Tips and Tricks for a More Organized Home

Organization has always been an important part of life and lately it has become an even more popular topic. Between concepts like minimalism, the “Marie Kondo Method” and all of us spending more time indoors, now is a great time to look at organization in our homes. We will take you room by room and discuss ways to better organize your spaces.

The Kitchen

Staying organized in the kitchen is critical for an effective cooking experience especially if you are cooking with someone else. Cabinet accessories such as drawer dividers, cutlery trays, utensil bins, and knife holders are just the start. Pairing food storage bins with rollout drawers in a pantry can keep everything neat but also prevent food getting lost in the back and going bad.

Having zones for specific tasks can also help you organize your kitchen space. Are you a baker? Maybe you have a specific cabinet that is dedicated to baking supplies.

Consider tray dividers in a cabinet to store cookie sheets and pans vertically. It makes pulling them out easy and finding the right one as well. These tray dividers work best in base cabinets as well as in the upper portion of tall cabinets.

Since the kitchen is the main hub of the house, implementing a command center or message area can help families stay organized with schedules and daily events. This could be in the form of a desk area (either sit down or standing) located in the kitchen or even a dedicated tall cabinet.

The Bathroom

Soaps, shampoo, lotions, oh my! It’s easy to be crowded out of your bathroom with all of your products. Products you use daily should be close at hand but not cluttered on the counter and there are a few options available that do just that. Medicine cabinets are a great solution for smaller items such as face creams, toothpaste, and lotions. For taller items such as hairspray, makeup, and other toiletries, linen closets, cabinets above a toilet, and drawers are a great solution.
If your vanity is small and you need more storage, we can utilize the sink cabinet better, by adding drawers with a “U” shape cut out to go around the plumbing. If space allows, you can also install a linen cabinet into a bathroom that provides ample storage for extra linens and larger bottles of hair products. There are also specialty pullouts to safely store hair tools such as curling irons, straightening irons, and hair dryers. We can custom design dividers or you can purchase decorative trays or baskets to help keep your items neatly put away and organized.

The Laundry Room

Your laundry room is the hardest working room in your house. It not only houses the washer and dryer but is often serving double duty as storage space or mud room. Coat and shoe storage, winter gear, and so much more is often shoved in your laundry room. Adding cabinets next to your washer and dryer to house laundry items just makes sense. Hooks and cubbies for coats, shoes, and backpacks will help you with your morning rush out the door.

Closets

Closets are not just a hanging rod anymore. Adding cabinetry to your closet, such as drawers, shelves, shoe racks and hanging space, helps keep all our clothes organized, visible, and at the ready.

Accessories are always a challenge, coming in so many shapes and sizes but drawer organizers for your belts, ties, and jewelry will help keep everything in its place.

Whether you have already started or are just starting, organizing your home can seem like a daunting task at first.
