2. Purchase a Storage Cabinet
If you want to store things in something beautiful, a storage cabinet might be the perfect solution. At Furniture Mall, we carry accent storage cabinets in every style. Many cabinets are used in living rooms, family rooms, hallways, entryways, dining rooms, and bedrooms. Often, storage cabinets contain internal shelving that allows you to store many items in one hidden-away location. You can place decorative pieces on top of the storage cabinet to create more visual interest in your room.
3. Buy a Storage Trunk
Storage trunks are a great way to hold a lot of items in one convenient place. While trunks are traditionally found in bedrooms, many people have started keeping them in entryways and family rooms to keep items out of sight. Trunks can be used to store children’s toys, blankets, shoes, backpacks and purses, and so much more. The versatility of storage trunks—due mostly to their size—makes them an organizational solution worth mentioning on our list. Plus, they can be quite beautiful.
4. Keep Shelves Tidy
Shelving is a great way to add décor to your home while keeping it contained and tidy. Shelves can add visual interest to a wall, but they can start to look messy when they get cluttered or overcrowded—keeping shelves tidy starts with choosing only a select few items to showcase. For example, a large shelf might contain a couple dozen books, a plant, a small statue, and photographs, while a small shelf is a home to just a single photo and a plant.
Shelves can also be added to laundry rooms and pantries for elevated organizational potential. When you add shelving to rooms just for organizational purposes, you can incorporate bins, jars, and other labeled components to create an easy-to-use system.
5. Get Drawer Organizers
Drawer organizers can help you keep your bathrooms, kitchens, and dressers more organized. While drawer organizers often go unseen, sometimes the unseen parts of your home are the most frustratingly messy. With drawer organizers, you can keep towels, toiletries, clothing, and more neatly housed in your drawers and cabinets. Keeping drawers organized will also help you keep items off your countertops, freeing up even more space.
