My Dream Home: 11 Easy Storage and Organizing Ideas for Every Room

 DagmarBleasdale.com: 11 Easy Storage and Organizing Ideas for Every Room

My two posts about storage and organizing ideas for your home are hugely popular — I guess many people either need ideas or love organizing as much as I do.

Here are more organizing and storage ideas I’ve found for every room in the house. My Dream Home would have all of these, wouldn’t that be amazing?

Entryway:

Living room/breakfast room/eating nook:

Kids room or craft room:

I like using shoe organizers in several rooms in my house. This one even becomes a window treatment!

Wooden magazine holders screwed to the wall and topped with a shelf create clever storage.

Living room/reading nook:

Stack two inexpensive box shelves on top of each other and offset them for visual interest.

Kitchen:

Repurpose a plate rack to store folders, cook books, or magazines.

A small tension rod can do wonders for storage, here for spices in the kitchen.

Bedroom:

I love this hidden headboard storage! You could do this with any headboard by just moving it off the wall a bit and adding a shelf.

Closets:

Don’t have room for a library in your home? But you do have closets…

Just hang crown molding in a closet and you have instant storage room for all of your shoes. Genius!

Which one of these storage ideas do you love the most?

I just love the entryway storage option and the library in the closet idea. Stumbled this post!

I am drooling over every single one of those organizational ideas. The one of the craft room had me giving out an audible “Ooohhhh!”

I am definitely an organization nut. It just makes life much less hectic. And frankly, things are prettier when color-coded and labeled :)
