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

by Dagmar Bleasdale on March 29, 2012 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?


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.


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.


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.


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?

It’s very trouble-free to find out any topic on net as compared to books,
as I found this paragraph at this web page.

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

Thanks so much, glad you like those!

Love the plate rack idea! LOVE them all, actually!

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 :)

I totally agree!
